Celebrity Solstice is a great ship

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

We just got back from our Cruise on the Celebrity Solstice and we loved the ship and the staff. My wife and i have been on about 15 plus cruise and this was the nicest ship out of all of them. Loved the Martini bar and all the great restaurants. We ate at two of the new ones. There is a cost but the food was great. We did meet Captain Gerry and i had a nice chat with Staff Capt Tasos Kafetzis. He was very nice and was more than willing to answer my questions about the ship. He is very proud and loved to talk about her.

We did have a couple issues on the boat and not really issues but annoyances, the bar staff was supper slow. Supper slow. almost like a work slow down or something. The other issues was our room attendant never picked up dirty glasses. he left there almost the the whole week. We finally had to ask him to take them. He was surprised when i asked, So maybe we missed something.

Overall we loved this ship and will go again some day. Less

Cabin review: Celebrity Solstice Concierge Class Panorama Deck (9)

We were in room 1028 it had a big bathroom and great Balcony. very quite, we never heard noise.

Port and Shore Excursions


This was the only stop we had to tender in. It takes more time and a little harder to get on and off. We went to one of the beaches and paid for chairs. The water was cold. Yep nothing like going to the caribbean. Would i go back, Yes, Will i sail with Celebrity again. Yes i will.

Another great stop. Again we used a driver at this stop. We made a decision to to Tuscany and Pisa. The driver picked us up at the port and set up 2 wine tasting for us with the owner of the vineyard. I ended up buying to cases to be shipped back. We also had lunch at a place i dont think GPS could get you to. Our driver knew right were to go.


Great stop. We ended up hiring a driver for a day. Stefano picked us up at the port and drove us all over rome. email info@driverinrome.com. yes i would recommend this company. www.driverinrome.com.

We also had a tour guide at the Vatican. Well worth the money. We booked this outside of the cruise line. just used Trip Advisor and the internet.


i would have given it a zero but 1 was the lowest number. Celebrity if you are reading this, pls dont stop at Tunis ever again. This was the worst stop i have every been at. We were forced to go to a market that bullied everyone at the market. The bus left us and we were forced to stay in the sun at 108 degrees for over 1 hour.
