Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by johnluland

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Class 1

Boarded ship in Honolulu and was onboard within 30 minutes. Went straight to Grand Epernay dining room for lunch. Bags arrived promptly except 1 which went astray but turned up early evening.

Stateroom was Concierge 2102 up on the 12th Floor nearest the lifts. DO NOT choose this cabin as it has a storeroom right next door and then a ladies toilet. Being located close to the lifts was handy, but the lift bells were going throughout the night. All in all a very noisey cabin that should not be classed as Concierge. The afternoon Canapés served in the Stateroom are embarrassingly bad and it would be best they not serve them at all.

Chose 1st seating in the main dining room. Table was located under the stairs and we were separated from the rest of the dining room, no atmosphere at all. We saw the Maitre de and he managed to change us.to anytime dining which was fantastic. Food was of a high standard. Visited the 3 select dining restaurants which were amazing.

Went to the Solstice Theatre each evening where the entertainment was very good.

Service was of a high standard and all of the crew, apart from a few were always smiling and seemed to enjoy themselves. Nothing was too much effort.

Did our own thing in each of the ports and had fun.

Apart from the noisey cabin, this was a great cruise. Met so many new acquaintances and some of them will be lifelong friends.

Would highly recommend Celebrity Solstice.

Ship was heading up to Singapore for a refit. Apart from some worn furniture, the ship is in really good shape!

Very noisey cabin. Would never choose this cabin again. Fantastic location, but did not get a lot of sleep.

Stayed at The Embassy Suites by Hilton for 3 nights prior. Fantastic hotel in a very good location.

Tahiti (Papeete)

Had a stroll around town. Been here before so did not do a lot.


Went to a private swimming area near the island. Very nice.


Just wandered around town and went for lunch at the viaduct.
