Just back from the August 8th sailing of Solstice to Alaska. In this review, I will specifically try to address some of the recent concerns raised here on cruisecritic.

We are relatively new to cruising with only one previous experience on Millennium. Solstice is a better ship in every way than Millennium. While on Millennium, I started making a mental list of all the problems with the ship (rust, shattered glass, splattered paint, loose carpet, worn lounge chairs, pool scum ... the list goes on). With Solstice, I didn't even bother making a list because there are so few flaws. It is a big ship, but rarely seemed crowded (but we did notice long waits for the elevators at times).

We enjoyed the unique features of Solstice such as bocce ball on the lawn, Hot Glass demonstrations, and the Brent Nixon lectures.

Cabin Review

Good cabin location on the "hump". Close to the mid-ship elevators. Quiet - we noticed no noise. Can be combined with 9274 for connecting cabins.
