Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
Above and Beyond our Expectations - Solstice !
From the moment we boarded the beautiful Celebrity Solstice we knew had made the right decision. After several months of reading reviews on cruise critic we booked with Celebrity and are extremely happy with our choice. Embarkation was excellent. We arrived at 11;30 and boarded quickly. We had a nice lunch and then we had a drink on deck while we waited for our room. The room was very well decorated and lots of storage. I was happy that our laptop was able to fit in the safe. The balcony was perfect and we spent every morning with coffee and croissants delivered by the smiling room service staff enjoying the view .

From our Cabin Stewarts, waiters, bar servers , and all staff we met onboard - wow , we couldn't be happier! They all greet you with a smile as well as they provided excellent service. We had the Premium Beverage Package and it proved to be a very good deal for us. We enjoyed the latte's at the Cafe and tried lots of different cocktails throughout the cruise. We did spend a lot of time at the Pass Port bar, especially loved Johannes , VJ and Stan. They not only provided excellent service they were so nice to talk with. We choose Select Dining and enjoyed all the dinners in the MDR. We didn't want to be on a schedule so this did work very well for us. I think it may be better if you do make reservations though - if you want the same table, or even waiter. Most nights the maitre de was able to accommodate this . As for loungers, like other posters have mentioned there is 'saving' chairs happening all over the ship. We are early risers anyway, so this really was not an issue. We enjoyed a couple of the shows, be sure not to miss the Glass show as well. The ports we visited were all new to us and we did enjoy our time off the ship! We met some great folks of all ages on the trip. Disembarking was terrible on this trip- not sure if that is Celebrity's fault or not- it did seem like many people just couldn't wait there turn. Anyway that in no way ruined our great time on the Solstice. We will return for sure.
