Australia and New Zealand are lovely places to visit. The weather can be unpredictable but the ports of call and the people make up for that. The Solstice is an excellent ship, the cabins, public areas, gym, dining venues etc. are ... Read more

We are nearly 70, and cruise a few times a year. We flew to Sydney, and stayed at the York. Very good value, not fancy, and close to the terminal. Ate at La Cantina which is a great little place. We embarked on a foggy, rainy day. We ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Solstice, traveling in room 9294 (Category Deluxe Verenda 1A) which had the larger balcony, but it does look towards the back of the ship. As a family, we are limited as to what rooms we can get as we need a ... Read more

Embarkment Boarded 3 hrs before sailing no waiting in line. As we sailed on the solstice before we knew our way around. There was a good mix of cruises onboard very young to over 60s. As we are in our late 60s this was not a problem for ... Read more

This was our second cruise and was highly recommended to spend New Years Eve on the Solstice. The public areas and our state room (Concierge Class) was very clean and tidy. The room attendants were very friendly and couldn't do enough ... Read more

We had an OMG moment when we got our cell phone bill. For much of the cruise I had the phone turned on so that I could use the wifi function for which we paid the ship wifi charges that were outrageously expensive. On top of that little ... Read more

We booked this cruise on Dec 25, 2014, so had a whole year to anticipate it, which ended this morning. It was worth the wait!! I would get back on the Solstice and do this same itinerary again today! We have been on 30+ cruises and this ... Read more

We have cruised more than 25 times on all the cruise lines. This cruise without a doubt was the worse cruise of all. The food was terrible and for the any time dinners you could not get a proper time to eat. They chose the time not you. ... Read more
