Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by seahappy08

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 2A

I had a special birthday and this cruise and the next one gave me exotic places to visit with little effort. Loved the ports of call. The islands in French Polynesia were truly beautiful. We had no trouble tendering as we are Elite. Rose the Captain's Club Host looked after us well. Liked the extra sea days as there were plenty of addition events put on for us by Ken Mills and his staff. The Polynesian Cultural Events were very good and I would like to see more of these rolled out on different ships. The choir run by AJ, was fantastic, he really made us work. In the theatre, on the last sea day afternoon the guests and entertainers put together a show to a packed audience. It was such fun! Everyone had more time and we made lots of new friends.

I was happy with the ship and staff onboard. I have cruised over 22 times and just love it.

Great Island Circle Tour

Having booked 3 tours with Viator and then they cancelled 2 tours I was not happy so booked more tours with my hotel, which gave excellent service.

Haleakala Crater

The day started off misty but cleared to sunshine as we reached the top of the creater. Great views but would have been a long day with not a lot to see if the weather was bad.

Shark & Stingray Encounter

Taken by a decorated boat, that holds about 12 people to different sites to snorkle with fish, sharks and stingrays. Guides traditionally dressed men who serenade you along the way. Great fun! BBQ feast on the island for lunch whilst being entertained by dancing and fire juggling.

Island Tour

Tracey is an English lady living here and an excellent guide. We went to the museum to increase our knowledge of the islands. She has a great knowledge of the island and took us to many different sites and explained their meaning. We had a very nicelunch at 'the France', overlooking the sea.

We went to Magic a Mountain, what an experience and a view. The Pineapple Fields and Tropical Fruit Garden. Our favourite island, very beautiful and unspoilt.

Waitomo Caves

Family run caves much better than we expected. It was nice to have a trip outside Auckland as we had stayed there before.
