After researching cruise lines my husband and I chose to go with Celebrity as it sounded perfect for a couple in mid forties to enjoy good food and service without a heap of kids running riot around the place. And the free drinks package ... Read more

We chose the Solstice because of the itinerary. There were 3 couples going together. Two of us booked cabins with balconies. The cabins are clean but small. The cabin service was fine. But the other service providers seemed somewhat ... Read more

We were led to believe this was an upscale cruise line. The food was so watered down it was like prison food. The speciality dining was over-rated. The coffee was the worse and if you wanted a good cup of coffee you would have to go and ... Read more

First of all this was our 8th cruise with 3 cruise lines and we had anticipated it would be the best experience so far. Before we left we had a few alarm bells ringing in regard to noise in the cabin after we read a cruise critic review ... Read more

We are elite plus and have cruised with Celebrity on numerous times. Based on our last experience , they seem more like a budget line at a premium price. They have definitely lost their vibe and more of a has been. It seems to keep ... 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
