USA. Giant cruise ship Celebrity Eclipse cancels first voyage to assist UK repartiation
quote:

New cruise ship Celebrity Eclipse has cancelled the first leg of her launch celebrations — scheduled to begin on April 22 — in order to assist U.K. travelers whose return from their Easter break has been halted due to the impact of ash clouds from the eruption of the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in Iceland. Celebrity Cruises is working with U.K. tour operators to collect these stranded vacationers affected by the airport closures and subsequent flight cancellations that have affected travellers in Northern Europe.

Emotional Naming Ceremony For Celebrity Eclipse
quote:

(9:55 a.m. EDT) -- Celebrity Eclipse was named in Southampton yesterday in a moving ceremony during which the cruise line reconfirmed its commitment to raising funds for breast cancer charities.

A sunny day on Britain's south coast got off to a festive start, with the first ever Celebrity Sunwalk, a sponsored event organised in conjunction with Walk The Walk, a breast cancer charity that began a collaboration with Celebrity last year when its founder, Nina Barough, was chosen as godmother to Eclipse's sister ship, Equinox. Eclipse's godmother, yachtswoman Emma Pontin, also battled the disease.
