We decided to sail to Alaska about a month before we departed. We live in the departure port of Seattle and have been on Alaska Cruises several times before as it's an easy vacation for us. We chose the Celebrity Solstice as some ... Read more

We are first time cruisers. And, we had a most wonderful trip to Alaska. We had thought about this for years. Finally, at the last minute we started planning. I spent a lot of time on Cruise Critics boards, and emails they sent (packing ... Read more

We are Platinum level Princess cruisers, but we did not decide to make our third trip to Alaska until late in the spring and Princess was sold out so we decided to try Celebrity. We were quite pleased with the Celebrity Concierge level ... Read more

This was our third cruise and I rate the Solstice's crew and staff easily the best of the three: better than Crystal Serenity's and RC's Oasis of the Seas. Didn't try Solstices speciality restaurants, but overall food was nearly as good as ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. We were Aqua class so boarding time was 1030, and we were on the ship by 11 and pretty much had the entire buffet to ourselves. From the time we boarded until we left, the service by the crew was prompt and ... Read more

The Celebrity Solstice is stunning, and has a wide variety of activities. We decided to do spa treatments, and also purchase passes for the Persian Garden which we used every day. There is not much like laying on heated tile benches ... Read more

I have always wanted to see Alaska. I had been on one cruise before (San Diego-Ensenada) with Carnival years ago and said, "never again". Well, I can honestly say, "Never again" for sure this time. I guess I am not a ... Read more

We embarked at pier 91. Our car arrived at the port at 11:00 am but there was a long line of towncars so we were not able to get to the pier until 11:25. (Cabs get to bypass this line, so you may want to try that instead of a towncar.) ... Read more

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

WE have been on over 35 cruises and we must say this ship and crew were the best we have ever experienced. The crew were all friendly and seemed to all enjoy their jobs. The guests relations manager, Mr Guy Brundrett is an exception ... 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

The night before we sailed we reserved an 8:15PM dinner reservation at the Space Needle. Dinner was excellent...but very expensive. The timing was perfect because we saw Seattle during daylight, sunset and nighttime all while enjoying our ... Read more
