Celebrity Eclipse will be the first major cruise ship to homeport Dublin

Celebrity Eclipse will be the first major cruise ship to homeport Dublin

Celebrity Cruises is to be the first major cruise line to use Dublin as a homeport when Eclipse, one of its Solstice-class ships, is based here for a mini-season during early summer 2018.  Celebrity Cruises are expected to boost Dublin's economy with their cruises with an estimated €6million injection to the local economy. 

The 2,800-plus passenger cruise ship will sail from Dublin for five northern Europe cruises between late April to the end of June 2018.  More than 14,000 people are expected to start their cruise holidays from Dublin on a Celebrity Cruises ship in 2018, many will come from the US.  Irish cruise specialists e-Travel are currently offering packages for Celebrity Eclipse from €1289pps for an 8 night Norwegian Fjords cruise and from €1339pps for a 10 night Iceland and Ireland cruise.  For something really special, combine a must-see world sporting event with a modern luxury cruise from Dublin to Amsterdam. First port of call is beautiful Paris, where you’ll enjoy VIP seats for the ladies’ singles final of the French Open then sail on through the British Isles, waking up nearly every morning in a new port full of exciting discoveries.  This package starts at €2125 pps.

For sheer convenience and a stress-free start to a modern luxury holiday, these round-trip cruises to the Norwegian Fjords or Iceland can’t be beaten. Think no long flights, lengthy airport delays or tiresome transfers, plus more space for luggage and duty-free shopping!  And to have such sailings from Ireland on the flagship Celebrity Eclipse is really something special. 

More than 180,000 cruise passengers have passed through Dublin Port in 2016 during more than 100 cruise ship calls.  Celebrity Cruises’ Solstice-class ships are the newest in its fleet, introduced between 2008 and 2012.  The company has won several awards, particularly for its food and wine, and boasts the largest and rarest collection of wine at sea plus onboard restaurants overseen by a Michelin-starred executive chef.  Celebrity Cruises is part of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, the second largest cruise business in the world, and has a fleet of 12 ships with two new ships on order, scheduled to join the fleet in 2018 and 2020.
