The Celebrity Eclipse is putting the glitz and glamour of its inaugural voyage on hold to assist those stranded from Iceland’s angry volcano. The cruise line canceled the ships inaugural sailing and is ferrying more than 2,000 weary travelers from Bilbao, Spain to the U.K. (a brand new ship sure beats sleeping at the airport hotel). The second leg of the ship’s launch celebration and naming ceremony will continue as planned, followed by a series of short cruises to Ireland. Eclipse will make her way to the U.S. this November and will be stationed in Miami for the winter cruise season.
