Thanks for posting this, I have been wondering when the itineraries would be made available.

I got a card in the mail that bookings will open for the Celebrity Eclipse for Captain's Club members on March 3, 2009. The Eclipse will be sailing Europe and the Caribbean in 2010. So anyone who has sailed once on Celebrity, Azamara or is platinum or higher on Royal Caribbean can get a Captain's Club number if they don't already have one. I've already been on the Solstice, have the Equinox booked, and really like this class of ships from Celebrity.

This got released this morning about the inaugural season of Celebrity Eclipse. I'll definitely be going on this ship as I loved the Solstice, and will be on the Equinox this fall. The prices will be in dollars, this came out on a British press release. Have a great Monday,
Cruises on Celebrity Eclipse from Southampton will go on sale next Tuesday as Celebrity Cruises prepares to launch the ship two and a half months earlier than scheduled.
Celebrity Eclipse, the first ship the cruiseline has operated targeted at the British market, will now depart the UK on its maiden voyage on April 29.
Cruises go on sale to Celebrity's Captain's Club members on March 3 and across the board on March 10 and lead in at £499 per person for a four-night mini-cruise to Cork.
Celebrity Eclipse will also be sailing 14-night cruises to Scandinavia and Russia, with an overnight in St Petersburg and two-week Spanish Mediterranean voyages, with an overnight in Palma. Prices lead in at £1,399 and £1,299 per person respectively.
There are 11-night Canary Island cruises in May, June and September from £1,099 per person and a single 16-night Eastern Mediterranean voyage visiting Venice, Dubrovnik and Split from £1,349 per person.
Associate vice-president and general manager UK and Ireland Jo Rzymowska said the UK office has a £1 million "trade push" marketing budget for Eclipse to help agents sell the ship. The earlier launch means there is an extra 40,000 passenger capacity for the season.
Eclipse is a sister ship to Celebrity Solstice, which launched last year, and Celebrity Equinox, which will be named in Southampton in July.
Rzymowska said agents will have the chance to see Equinox during a week of inaugural events at the south coast port. In a first for parent company Royal Caribbean, some will also be able to bring clients to see the ship.
She said: "We want to show people that it might be a large ship, but has the feel of a boutique hotel. The Solstice-class ships are about to put Celebrity on the map in the UK by offering a fresh alternative in the luxury cruise market."
Rzymowska said Celebrity is launching a three-week campaign promoting Eclipse on Classic FM starting March 10. On the same date, Celebrity's first dedicated Europe and Mediterranean brochure will be in agencies.

Anyone interested in attempting a group for one of these sailings?

I'd love to do it, but I want to see the itineraries that will be coming out within the next week. I know the bookings will open on March 3, 2009 to Captain's Club members. I'd love to combine it with a trip to see friends in London. I'll post the itineraries as soon I am emailed them.

Here's some more info on the 2010 season from a British website. New ports to try, should make this a good seller. Kelcie
Celebrity Cruises announces that Celebrity Eclipse, the third-ship in the new Solstice class, and the first to sail for a full season from Southampton, goes on sale at noon on 10 March. The five-star contemporary ship, uniquely designed with interiors by Tihany Design, offers five different European and Mediterranean cruising itineraries from April 2010 designed for travellers who prefer to depart from the UK.
In response to demand for new destinations and varying cruise lengths, Celebrity Eclipse will offer 26 cruises, a combination of short and longer itineraries. With sailings from four-night taster cruises to Cork and 16-night Eastern Mediterranean cruises. The first season of Celebrity Eclipse features new ports of call for Celebrity Cruises including Toulon (Provence), Cagliari (Sardinia) and Malaga (Spain). Plus, the 2010 summer season of Celebrity Eclipse also includes overnight stays in Palma de Mallorca on a 14-night Spanish Mediterranean cruise, and St Petersburg and Copenhagen on a 14-night Scandinavia and Russia cruise.
In summer 2010 Celebrity Cruises will base all three of its new Solstice-class ships in the European region as the brand seeks to continue growth outside North America. Sister ships Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox will operate from Civitavecchia (Rome) and synonymous to Celebrity Cruises, guests can enjoy lawn sports whilst at sea on the real grass lawn onboard any of the Solstice-class ships.
