We loved Solstice in the Med!
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Aboard Ship: It is hard to criticize Celebrity, they do a wonderful job but the world is not perfect. We hate to be nickeled and dimed for drinks but we are not wine snobs. We found the 2nd tier beverage package to be perfect. Top shelf liqours and adequate selections of wines. Just check your account often to make sure there are no mischarges. The Casino bar tended to charge us for more expensive wines and for water all of which should have been in our package, customer relations quickly credited our account but we had to ask. The dining experience was not optimal. We wondered if they have stepped down in the dining room to encourage guests to pay extra in the extra charge restaurants. We found the beef meals to be somewhat tough and the offerings a bit limited compared to other cruise ship experiences. Lobster was only offered on one night and was rather small. The service however was exceptional. Our cabin and veranda were wonderful. Plenty of room if you utilize the over bed cabinets and put your bags and shoes under the bed. We did all of the bars and Michael's Club on deck 5 was our favorite, the Martini Bar was a close 2nd. The Molecular wasn't worth a return trip. Breakfast in the dining room was excellent, most people went to the Ocean Cafe buffet and didn't know what they missed. Lunch at the Mast Bar restaurant for burgers and fries was also good but tended to crowd up quickly. The outdoor bars ie Sunset were vey good. We only went to 2 shows and they were acceptible, we missed the Comic and were told that was the best show all week. We enjoyed the bands and singers at the pool and on Deck 3 each evening and the glass blowing show was worth an hour but not more. All in all, we had a great time. Perhaps I'm nit picking but I'm trying to be honest. It's a good ship and all aboard seemed to enjoy themselves. Less
