After a miserable boarding process, the week's cruise was just great!

First Time on Celebrity

I chose Celebrity after being bumped at the last minute from a June 1 sailing of Cunard's Queen Elizabeth due to "staffing issues", despite being a Cunard Platinum World Club member. I chose Celebrity over Princess and Holland America because Celebrity is supposedly a "cut above" Princess in particular. (Tried Princess twice .. never again!) PRICE: I feel like I got a pretty good deal on a ...

From the moment we boarded the Solstice until the day we departed, the crew of the Solstice gave us an exceptional cruising experience. Yes, as some people have said, the interior of the ship is dated and she is ready for her retrofitting to a Retreat vessel. But hat being said, some older furniture and a few carpet stains could not ruin our voyage. We ate in Luminae as we stayed in a Suite, ...

Second time to Alaska, but first time on Celebrity. The ship is in great shape with the only exception being the mini bars. In most cases, based on our informal elevator survey these can't be called refrigerated at all. If you need that for medical or other reasons be aggressive early. They don't have spare units or anyone that can fix them as best we can tell. Even with all the empty rooms ...

Ship was Run down and Worn out

After having great cruises on both the newer Edge & the Apex ships we were totally dissatisfied with the run down interior of the Ocean View Cafe and the Sky Lounge. The furniture had stains, torn chairs, ripped drapes and some of the glass windows were so dirty you could barely see out of them. My wife & I thought Celebrity was a luxurious brand. We never saw even once, not one bar waiter in the ...

We decided to splurge on the Retreat with a Sky Suite and Luminae Restaurant. Worth every dollar, Premium Beverage Package enables you to choose from plenty of wbtg and spirits, beers. Host Service in suite and Housekeeping was outstanding. I even had a personalized cake waiting in our suite with rose petals! Luminae staff was Four Seasons level, hostess Roxana, Somm Angga and Server Aaron ...

Don't get waylaid: Celebrity boards their ships from Pier 91, not Pier 66 (used by Norwegian and Oceana Cruises). We were not clearly given this info. The two locations are miles apart. Unless you specify, a taxi/Lyft/Uber will take you to the original "cruise ship terminal" which is pier 66. There is no shuttle from there to the correct pier 91. When we finally reached the correct pier, another ...

I have taken 1 Carnival cruise ages ago. 1 Royal Caribbean 15 years ago and about 14 Norwegian cruise line cruises. On the Celebrity-Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth. I loved the size of ship. Never overcrowded. Perfect size. Cabin- in comparison to even the Norwegian new ships but had amazing storage. Didn’t need my over the door plastic shoe rack due to the great storage in bathroom. ...

It is always so interesting to me how different people have such different experiences when traveling. I heard a lot of happy people and I heard a lot of whining on the ship, but I can only share my experience and we had a fantastic time sailing on Solstice. When traveling my top priority is always the destinations, the scenery! Alaska did not disappoint - it was breathtaking! Cruising is a ...

We flew into Seattle the day before departure. Seattle was beautiful. Took the shuttle to the cruise port. Boarding went well. Excellent stateroom location - 8269. Did dinner and show the first night. On the second day, my DW developed gout in her toe. She hopped around till she couldn't take it anymore. Our steward got us a wheelchair and pushed her to the medical center and came and got her ...

Great itinerary...mostly mediocre ship

I booked this particular ship due to the itinerary as it related to the time in port in the three Alaska ports. The hours in port were longer and or better to my liking than the other cruise lines I explored when planning this trip. Out of the 5 cruises I have been on (3 Carnival, 1 Royal Caribbean, and this one on Celebrity.) This was the overall worst of the 5 cruises. The only highlights was ...
