Tweet to win with Celebrity Cruises


Celebrity Cruises if offering Twitter users an exclusive opportunity for a sneak preview of its newest ship, Celebrity Eclipse that will be based in Southampton this summer.


The competition on the micro-blogging site is open to anyone with the prize a place on the 26-mile journey from its German shipyard on the Rivers Ems to The Netherlands.


Eclipse is the third in the line’s Solstice-class of ships that are packed full of developments, most notable a real lawn on the deck for playing bowls and croquet.


Celebrity Cruises head of marketing Jo Briody said: “We’re offering avid cruise fans online the chance to extend their social media interaction to the ultimate cruise lover’s experience.


“Anyone using twitter can tell the @CelebrityUK twitter feed why they should get the chance to see new ship, Celebrity Eclipse, before anyone else.


“We’re looking for succinct creativity, recognition of the innovations onboard the ship, and to engage with the biggest fans of Celebrity Cruises. It really is the chance to tweet your way to the trip of a lifetime.”


The River Ems trip takes place in mid-March 2010, over a month before the new ship arrives in the UK for inaugural celebrations and naming ceremony in Southampton.


The 2,800-passenger ship has to navigate the river backwards, and navigate locks in the River Ems where there is only a few meters to spare either side.


The competition closes at midnight on February 14 with the winning Tweet picked out by Briody, tweeters from the @CruiseCriticUK twitter feed, and cruise tweeter and blogger @CaptGreybeard.
