We chose the Solstice as we went on the Celebrity Millennium eight years ago which was an amazing experience. On Embarkment it was lengthy waiting time which in fairness couldn't be any better as there are so many people boarding so ... Read more

We had to toss up between a Good or Very Good rating - why - mainly because of the Main Dining Room experience of an evening. The service was good however the food was far from acceptable, especially after sailing on RCL's Legend of the ... Read more

This cruise was selected as we had done the identical cruise, same time, same ship, last year (2015). On the basis of that particular cruise we were (and are) in a position to make an unbiased comparison to both cruises. Itinerary was the ... Read more

Our first time with Celebrity - in no hurry to go back. With the exception of the wonderful very hard working cabin staff, our overall experience on this ship was generally disappointing - average service, disinterested staff, average ... Read more

We had cruised around Australia and New Zealand a few years ago and while we wanted to go back, we dreaded all the flying. Our answer was to fly over and cruise back. After looking at all the options we decided to do 3 back to back ... Read more

Embarkation was a dream, the huge crowd had diminished by the time we arrived and check in was smooth quick and easy, we didn't even need to line up. We boarded and would highly recommend booking your speciality restaurants first ... Read more
