  3. Celebrity Solstice
After sailing on smaller cruise ships, we decided to try one of the larger ones, and Celebrity was recommended to us, a party of six. Many pro's and con's. Solistice, is a beautiful ship, luxurious and with many small hideaways, bars and restaurants. The buffet in the Ocean Cafe, was AMAZING, the choice of food each day was original and themed. You can get very carried away with the amount on offer, one of the best i have seen. We enjoyed the outside table, but it is a bit of a challenge to find a seat sometimes, and on especially, sea days, very packed out, busy and off putting. Shore days, no problem. Bars: Many great bars, but again, when busy, takes a while to get a drink, sometimes, you can only see one person serving..we walked away from a few pool bars, as staff were busy chatting to guests, which is ok, but service still should be maintained. Cabins: Nice comfortable cabins, with the best beds we have ever slept on...best nights sleeps on any of the cruises we have ever done. Entertainment: half the shows are brilliant, half, not too good, sit at the back in case you need to leave early. Cabin Charges: this was hard to manage, with constantly over charging and checking on a daily basis, not a fan of showing your card for every single thing...even for water. All inclusive should be an option. The main dining restaurant was excellent, our watiers, Mathew and Happy, were some of the best we have ever encountered. Felt like we were on a luxury cruise with their level of service
