Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
Enjoyed the ship and ports
This was our 17th cruise and as usual we enjoyed. We have already been to all the ports so we did not schedule any tours. Made arrangements at several ports for a taxi that took us to places that we preferred from previous cruises. We went to Positano at the Naples Port by taxi. We took the train in to Rome on our own. Had a taxi tour Mdina at Malta. Taxi to Plaka in Athens. Santorini, Mykonos & Kusadasi we just stayed in the port town and enjoyed coffee and lunch while shopping. Much more relaxed cruise as we were not rushing around trying to see everything.

We were in Concierge class so enjoyed some perks such as the fresh squeezed orange juice and broad breakfast menu for room service. Room and balcony were same size as regular cabins. Cabin service was not exceptional. Would not book this class ( extra cost) however, we book so late that there was no guarantee of having a non-obstructed view.

Food in main dining room seemed a little disappointing. We had some tough meat and less choice. Feel like the ships have lowered their food standards in the dining room. Perhaps better in the "pay extra" dining rooms. Did not go to the specialty dining rooms.

Thought the buffet on level 14 was always pretty good for lunch. Had a good selection of pastas, pizza, salads, etc. Never could go hungry.

Cafe al Bacio on deck 5 was nice for some good coffee and yummy snacks, cookies and desserts.

Rooms were nice. Storage seems a little lacking - need to use the above the bed storage which is a little difficult to reach. The bathroom is very nice - great shower. Lighting in the room is nice with night light for bathroom. Enjoyed balcony (great weather) and very private. Nice t.v. with movies.

Went to some shows - not to impressive. Enjoyed Jon Courtenay - great entertainer - plays piano & sings. He was outstanding and got a standing ovation.

Husband used the spa for massages - pretty good but expensive.

We booked this cruise last minute. We good a great price for this cruise. We did enjoy it!
