Celebrity Eclipse Leaves & Saga Sapphire
Celebrity Eclipse said goodbye on the 28th October 2017 after eight summer seasons.  The first Celebrity to be based here rather than do a cruise or two, she would be cruising out of Dublin and Amsterdam during 2018 and be replaced in Southampton by Celebrity Silhouette.  Sapphy was supposed to go at 4pm and Eclipse half an hour later.  John and Roz Kennedy came to see Eclipse off and it was bitterly cold in the wind.  Apart from a bit of traffic, Sapphy was still being loaded leaving Eclipse to sail on time.  A family of swans turned up and the marina pair soon defended their territory.  Sapphy finally sailed at 5.30pm, by which time we were back home.
