CELEBRITY ECLIPSE off Livorno






Cruise Ship "CELEBRITY ECLIPSE" off Livorno last week in a dramatic sunset display. I was on board cruise ferry IKARUS PALACE, please check my post about this ferry here, and just approaching the Italian port of Livorno, used by cruise ships for their Firenze and Pisa excursions, couldn't believe my luck when this beautiful new cruise ship sailed passed us on our port side, what a moment, the sea was so calm and the temperature outside despite being 7.30 pm was around 29 C, remarkable, will never forget it. Going back to the ship, she was built by the prestigious MEYER WERFT in 2010, she has 122.000 GRT, has capacity for 2800 passengers and has a top speed of 24 knots. "CELEBRITY ECLIPSE" became very popular with the British Market since brand new, during the UK shutdown airspace due to the Iceland's volcano eruption in 2010, "CELEBRITY ECLIPSE" was used to the rescue of about 2000 British Tourists stranded in Spain, what a gesture from their owners, the famous CELEBRITY CRUISES, shame I was travelling from Spain by car during the period.
