Mediocre Cruise with mediocre dining

Review for Celebrity Solstice to Mexican Riviera

Having sailed at least six times on NCL in the last two years, we ventured onto this Celebrity ship to try something different. Huge mistake that we will not repeat. Two positives about this cruise: (1) The staff were generally pleasant and tried hard. (2) Embarkation and disembarkation is the fastest and easiest we ever experienced. Unfortunately that's all there is to say that's ...

Food ranged from mediocre to truly terrible, even in specialty restaurants

Embarking was a breeze. We had a standard verandah stateroom with our son, and our daughter had an interior around the corner with her boyfriend. Two issues with the cabin were 1. Not enough storage space for three people, and 2. No way to turn on any extra ventilation in the bathroom. We were comfortable enough in our bed but our son was not in the sofabed, he found it extremely hard. We called ...

A Rather Pleasant Cruise with ONE HUGE ISSUE ...

We drove from our home in Phoenix to Los Angeles and spent the night at the Best Western nearest the port. The hotel was nicer than expected, next door to Denny’s (which was also nicer than expected) and included 7 nights of free parking while we were on the cruise. We’d stay there again without hesitation. We were supposed to check-in for the cruise at 12:30PM, but since we had to be out of ...

We really liked this cruise. We were originally booked on the Celebrity Millennium, but Celebrity switched ships and we sailed on the Solstice. No problem, we really like the Solstice. It was a pre-Christmas cruise so the ship was about 70% full which was nice. Embarkation & Disembarkation were smooth & quick. There are many cruise terminals that could learn much from LA's San Pedro port ...

So... the food was great, and every single employee was super friendly. There were just a lot of little irritations throughout the cruise of various kinds, and every employee was *friendly*, but there was definitely a wide range of levels of *competence*, from "very" to "not very". Our very first issue was getting onto the ship - there was zero indication where we were supposed to go once we ...

My husband and I have taken similar cruises to Mexico a number of times, but this cruise was really special. One of the many reasons was that the ship was only about one third full which made our experience really wonderful. We had a suite so our embarkation was effortless. Our suite wasn’t the biggest, but it had a good sized balcony and a nice sized living room and bedroom. The only drawback ...

I did the Mexican Riviera Cruise from San Pedro (Port of Los Angeles) departing 10/29/22, returning 11/5/22. My assessment of the Cruise Line, Ship, and Service is very fresh. I originally booked/purchased a Veranda Room, on the 7th Floor, midship. I opted to participate in Move-Up and my bid was accepted to move up to Aqua Class. I had cruise credit, I purchased the fastest wifi, the ...

My wife and I have cruised four times before. Twice op Carnival and twice on NCL. We were very excited to book our first Celebrity cruise, however I have to say the experience definitely didn't match the hype! Like other posters have said, the ship is somewhat outdated, but overall we thought the ship held up pretty well for its age. For us the dining was a disaster! We ate in the dining room ...

Mostly went on this as had to fit in a narrow timing window, been to all destinations before. Getting on was very smooth. Getting off had a goofy and really unnecessary shuttle than was 20 minutes from onboarding to offboarding and I think it went less than 200 yards and created a huge surge in Lyft/Uber pricing. Dinner choices decent. Portions a bit inconsistent, would help to label more ...

This was a quick get away while our golf course closed for overseeded. We were able to drive to the port as only 51/2 hours away. Happy not to have to fly to cruise. Was our 3rd cruise since the reopening after Covid. More staff than passengers which made us feel pampered. Entertainment was good and always just happy to be cruising. Ports of call of no interest to us as have been on ...
