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 ...

PROS: I have to disagree with many of the reviews that decried the quality of the dining. We found dinner to be quite pleasant, even if the menu did become a little repetitive. Our waiter and assistant waiter were outstanding, and we couldn't go wrong by following their suggestions. Dinner was served efficiently so that we usually could make it to the early show in time, and the cafeteria offered ...

Having sailed on Celebrity’s Eclipse last year on the Baltic I was expecting the same high standard on her sister ship Solstice, well nothing could be further from the truth. The overall vibe of the ship was a bit hit and miss, there were some good aspects, some not so good. Let’s look at the good stuff. The cruise itself, 18 nights plenty of sea days and wonderful weather. Embarkation ...

We just returned from our cruise on Celebrity Solstice and can say that we will never sail on them again. While the ship is well maintained and easy to get around, the customer service, staff knowledge, and prices were anything but acceptable. Examples: 1) We found out that prior to arriving in Honolulu where we met the ship, all bar prices were raised 80%. This was done, as explained by ...

Boarded the ship in Honolulu. Ease of check-in very good. Activities were lacking and mostly centered around sales pitches, such as a Good Feet presentation. There were 13 at sea days with very little to do. We had a deck 3 inside cabin which was very nice. However, there was nothing to watch on TV except sales presentations -- no current news at all. Ports were -- Moorea, Tahiti, Bora Bora ...

My husband and I were told by our travel agent that this would be our creme de la creme cruise. Unfortunately, this was the worst bang for our buck of a life time of cruising. Water @$5.75 a bottle. Bingo cards starting @ $39 up. Men's restroom near diningroom was out of order for 2 days. Ladiesrooms rarely had paper toilet seat covers and never had seat sanitizer dispensers filled. Our 2nd to ...

We embarked at 4 pm on 2 November at Honolulu with departure scheduled for 11 pm. Luckily we did not try to embark earlier as other passengers told us that there was a total blockage at around 1 pm. Things went downhill from there. A suitcase was still missing at 10 pm when Emergency Drill was announced. The muster station shown on the cabin door was entirely different to that shown on our cabin ...

From the moment we boarded we knew this would be an experience like no other, and talking to other passengers everyone felt exactly the same. We had a junior suite with none of the extras as discussed on the website - eventually asking for dressing gowns. Cruise information on excursions was non existent and we were told to look it up on the internet if we wanted basic information (eg. how far to ...

We've sailed on Princess, Rhapsody and some P&O cruises so I'm comparing the ship to them. Overall I wouldn't sail with Carnival again as they don't compete. We had 3 kids 16, 13,11. There always some good points and bad so I will explain on each. An exhaustive embarkation about one and half hrs. The cabins were good and quite large. The cabin and restaurant staff good. Food in the ...
