Best deals for Eclipse cruises

//Best deals for Eclipse cruises

Brand new £500 million cruise ship Celebrity Eclipse returned to the UK last night carrying more than 2,000 holidaymakers who had been stranded in Spain.
By this morning, most of those passengers should have finally reached home and the ship has been scrubbed and polished for a very important date . . . her naming eremony.
Just two weeks after prima ballerina Darcey Bussell named P&O’s Azura in Southampton, round-the-world yachtswoman – and breast cancer survivor – Emma Pontin is godmother to the Eclipse, which will be sailing from the UK throughout the summer.
Sister ship Celebrity Equinox was named last year by Daily Mirror Pride of Britain winner Nina Barough, who founded the Walk the Walk cancer charity, and a Celebrity SunWalk will take place this morning to coincide with the ceremony.
