An anniversary cruise to remember: Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by barcafan
Overall Member Rating
An anniversary cruise to remember
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The few negatives:
The coffee was atrocious, unless you want to pay $5 a cup for it. Amazing that an otherwise outstanding product could get something as easy as coffee so wrong! If not for the coffee, I would have rated the dining 5+. The entertainment was mediocre- except for the comedian-magician Rawlings, and the acrobats, both very good. The singers couldn't carry a tune in a bucket.
We thoroughly enjoyed all our excursions, which we booked privately. All our guides were prompt, waiting for us when we left the boat in the morning, and returning in plenty of time in the afternoon. In Rome and Naples we used RomeInLimo, which lived up to the superlative reviews of other travelers. Alberto was our driver in Rome, and Carmine in Naples. Mauro was our extraordinary guide for the Vatican Museum. In Kusadasi, we were met by Sedat from Melitours- the agency recommended by Rick Steves. In Santorini, we took a catamaran cruise with Santorini sailing, which was very good. In Athens, Nikos Loukas was a driver-guide for a very good city tour. Guzi took us on a great tour of Malta.
Maybe the most memorable evening was sitting on the lawn listening to 70's music and singing along with our friends. Less

Cabin 8199 had plenty of room and a large balcony with great views. It was quiet and had close access to the forward elevators and stairs.Read All Deluxe Veranda (1A) Reviews >>
