My wife & I had our first experience on the Millennium when it stayed at the dock in AK. The defenseless dock check-in worker put four handicapped people right on the ship even though over 2800 crazy screamers were waiting on the dock. ... Read more

My husband and I are regular cruisers. We love the convenience of unpacking only once and visiting different ports of call. This trip was special because of Solstice’s Master, Captain Tasos Kafetzis. He was a hoot! I don’t ... Read more

An Alaskan cruise was on our bucket list, and as we get older and a bit less mobile, we decided to go for it. We chose Seattle for a round-trip experience because it was easier. No regrets, but a couple of cautions. The airport is a ... Read more

This is my 3rd time on Celebrity. I have also been on Holland America 3 times, once on Royal Caribbean, Regent and Seaborn. I know that Celebrity is trying to compete with those latter two lines that are all inclusive, hence offering ... Read more

Travelling on a cruise without our children was a first for my wife and myself. We had a wonderful trip. Three years ago we cruised on the Disney Wonder to Alaska, and we had our kids with us. This experience might have been even ... Read more

As this was a gift from our daughter and family for a special birthday we really had no input into the choice of cruise line, however we are so glad the travel agent helped her choose Celebrity Infinity. Although we are really well ... Read more

Alaska is one of those must do places, as is Canada and the Rockies. This cruise allowed me to see Alaska, Whales, The Hubbard Glacier and ticked all the boxes. I feel I must give a special mention to our dining room staff. Waiters ... Read more

We chose Celebrity because it was one of the only 7-day, round-trip options from Vancouver. Overall we were very happy with the cruise. We had a room with a small veranda and while it was cramped for two adults and two children, it was not ... Read more

We are Platinum level Princess cruisers, but we did not decide to make our third trip to Alaska until late in the spring and Princess was sold out so we decided to try Celebrity. We were quite pleased with the Celebrity Concierge level ... Read more

This was our third cruise and I rate the Solstice's crew and staff easily the best of the three: better than Crystal Serenity's and RC's Oasis of the Seas. Didn't try Solstices speciality restaurants, but overall food was nearly as good as ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. We were Aqua class so boarding time was 1030, and we were on the ship by 11 and pretty much had the entire buffet to ourselves. From the time we boarded until we left, the service by the crew was prompt and ... Read more

The Celebrity Solstice is stunning, and has a wide variety of activities. We decided to do spa treatments, and also purchase passes for the Persian Garden which we used every day. There is not much like laying on heated tile benches ... Read more
