Although we've cruised many times with Celebrity, this was our first voyage on the Solstace. It is a beautiful ship and very well maintained. We sailed round trip from Seattle. The crew was very good but no one stood out as exceptional. ... Read more

In all honesty, the BEST thing by far about the cruise was their guest speaker, Brett Nixon. He is a career researcher who was on the Solstice as a collaboration to share his knowledge and research of Alaska & its wildlife through ... Read more

I cruised to Alaska on a similar route 10 years or so ago on Infinity, loved it and was very excited to return this time with my husband who had never been. We chose to sail on Solstice as we love this class of ship and had never been to ... Read more

This was our second trip to Alaska, but offered a better itinerary, with 4 stops, than our first, with two. We especially enjoyed the stop at Icy Strait because it is not nearly as commercialized as the others. As always, the food was ... Read more

The ship is beautiful! The cabins are very nice, the shower, bed and the guys taking care of our room! The transfers from the airport and back to the airport were horrible! I really thought I was going to have to drive the bus back to ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the Alaska scenery, which was breathtaking, and the weather was not too hot. The dining was very good and enjoyed the buffet for breakfast and lunch. It was often too busy to find a seat and some help would have ... Read more

This was my first cruise; a 7 night trip to Alaska to celebrate my 30th birthday. Overall, I really enjoyed it. The itinerary seems fairly standard for cruises in Alaska. We sailed from Vancouver on the 5th, then spent a day at sea ... Read more

First time to Alaska. Agreed on by all participants. We knew going in that it was not a Caribbean cruise, the weather was going to be cool and rainy. It was. Everything was as promised. Nothing was extraordinary, nothing unexpected. No ... Read more

As with all my reviews, this is my opinion, no need for sarcasm or flaming. We've cruised enough times and feel we have a pretty good insight as to what the industry used to be like and how it has changed. Arrival, approximately 11am, ... Read more

This was my 14th cruise, first with Celebrity. 11 have been with Holland America, and 2 with Royal Carribean. I expected it to be similar to Holland America, but was sadly disappointed. The room was small, but well laid-out, and the two ... Read more
