I cruised to Alaska on a similar route 10 years or so ago on Infinity, loved it and was very excited to return this time with my husband who had never been. We chose to sail on Solstice as we love this class of ship and had never been to ... Read more

The ship is beautiful! The cabins are very nice, the shower, bed and the guys taking care of our room! The transfers from the airport and back to the airport were horrible! I really thought I was going to have to drive the bus back to ... Read more

As with all my reviews, this is my opinion, no need for sarcasm or flaming. We've cruised enough times and feel we have a pretty good insight as to what the industry used to be like and how it has changed. Arrival, approximately 11am, ... Read more

My husband and I are regular cruisers. We love the convenience of unpacking only once and visiting different ports of call. This trip was special because of Solstice’s Master, Captain Tasos Kafetzis. He was a hoot! I don’t ... Read more

An Alaskan cruise was on our bucket list, and as we get older and a bit less mobile, we decided to go for it. We chose Seattle for a round-trip experience because it was easier. No regrets, but a couple of cautions. The airport is a ... Read more

We are first time cruisers. And, we had a most wonderful trip to Alaska. We had thought about this for years. Finally, at the last minute we started planning. I spent a lot of time on Cruise Critics boards, and emails they sent (packing ... Read more

We are Platinum level Princess cruisers, but we did not decide to make our third trip to Alaska until late in the spring and Princess was sold out so we decided to try Celebrity. We were quite pleased with the Celebrity Concierge level ... Read more

This was our third cruise and I rate the Solstice's crew and staff easily the best of the three: better than Crystal Serenity's and RC's Oasis of the Seas. Didn't try Solstices speciality restaurants, but overall food was nearly as good as ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. We were Aqua class so boarding time was 1030, and we were on the ship by 11 and pretty much had the entire buffet to ourselves. From the time we boarded until we left, the service by the crew was prompt and ... Read more

The Celebrity Solstice is stunning, and has a wide variety of activities. We decided to do spa treatments, and also purchase passes for the Persian Garden which we used every day. There is not much like laying on heated tile benches ... Read more

I have always wanted to see Alaska. I had been on one cruise before (San Diego-Ensenada) with Carnival years ago and said, "never again". Well, I can honestly say, "Never again" for sure this time. I guess I am not a ... Read more

We embarked at pier 91. Our car arrived at the port at 11:00 am but there was a long line of towncars so we were not able to get to the pier until 11:25. (Cabs get to bypass this line, so you may want to try that instead of a towncar.) ... Read more

This was our 7th cruise on the Solstice and 39th with Celebrity. We were joined by one of our daughters and her family of 5. The children were 12,11 and 9. So we had a very different experience than almost all of our 68 other cruises. This ... Read more

As previous DCL cruisers we researched a lot before booking our Alaskan cruise. Although we love Disney- the price of a basic balcony stateroom was almost the same price as a sky suite on Celebrity with many more perks. After speaking ... Read more

We chose this cruise because friends were also going. EMBARKATION went very smooth. We waited until later in the afternoon to board and the line was short and fast. DISEMBARKATION was fast. It was my husband, myself and our 8 year old. ... Read more
