The Eclipse joins its sister ships Solstice and Equinox. Her maiden voyage was in November 2010 and like her siblings the ship boasts that 85% of all staterooms have sweeping veranda views. Celebrity Eclipse also features a half-acre Lawn Club with real grass, chic dining venues and theatrical productions.
A new feature on this ship is the Celebrity iLounge, an Internet cafe, something that many guests had asked to be part of their Celebrity Cruise experience. The ship's AquaSpa Center is what the company calls. "...the largest, most luxurious spa afloat." The Fitness Center offers specialized classes and private instruction from certified personal trainers.
Speaking of trainers, Bob Harper and The Biggest Loser folks expect to bring you what you really paid for: interaction with contestants from previous seasons on the television program bringing new ways to make your life tough but your weight-loss experience extra special.
Passengers will have the opportunity to learn about health and wellness from The Biggest Loser experts, as the ship makes its way through popular Eastern Caribbean ports including San Juan and St. Maarten. Former contestants are there to help motivate and inspire passengers during mixers, seminars and more. Of course, when you book this cruise you'll get to dine from the Biggest Loser-approved menu, and you'll even have the chance to attend a healthy cooking class.
Guests of those that want to have the Biggest Loser experience will be able to order off the standard menu, which offers the usual 24-hour snacking, something that dieters will have to ignore for the duration of the trip.
The cruise begins and ends in Miami, Florida. Within two days the Eclipse docks in San Juan, Puerto Rico for eight hours, prior to sailing onward to the next destination. The city offers, among other sight-seeing destinations, five-star hotels with casino gambling and nightly entertainment.
The next port of call is Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Duty-free shops galore greet visitors along with some of the most breathtaking white sand beaches on the aquamarine Caribbean Sea.
The final stop for Eclipse guests is Phillipsburg, St. Maarten, Netherland Antilles. This island paradise is a product of both French and Dutch cultures with two distinct experiences depending on what side of the island you visit.
Rates for the "The Biggest Loser" cruise experience on the Eclipse begin at $1,295. Dates for the cruise are November 12-19, 2011
