This was our 7th cruise on the Solstice and 39th with Celebrity. We were joined by one of our daughters and her family of 5. The children were 12,11 and 9. So we had a very different experience than almost all of our 68 other cruises. This ... Read more

As previous DCL cruisers we researched a lot before booking our Alaskan cruise. Although we love Disney- the price of a basic balcony stateroom was almost the same price as a sky suite on Celebrity with many more perks. After speaking ... Read more

We chose this cruise because friends were also going. EMBARKATION went very smooth. We waited until later in the afternoon to board and the line was short and fast. DISEMBARKATION was fast. It was my husband, myself and our 8 year old. ... Read more

Sailed with Celebrity several years ago. It seems the quality of the food has gone down since being under RCL ownership. If you want the same food as years ago, you pay the surcharge to be in a classy restaurant. Otherwise the food is ... Read more

I had gone on 2 cruises a long ago but my husband had not gone on any. We could not go on a cruise prior to our retirement due to the need to always be connected to the internet and regular communication with our office staff. We retired ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise to Alaska as it aligned with our available dates and for the Seattle to Seattle route. Alaska was beautiful. The Solstice was not. This was our first, and likely our last, on Celebrity. The Solstice ... Read more

Captain Taso Kafetzis is the best captain ever – very involved with his guests. He kept us informed and narrated highlights of scenery points, etc. I overheard that he actually drove a tender to/from the port. I saw him at the ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise and my husbands 7th and our 3rd with Celebrity and we weren't disappointed. We had already sailed aboard the Solstice 2 years ago so we basically knew what to expect. We arrived in Seattle a night before the ship ... Read more

We purchased a Deluxe Veranda cabin, with the Classic alcohol package and the specialty dinner package. As a 10x cruiser, we never felt more pressure to purchase upgrades or less welcome that we didn't purchase a suite or higher. First ... Read more

Overrated Inside passage from Seattle. Nice scenery from our balcony but you are never going to get an Alaskan experience without buying pricey shore excursions. Most everything in Katachan, Juneau and Skagway is either owned or controlled ... Read more

We arrive at least a day early to prevent airline delays from affecting departure. Seattle is a great city to explore. This trip, one day was sufficient to revisit the sites. Surprisingly, the city infrastructure is not prepared for ... Read more
