We arrived in Vancouver the night before our cruise departure. This gave us the opportunity to explore Vancouver the next day before departing on our Alaskan Cruise. My wife and I really enjoyed Granville Island. We did a 25 minute ... Read more

This was our cruise of a lifetime. We decided to spend the extra $$$ and go for the deluxe balcony. I was extremely disappointed. We were on the 7th floor and instead of overlooking the water there was a blue deck under the balcony. It was ... Read more

The cruise started in Honolulu, with an overnight in Maui, onto Kona and Hilo. Then five days crossing the Pacific with disembarkation in Vancouver. All was wonderful - balcony on the ninth level, very good meals and excellent weather. ... Read more

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 usually cruise with RC but this time www decided to try Celebrity. We were impressed with the poshness of the ship, but after spending a while on her you could see she was tired and in need of a freshen up. When first on the ship it can ... Read more

We had a fabulous time on this cruise. We are a couple late 40's & early 50's. This was our 4th cruise, first on Celebrity. Embarkation was a breeze. We had received an email telling us to arrive between 1 and 5pm, but with ... Read more

Nothing good to say about the ship, food, entertainment, service or staff ! Would give a negative rating if I could. Had to literally wipe out my drawer to put my clothes in on day one, full of dirt and hair. Service was poor, food was ... Read more

Mainly to see the islands on the the way to Hawaii. Ports of call were uninteresting and third world islands - nothing there. Also schedule was wrong as most ports visited were on public holidays, shops bars and restaurant were ... Read more

We chose the Solstice as we went on the Celebrity Millennium eight years ago which was an amazing experience. On Embarkment it was lengthy waiting time which in fairness couldn't be any better as there are so many people boarding so ... 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

This cruise was selected as we had done the identical cruise, same time, same ship, last year (2015). On the basis of that particular cruise we were (and are) in a position to make an unbiased comparison to both cruises. Itinerary was the ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary. It included 5 ports of call we had never visited (2 in New Zealand, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora), and ended in our favorite travel destination, Hawaii. The length was about what we wanted and of ... Read more

We chose this ship because we sailed on it the year earlier from Perth to Sydney and loved the ship. This time we were taking friends, one of whom is suffering a terminal illness. They had never cruised before and were unsure about it. It ... Read more

We had cruised around Australia and New Zealand a few years ago and while we wanted to go back, we dreaded all the flying. Our answer was to fly over and cruise back. After looking at all the options we decided to do 3 back to back ... Read more
