Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by Harveybulldog

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 2C

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We had not been to these destinations before and this cruise offered us just what we wanted. The crew was really friendly and most of them always acknowledged us and many of them entered into a conversation. The cabin was always cleaned well, but it could do with a little updating, some of the furnishings need replacing. The guest entertainers in the theatre were ok however, the the ships dancers and singers put on very good shows. Some of the entertainment singers or bands around the ship were very good especially a young group, Jeam Beam and two girl violinists. The daily activities could have been better, again not a lot to choose from unlike P&O cruises.The Oceanview Cafe served a very good range of food and we ate there in the evening too, the Maitre D’ Zeljko Cickovic always found time to chat and couldn’t do enough to help. We feel the restaurant didn’t offer enough of a choice for the evening meal although the food was good.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda 2C

The cabin was very nice but could do with a little updating of the furnishings, the curtain were a bit tatty. On more than one occasion there was flakes of paint outside on the balcony which was on the chairs and tables after they washed down the balconies. We did report this and they sent up someone to sweep it up and then an officer came to check.
