Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
An awe inspiring ship
We flew to FLL and stayed at Motel8 near the airport. Not a luxury hotel, mind you, but clean, cheap and they had a shuttle from the airport and to the dock. Also they were within walking distance to a liquor store, which is important to those who know why! Very convenient.

Check in next morning was a breeze. We were in cabin 6248 (obstructed balcony) and found that the obstruction was just a life boat underneath the railing. It only obstructed the view straight down, not the view of the ocean.

The cabin was very nice and well equipped. The only annoyance was the closet which was very poorly designed. Sliding doors which didn't slide very well, and hinges that cut off your fingers if you didn't pay attention.

Other than that, this was the most beautiful ship we've been on. The dEcor is modern, and we never felt crowded.

The food was good, and the wine list extensive - with many wines in the $25 to 35 range. Service was flawless. The breakfast and lunch offerings at the buffet were extensive, but dinner at the buffet was rather limited. We did not use the specialty restaurants because we were unable to secure a reservation at a time suitable to us.

Entertainment was of typical cruise ship quality, and the lectures offered were very interesting.

If there is any room for improvement, it's in the IT area. Internet access is more cumbersome and fragile than on other ships. And since we're talking IT, how about fixing your web site, Celebrity, so I don't have to enter all my personals every time I log on. Also, why do you still mail luggage stickers when most other lines let you print them at home?
