Very good cruise...but much older than expected
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
Optional dining options were good, especially the lawn club grill and Q-sine - however they didn't compare to the onshore style restaurants they were trying to imitate. Tuscan Grill is a run of the mill italian restaurant and Mirano's is a below average french. Q-sine was good, but not fine dining. The lawn club was our favourite...good atmosphere and great steak...and you get to grill your own and become part of the show. Never set foot in main dining hall. Blu, the special restaurant for the aqua class and suites was a good a la carte option with "healthier", lighter options, but service could be sketchy and slow.
Entertainment was bad...same 8 dancers in everything, same three singers do it all and not More very well. The special "Sin City Comedy" was awful, too late in the evening and the tacky burlesque was odd and uncomfortable. The 2 dance shows were entertaining. The two lounge singer acts were not good.
Loved the solarium area of the pool deck - but where is the bar - if you stay in this area, you had to leave to get a drink as waiters were a rarity.
Molecular bar and Martini bar were great with great staff - as the entertainment was lame, we drank to entertain ourselves.
I would do a celebrity solstice class cruise again, but only if we had friends join us...someone to drink with. Less
Great room, huge bathroom, lovely decorations, big deck...the tub on the deck was confusing...not big enough for a jacuzzi??Butler service was very good, but not as visible and handy as I would have liked.Two big screen TV's but the channels are not HD so the picture quality was so-so.Bar fridge was ridiculously loud...thankfully the door separating the bedroom eliminated the noise.
