too many seniors critics

If it wasn't for seniors (60 and above ) half the fine restaurants in the USA would go out of business in a week. Also 1/2 the cruise ships would be scrapped within a year. Seniors have the money and the time to ...

Nice to get away, nice ship, not what I was expecting

The purpose of this trip was to decompress and spend time together. It didn't matter where we were going; I just wanted to be pampered and fed. Overall, the Solstice accomplished the mission. The ship was ...

This was my boyfriend's first cruise, and my first one in over 15 years. My brother used to work for the big red boat, so I got to go on a lot of cruises back then. He was really excited to go on a cruise, consulted ...

We've been fortunate to have a great cruise experience on each of our 3 cruises. However, Celebrity seemed to offer a high class of service and provided a much more relaxed experience that either Royal or Disney. ...

What's not to Love?

Embarkation was virtually painless and we were aboard the ship with champagne in hand in about 30 minutes. Beauty, of course, is in the eye of the beholder, and we found the Solstice to be elegant, sleek, and ...
