Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2013
Cabin: AquaClass 2

This was our fourth cruise on a Celebrity Solstice class ship (two on Solstice, one on Equinox), 39th cruise overall. We feel that the Solstice class consists of the best designed mass market ships at sea. The overall design of this ship, cabins and public areas is consistent with the other Solstice class ships. Among the changes:

- The deck 12 pool area is missing the children's "water geyser" area in front of the bandstand. While this provides more deck space for chairs, we always enjoyed watching kids play in this area as well as walking through it ourselves to cool off a bit. From my perspective, this is a negative change.

- The Hideaway replaces the Team Earth area on deck 7-8. We only walked through this once to check it out. During the early part of the cruise it appeared to be a quiet place for reading. Later in the cruise, it occasionally appeared to be a gathering place for teens. Since we never saw much value in Team Earth, the Hideaway if probably a good change provided there is a balance between adult and teen usage.

Cabin Review

AquaClass 2

Cabin A2

Good cabin location but occasional "jet plane" noise overhead (toilet flushing? air conditioning?). Noise not enough to be bothersome or disturbing, just noticeable.
