We chose this back to back cruise because we had never been to Australia or New Zealand before and it was my husband's retirement year so we now had the opportunity. We firstly travelled to Dubai where we spent two nights and then ... Read more

We had already had a nice long cruise earlier in the year but this one was too cheap to pass over. We had also cruised on Solstice in late 2015 after usually cruising Princess and found it refreshing to sail on a modern spacious ship with ... Read more

Having cruised previously with several other cruise companies, we chose Celebrity solely because of the itinerary. Living in England, a chance to see some of Australia and New Zealand with days in Singapore before and Sydney afterwards ... Read more

We did back-to-back cruises: Singapore to Sydney (with stops in Bali and all around Australia) and then Sydney to New Zealand, ending in Sydney again. Solstice had just come out of dry dock rennovations. These were our 5th and 6th cruises. ... Read more

We have cruised on the Solstice in 2014 and were looking forward to the same experience, unfortunately the Solstice did not live up to our expectation. The embarkation in Singapore was abysmal. We got on board just in time for muster ... 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

We were told to have our main luggage ready in our Singapore hotel room at 9 o'clock on the morning of departure so that we would get on the boat early. We were told to vacate the hotel at 11:30am and board the coach. At 11:20 we ... Read more

The trip didn't begin well due to the embarkation chaos at Singapore. People were told to come at staggered times but most ignored this and the port were not able to deal with things. It took us 2 hours but others took longer. Once on ... 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

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
