Solstice 15-April trans Atlantic cruise

This was our second cruise, our first cruise last September was a 10-day cruise on the Queen Mary 2. The Solstice 14-day transatlantic cruise turned out very different from our intial expectations. Celebrity's sales pitches/brochures and passenger revues led us to form a high level of expectationson. Unfortunately the QM2 is a hard act to follow, which greatly influenced our views and opinions ...

Great Cruise, Beautiful Ship but Could Be Improved

We just returned from a 14 night transatlantic cruise on Solstice, from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona. The Solstice is a beautiful ship, and we had high expectations based on other member reviews. Overall we were very well satisfied with the ship and the cruise; however, in our opinion, as "dazzling" as the Solstice may be, it still has some shortcomings. Note that dining, entertainment, ...

Absolutely FANTASTIC trans-atlantic cruise onboard Solstice

As a retired Naval Aviator who spent far too much time on ships at sea in my younger days, I NEVER thought cruising would become my favorite form of vacationing. I became a fan (OK an ADDICT!) 36 hours into my first five day west coast repositioning. This was my eighth cruise, second with Celebrity, first on a Solstice class ship, and first transatlantic experience. I think I am a ...

Background: I consider myself an experienced cruiser, and have sailed most of the world. While my favorite line is Crystal, I like to cruise more than I can afford with them and have also sailed with Windstar, Silversea, RCI, Cunard, HAL, and now Celebrity. While the cruise was very pleasant, I am unlikely to return to Celebrity. I saw little reason to choose it over other cruise lines and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I would say that overall this cruise on Celebrity Solstice was good. It was not great but there was very little that was outright bad. Maybe I should start at the beginning. We booked our trip before the first of the year and paid what we considered a fair price about $100 a nite. For that price point we had high expectations. After the Costa Concordia trouble prices were falling like crazy. The ...

What child designed the cabins?

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Almost everything about the cruise was wonderful, but the cabin itself was one of the worst ever... JUST the cabin was awful, not the bath which was excellent. First of all, the cabins are so narrow that, with the beds arranged as they are, it is very difficult to get from one end of the cabin to the other. One literally has to shuffle to pass the bed - VERY poor design, all in an attempt to ...

Mediocre dinner buffet choices - freezing cold Solarium pool water

without repeating at nausea in a variety of phrases the above, the ship did not meet expectations and seems to be poorly managed without an understanding regarding customer satisfaction and working in the service industry; co-incidentally, someone asked the kitchen chef where they buy their salmon, he appeared dumfounded upon this question, someone in the executive line up prompted him with 'the ...

Noro Virus Cruise Transatlantic - good cruise, but not great

My wife and I are in our early 50s, very active and seldom take ship's tours (due to not wanting to be part of the herd moving around at port, we like being off on our own). This was our 16th cruise and we had always said that we have never had a bad cruise. We still haven't, although this cruise is likely our least favorite of all of the cruises we have taken to date. It was a good cruise, ...

Transatlantic was Great, Dodging the virus, Priceless...

Where do I begin to say that I think Celebrity just likes to squirt people with santizer. Once I arrived to Barcelona and was handed a letter stating about the gastrointestinal virus that lingered on the previous cruise, I said to myself, this is going to be interesting... Embarkation: There were in the process of disinfecting the ship. I got on the shipo @ 3:30PM after waiting in the crowded ...

My wife and I are in our 60s and have been cruising for many years. We love Celebrity. However, the transatlantic cruise which sailed from Barcelona on 11/28/11 seemed like two distinct vacations. We got to the port in Barcelona around noon. We were told that boarding would be delayed because the crew was giving the ship a special cleaning to combat norovirus. We were given a number and told ...
