New Postpanamax Ship Celebrity Eclipse for Celebrity Cruises Eemshaven/Papenburg, April 15, 2010 - Today MEYER WERFT delivered the new passenger cruise vessel Celebrity Eclipse to Celebrity Cruises (Miami, USA) in the Dutch port of Eemshaven. The Celebrity Eclipse is the third ship out of a series of five cruise ships the shipyard is building for Celebrity Cruises. MEYER WERFT and Celebrity Cruises have developed and built an extremely eco-friendly ship. A total energy saving of about 30% compared to similar ships is achieved by highly energy-efficient components such as a photovoltaic system, optimised hull design (hydrodynamics), an very efficient underwater coating or an energy-saving lighting system using LEDs.

The ship was designed in close cooperation with the owner, and was optimised by means of computer calculations and model tank tests. Thanks to her slender outlines the ship, with her 17 decks and a pod propulsion system, features a very low fuel consumption and has outstanding manoeuvring and sea-keeping capabilities as well as low noise and vibration levels.
