Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by Perthguy
- Sail Date: October 2015
- Destination: Australia & New Zealand
- Cabin Type: AquaClass
Food was "wow" in Blu and well worth the upgrade. Entertainment was much better than we expected and there was always something to see and do on the sea days if you prefer not to relax with a book. Everything is spotlessly clean. Shore excursions were good and we know we paid a little more but it was our first time. Coffee and Drink prices were scary to say the least and we were glad we got Classic packages. A glass of Pino Grigio was USD12 and a coffee around USD5 - USD6. That hurts when your exchange rate is only 70 cents. Internet was sold in time rather than data and in the middle of the Pacific we burned valuable minutes on nothing. Would recommend unlimited.
Free access to the saunas and heated beds was great, as well as gym access for all passengers. You could hardly tell there were 2850 passengers on board. Would recommend to anyone but have a good think about how you will manage drink prices before you go.

HikingYou need to be really fit to do the Coconut Trail Hike but the views are breathtaking at the top and worth it. Take LOTS of water.View All 3 Hiking Reviews
