This was our 3rd cruise, on the solstice, Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly and quickly, The staff were helpful and friendly and went out of their way to please you, Our cabin was great, clean and tidy, { not that we spent much time there}, Dining was outstanding, fine dining or smorgasboard on 16th both fantastic, and don't forget the hot dogs and hamburgers at the master grill bar outside, Entertainment was great, and the night shows got better and better as the cruise went on,.Hygene hand sanitiser, was used in all eating areas and when you get back onto the ship, The only downside that we weren't told about, were the bus transfers from Yorkeys Knob to Cairns $20 US Return per passenger per day, and then when you got to Cairns you had to get a taxi or bus and pay again. The same in Brisbane $28 us return. I think they could of done a better price. Over $140 aust return for 2 people [not happy], We had 2 days in Cairns, I think 1 day was enough, and should of had 2 days in Port Douglas, easy tenders over and lots to do, what a beautiful place, Newcastle was a lovely place to, we didn't do any shore excursions very over priced,on ship, but in cairns and port douglas and Newcastle, there were places to buy tickets for a good price, We had a fantastic cruise, we met some fantastic people and saw some fantastic sights 10/10 celebrity solstice until we meet again 2020 thanks for the memories

Cabin Review

Cabin 6171
great cabin, tender just under us no obstruction looking outwards, only looking downwards,(who looks downward) Lovely and clean, but if you have a lot of clothes to hang up, bring some spare hangers (you can leave them behind) otherwise outstanding
