Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
Post Costa Cruising
I would say that overall this cruise on Celebrity Solstice was good. It was not great but there was very little that was outright bad. Maybe I should start at the beginning. We booked our trip before the first of the year and paid what we considered a fair price about $100 a nite. For that price point we had high expectations. After the Costa Concordia trouble prices were falling like crazy. The message board had many posters telling of great finds on price. That is all fine, many different prices are paid for seats on planes, rooms in hotels, etc... but the guy paying full fair still expects great service.

The boarding procedure was OK the building was barn like and warm but we got through fairly quick.

We liked the layout of the cabin and the bath was very good. Unfortunately we were right below the buffet and it got noisy late at night and early morning as service changes.

We were happy with the service. Waiters and cabin attendants were awesome. Food in MDR was tolerable. We ate at Tuscan Grill and it was very bad. We could not get satisfaction from the Management or the concierge. That was to bad. During the 2nd week a 2 for 1 deals were announced due to lack of business.

We loved the enrichment speakers, they were great. The main show Crice Du sole was creepy with animal like costumes and acrobats suspended on ropes over the seats(odd). The entertainment director went by a single name Esmeralda, or something, was off putting. She was always on the TV doing disingenuous interviews, gets old early.

The whole experience was OK I was hoping for so much more...
