We had some niggles/problems during the first few days of our cruise: butler was rather absent, especially when time to help us unpack, non-existent staff on deck 16 when sunbathing and wanting a drink, or even a mat for the wicker sun ... Read more

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 70th birthdays and the fact that we could spend a month with our daughter in Melbourne after docking in Sydney. Food is OK, only two new choices each day for starters and mains and desserts. Many ... Read more

Staff were really excellent, friendly and helpful - cabin always well maintained. Food average compared with other cruises we'd been on with not a lot of variety in the main dining room. Solstice show band and regular singers and dancers ... Read more

The speakers were outstanding. The waiters and room attendants were excellent, as usual. The ship's cabins are starting to show a bit of aging. I understand that the Solstice is going into dry dock for some updates soon, so maybe that ... Read more

Most of the reviews we read said this was a luxury cruise liner, we found that the central atrium went from bottom to top and that on deck 3 they would have a band and singer, this noise travelled up every level and into every public space ... Read more

We wanted to return to Alaska 32 years after our previous cruise. Ship was acceptable, a little worse for wear. Dining was disappointing, especially the specialty restaurants. Bars were adequate, and Martini Bar was a great show. We ... Read more
