The Solstice is a fine ship. We found the food and all of the staff to be top class. Food - As much as you want with plenty of variety. We had about half of our dinners in the main dining room and couldn't fault it. One night in 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

We took this unique itinerary with Solstice coming back to Sydney from dry dock in Singapore. Singapore check in was a zoo. The ship was in very good condition. We chose a Celebrity Suite on the hump so we had a huge forward facing ... Read more

This was my fifth Celebrity cruise, the third on Solstice. Embarkation in Singapore was a disaster - huge queues and no one really seemed to know which line was which. I'm not sure if that was a Celebrity thing or if it was because of ... Read more

Chose Solstice because of positive reviews and their General reputation of being a superior cruise line. We stayed at the Hotel Boss in Singapore. This is a new budget hotel with very small rooms but for an overnight stay it was good ... Read more

The itinerary and time of year were our reasons for choosing this cruise. It allowed us to stay in Singapore for a few days and the stay in Sydney at the end of the cruise before going to Hong Kong and back to U.K. The chaos in Singapore ... Read more

We just finished the Singapore to Sydney Cruise - post multi dollar investment 'maiden cruise' - very glad to be home. Based on our two previous excellent cruises on the Solstice, it is very apparent that this once great vessel has ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I just wanted a holiday. The idea of one flight, an easy 8 or so hours to Singapore and then cruising home to Sydney via ports I had already seen really appealed. We also got an incredible deal and the new ... Read more

As a couple with some cruising experience, we did find the Solstice something of a mixed bag. Good Aqua class cabin and associated dining, great service from the stateroom attendants and numerous other staff around the ship. However, in ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary, this was my first visit to Australia. Overall, the cruise was very good but I was a little disappointed in a number of areas. The cabin was a little shabby, the door of the sliding ... Read more

Whilst the itinerary had the right balance of sea days to port days, Celebrity failed to help me truly enjoy the sea days. Immediately upon boarding, we were attacked by a photographer pushing photo packages, then by a cocktail waiter ... Read more

We were back to back from Honolulu, so to stay on the ship meant a shorter flight home for us. We had the same cabin so change over day was easy for us. The staff did their best to make life easy for everyone on back to back by organising ... Read more

This was my third cruise with Celebrity, 2nd on Solstice. Each one has been a bit worse than the previous one. Celebrity seem to have cut back on everything. The quality and choices of food in the main restaurant has gone down ... Read more

We like to sail Celebrity and we like the Captains Club benefits. We decided on this cruise because we hadn't been to Australia. The thing we noticed is that Celebrity has changed in what we believe to be a negative way. Here are some ... Read more

Been on several other cruises. Was not happy with being asked continually to pay extra for drink packages, extra dining also so much encouragement to shop as an activity. Photos pushed at you every where. Bingo was $38US for 3 games. We ... Read more

Having sailed on Celebrity’s Eclipse last year on the Baltic I was expecting the same high standard on her sister ship Solstice, well nothing could be further from the truth. The overall vibe of the ship was a bit hit and miss, ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of the destinations. Found embarkation could have been handled better ie. long time queuing. Hard sales for drinks packages which were extortionate compared to other cruise lines, speciality restaurants and always ... Read more

Honolulu to Sydney - While we do not usually give extra tips money on this cruise our service was so good we gave extra to a number of the staff. We did not expect the greatest entertainment as this was a transpacific voyage but what was ... Read more
