Firstly, we loved the ship. The Solstice is immaculate, well looked after, public and cabins beautifully done. The restaurants were very very good considering the turnover. We never had an even ordinary meal - the food just got better ... Read more

Prior to this cruise we had sailed only on Royal Caribbean. We have always heard that Celebrity was a great cruise line and being under the umbrella of RC we thought we would choose it for our special anniversary. Royal had a couple of ... Read more

After being on Constellation and Infinity, we were expecting a major step up to the Solstice class. Way too many staff were disinterested or rude. I was stunned by the obscene pricing increases on drinks, an obvious railroad into a ... Read more

The ship is very clean and well maintained. From the first evening in the mdr, the food was consistently poor quality. The same meat was served over and over, whether in the mdr, Cafe, or speciality restaurants. From terrible coffee to raw ... Read more

The ship layout is very easy to get around and ability to get from front of ship to rear without changing levels was a nice change. Overall food was above scale, and options for finer dining was a nice option for a longer cruise. ... Read more
