This is the first time my wife & I sail with Celebrity as we have heard from our friends that Celebrity service is great & food is better than the other major cruise liners. So we said give it a try to see New Zealand & a bit ... Read more

I have been drawn to the Down Under area since I was a child. I devoured books and movies about the area, and dreamt of this mystical land. When I found this cruise over two years ago while perusing the 'Net one night, I was ecstatic! I ... Read more

With one previous cruise on Sun Princess in 2008 we are not expert cruisers. Maybe we expected too much. The serve yourself buffet was a real bun fight, dodging people and collecting food then trying to find somewhere to sit and eat was at ... Read more

The embarkation was fairly speedy and we got on to the ship fairly quickly we were not happy after having being been awake for over 36 hours to be pounced on the moment we set foot on the ship by staff trying to sell drinks packages, spa ... Read more

We've completed 8 cruises. This last cruise on the Solstice was a repeat of our 2013 cruise. We loved the cruise then, and it was just as great this time! The closest we could get to a complaint is the temperatures around the ship are ... Read more

This was the itinerary we wanted and we had recommendations about Celebrity from family. As this was our first ocean cruise we were - frankly - skeptical. We've traveled the globe extensively but not by sea. Slowly we were won over. The ... Read more

We cruised last year on celebrity millenium, where we booked this cruise. the solstice class is much better than the millenium class and much bigger. Check in: We checked in online which made it faster and more efficient at the ... Read more

The Solstice is a fine ship. We found the food and all of the staff to be top class. Food - As much as you want with plenty of variety. We had about half of our dinners in the main dining room and couldn't fault it. One night in the ... Read more

In a nutshell, this cruise was near perfect in every respect EXCEPT for shore excursions. Celebrity needs to take a good hard look at how it trains and staffs it shore excursions team, and how it executes tender days. We chose this as ... Read more

First of all, hire a completely new set of customer service members for the Singapore cruise port. The male staff who ushered us was extremely rude. When we went into the port terminal, we didn't know where to go as there was another ... Read more

We chose this back to back cruise because we had never been to Australia or New Zealand before and it was my husband's retirement year so we now had the opportunity. We firstly travelled to Dubai where we spent two nights and then ... Read more

We had already had a nice long cruise earlier in the year but this one was too cheap to pass over. We had also cruised on Solstice in late 2015 after usually cruising Princess and found it refreshing to sail on a modern spacious ship with ... Read more

We did back-to-back cruises: Singapore to Sydney (with stops in Bali and all around Australia) and then Sydney to New Zealand, ending in Sydney again. Solstice had just come out of dry dock rennovations. These were our 5th and 6th cruises. ... Read more

We have cruised on the Solstice in 2014 and were looking forward to the same experience, unfortunately the Solstice did not live up to our expectation. The embarkation in Singapore was abysmal. We got on board just in time for muster ... Read more

We took this unique itinerary with Solstice coming back to Sydney from dry dock in Singapore. Singapore check in was a zoo. The ship was in very good condition. We chose a Celebrity Suite on the hump so we had a huge forward facing ... Read more

This was my fifth Celebrity cruise, the third on Solstice. Embarkation in Singapore was a disaster - huge queues and no one really seemed to know which line was which. I'm not sure if that was a Celebrity thing or if it was because of ... Read more

Chose Solstice because of positive reviews and their General reputation of being a superior cruise line. We stayed at the Hotel Boss in Singapore. This is a new budget hotel with very small rooms but for an overnight stay it was good ... Read more

The itinerary and time of year were our reasons for choosing this cruise. It allowed us to stay in Singapore for a few days and the stay in Sydney at the end of the cruise before going to Hong Kong and back to U.K. The chaos in Singapore ... Read more
