What child designed the cabins?

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 ...

Post Costa Cruising

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 ...

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 ...

Great Transatlantic Crossing

Although we had done Transatlantic crossings twice on Cunard (each direction) we had never done a Cruise Transatlantic. But, we love the Solstice class ships and it was a great offer and itinerary from Barcelona to ...

Norovirus not all that bad

Harpo's view was right on but we had a slightly different view. This was our first transatlantic cruise and we can't think of a more civilized way of returning home; that is, until the chaos on disembarkation in ...

Good Transatlantic Despite Norovirus

The most important thing to remember as you read this review is that Solstice had a norovirus outbreak some two cruises before ours and was therefore at Code Red before the ship even arrived in Barcelona to pick us ...

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 ...

We flew to FLL and stayed at Motel8 near the airport. Not a luxury hotel, mind you, but clean, cheap and they had a shuttle from the airport and to the dock. Also they were within walking distance to a liquor store, ...
