Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by orlandofl

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Class 3

Started cruising in the 70's when Carnival had only one ship before all these mega ships,all they care about now is milking as much money as they can.In my over 3 dozens cruises,i finally will give it up or cruise with the smaller more refined cruise lines.I always heard Celebrity was above the rest,but came to realize maybe they were,but not anymore.Their food is not for experienced cruisers and foodies like myself.I ate one night in the main dining room and that was it !Ate the rest of my meals at restaurants while in port and at the ship buffet and room service for breakfast.The cabin attendants expect double or triple their recommended tips.There is not even a room for the guest to use to iron their clothes,you have to pay for that service.The aft cabin on the 10th floor Concierge class Elite was a nice package with the balcony a big plus.Inexperience passengers will thinks it's great because they never knew what it was like back in the days.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 3
Cabin C3 1999

Cabin was nice with enough room for suitcases,bath robes were thick and warm.Very nice movies and music to choose from.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Spent 3 nights in Seattle before cruise,it's a very expensive city and Pike Market is just a tourist trap.


Very nice for just walking around and doing a bit sight seeing.

Mendenhall Glacier Rafting

100% guarantee of seeing whales,we saw 3 one with a calf.Mendenhall Glacier was great,but not enough time for you to walk to the foot of the water fall.was a big disappointment for us.

Nothing to do there,the walk to town is just too far and very expensive.The gardens and a log home on 10 acres is all there is to see.The ship should never stop there.
