Fabulous Greek Isles Cruise on the Celebrity Solstice
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The food was wonderful and the MDR menus exciting. I have a severe allergy to all seafood, and once our maitre d' in the MDR was informed, he and More the food service staff took very good care of me, letting me choose from the next evening's menu ahead of time and letting me know if any item had any hidden seafood ingredients (i.e. a soup I ordered the night before was actually made with fish stock - I was told at dinner the next evening and given the opportunity to choose another item BEFORE it came to the table). The selection in the Oceanview Cafe was varied and well-prepared, ranging from made-to-order omelets to specialties such as blood sausage, jerk chicken and a curried food station. We were so pleased with the quality of the food in the MDR and Cafe that we didn't feel the need to dine in any of the specialty restaurants.
The evening entertainment in the main theater wasn't really what we preferred, but we did like the cirque-type show called "Solstice." The theme parties were fun, and we thoroughly enjoyed the string trio and ship orchestra (we're classical musicians). There was PLENTY to do on the ship in the evening and on sea days, including the Corning glass-blowing show, various classes and the optional "behind the scenes" ship tours.
There was plenty of time to visit the ports of call and still enjoy some time on the ship before setting sail each evening.
I'm sure there may have been something I missed in this cruise review. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have about our itinerary, the ship or the Solstice Greek Isles cruise! Less
Cabin review: 083147 Ocean View
Located 3rd level, mid-ship, ocean view cabin. VERY QUIET. Did not even hear noise from theme parties in Grand Foyer. Close to gangway on port days (walk down one level to 2), Shore Excursion desk and Guest Services. On same floor as Grand Epernay MDR. Not many cabins on this level and had easy access to less busy elevators. Will definitely book again.Read All Ocean View (08) Reviews >>
