Celebrity Eclipse
Celebrity Eclipse

One hip ship: sophisticated spaces, trendy cuisine, and individualized attention, including your own concierge.

Leaves from: Miami

Sails to: Eastern Caribbean (Puerto Rico; St. Maarten; St. Kitts)

Family Features: The top-deck Lawn Club has a half-acre of real grass for putting, croquet, and bocce. Watch master crafters at the Hot Glass Show, or cheer for the ship's top chefs at cook-offs. Need a computer fix? The iLounge Internet cafe has 26 workstations; take a video class and create a blockbuster.

Teen Time: XClub keeps kids busy with video games, a mocktail bar, and nightly disco parties. Teens can also join pool Olympics, team trivia, and ship-wide scavenger hunts. Outside the club, astronomy and sushi-making lessons are available through the Celebrity Life educational program.

Parent Portal: Let an iPad be your guide—borrow one from the ship—as you tour its extensive art collection. Or join one of the Celebrity Life classes: Cha-cha-cha your way through ballroom dancing or learn cool concoctions in Mixology 101. At night, hit the Martini bar or go wine tasting at Cellar Masters.

Innovative Eateries: At QSine restaurant ($30 per person), artful presentations make eating fun: Chitinis (Chinese food in mini martini glasses), Popcorn Fish & Chips (served in a red-and-white popcorn box), and Sushi Lollipops (raw fish on a stick). For dessert, try the tiny candied apples or individual cookie jars.
