Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
After many cruises to many destinations, I was very impressed with the Solstice. After a long embarkation process due to an outbreak of the Roto virus on the previous cruise, the rest of the cruise was extremely enjoyable. For me one of the high points was a casino where you could try your luck without the cloud of smoke that typically surrounds most other ship casinos. It made for an enjoyable time with the opportunity to win! (albeit I did not win a lot, but was able to enjoy the experience without the smoke)

The cabins, were ample and the baths were exquisite. The food service was good. Due to the previous cruise virus out-break, the buffets were served by the service personnel, which in all honesty is a good feature. No over-serving and only on set of gloved hands on the food. The dining room service was excellent, and the water glass was always filled, as well as the iced-tea, bread, butter, etc. Special requests on the meals were honored without hesitation and filled accurately. One of the things that impressed me most, was the Captain of the vessel made it a point to walk the ship and stop to converse with passengers. Even on the final night of the cruise he made rounds of the dining room and stopped at all the tables.

The decor was breath taking, more like a hotel than a cruise ship. There is glass throughout, and goes hand in hand with the glass-blowing performers on the top deck. The theme restaurants although trying to excel, I believe they need a bit more work in the cuisine.

If there was a negative, I believe it was the entertainment. Although an effort was made to excel, I found the dancing a bit on the amateur side. Although the guest performers was great, as well as the acrobats. I would like to see the choreography stepped up a notch, and the on-board singers chose music more familiar.

I recommend this ship to all as it was pure luxury, and we well pampered.
