This was our seventh Alaska Cruise, second on Celebrity. We chose this cruise for a variety of reasons.. 9 nights instead of the usual 7; it visited the Hubbard Glacier and Sitka, where we had never been before; and it coincided with ... Read more

We wanted a high quality experience with good amenities and service. Reviews on Celebrity indicated that this was an excellent choice for an Alaskan cruise. Our cruise on the Solstice left from Vancouver May 17,2017 and returned to ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the excellent food and the itinerary was perfect. I would have rated 5 stars, but I did have a couple of annoyances, minor, but still. First the many positives: Excellent room steward, and we found all the crew ... Read more

My husband, two adult daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed this 10 day cruise once we got on! We received text, email, and phone messages from Celebrity warning of crowds at pier in Vancouver and the lines were terrible. We thought food ... Read more

The itinerary was great, service was fantastic, with so many of the staff that we could name that went the extra mile. One waiter was Bobby, although there were many others. The ship, although the largest we have siled on did not appear ... Read more

We love Hawaii and wanted to do a cruise around the islands, and we thought it would be good to cruise to Vancouver to have a longer cruise and be back close to home. We picked the Solstice because we love the Hot Glass Show they have on ... Read more

The captain of the Solstice made this journey very memorable. He was very personable, and approachable. He genuinely wanted to do what he could to ensure the passengers had a good time. He did a 360 as we passed the lava flows on Kona ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Celebrity Solstice and we enjoyed it very much. We stayed in Aqua Class cabin 1538 which was very large and well maintained. Our ports of call were excellent. We had most of our breakfasts and dinners ... Read more

This cruise was amazing. All the ports were outstanding. The Solstice is in excellent condition. There were lots of activities for sea days: ukulele lessons, hula lessons, Maori Poi Ball dance, cooking classes, a passenger chorus, ... Read more

We have booked Aqua Class cabins since introduced on the Solstice. Check in was easy, enjoyable (with happy checkers) and fast. Then check in process took maybe a total of 10 minutes. The embarkation was handled very poorly. A woman ... Read more

We chose this cruise after seeing an advert in the UK DMail in late 2015 and just fancied the itinerary. I thought, 'looks interesting, like those stop-offs, I wonder if I can get it for less . . .' After some investigation and maths I ... Read more

POSITIVES: we were on deck 7. Ship was clean, room clean. We had a balcony which was lovely. Shower room was a nice size. The bed big and comfortable. Our room steward was lovely. We had open dinning which gave us the freedom to ... Read more

My wife & I chose Celebrity Solstice for a 18-day Tahitian cruise to Hawaii, as my wife's birthday coincided with the cruise being at Bora Bora on that day. Generally speaking, the cruise was very enjoyable and strongly recommended ... Read more

We chose the Celebrity Solstice because it was supposed to be a 5 star experience travelling to great destinations like New Zealand French Polynesia and then on to Hawaii. 17 days in all. This is exactly what we got. This was not our ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on Solstice, but our 9th with Solstice Class ships, which is always our favorite. There are no water slides, wall climbing, or belly flop competetions so if this is what you enjoy, don't pick Celebrity! This is also ... Read more

Even with the amount of people on board, I though the experience would be better - the ship cannot soak up people adequately, and staffing in bars is inadequate (we all know why). The ship itself is great, shows were great, the cabin ... Read more

Great price including onboard credit and drinks packages. Didn't need to spend any extra at all for the seven days. School and uni holidays so timing good for our families. Lots of kids onboard but no worries as they were all occupied with ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we wanted an Easter based holiday and we only had to take 3 days off work to cruise for a week. Nice. We had sailed Solstice before so we knew the ship was very nice, and we chose Aqua class because at the time ... Read more

We had a great Cruise on Solstice over NY 2015/16 so booked again and upgraded to sky suite. Loved the perks and the wonderful staff however the Sky suite BADLY needed new pillows and a bed. When you book a suite you do not expect a bed ... Read more

While I normally cruise with Princess, Celebrity offered the itinerary we wanted. We paid extra for the "Concierge Class". Not worth it. The ship was lovely, but nothing really stood out other than the Hot Glass Show (which was ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise on the Solstice, the first being in 2016 and could not fault anything. But what a difference a year makes! The ship is beautiful and elegant and spotlessly clean. Staff amazing and always friendly and helpful, ... Read more
