If you like an overcrowded ship (2850 max capacity with over 3000 passengers on board), hospital quality food, average entertainment and unexciting on board activities on an older ship, this is your cruise. The new menu in the Tuscan ... Read more

While this comment is not about Celebrity, it explains why I booked this cruise! RCI offer a 2 4 1 cruise deal, Despite my wife's protestations, I signed up. We were promised a great range of cruises and would get 2 for the price of one. ... Read more

I enjoyed all aspects of my cruise. The food in grand dining room was great. The buffet had huge range, but very hard to keep food hot. Loved the variety. Their home made ice cream was a treat. Sushi on five was a real delight and ... Read more

This is the first time my wife & I sail with Celebrity as we have heard from our friends that Celebrity service is great & food is better than the other major cruise liners. So we said give it a try to see New Zealand & a bit ... Read more

I have been drawn to the Down Under area since I was a child. I devoured books and movies about the area, and dreamt of this mystical land. When I found this cruise over two years ago while perusing the 'Net one night, I was ecstatic! I ... Read more

With one previous cruise on Sun Princess in 2008 we are not expert cruisers. Maybe we expected too much. The serve yourself buffet was a real bun fight, dodging people and collecting food then trying to find somewhere to sit and eat was at ... Read more

The embarkation was fairly speedy and we got on to the ship fairly quickly we were not happy after having being been awake for over 36 hours to be pounced on the moment we set foot on the ship by staff trying to sell drinks packages, spa ... Read more

We've completed 8 cruises. This last cruise on the Solstice was a repeat of our 2013 cruise. We loved the cruise then, and it was just as great this time! The closest we could get to a complaint is the temperatures around the ship are ... Read more

This was the itinerary we wanted and we had recommendations about Celebrity from family. As this was our first ocean cruise we were - frankly - skeptical. We've traveled the globe extensively but not by sea. Slowly we were won over. The ... Read more

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

First of all, hire a completely new set of customer service members for the Singapore cruise port. The male staff who ushered us was extremely rude. When we went into the port terminal, we didn't know where to go as there was another ... 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

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
