Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by CarolynAustralia

  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 1A

We had a wonderful time. The crew really are a credit to Celebrity - nothing is ever too much trouble for them and they do everything so cheerfully. We had the best waiters in the MDR in Mary Grace and Umesha - they truly cared about what they were serving and were fabulous.

Captain Alex was very engaged with us and we looked forward to his daily announcements.

Our cabin was mid ship on the hump on Deck 9 so we had a perfect view and were within walking distance of everything. Our room steward was lovely and was like the invisible man - we knew he'd been because the beds were made but he was just so unobtrusive. He kept the cabin beautifully clean.

The only downside was that we have done several cruises with Celebrity and the shows are the same. It's time to get some new shows Celebrity!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda 1A

9223 is mid ship and on the hump so a perfect view out to sea but also to the back and the front of the ship. Absolutely whisper quiet.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Honolulu was nice but there is a lot of poverty outside the main area of Waikiki.


A great excursion - a very rough ride to the snorkelling point - but once there it was fabulous.

Tahiti (Papeete)

Tahiti is absolutely gorgeous. Snorkelling here was fun.

Shark & Stingray Encounter

This was an amazing experience. The water was so clear and gorgeous and we found ourselves surrounded by sharks and stingrays almost instantly. We then had time to snorkel on the reef ! A fabulous time and highly recommended.

We didn't bother with an excursion in Auckland.

Sydney (Australia)

Sydney Harbour is the most gorgeous harbour in the world - to be docked right by the Opera House and the Bridge was amazing.
