Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
First cruise...won't be the last!

It was a leap of faith to choose this cruise as our first but either through luck or good judgement we really chose well.

The ship was, in our opinion, 5 star in every aspect; comfortable, clean, superb staff, great food and good entertainment.

Despite having almost 3000 passengers we never felt crowded and the solitude of the cabin was always available.

The route was what we had wanted although a couple of the stops were not that exciting (e.g. Port Hedland). There were a number of sea days but it was a top end trip around Australia and it's a big place! In fact the sea days were rather nice. Plenty of activities if you wanted and peace and quiet to be found if you didn't.

Our cabin stewards (Joe from Goa and Lincoln from Jamaica) were great and really deserve a special mention. The cabin was always spotless and they were both discreet and professional.

We could wax lyrical about the food and the choices of menus and restaurants. Only bad experience was at one of the speciality restaurants but we did complain and this was taken seriously.

Good choices that we made were to have a cabin with a balcony, go for select dining instead of sittings and choosing a starboard cabin as the cruise went clockwise around Australia.

No real bad choices although I think that, for us, the shore excursions were a bit overpriced and we preferred to do our own thing when in port.

All in all a great experience, a great ship, great crew and a great Company to cruise with.
