The cruise around the Islands of the Galapagos was great. It far exceeded expectations and we were very happy. It seems that all the cruise lines are under the fist of the Galapagos Islands and have some very stringent rules they must ... Read more

We recently lost our cruising virginity on a 14 day cruise from Buenos Aries around Cape Horn to Valparaiso. Quite frankly, I am glad we saved ourselves for Celebrity. My wife and I like active cycling and/or hiking vacations and we ... Read more

On February 24, 2012, my wife and I left on a 10-day Celebrity Equinox cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. We stayed in a balcony room overlooking one of the lifeboats. We knew about the restricted view so that wasn't really a surprise. Before ... Read more

Cruising was a lot more comfortable than taking trains, planes, and other methods of rushing across Europe, trying to get to different places. The Solstice was a beautiful ship and I was glad to go AquaClass, because it gave me access to ... Read more

We have just arrived home from the Celebrity Solstice after 12 days in the Med from the 4th November 2011. Embarkation: Due to the fact that they had about 100 cases of Noravirus on the previous cruise Celebrity decided to have a deep ... Read more

In reading other people's reviews, we noticed a constant theme which was, "trip of a lifetime" and that proved to be the same with our trip. If you are planning on taking this trip as a relaxing cruise, think again and change to another ... Read more

Just recently returned from a 12-day Eastern Mediterranean trip, over all we had a great time. The Solstice staff were engaging and happy to make the stay on the ship as enjoyable as they can. We did not partake in the specialty ... Read more

We went on the same cruise as Patthecruiser and had the stateroom next door to his. My comments are similar to his. This was an overall wonderful experience. The small ship with only 92 passengers meant that we got to know nearly ... Read more

The Ship: There have been ample reviews about the decor of the ship and I admit its impressive, with some wonderful artwork. The cabins are lovely, about the best we have seen apart from no light on the balcony, great beds and bedding no ... Read more

Amen to "the trip of a lifetime." Plan on a lot of walking and never a dull moment, but everything was so well done and coordinated by Celebrity. I can find nothing to fault about the entire cruise. You all will have the best time, but ... Read more

We booked this trip 18 months in advance after visiting a travel show. I was a little concerned because I didn't think the Galapagos cruise on Celebrity could be as good as everyone said, but I was wrong... It was better. We have never ... Read more

We were interested in this cruise because it sailed so far north and because it had many days at sea (every other day), which are the ones we enjoy the most. In summer we try to escape from the heat, and look for cold and long days. ... Read more

Like all the other Cruise Critic correspondents, we had a great time in the Galapagos - we have done 37 previous cruises and this was probably the best. We Brits can fly from Europe to Quito direct, via Madrid or Amsterdam, but we ... Read more
