We had a wonderful time. The crew really are a credit to Celebrity - nothing is ever too much trouble for them and they do everything so cheerfully. We had the best waiters in the MDR in Mary Grace and Umesha - they truly cared about what they were serving and were fabulous. Captain Alex was very engaged with us and we looked forward to his daily announcements. Our cabin was mid ship on the hump on Deck 9 so we had a perfect view and were within walking distance of everything. Our room steward was lovely and was like the invisible man - we knew he'd been because the beds were made but he was just so unobtrusive. He kept the cabin beautifully clean. The only downside was that we have done several cruises with Celebrity and the shows are the same. It's time to get some new shows Celebrity! Read Less

My daughter, her partner and myself have had the most amazing cruise on the beautiful Celebrity Solstice cruising from Honolulu to Sydney. Why are there any negative comments regarding this ship? I honestly have no idea, not only is the ship beautiful but the staff are equally so. Staff cannot do enough to ensure your every need is met with kindness, professionalism and friendliness. The food in the main dining room and buffet were incredible. Our cabins were kept spotless by our friendly and helpful attendant. Actually serviced up to three times a day. We had our balconies opened up which gave us heaps o room. There were plenty of activities on board, you could do as much or as little as you liked. Captain Alex was a hoot, so very entertaining. I must mention Restika, Totok, Francis, Albert and Leonel from the dining room. Their service was way beyond what could be expected. Embarkation and Disembarkation were easy and carried out within minutes. I cannot thank Celebrity and her crew for one of the most memorable vacations of my life and I have had quite a few over the years. Please, please if you get the chance go for Celebrity, it really is the best. Read Less

Where do you Start.? The Good - The Staterooms ( Balcony) are bigger than other cruise lines - The corridors are bigger - The Captain was outstanding. in communication and very funny. That unfortunately is where it ends The Ship is tired - Cabin Curtains with holes - Carpets worn and stained - Public rooms are worn and tired Particularly the Passport Bar. Theatre seating very shabby. The Staff - Room attendant Mariano was great - Dining Staff Kavi and crew also where very good . Bars Not so good - even when not busy - no table service you had to go and ask and pay at counter. The drinks where thrown together with little care- Cocktails served whisky glass or high ball glass Remember your not sitting in cheap seats a Gin and tonic (Bombay ) your paying close to $ A 20 each. Organisation Very average - eg: Final day of Bingo set down for 4 pm A total mix up with the room not available to 5 pm due to movie running. A 150 Plus passengers hanging around and being told nothing. Sky Lounge - Beatles Music 10 minutes of music then games no more music - Rumba Dance Class 15 Minute max the staff could not get away quickly enough It Goes on The Daily News Letter is not News- it is a Selling document with a few activities thrown in for good luck This document is aimed at not informing you too much other than what you can buy and when. Informative No eg: Formal night never mentioned Time changes forgotten once they got it the next time. Speciality Dining - Tuscan Grille first night a birthday Food served stone cold had to be sent back - only bottle of sweet Sparking Wine available US$ 103 a bottle ( $ A 156 a bottle) Main Dining Room - Menu Entrée majority just Salads - When you got something like Seafood it was the smallest portion they could supply. Main course - Repeated the same items every second night Bar Service Dining Room - Prosecco served at room temperature 2 nights in a row - Yes it was replaced but remember your paying $A 17 a glass. Bottled wine - cheapest white wine $A 62 dollars a bottle - an average white $ A100. Entertainment - Very average - Main production shows - I have no idea who creates the shows, songs and themes - you have never hear of them. The guest entertainers of what we saw middle of the road a Country RSL at best. The Celebrity Band where very good. Gaming Room - Free Cocktails as long as you keep playing on you Sea Pass Only - In Australia your gaming licence would be reviewed. Pricing in general - Drinks - need I say more than a Beer was $A 12 want something like a Peroni Try $ 18 a bottle ( remember Celebrity is buying all the grog Duty and Tax free.) Shore excursions - booked independently tour on Maui cost $A 89 each Ship had the exact same tour different operator there bus followed us $ 240 each Overall we have sailed with Princess - Royal Caribbean and Carnival - Celebrity is marginally better than Carnival - about the same as Caribbean and no where as good as Princess which is generally cheaper for the cruise and much cheaper for on board purchase. Overall the much hyped Celebrity a disappointing product. Read Less
