  3. Celebrity Solstice
Embarked at Fremantle, and found ship to be in good order and well maintained. The shore excursions were chaotic and badly organised, staff wanting to cut short our time ashore on over-priced excursions. Bad weather affected a couple of the tendering ports, and we queued in corridors for over an hour, not having information on disembarkation. Entertainment the worst on any ship. Didn't see the Captain, so no, if any, passenger contact. Apparently entertainments director and Capt had both recently been replaced. Celebrity needs to get its act together, so we shall be returning to Royal Caribbean for efficiently managed ships and great entertainment.

Chaotic organisation
