We booked this cruise last minute as we had to use future cruise certificate that we had. This was our 7th cruise with Celebrity and probably our last. We were aware that the formal nights had been replaced with "evening chic" ... 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

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

We have wanted to visit New Zealand again and enjoyed the cruise experience. We were also pleased that Tasmania was on the agenda! We had 3 days in Auckland before joining the ship and found this just enough to settle into the time zone. ... Read more

We chose this Auckland to Sydney cruise as a once in a lifetime trip. Overall the cruise did not disappoint. We were upgraded to Concierge Class and the stateroom was a good size and well equipped. We used 'Select Dining' which was great ... 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

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
