For decades, celebrity has been my favorite cruise line. I have recommended celebrity to hundreds of people. After spending time on the Solstice, I honestly cannot recommend this cruise line anymore. The ship itself was great. While ... Read more

We had to toss up between a Good or Very Good rating - why - mainly because of the Main Dining Room experience of an evening. The service was good however the food was far from acceptable, especially after sailing on RCL's Legend of the ... Read more
