The Celebrity Eclipse Bars provide plenty of drink options for all types of travelers. From a martini bar to an adult frozen slush venue and a wine bar, there are plenty of specialty drinks to be had during your cruise. So, in the name of research, we set off to sample each bar and drink menu in our traditional “Drink Around the Ship” fashion. See the complete Celebrity Eclipse Bar Guide with plenty of photos and all of the bar menus. Cheers!
Celebrity Eclipse Bar Guide with Menus
Passport Bar – Located right next to the center of the action in the Grand Foyer, the Passport Bar serves select cocktails, beers, and wines. Whether it is watching the ship’s singers and dancers perform a musical number or dancing to the nightly live music from the house band, this central bar is a hub of activity.
This futuristic nightclub is the perfect spot to dance the night away. Open until the wee hours of the morning, you will want to indulge in some classic drinks while the DJ spins your favorite hits. Don’t worry, there is also some comfy furniture when you need to take a break from dancing. The venue also hosts other events like karaoke. During our visit to the venue, the Princess tried the Acai Lemonade, and I sampled the Smoke and Ginger.
Fortunes Casino Bar
If you decide to try your luck at the casino during your cruise on Celebrity Eclipse, then you just may need to grab a drink from the Fortunes Casino Bar. Sip your beverage of choice while playing your favorite slots or table games. This could be a great night if Lady Luck is on your side. Otherwise, you will at least need a drink to drown your losses.
For all the wine lovers out there, Cellar Masters will be your go-to venue. Offering a wide collection of wines from around the world, many included in the Premium beverage package, the sommeliers are ready to guide you on your tasting journey. This is the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink with some newly made cruise friends.
Martini Bar – Possibly the most happening bar onboard a Celebrity ship is the martini bar. Filled with an energetic crowd, and highly talented bartenders, you will probably find yourself frequenting this venue for the specialty drinks and the show. Order up your favorite martini off the menu, then watch as your drink is skillfully prepared by the staff. You will want to have your cameras ready for this one.
This elegant lounge is located at the entrance to the specialty restaurants on Celebrity Eclipse all the way forward of the ship. Grab a pre-dinner cocktail or an after-dinner drink while socializing with friends or enjoying the live music. The Ensemble Lounge will help set the mood for an elegant evening on the ship.
Cafe al Bacio
The go-to venue for java lovers, Cafe al Bacio is your coffee bar at sea. Serving up signature espresso-based drinks, coffee cocktails, and tasty sweet treats, this is the perfect spot to hang out and people watch day or night. Lattes and other specialty coffees/teas are included in both the Classic and Premium beverage packages.
World Class Bar
For those familiar with the Solstice-class ships, the World Class Bar has replaced the former Molecular Bar. Here, expert mixologists craft the freshest made cocktails on the ship. Sampling many of the specialty cocktails on the list, our favorites were the Mystic Ketel One and Johnny Walker Gold. While the beverages were refreshing, we have to say we are still partial to the Molecular Bar.
Complete Cocktail Menu (this is a large file)
This small bar tucked away on Deck 12 offers a signature menu of frozen drinks. With tempting offerings like the Mint Cookie, how could you not want to try each and every one of these frosty concoctions? The best part is that they are all included in the Celebrity Premium beverage package. Unfortunately, the venue was not open during our cruise due to the weather. I guess that means we will have to get back onboard Celebrity Eclipse when the ship is sailing in warmer climates.
Located in the center of the action on the pool deck, you can enjoy your favorite drink of the day while laying poolside and soaking up the sun. A visit to the Pool Bar will provide a refreshing and thirst-quenching treat. While there is no specific menu, you can expect the bartenders to whip up your favorite drinks, along with a selection of beers and wines.
Located outside the Oceanview Cafe, the Oceanview Bar is ready to serve up your favorite drinks during any meal of the day. Whether you want to sip a mimosa with breakfast or grab a beer with lunch, you won’t have to go far. This outdoor venue does not have a specific menu but offers a wide selection of classic spirits, wines, and beers, along with amazing aft views. There is also the Destinations Bar which is located right inside the buffet.
This bar will make you feel like you are the in Caribbean no matter which region of the world you are cruising. That is why we could not resist a frozen cocktail at this outdoor venue. Whether you just want to enjoy the outdoor air and ocean views or grab a bite to eat at the nearby Mast Grill, these bartenders are ready to craft the perfect pina colada for you.
Sky Observation Lounge
This entertainment venue comes alive during the day with cruise life activities like trivia and game shows and at night with themed parties like 80’s night and the ABBA dance party. Good thing the Sky Observation Lounge is also home to another specialty cocktail menu. With drinks named after the constellations, you will have to try all 12 of them.
Amazing views coupled with great specialty drinks, the Sunset Bar is a perfect combination. At this aft facing venue, cruisers can gaze at the horizon while sipping some of the ship’s most unique drinks. Located next to the Lawn Club, the Sunset Bar is also the perfect place to unwind after a day ashore and enjoy a great sunset view. I guess that is how the venue got its name!
With so many great bars and lounges on Celebrity Eclipse, it might be tough to pick your favorite one. Good thing you don’t have to! If you have the Celebrity Cruises’ Premium Beverage Package, then you can pick from almost all of the drinks found on these specialty menus.
