Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
Celebrity Solstice a Pleasure
Celebrity Solstice was a breath of fresh air, for once we didnt feel nickel and dimed for every little extra. Sailing in Aqua class everything is included. Everyday, fruit, canapes and some sort of drink was delivered to the room. Loads of amenities included a beach bag, slippers, robes, bottled water in room etc etc etc

Also we really appreciated that there was ice cream, sorbet and low fat ice cream all day long in the

cafeteria,( why they had a shop selling gelato is beyone me) they were soo good, try the Litchee sorbet

Blu our specialty restaurant was wonderful, healthy and seems like low calorie food, beautifully

served, by very attentive waiters, and for once we saw the Maitre D everyday. They even called your room to leave a msg thanking you for having gone to dinner in the Blu.

Only little bad note is that the aqua class balcony rooms are no larger than the normal balcony rooms

and we found these a little too small. We were supposed to be three luckily, the third person backed out of trip and we had the room for ourselves, it would have been awful for 3, no closet space, and if the couch/bed would have been opened we wouldnt have even been able to walk in the room.

Apart from that the room was fine. Absolutely no noise from hallway or other rooms.

The ships passengers median age seemed to be from mid 30s and up. Very little children or adolescents due to it not being a school holiday, so very little noise that end either. But the ship seems much more suited to adults, not young children as there arent that many sport activities on board like all of the Royal Carribean ships. Forget movie theater there was none!! And they did the Wii in the discotheque.

All excursions we found ourselves outside or inside the port arrival areas

Way less than the excursions offered on ship of course. In Roaton pls dont miss the Gumbalimba park

you can go all day There is a monkey park where they come sit on your shoulders and head soo cute

until one stole the earring off one of the ladys in the group, continued to eat it for 10 minutes, but he eventually threw it down. They advise you to put all your bright stuff, bags etc in a locker beforehand. There are parrots, other animals and an insecterium to visit. Zip lininig or canapy tour is 10usd more and snokeling with a guide to reefs is 15usd more than admission which also gives you bus roundtrip. a great day overall. But try to take a lunch off boat or snacks as they have very little, i bought a cheeseburger for 10usd!! They didnt have much else, oonly down side.

I would definetly reccomend this cruise and Celebrity ship to everyone

and can t wait to go on another.
