Celebrity Cruises Eclipse

From wiki,,,

Celebrity Eclipse and her sisters offer a wide variety of stateroom categories, including Celebrity Cruises' signature ConciergeClass and the new AquaClass.

Onboard, passengers will enjoy many facilities, most of which are used for various events throughout the cruise and most are identical to those of other Celebrity Solstice-class vessels. As for dining there is no shortage of restaurants to choose from - there are multiple dining areas including the Moonlight Sonata (main dining room), BLU (exclusive dining room of guests booked in Aqua Class, decorated in slightly different colors than BLU on the Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox), Cafe al Bacio, the Oceanview Cafe, the Mast Grill and the Continental and European-inspired Murano and Tuscan Grille which are also found on other Celebrity Solstice-class vessels. Celebrity Cruises introduced a new specialty dining venue, Qsine, on the Celebrity Eclipse. Some of these do come as an extra fee to guests. Also on board the ship is the Aquaspa and Solarium, an adults-only area designed for relaxation and rejuvenation for the over-16s only. Another exclusive to the Eclipse and the rest of her Solstice Class sister ships is the Lawn Club, an area of real grass that is cut nearly everyday and where activities are held, such as boules, miniature golf and giant Jenga.

The lawn wraps around another Celebrity Solstice Class exclusive - the Hot Glass Show. This is an area where hot glass is blown at sea by professionals from the Corning Museum of Glass, and shows are held at various points throughout the day at no extra cost to the guests. The studio is all electric which is unusual for a glass blowing studio, but for safety reasons flames needed to be kept to a minimum on the ship (hence the electric design). This studio is very well equipped with tools for glass blowing despite it being on a ship, a fact that the professionals there note. Of course being at sea makes the glass blowing much more difficult - sudden winds can cool the glass too quickly and sea salt can be corrosive to the materials used - but the professionals have all had much experience of glass blowing and the majority of the pieces that start to be created make it to the end of the process. A few of the pieces are auctioned off at the end of the cruise to raise money for the museum's scholarship fund, but otherwise the pieces made are not available to buy; instead some of the pieces are taken by the gaffers, and sometimes the pieces are raffled off for free to the audience of the show.

As for other facilities, there are pools, a casino, the Eclipse Theatre, bars including the Martini Bar (with a bar made of ice)and Cellar Masters, gift shops, a library, an art gallery where the art and glass auctions take place and other Celebrity Trademarks and industry-standard amenities. On April 26, 2010 the Celebrity Eclipse launched the iLounge, an internet cafe and an Apple product retailer where classes are held throughout the cruise and some products are available to buy.[10]
