Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary so chose a longer cruise in a different part of the world than we usually cruise. The flight over meant that we had gone without sleep for over 40 hours before boarding ship. Should have stayed in Barcelona overnight.

The ship was lovely, the wait staff attentive, the drinks prices reasonable, our table mates delightful, and the food excellent. We were in a Suite and Captain Club Select so enjoyed many perks.

There was a problem embarking. At the Duty Free Shop we bought two bottles of wine for our room. Two men at ship said we could not take them to our room. The brochure clearly states that we may. They finally let us go but we resented the hassle.

We ate in MDR except for one night in Silk and one in Tuscany. They were both very good, but I am glad we didn't have to pay extra for them. We did have two lunches at the outside grill. Yummy hot dogs, burgers with grilled onions, and the best french fries ever. The Cafe upstairs may have good food but it is a zoo and very confusing.

We attended several shows that were good. Our one complaint was the loudness. Perhaps it was our center front seats, but I heard complaints from others in other areas.

We went to one of the Captain parties but skipped the second. Again, the music was so loud we could not visit with fellow passengers. Many left early for that reason.

The last day we never received a Comment Card. Disembarking went very smoothly.

It is not Celebrity's fault that our flight home out of JFK was cancelled after 3 hrs on runway and we spent the night with skimpy airline blanket and pillow. It just made us hesitant of crossing the sea gain.
