Beware of Aqua class on Solstice!!
"First I want to say that this trip on Celebrity Solstice was one of the worst cruises out of 140 that I have taken. Celebrity cruise lines has treated me unfairly by selling me a trip advertised as spa at sea on AQ..."Read More

My wife and I have gone on cruises with all the mid level cruiselines. What we have figured out is that Celebrity is for us. We do not have children, we're professionals, active, enjoy fine dining and the decorum required. It's kind of like our country club, proper dress, attitude, yet still relaxed. The clientele on Celebrity is not like Carnival, but not as stuffy as Crystal. It's a upper middle ...

During a family cruise on the Celebrity Solstice in November of 2011, I was physically assaulted by one of the crew members. When entering the main cafe I politely refused hand sanitizer and proceeded to enter as I had the entire trip. The crew member lept out in front of me, pushing me into a wall. This upset me to the point that I was unable to be with my family during the arrival to Venice. ...

It's a long review, so stick with me! A little about Me: I was 6 years old when I saw my first cruise ship. I was in Aruba, and I remember watching a Celebrity ship sail into port and being completely blown away. So it was no surprise to my parents 6 years later (12 years old) when I told them to book a Norwegian Jewel cruise for spring break. Sound a little ridiculous? Yes. I like to call ...

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 beautiful and clean. This was our second trip with Celebrity and our preferred line over Royal Caribbean and Carnival. We spent the night before in town to avoid airport madness the same ...

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 with a travel agent and booked us a sky suite on the Celebrity Solstice. I was a little disappointed as I was hoping for the Oasis of the seas or the Allure. His travel agent said if ...

Background & General Impressions - First time sailing on Celebrity. My family consists of myself, DH (both early 40s) and DD who is 6. This was my 6th cruise, DH's 7th cruise and DD's 4th. Prior to celebrity, we had been on four other lines -- princess, carnival, NCL and RCI. We booked this cruise last minute (about a week out) but so happy we did. Loved Celebrity and it has definitely moved up ...

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 beautiful. The ship was grand and impressive while still easy to navigate. We loved Stateroom 7277 with veranda! We found ample storage space (which is saying a lot as I'm a ...

Promising Cruise Cut Short By Medical Emergency & X Decision

These comments will be lengthy, but because (fortunately) most Celebrity passengers will not have the medical emergency experience we did, I thought some detail about it might be helpful to others. If you don't like medical details or are a major worrier, you might want to skip this one! My husband and I were passengers on the April 8, 2012 sailing of the Solstice from FLL to the Eastern ...

This was our 19th cruise and our 5th with Celebrity Cruises. We liked sailing on the Millennium, Constellation, Galaxy and Century. We thought we knew what Celebrity was like, so we looked forward to trying a new class of ship. Boy were we surprised! We've been to the Eastern Caribbean many times before so we were taking this cruise for rest and relaxation. We were also looking forward to ...

My wife and I and our 26 and 24 year children just got back from the last Eastern Caribbean cruise prior to it heading to Europe for the summer. We gave this cruise to our children for their Christmas present. It was my 16th cruise and second on the Solstice. We could not have been more disappointed. I took this same cruise last March 2011 and it was very nice if you compare it to NCL and other ...
