After researching cruise lines my husband and I chose to go with Celebrity as it sounded perfect for a couple in mid forties to enjoy good food and service without a heap of kids running riot around the place. And the free drinks package ... Read more

We chose the Solstice because of the itinerary. There were 3 couples going together. Two of us booked cabins with balconies. The cabins are clean but small. The cabin service was fine. But the other service providers seemed somewhat ... Read more

First of all this was our 8th cruise with 3 cruise lines and we had anticipated it would be the best experience so far. Before we left we had a few alarm bells ringing in regard to noise in the cabin after we read a cruise critic review ... Read more

Looked for a last minute Xmas/New Year break and Celebrity fitted the bill. Food and dining service was excellent and cabin was good but somewhat cramped. Was let down by lack of onboard activities that didn't revolve around selling ... Read more

I enjoyed all aspects of my cruise. The food in grand dining room was great. The buffet had huge range, but very hard to keep food hot. Loved the variety. Their home made ice cream was a treat. Sushi on five was a real delight and ... Read more

I have been drawn to the Down Under area since I was a child. I devoured books and movies about the area, and dreamt of this mystical land. When I found this cruise over two years ago while perusing the 'Net one night, I was ecstatic! I ... Read more

We've completed 8 cruises. This last cruise on the Solstice was a repeat of our 2013 cruise. We loved the cruise then, and it was just as great this time! The closest we could get to a complaint is the temperatures around the ship are ... Read more

This was the itinerary we wanted and we had recommendations about Celebrity from family. As this was our first ocean cruise we were - frankly - skeptical. We've traveled the globe extensively but not by sea. Slowly we were won over. The ... Read more

In a nutshell, this cruise was near perfect in every respect EXCEPT for shore excursions. Celebrity needs to take a good hard look at how it trains and staffs it shore excursions team, and how it executes tender days. We chose this as ... Read more
