"We purchased a Deluxe Veranda cabin, with the Classic alcohol package and the specialty dinner package. As a 10x cruiser, we never felt more pressure to purchase upgrades or less welcome that we didn't purchase a..."Read More
1-10 of 32 Celebrity Solstice Cruise Reviews for Senior Cruises to Alaska
I booked this particular ship due to the itinerary as it related to the time in port in the three Alaska ports. The hours in port were longer and or better to my liking than the other cruise lines I explored when planning this trip. Out of the 5 cruises I have been on (3 Carnival, 1 Royal Caribbean, and this one on Celebrity.) This was the overall worst of the 5 cruises. The only highlights was ...
Overheard: "Oh great... another line to stand in."
Nice staterooms with good layout.
Cabin steward/staff excellent.
Nice connecting rooms for those with kids.
Nice, clean bathrooms.
Naturalist Brent Nixon... while he may be a bit dramatic, he knows his audience. Lectures were informative and entertaining.
Captain Tasos was entertaining as ...
The ship is very elegant but aging. Our cabin had broken furniture and for Aqua class not very spa like. Our can attentant keep everything very tidy. But we did not receive all perks of our booking. And when there was an issue Guest Services had no desire to help.
Blu, the dining room for Aqua class, was awlful. We went to the main dining room most nights. The buffet was very poorly laid out ...
We spent a lot of money on this cruise. We were not treated very well by the staff. They were rude and condesending. They gave away our dinner reservations that were made months in advance. They didn't have enough food in the buffet. Lines for food and drinks on the decks were very long. It's like the didn't plan on the ship being sold out. Marterdi was rude. Waiters were rude. Shows were fun but ...
I chose this cruise because the medical centre has dialysis machines and my wife has kidney failure. However at the last minute she was unable to travel. Celebrity Cruises insisted that I pay the fare for a single person travelling in the cabin although the dialysis company did refund some of the cost of dialysis and a small portion of the additional cost that dialysis patients and their partners ...
My extended family decided on Celebrity Alaska Cruise. This was my first time on Celebrity.
Dealing with website precruise was dreadful. Embarkation was very smooth, so expectation rose, but welcome lunch in MDR for concierge class was a joke. You only had a few lunch options, all of which were terrible. Skip it and go to the Ocean View Cafe.
Ship was nice looking. Some nice bars. ...
We have been sailing Celebrity Cruise lines for 15 years. Our most recent trip was on Celebrity Solstice our of Seattle, Washington to Alaska on June 29th, 2018. Overall the we had a wonderful time at all the ports and had beautiful weather, which is always a gamble in Alaska. Captain Tasos was is by far the best Captain of any ship/cruise line I have been on. He had an amazing sense of humor ...
This was our 2nd cruise to Alaska. We chose Celebrity this time because we never sailed this line before and the perks seemed good as well as a great price for Aqua Class. Also we were going to Skagway where we never went.
What a true disappointment in cruise line.
Check in was smooth however we got a brand new girl who was so slow we waited a good 20 minutes to be checked in and couldn't ...
Went on this cruise to celebrate my sisters and I birthdays. As far as having family together it was fine. But the amenities and everything else on board were just barely standard. Several things about this cruise were off
1) To start with i purchased an upgraded room and the room was just what i had on other cruise lines for a lot less money. We did have a nice veranda though. We were suppose ...
