The speakers were outstanding. The waiters and room attendants were excellent, as usual. The ship's cabins are starting to show a bit of aging. I understand that the Solstice is going into dry dock for some updates soon, so maybe that ... Read more

Apologies for the length but hopefully you will think it a worthwhile read. This was our fifteenth cruise and having sailed previously with Princess, P&O, Royal Carribean and Celebrity we became firm fans of Celebrity. Sadly in view of ... Read more

Went on this cruise as I travelled on the same boat when on the New Zealand Christmas cruise. The boat is well maintained, has good staff, however has a somewhat impersonal feeling and the food in the ocean view buffet is definitely sub ... Read more

We just returned from a cruise on the Celebrity Solstice. We thought the ship was amazing. It was clean, the rooms were very comfortable and there was ample room in the bathroom, and we loved having a balcony to see all the amazing ... Read more

I have cruised on two other cruise lines and decided to try Celebrity this time. Some parts of the experience were impressive and others very disappointing. The embarkation process was smooth, but lengthy. We were not informed of a ... Read more

We chose this destination because my niece had never been up to Alaska. I've enjoyed it for many years. I've cruised on many lines & previously on the Constellation (out of Dover, UK), Infinity and Millenium in recent years. ... Read more

We just returned from our Alaskan cruise on the Celebrity Solstice, and I wish I was still onboard! From the very beginning to the very end, our cruise was fabulous. We had sailed on Carnival out of New Orleans before where we found the ... Read more

Most of the reviews we read said this was a luxury cruise liner, we found that the central atrium went from bottom to top and that on deck 3 they would have a band and singer, this noise travelled up every level and into every public space ... Read more

My wife and I have completed over fifteen cruises and this was out first time on Celebrity. We choose Aqua Class primarily for the Blu restaurant and were not disappointed. We drove up from Oregon so we did not stay in Seattle pre or post ... Read more

We wanted to return to Alaska 32 years after our previous cruise. Ship was acceptable, a little worse for wear. Dining was disappointing, especially the specialty restaurants. Bars were adequate, and Martini Bar was a great show. We ... Read more

To preface, we were on the 8/19 Seven Night Alaska Cruise. I was with my family (parents are in 50s, 2 children in 20s). This was our second cruise ever, the first being a six night Caribbean cruise with NCL. We were in an Aqua Class cabin ... Read more

Although we've cruised many times with Celebrity, this was our first voyage on the Solstace. It is a beautiful ship and very well maintained. We sailed round trip from Seattle. The crew was very good but no one stood out as exceptional. ... Read more

In all honesty, the BEST thing by far about the cruise was their guest speaker, Brett Nixon. He is a career researcher who was on the Solstice as a collaboration to share his knowledge and research of Alaska & its wildlife through ... Read more

The ship is beautiful! The cabins are very nice, the shower, bed and the guys taking care of our room! The transfers from the airport and back to the airport were horrible! I really thought I was going to have to drive the bus back to ... Read more

As with all my reviews, this is my opinion, no need for sarcasm or flaming. We've cruised enough times and feel we have a pretty good insight as to what the industry used to be like and how it has changed. Arrival, approximately 11am, ... Read more

My wife & I had our first experience on the Millennium when it stayed at the dock in AK. The defenseless dock check-in worker put four handicapped people right on the ship even though over 2800 crazy screamers were waiting on the dock. ... Read more
