Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
Very Impressive
We were on the sailing of 20th. September 2012.

We are a professional couple who have cruised several times before. We had been staying in Madrid pre cruise and got the AVE Train to Barcelona on the day of the cruise. This was an amazing experience - 300kph with included meal and drinks. Taxi from station to port.

We arrived at the Pier at around 2.30pm. Not many checking in and we had an allocated checkin being Aquaclass. Through in minutes.

Cabin was of course ready and perfectly presented. Very spacious with a good sized balcony.

Had a late lunch at the Aquaspa cafe. We ate every evening and several mornings at Blu save for one night. It is an excellent restaurant and relatively small. Service was exceptional. The wait staff including Adi, Luciano, John, Caesar, Yasim and others gave the highest degree of friendly service along with the sommeliers Leonardo and Margie. The food was very good just a bit lighter than usual which made it even better. We ate one night at Murano. You need to eat there but only once as the menu does not change. Again exceptional food and service. Lunch when onboard we ate at the Aqua Cafe. Ate one lunch in Bistro on Five. Not crowded and good food and service.

We did not go to any entertainment but heard the shows were good. We enjoyed the three piece orchestra at the lounges/bars before dinner. Never crowded.

We did not use any boat tours but had only private tours. In summary you would never know there were 3,000 passengers. There were plenty of empty spaces around the boat. Staff at every point gave excellent service.

Disembarkation was a breeze. Put out our bags late the night before, had booked 7.30am departure. Walked straight off at that time. bags were arriving on carousel when we got there.

We have cruised a number of times with different cruiselines and on smaller boats including Penthouse Class on Oceana. Overall we would rate this as our best cruise.
