Celebrity Eclipse heading Down Under again in 2022-23

Passengers will be able to sleep in a pontoon floating above Australia’s Great Barrier Reef
Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Eclipse will return to Australia and New Zealand for a second season in 2022-23.

From September 2022 through to April 2023 Celebrity Eclipse will operate 19 different itineraries from Sydney and Auckland, ranging from five to 18 nights, including themed cruises like ‘Sun and Beach Escapes,’ ‘Food and Wine Classics’ and ‘Five Star Getaways.’

The new itineraries have been designed to immerse passengers in the natural wonders of Down Under and in tropical South Pacific ports in Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

Sleeping on the Great Barrier Reef

There will be enhanced on-board and shoreside programming, with an overnight in Cairns with the option to sleep under the stars on a private pontoon floating above the Great Barrier Reef and the opportunity to sample local wines in Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart.

Late departures

There are late departures from the popular ports of Melbourne, Brisbane, Christchurch, Papeete and Maui and a return to the Auckland to Fiji voyage in January, giving New Zealanders a perfect vacation in the holiday season.

Repositioning voyages

Port Arthur, Tasmania’s former notorious penal colony, is a new port of call and there are trans-Pacific sailings at the beginning and end of the season, taking passengers between Honolulu and Sydney across the International Date Line.

Fares cover Wi-Fi, drinks and service charges under Celebrity’s ‘Always Included’ initiative and its ‘Cruise with Confidence’ programme provides flexible cancellations and best price guarantees.
