Celebrity Eclipse – the third Celebrity Cruises’ Solstice-Class ship -- features the first “Celebrity iLounge.”

Designed to offer a hip, modern lounge ambience, the space also provides what Celebrity guests said they wanted most in an Internet café -- easy access to the Internet, inspiring classes and new products.

Located on deck six of Celebrity Eclipse, the Celebrity iLounge is composed of three main areas:

(1) Computers: At 26 contemporary workstations, guests may check their e-mail, keep in touch with social media connections or print boarding passes;

(2) Retail Space: This area offers cruisers the opportunity to see and try out the latest MacBooks, iPods and accessories, as well as purchase those products.

(3) Enrichment/Entertainment Center: As part of the line's “Celebrity Life” series of enrichment and entertainment options, Celebrity will offer new courses in the iLounge do-it-yourself photo books, movie editing and web design, through programs including iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD and iWeb. Certified staff will offer guests tips on Mac or iPod usage.

“Our new Celebrity iLounge is a direct outgrowth of our ‘Designed for you’ brand platform, and our commitment to listen to our guests and offer experiences and programs expressly designed for them,” said Celebrity’s President and CEO Dan Hanrahan.

The Celebrity iLounge also will be a feature of Celebrity Silhouette, which launches in 2011, and a fifth Solstice-class ship, setting sail in 2012.
