Just returned from Far East cruise on Solstice. I have sailed with Celbrity a couple of times before and was happy with those cruises, so content to use them again. Solstice though is a ship in real need of updating and refurbishment as looking very dated and shabby in parts. Had a balcony cabin that was kept very clean by a great attendant (Jovie) and she also ensured we were happy with everything and checking every day if we ever needed anything more. The staff/crew in all areas were helpful, friendly and available. Always seemed able to get a drink and seat in any area without any delays, so that was good (like to take advantage of drinks package!) and indeed got efficent service in the Cafe. That said, the cabin furniture was looking worn and shabby as was seating in other areas of the ship. The food in the buffet was good, but very repetitive and only used the main dining twice and not impressed with the food, although the service was good. The entertainment staff, particulary the Cruise Director Steve and the energetic bundle of fun Maria were always friendly approachable and about. The quality of the resident vocalists though left a lot to be desired as they seemed unable to hold a tune or keep in time and key with the excellent musicians in the orchestra!! I guess the cruise line is saving money by hiring lower quality kareoke level vocalists! So the entertainment crew shows were pretty average and sometimes hard to understand what was going on with the show. So be aware if cruising on Celebrity Solstice, you'll probably enjoy the cruise, but adjust your expectations on qualiyu

Bangkok (Laem Chabang)

Great fun in Bangkok and interesting place to visit. Port needs to be welcomong to cruise ships though.
