  3. Celebrity Solstice
Embarked at Barcelona (having stayed in the city for two days prior to cruise)a pain free, smooth process. Picked up a glass of champagne and wandered through the ship overwhelmed by the size and beauty of the Celebrity Solstice. What followed was a truly fantastic 12 nights/13 days of bliss. The service was excellent, food fabulous, ship amazing. Cannot fault our first cruise at all. Thank you Celebrity! A brilliant Stateroom 8228. Lovely Balcony - not overlooked by anyone. Great uninterrupted views. Dining was an amazing experience. Waiters fabulous. Professional at all times. Food was amazing in all restaurants. Entertainment. Plenty of entertainment available to either take part in or not. If you want to relax you can or if you want to cram in as much activity you can. Something for everyone. The shows are great with two chances to see them each night. Something different every day. Staff: All staff on board are great. Professional, fun, helpful - even the Senior Captains and the Captain got involved in activities. Overall this was a fabulous holiday. For our first cruise it was perfect and will definitely sail again with Celebrity. Pure luxury!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda
Cabin 1A 8228
8228 - right near the lift in mid ship. Great place to be. No noise at all from people coming and going from the lift. Great to be centre of the ship. Stateroom itself was compact but perfect.This stateroom has uninterrupted views out to see and not overlooked. To sit out and watch the world go by is just perfect. A balcony is a must have. 8228 is port side so great views when sailing into destinations. Would recommend this stateroom but did not see other staterooms so cannot compare.
