Just returned from my 1st cruise on Celebrity Solstice (cruised previously on P&O and RC) and overall I would say I loved it. Our cruise departed Sydney on 1st March for South Pacific and Fiji. My husband and I, a Childfree by ... Read more

We did a very similar cruise with slightly different itinerary 2 years ago, and as we loved the experience and the price fitted our budget, we decided to repeat this cruise and choose different activities on ship and in port to make it a ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise 15 months ago, primarily because it was a 12 day cruise, the longest Pacific cruise we had seen on Celebrity this cruising season. It was only fabulous, from embarkation onwards. As I have trouble ... Read more

You can only ever really judge a product or a company when things go wrong, it’s easy to make claims and promises before an event but the truth will always come to light if a problem arises. The staff and crew of Celebrity Solstice ... Read more

Despite now being 10 years old, the Celebrity Solstice has retained much of its original opulence and glamour since our first cruise approx 5 years ago. The facilities are of a high standard and have been well-maintained. Whilst the ... Read more

I traveled with my wife in a balcony cabin on the 6th level. The overall experience exceeded our expectations as first-time cruisers. Embarkation in Sydney could not have been smoother. About 35 minutes from arriving in a taxi to on the ... Read more

We've cruised Windstar, Princess and Oceania on multiple cruises. This was our first time on Celebrity. Comments in order of best to worst. The food on Celebrity Solstice far surpassed every other cruise and cruise line - except the ... Read more

This was a special holiday to New Zealand and the cruise was only part of the trip. This was our fourth cruise with Celebrity in a solstice class ship. We were persuaded to "upgrade" for Aqua class. Whilst the overall ... Read more

We chose Celebrity Solstice as we wanted to cruise around New Zealand and the itinerary offered the right destinations for us. We would not normally choose such a large ship as we feel 1,200-1,600 passengers maximum is manageable. We ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Celebrity, we have cruised about 10 times in all with Royal Caribbean, P&O and latterly Azamara for two special birthdays. The problem is that the Azamara experience is so superior (and expensive) you do ... Read more

Chose this cruise for a couple of reasons. We wanted a trip to Fiji, Australia and New Zealand. We had sailed on Celebrity once before and really liked it. So when this cruise came on the radar we jumped on it. We got a great deal ... Read more

This was our third cruise with Celebrity and we were eagerly looking forward to our trip 'down under' visiting Australia and New Zealand from the UK. Given the distance - we made plans to stay in Sydney for 4 days before we got on the ... Read more

There was never a cruise we did not like but after 20 Celebrity cruises, 3 Viking, 2 Royal Caribbean we are eager to try something new. Our cruise was wonderful but it does get repetitive. Since they started to focus on exclusive dining ... Read more

The weather was abysmal - and that is totally out of control of anyone. So, that is not a factor in my review. Our Aqua Class cabin was 1510 - located directly underneath the treadmills in the fitness center. This meant that every day ... Read more
