Cabin 9211
Would recommend this cabin. Being on the part that bulges out you get a good view up the side of the ship and are shielded fom the winds. Also it is very near the lifts in the middle of the ship and the Card Room is close by giving you a good marker when going back to your cabin.

Cabin B8251
Our cabin was just back of midships was very spacious bed was very comfortable with rounded bottom edges. We had a sofa to relax on and a good size balcony . Bathroom no bad but shower cubicle very good with 2 sliding doors (no curtains). The water mixer was the best(set once for whole cruise). Plenty of storage space for the 2 of us. Our cabin stewards leroy and dan were very very good. Also liked the night light in the bathroom (like home).

Cabin 7246
Celebrity X Modern Luxury Cruise Style! This is their new motto as seen on T.V. or the internet. If you booked an inside cabin, window, we choose a balcony. Now settle for scratchy T.P. and tissues, faded small robes, and worn out towels. Gone are the luxury aquatic spa therapy items. The room attendants were working very hard and we truly appreciated both of them. They kept our worn tired room clean. No longer do they fold towels into crafty animals. In room meals varied each day and we always ordered the same. Would receive a call to see how our breakfast was that morning. No way, would I give them the truth for fear of a breakfast (it was already cold, hard fruit and super thin bacon). The menu has up charges for better selection. The breakfast buffet proved to be our best choice. Coffee on the ship was either too strong or too weak and not always hot. The Veranda was nice size, railing window, chairs, table was dirty and large tear in the flooring could cause a problem. Veranda scheduled to be cleaned! Oops, missed our room. The rumor on the ship was that there (many passengers sick) stabilizer problems. This was causing severe sickness/balance problems for many on these 5 days at sea. My Husband has two knee replacements; he needed a cane and my hand to steady him. Now back home his knees are back to normal. We canceled our excursion like the snorkeling on Maui. Being tendered was a scary experience with one woman falling down when entering the boat. I tried to use the pool the first day at sea and the waves were at least 6 feet high, the water in the pool (closed) splashed out from one side to the other. No, this after 10 cruises have I never experienced this before. We cruised on the Solstice three years ago and this time was disappointing. We were celebrating our Golden anniversary. We booked this Hawaiian cruise 18 months ago, knowing it caters to older cruisers. Yes, the repositioning of the Solstice from Alaska to Australia was not a scheduled feature so no Hawaiian food, music, entertainment flowers, clothes, coffee. Gone is the famous brunch buffet appreciated by every seasoned guest on repositioning ships. Ship remains shiny, clean in common areas. The Shops were clearing out old stock. We booked first dining at 5:30 and had the worst food experience, rude grabby plate waiter Poltan, and his assistant Latia proved to be incompetent. The waiter gave us four different menus. Poltan read off his favorite choices for the night. I asked why he didn’t mention any item on my menu. My husband was given a blank one first. The prelude of what would be many disasters. The waiter continued to serve plates to the wrong person, neglected the items ordered, minute portions and some choices were horrible. We were given a table next to a pole, we moved to the outside portion of the table. Gee whiz, you would have thought we wanted a better view. No way! that a portion of the dining room is for new Suite Class guests who will be indulged with a new and exclusive restaurant Luminae. Luminae offers a deliciously exclusive dining experience like no other. They have you packed in like sardines on what’s left of the original dining area. One waiter bumped my chair so hard I almost fell out of it. This continued numerous times with softer bumps. It was also very loud and noisy. We went to the dining area one afternoon and met the Head Dining Manager who is not very friendly and capable of changing our dining in 3 minutes. We requested a different table. There are no tables available for early dining. Nope, late dining wasn’t our first choice but it worked. We met our new waiter Camilo and his assistant D. They were a joy. The portions are so small we ordered more soups and salads. They are following the lead on the Food Network with small portions being the in thing now. We enjoyed the hamburgers and fries at the Mask Grill and ice cream at the buffet. Aqua Spa Café now charges for yogurt parfaits. Gone are the many choices like the nuts and dried fruits and replaced with canned fruits, small muffins and hard fresh fruit and melons! The buffet announced a Hawaiian menu. I looked around and finally asked where it was located Sweet/sour Chicken rice. Charging for pay per view $13.00 and 18% gratuity fees, inferior entertainment, taped ballroom music, and some singers near the elevators before dining located. We located the sweet and chicken and rice. We waited 10 days after we arrived home to contact someone about our cruise. I contacted guest relations representative: Kara Frank. The items I mentioned above were noted and she contacted me a week later to inform me these are the new company standards. The new dining guideline now represents Food Network portions. She encouraged us to take another cruise with them with absolutely no compensation. Earlier this year we sailed to Alaska on Holland America. We noticed portion sizes were smaller yet delicious all of the time. Ship was very clean, roomy placement of tables so everyone enjoyed the large windows. We enjoyed breakfast in our room everyday, wonderful service and great breakfast menu. This ship is scheduled for major remodeling soon. The Celebrity Solstice is no longer a 5 star ship!

Cabin 7290
Cabins 7288, 7290, and 7292, Cat. 1A, were perfect with the larger balconies on the aft bump-out. Veranda dividers were opened so we had easy access between cabins and often enjoyed coffee or drinks on the veranda, even an early dinner from room service before our evening port of Victoria.

Great cabin...spacious and extra large verandah because we were located on "the bump". Near elevators/stairs.

Cabin 8238

Excellent location midships near the elevators. We always choose this location to cut the time walking along passages, and as most of the activities are in this area of the ship, we can get to wherever easily and quickly.
There is no noise at all from the elevators and the view from the balcony is unobstructed as it is in the bulge of the ship.

Cabin 9292

This is a wonderful cabin: close to the elevators, bed by the balcony, and a huge balcony.

Cabin 7237

The room was nicely laid out with great visibility. Our only complaint was the noise from the elevators and the bands playing on deck 3. Perhaps the solo performer after 10 would be a better choice.

Cabin 8240

Nice room but you are smack in the middle of the dreaded Celebrity "X". Not a huge deal but you couldn't see anything when you were lying in bed. What a first world problem. ;)

Cabin 8279

We were on Vista Deck in cabin 8279 which is on the Hump. this was a great location and we experienced no noise other than the odd door shutting next to us. I am not sure what we were expecting as we heard cabins were pretty small. NOthing could be further from the truth..this cabin was bigger than the hotel room we had in Seattle and having the balcony made it seem less small as well. We found plenty of room for our clothes and puting our cases under the bed. Of course there were only two of us so cannot comment if there were 4 in the room..might be a bit of a tight fit. Overall though, great cabin and we have chosen a hump cabin again but this time on the starboard side and facing forward instead of aft.

Cabin 9270

Cabin 9270: Great cabin. We were in Cabin 9270 with a large balcony. Couch is near window and bed closer to bathroom in this cabin. Some cabins are reverse of this. Great cabin. Bed was perfect. No big canyon in the middle like some cruise ship beds where two beds are shoved together. We were near game room but never heard any noise from that area.

Cabin 6232

This was a great cabin, with unobstructed views from the balcony and the bathroom compared to some we have had was wonderful. You could actually bend over and pick up the soap from the floor.

Cabin 8230
Our stateroom was lovely we had an extra large balcony thanks to cruise critic research we had done and we were first off the midsection hump going forward. We worried that the deeper balcony might make the room dark but it didn't and was great having a larger balcony we only wish we had taken a hammick. The location was ideal as we were close to the elevators but far enough away to have no noise from them or the atrium. The room was well laid out with clever storage ideas and we liked the glass shower doors.

Cabin 7237
Great location, on the hump of the ship, not overlooked at all and not obscured by the 'X' across the side of the ship. Perfect for privacy for those quiet sunbathing moments, and perfect for access to stairs and elevators...I would happily stay in this cabin again. Plenty of storage space, but no shower gel so take your own (but you do get shampoo provided) !

Cabin 8228
8228 - right near the lift in mid ship. Great place to be. No noise at all from people coming and going from the lift. Great to be centre of the ship. Stateroom itself was compact but perfect.This stateroom has uninterrupted views out to see and not overlooked. To sit out and watch the world go by is just perfect. A balcony is a must have. 8228 is port side so great views when sailing into destinations. Would recommend this stateroom but did not see other staterooms so cannot compare.

Cabin 8228
Our cabin 8228 was in the perfect location! Close the main elevator bank, no noise at all from either room on each side, or from the hall, above or below us. Lots of storage space too! Larger balcony than most! Hop on the main elevators to be brought directly to the Oceanview Cafe, the main dining room, and the pool! Great location and we'd book that room again!

7260: We loved our balcony, which is on the hump facing forward. We also loved being so close to the elevators on a relatively quiet floor.

Cabin 8232
Cabin 8232 and 8234. Loved how we could combine the 2 cabins with the outside hall divider - GREAT idea. Overall layout and cabin is wonderful. Only downside was the Pillows - VERY disappointed in the small pillows and hardly any stuffing/filler.

Fabulous Solstice Grumpy100
Cabin 8258. We had a port side balcony, mid ship in the area where the ship bends where the X for celebrity is. It was a great location with ample space for everything a great shower with glass doors, and an oversized balcony. This was our best cabin ever and the biggest balcony also. Close to the central elevators but not too close

Cabin 7211
Our stateroom was very conveniently located near the elevators mid-ship. Excellent bathroom, perfect shower. The dim light always on in the bathroom served very well during the night. Plenty of space to stow clothing and belongings. Bed was excellent though we pulled the covers off except for a single sheet and then put a blanket over that and slept cooler. TV very good though you have to watch what button you press on the remote. Another one of our group suddenly found that she had ordered $900 in photos and had to go down and get it wiped from her bill. Ship's location on the TV a bit goofy at times. Stateroom was slanted inward, so the balcony was big, but it did catch a lot of wind being so situated. Would like a speaker in the stateroom which picked up shipboard announcements and comments from the captain.

The shower bar in the bathroom is a nice added touch for the ladies. It really does wonders if you come across rough seas.

8160: great cabin and location, very close to the elevators and very, very quiet! The bed was comfortable. The closet is big enough,a bit close to the couch, but no problem to access. We liked the extra storage above the bed. The bathroom was quite spacious. We LOVED the balcony... extra roomy!

Cabin 8253
I've selected the 1A balcony at cabin 8253. It was at the hump with forward view. I love the oversized balcony. It's 8' wide by 10' deep on the shorter side, and 13' deep on the longer side. It's way bigger than any other balcony cabins I've had. Again comparing to the Grand Priness, I had a mini-suite but the balcony is not as big as the Solstice. The cabin was very good sized and efficient layout. The sofa served as a wonderful bench for my 72 yr old mom to lay her suitcase. I guess most senior like to pack and unpack their luggages everyday like my mom. So we just leave it on the sofa and she can sit on the rest of the sofa and pack her stuff everyday. The washroom was very modern and clean. Love the arched shower + doors. Lots of shelves and drawers for storage. The tray on the vanity was very useful to lay all my bottles & makeups. Nice touch. The only small complaint about this cabin is the adjorning staff locker adjacent to the washroom. The locker door opens on the other side (close to 8255) but everyday we can hear the opening and closing of that door. The noise was so loud that we sometimes thought someone has opened our cabin door. Also we had multiple problems with our door key/lock. We complained to the guest relations multiple times, they fixed it but when we return to the cabin, the key doesn't work. After a while, we stop fixing it. Just ask the room steward to opening it for us. They're around all the time like phantoms!

Small room, small closet, nice shower with hard clamshell doors. Huge balcony. Nice table and chairs (adjustable). Near midship elevators, but no noise. View foreward obstructed by "hump". Overlooks lifeboats, but they don't obstruct the view. No wind problems. Night light in bath.

Cabin 7262

7262- smaller balcony than adjacent staterooms 7260 and 7264.
All walls on ship are a bit thin- not well insulated. Cabin was a bit hot. Have to keep turning air up.
Don't flip Master Switch off or you won't be able to turn on ANY lights including in the bathroom. Glad I learned that one Day One.

Cabin 8226
Cabin 8226 - few steps from the elevator but absolutely no noise whatsoever froms the elevators due to glass sliding doors. Loved the convenience of being so close to the elevators. Our cabin had the sofa by the balcony doors and it was nice to sit and relax on the days it was too windy to be outside. Our balcony was huge due to being on the angle looking forward. We loved that we could see the bridge. Storage was ample and we loved that there is a night light in the bathroom. There could have been more insulation between cabins but most passengers were quiet and mindful not to disturb others.

Cabin 1676
Cabin 1676 is aft. The bed is closer to the bathroomthe first time we've had this arrangement, but honestly made no difference to us. This is the smallest aft deck that we've ever had, but our past cruise history is mainly RC. There is somewhat of a soot issue, but not enough that I felt I needed to complain about itthey rinsed the decks off daily. It's enough of an issue that they've placed a door mat just inside of the sliding doors to protect the cabin carpet. But, I would still choose this cabin again, soot & all, over a side cabin. The closets and drawers were completely adequate for our needs. The bath was lovely, including the sink! My husband used an electric shaver and never complained about the sink. For the ladies, I found washing my face to be easier than ever with this sink and fixtures. A small recommendation for future guests...in the closet, they provide you with many wooden hangers in the closetif you don't use all of them, take the empty ones down and store them somewhere (floor, under bed, where ever!)the hangers rattle all night as the ship rolls. You'll have a much quieter night if you do this right away!
