Boarding was a breeze. Relaxing with a cocktail overlooking Ft. Lauderdale is very pleasant. We love the Solstice class of Celebrity ships. They are so clean and elegant.The average age on this cruise was 60-65.
The stateroom was well appointed with plenty of storage, as well as a nice size balcony.Overall the food was very good. We had previously dined at the Murano on a previous cruise. It was the best meal we have ever had. This time was no exception. The service is superb, and the chateaubriand that we had was outstanding. Our deserts were the best ever and the cheese selection was to die for.At $45, a bit pricey but worth the experience. The main dining room is beautiful and the food very good. The deserts were subpar, but I can live with that. My only complaint is chefs who prepare grits, pasta, or potatoes without cooking in salt water. The grits were nasty. My only other complaint would be the soups. They all seemed to be prepared in a blender.I want hearty soups.
The promenade is on 2 decks, and watch stores are in abundance. The entertainment was superb. The health club was well appointed, but there was no steam or sauna in the club.At no time do guests feel crowded on this ship.
The ship is void of children (our choice) which adds to the elegance. We certainly will be cruising with Celebrity again.
