Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
Celebrity Rocks! What a beautiful ship and a wonderful trip
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first Celebrity experience and will definately be back for more. The staff were very good and our room was extremely comfortable and spacious in cruise cabin terms. We were particularly impressed with the balcony size and the bathroom layout and the very comfortable bed and lounge.

If you have trouble finding something you like to eat on Solstice then you are just far too picky. There is every type of food imaginable and lots of it. Whilst some of it is too sweet (juices in particular) and salty for our liking, generally the quality was very high.

We did not meet anyone who suffered from gastro on our cruise although I note there is a review on this site from the cabin next to us stating they were both sick. Sorry to hear that but it's news to us.

Shopping is good, if you need retail therapy. Pools are lovely and there was never a problem finding a place to sit and relax.

Whilst there were a lot of people on board, we never really felt crowded and didn't miss out on anything because of crowds. We always found a seat in the entertainment areas, restaurants, lounges etc without any trouble.

Most shore excursions were very expensive and would recommend organising your own directly or with operators once you get off the ship. There was also a hiccup getting on. We had paid for priority boarding but it didn't work out that way as too many people turned up at the same time. Once inside the customs hall, however, we did get on quickly.

Loved, loved, loved our Celebrity Solstice experience.
