I chose this cruise because of the itinerary, this was my first visit to Australia. Overall, the cruise was very good but I was a little disappointed in a number of areas. The cabin was a little shabby, the door of the sliding ... Read more

Whilst the itinerary had the right balance of sea days to port days, Celebrity failed to help me truly enjoy the sea days. Immediately upon boarding, we were attacked by a photographer pushing photo packages, then by a cocktail waiter ... Read more

We were back to back from Honolulu, so to stay on the ship meant a shorter flight home for us. We had the same cabin so change over day was easy for us. The staff did their best to make life easy for everyone on back to back by organising ... Read more

This was my third cruise with Celebrity, 2nd on Solstice. Each one has been a bit worse than the previous one. Celebrity seem to have cut back on everything. The quality and choices of food in the main restaurant has gone down ... Read more

We like to sail Celebrity and we like the Captains Club benefits. We decided on this cruise because we hadn't been to Australia. The thing we noticed is that Celebrity has changed in what we believe to be a negative way. Here are some ... Read more

Been on several other cruises. Was not happy with being asked continually to pay extra for drink packages, extra dining also so much encouragement to shop as an activity. Photos pushed at you every where. Bingo was $38US for 3 games. We ... Read more

Having sailed on Celebrity’s Eclipse last year on the Baltic I was expecting the same high standard on her sister ship Solstice, well nothing could be further from the truth. The overall vibe of the ship was a bit hit and miss, ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of the destinations. Found embarkation could have been handled better ie. long time queuing. Hard sales for drinks packages which were extortionate compared to other cruise lines, speciality restaurants and always ... Read more

Honolulu to Sydney - While we do not usually give extra tips money on this cruise our service was so good we gave extra to a number of the staff. We did not expect the greatest entertainment as this was a transpacific voyage but what was ... Read more

We had some niggles/problems during the first few days of our cruise: butler was rather absent, especially when time to help us unpack, non-existent staff on deck 16 when sunbathing and wanting a drink, or even a mat for the wicker sun ... Read more

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 70th birthdays and the fact that we could spend a month with our daughter in Melbourne after docking in Sydney. Food is OK, only two new choices each day for starters and mains and desserts. Many ... Read more
