Ship Facts: Celebrity Solstice Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Solstice Deck Plans
Great Transatlantic Crossing
Although we had done Transatlantic crossings twice on Cunard (each direction) we had never done a Cruise Transatlantic. But, we love the Solstice class ships and it was a great offer and itinerary from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale, with some interesting ports along the way.

Our cabin was the typical Solstice balcony cabin, no wasted space, but certainly comfortable with a better than adequate bathroom.

We were a party of four, with two single woman friends joining my husband and me. We had decided this was a good time to try the anytime seating for dinner and the first night ate in the area set aside.

It was not a good experience, with the servers rushing around, people coming and going throughout the meal and it was crowded. Our server tried her very best but we just weren't satisfied with the experience.

We asked to change and were given an excellent table in the MDR, with a great wait team and pleasant location.

Since we had already visited most of the Ports we didn't take any excursions but all the ports were easily accessible for walks or hop-on bus tours and the port days were enjoyable.

Punta Delgada, in the Azores was new to all of us so we took a sightseeing and wine tasting excursion. Parts of it were fascinating and lovely; the wine tasting was more amusing then enlightening and we had time to stroll along the wharf area before we had to board.

Our favorite place on the Solstice was the Hot Glass Studio. We loved the shows and didn't miss a single one. The talent and exuberance of the artists was terrific and we were thrilled to purchase a piece at the charity auction on the last day.

We are looking forward to our next Transatlantic on the Equinox April 16.
