Eclipse 8/18 sailing delayed arrival into Sitka

Recommended Posts

Greetings from the lovely Celebrity Eclipse!


Around noon ship time (US Pacific), Captain Leo announced that due to trouble with engine at full speed, our arrival into Sitka on Tuesday, 8/20 will be delayed for at least 1 1/2 hours with an update expected this evening around 6:30pm.


We'll let y'all know how it shakes out 😉 First 24 hours have been awesome ... enjoying very cool temperatures and fantastic shipboard crew & staff. Also, even though we only had 15 people sign up for a Cruise Critic Connections party, they arranged for a get-together in Masters Cellar, deck 4 at 10:15 today. Wonderful table set up with juices, coffee, tea, water and pastries. Simon the CD, Clint the HD, and Erika the event coordinator all attended. Unfortunately only 10 of us showed up ... please folks, support these events and show Celebrity how awesome we Cruise Critic passengers are! Thanks!

So to update, we arrived in Sitka just one hour late. Our time in port has been exteneded one hour as well. Very little impact in reality.


The letter we received in our stateroom said they are "in the process of resolving the issue" affecting top speed, whatever that means. It doesn't appear there will be any additional delays. If anything changes, I'll let ya know! We're going to check out some eagles ....

Have a great day!

I’ll be following this as well, since we are boarding Eclipse on Sunday. I hope everything is resolved already and the rest of your cruise is great!
