Eclipse Comes Home with Stranded Brits

Happy British passengers arrived in Southampton today (upper photo) aboard the new Celebrity Eclipse which delayed its inaugural festivities to transport British and Irish citizens who were stranded abroad when British airports were closed. Celebrity's brand new vessel made a quick trip to Bilbao (Spain) to pick up more than 2,200 (shown in lower photo) passengers on Thursday. Most were on packaged holidays in Spain and were experiencing the cruise experience for the first time courtesy of Celebrity Cruises.
