Twists and Tastes aboard Celebrity Eclipse

Twists and Tastes aboard Celebrity Eclipse

A world-class menu and the mesmerizing acrobats of “Eclipse: The Show” promise cruisers an evening of bodily delights.

Do prime rib dinners and Broadway musicals prompt yawns? How about a post-pasta comedian? Some too-cool-for-school cruisers demand something beyond conventional shipboard nights. They find it when they hop aboard Celebrity Eclipse, where the adventure begins each evening before you lift a fork and soars to lofty heights — literally and figuratively.

Celebrity Eclipse, a 2,850-passenger vessel and one of Celebrity Cruises’ wildly successful Solstice Class ships, provides cruisers with an abundance of innovations. Its iLounge Internet café has row after row of gleaming Apple computers, and inside glam bars, mixologists lure crowds with artisan libations crafted from the finest spirits, fresh-squeezed juices, and exotic herbs. At the Lawn Club, guests kick back on real grass and marvel at the sea. And for lovers of all things edgy, dinner at Qsine, paired with “Eclipse: The Show,” really rock this boat.

Qsine is one specialty restaurant that is truly special, beginning with its décor. The color scheme is mostly black-and-white, with occasional and vivid bursts of orange. The seating is reminiscent of the Mad Hatter’s tea party, with chairs of varying heights and styles and upside-down table lamps transformed to chandeliers.
