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

This was our second cruise on Celebrity and first the Solstice and was truly as magical and memorable for a lifetime. Cruising with liner like Celebrity for us is the only way to holiday in the future. Unpacking once and the cities coming ... Read more

Our most recent cruise on CELEBRITY SOLTICE from HI to Sydney was 17 days long – give or take a day for the crossing of the International Date Line. The Ship is lovely but didn’t offer the same amenities at a reasonable price ... 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

First time to Hawaii and first cruise with celebrity. Overall it was great. If we had to do it over again, we would have flown to Kauai a day or two before embarkation. (Kauai wasn't on itinerary). It was really hard for myself and DW to ... Read more

We embarked at 4 pm on 2 November at Honolulu with departure scheduled for 11 pm. Luckily we did not try to embark earlier as other passengers told us that there was a total blockage at around 1 pm. Things went downhill from there. A ... Read more
