Top End Cruise was amazing
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Perth (Fremantle)
What an amazing cruise! The Solstice is a beautifully appointed ship with great attention to guest satifaction, you only have to ask and you have it.We splurged a little and stayed in an Aqua class stateroom which enabled us to use Blu Restaurant for breakfast and dinner.The service and food were outstanding with charming staff who couldn't do enough to ensure you were satisfied.We also tried the three specialty restaurants and found each to be well worth the small extra cost.We liked Silk Harvest the most and the Asian menu was outstanding,the best I have ever tasted.The ship was spotlessly clean,may be a little strange to comment on the ladies toilets but I have never experienced them to be so immaculate with friendly,happy attendants to turn on the tap and hand you a towel and wish you a happy time.
There was always plenty to do,the Hot Glass Show on deck 15 was wonderful to watch, only wish they had auctioned more pieces that they made on board.We like our sea days on More board and as the weather was very hot we used the pool deck a lot.Standing room only in the two pools but as you really only needed to cool off this was ok.We enjoyed the cooking demonstrations from Executive Chef Geoff and we bought the Excite your Senses book and got the Blu Team to sign.The entertainment was as entertainment is on board,you like it or you don't,great Solstice dancers and acrobats on the last nights show and a fabulous Brunch in the Grand Epernay Restaurant was a sight to behold if you are a foodie with ice sculptures and tables laden with everything you could imagine to eat.To put all this in a nutshell, the best cruise yet.If you like to eat and what cruiser doesn't,don't miss this one.
