Great

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Auckland

Three days in Auckland pre-cruise was great. Beautiful, friendly city.

The boarding process was hectic and unlike Celebrity boardings in USA. Basically just terribly disorganized.

The Ship was beautiful and clean. The food was wonderful. Some of the best we've had on our 35 cruises.

The basic staff was terrific. The entertainment staff was not up to Celebrity standards. Seemed bored with the passengers. No problem, we made our own fun.

Captain Taramas and his Senior staff was outstanding - friendly, helpful, always around the ship. They were often in the public areas eating, having coffee, basically making themselves available to the passengers for questions or just a friendly chat.

We've been on Celebrity cruises numerous times and always enjoyed the ships. But, for some reason, we didn't like the layout of the Solstice. It wasn't as convenient as other Celebrity ships we've sailed. Of course, that is only a personal opinion. Less

Cabin review: Celebrity Solstice 9372

Even though an inside room, it was very comfortable and roomy. Two comfortable arm chairs rather than a small sofa made for good visiting. The bed was very comfortable and felt like a full king. More storage than needed. Only problem, it was the last aft inside cabin. Made for LONG walks just to get anywhere. Healthy, but tiring.
