Disappointing Solstice, poor food, poor service, covid concerns

We boarded Solstice with a group and looked forward to an amazing trip. While Alaska was fantastic, the ship was hardly adequate and there was little concern about service and food. We should have known it was an omen when we checked in at the pier for our Concierge Suite. The kid checking us in knew little about how to go about it. He NEVER asked for our negative Covid test and when I asked if he ...

In order to use up covid credits, I took my oldest daughter on this cruise. I have taken many cruises and used many cruise lines including European river cruises. It was my third trip to Alaska. There were issues with dining room seating and a rude lady concierge that took a Captains Club desk to help solve, and one excursion that refused our going because my daughter uses a walker although ...

I got a lot of great info from this site before my vacation so I want to try to share my experience and help others as well. This was a twice-rescheduled family cruise (myself and my sister and our parents and spouses) that we were originally going to do in 2020. So happy we finally got to go! My parents, who have cruised before, picked the ship and the itinerary. I have to admit I thought I ...

We had booked this cruise originally for July 2020; however, cancelled twice due to COVID pandemic. Happy to say we were finally able to cruise this time. Embarkation in Seattle (Smith Cove - Pier 91) was easy. We flew into Seattle the day before and stayed at Hotel Sorrento ... a historic Seattle hotel about a 15 minute taxi ride to the port. We arrived at the port at approximately 10:30 ...

Seven members of our family enjoyed a lovely 5 day cruise for the most part. The hostess at the dining room had great difficulty managing reservations and we were bounced from table to table in My Time Dining although our reservation was for the same time each night. Our waiter was great and the service to our rooms was acceptable. We often had to ask for missing items like clean towels and ...

Outstanding Family Alaska Cruise on Beautiful Ship

We’d done an Alaska cruise 5 years ago and thought it would be fantastic for our kids and grandkids, so we booked 4 SRs for all and took all. It is a perfect itinerary for the 3 generations. Boarding was Very Smooth. Next to us was the RCL ship and it had a line that ran the length of the dock while Celebrity had us just walk in, go through a bit of a line and all went well.Works when we show ...

This was our second time on a cruise and the first time on celebrity. To say the ship was dated and worn would be an understatement. Our cabin was an aft sunset verandah worth every penny for the view alone. There were at least ten cases of COVID on our ship; no one was wearing a mask, only the staff. Service was good, but there was an obvious language problem several times, but they did try ...

Disappointing cruise on a tired, old, not well maintained, ship.

Nightmare embarkation, no so-called health check as noted by Celebrity. Ship looks and feels old both on the interior and exterior. Outside areas rusting and missing paint. Wood surfaces, tables, stairs etc. were worn to the point where the finish was completely gone and rubber strips for traction on the stairs were peeling off. The back center wooden stairs from deck 14 to 15 were left flooded to ...

This was our 4th cruise with Celebrity, our 5th overall (the other with NCL). It was our first post-pandemic trip, we were basically forced to book because our FCC was going to expire. I wanted a domestic departure to avoid any covid travel issues that might occur with an international departure. Hubby has always wanted to go to on an Alaskan. This cruise fit the bill. Food is a big deal ...

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 ...
