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.

Cabin review: AquaClass

A11540
Aqua class 1540 very quiet no problems at all but too small in size for the class Its 1540 but located on the 11th floor

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
Really nothing special to do very flat island, stores within walking distance or taxi ride We just stayed at the beach, where you pay one price for chair and unlimited soda or more for alcoholic drinks Low prices on jet skis Also bargained down massage 1/2 hour for 10usd bought hand made lizard skin cowboy boots for 150 usd Love them at th shops in port
