We never thought we could would sail on a ship with such high standards,but when I saw this on the nett ,we jumped at the oppotunity,the first thing that brightend up our face ,on boarding the ship was that it was playing Christmas Carols,now this was two full weeks before Christmas,on doing the same cruise last year over the actual Christmas on the Princess boats, there were no christmas Carols , and not even the words Christmas,somehow .
It was as if all the staff had been sent to charm school, wonderfull wonderfull people,Entertainment was supurb,,as were the beautifull inside cabins , much nicer than any to date,the main dining room, was out of this world,only a few minor things to be criticule about,such as no laundry,and not being allowed to use an iron,with a phermo stat .
having an Australian chef on board, we would have expected him to be able to cook Baramundi , and Australian delight,probably the best fish downunder,sadly this applied to all of the fish,perhaps being broiled was not the best way to cook such fish, other than that, it was as good if not better than the Princess,boats,would be good if they forget to send the couple of Princess boats,to the northern hemiphere. that are down here visiting,Got so near to being in the elete catorgory,but thats now on hold,untill thay improve.
We have now booked on the Celebrity Eclips next June,to Saint Pettersburg,a lttle rich for us,but its our 50th wedding aniversery,and time to live a little.We have been told if we like the Solstice, we will Love the Eclips.regards to all yoyr readers Turbs,all the ports in Newzealand are great, we have cruise the same ports 3 years running on 3 different ships
