British tourists board the brand new Celebrity Eclipse cruise ship, which will bring more than 2,000 Britons back home on April 22, 2010, in the northern Spanish Basque town of Getxo. At least 150,000 Britons were stranded by the Thursday to Tuesday lockdown caused by the Icelandic volcano eruption and fears that the ash cloud could cause jet engines to seize up. The Eclipse will sail out of the Port of Miami beginning in winter 2010.
