Solstice review

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 26, 2015

Food was excellent.  Cabin was special and all the furniture's corner were rounded which I especially liked. I came home with no bruises. Shore excursions were too expensive.  No shore explanation was given.  Customer service did not have much information. 14th floor café- there was a bar across the window which is on the eye level. You need to stretch above the bar or bend down below the bar to see outside.  You can say the same for the 5th floor theater.  Over all, it was a good cruise.

WONDERFUL VACATION

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 26, 2015

This was an amazing cruise, I can't wait to go again! Get a balcony stateroom, worth the extra $$. Bring sunscreen and a whole lot of energy. Pack basics and a camera, comfortable shoes (more walking than I expected), and your lucky charm for use with raffles, drawings, bingo, and the casino! The different types of bread were amazing, and you could watch the chef making the dough...mmmmmm.

Good basic cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

A very nice cruise. I was disappointed with the food and presentation were ok at best. Hard sell pitches were every where during the cruise. The highlight of our cruise was whale watching. The cruise was a nice introduction to Alaska

was a nice cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 12, 2015

Unfortunately Celebrity's service and food has steadily declined after Royal Caribbean purchased them. The ship its self was clean and spacious. The Tracy Arm Fjord and all other ports of call were fantastic. Awesome views and smooth seas.

Outstanding--better than I expected

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 12, 2015

This was my fist time cruising and I have to admit I was a little anxious.  I did not know what to expect or even what the words meant?  How could I pick a port or starboard side of the ship or a dining group time when I dont really know the pros or cons of each?  Well, I guess I either got lucky or Celebrity has that covered, because we had a fantastic time.  I am a foodie, so i was very concerned about the quality of the food and the quality of the coffee.  Coffee quality was outstanding--they use Lovazza (coincidentally my favorite brand).  The food was better than I can possibly describe.  We got to eat all our meals in Luminae (restaurant just for suites) and I cannot imagine a better place. Picture the single best bite of food you have ever eaten, then picture it 3 meals per day for 7 days.  It really was THAT good.  Service was outstanding and made us feel like royalty.  Oh yea, there was Alaska, too.  I will FOR SURE go again, possibly next year.

Alaska Solstice Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 12, 2015

We researched Alaska cruises and determined that we wanted an upscale cruise experience. Having cruised many other times on other carriers , we decided on Celebrity . We were not disappointed. Solstice is a very well appointed and clean ship. Our aft balcony suite was better than expected. The food on Solstice is way better than any other cruise ship we've been on. The ships staff was also very much better than on any other ship we've been on. Love this ship.

Love it!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 12, 2015

Everything was perfect. LoveFrom the time we arrived on the ship, we were very comfortable and treated well. The ship could use an updating in the rooms and shows, but I really don't go for the room or shows anyway. Clean, great service and amazing scenery. We are so fortunate to have Alaska! No folly to me!

Great

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 05, 2015

Our family had a great time. From the Booking with Orbitz to the end of the trip. The service was great on the cruise (Joey and Ivan the best servers) Alaska was beautiful, took over 2000 photos.  People were friendly, tours were great and the views amazing.

We got the balcony on the back of the boat so we got to see the views from right and left of the ship. If you are into photography like myself, its worth the extra price although it can be a bit cold, so bring a jacket but the fresh air makes up for it.

Mature Group

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: Jun 05, 2015

Love the ship, beautiful locations for amazing photo's. The select group for this cruise was an elderly group. (walkers, wheelchairs everywhere)This particular cruise is not your typical party boat. If you want to get away and relax or spend some quality time with family and/or friend(s) this is the cruise for you. Perfect ship to take mom or grandma on. I enjoyed seeing the elderly enjoy life in their golden years. God Is Good!!!

The food was plentiful, however the same menu everyday was a bit boring towards the end of the cruise. I was expecting at least one night of CRAB ~ I mean we're traveling Alaska. The only good show was the dancers, one comedian left the boat early and the one who took his place was reading from his notes. I felt a little cheated.

Our room service was good. We tipped him very well. Although I was expecting more towel designs upon entering the room at night. One animal looking arrangement for the entire trip.

BEST CRUISE EVER!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Solstice | Sail Date: May 29, 2015

After many cruises, my wife and I enjoyed our Alaska adventure through our favorite travel agent Mr Eddie Malone with Cruises Only. We were impressed with every aspect of our trip, from our initial contact with our agent and the ease with the booking process, the arrangement of our shore excursions, our on board accommodations on our Celebrity Cruise ship Solstice, whose staff and crew members made us feel so welcomed, the people at all of our ports of call, who were so friendly, answering all of our questions and concerns and making our adventure  a truly memorable experience!!!

Alter your meal times for lunch and supper, no lines usually and always plenty of foods in the full buffet on the 14th floor. Lots of healthy choices for a diabetic. We used room service for coffee and breakfast most morning. I am not familiar with any other food services on the ship.

Eat in the dining rooms whenever possible. The Oceanview Cafe was so-so, though a good spot to get ice-cream and gellato. The Bacio Cafe gave nice sweets just for the asking and were good to take back to the cabin. The hamburgers at the Mast Grill were very good.

Take advantage of the specialty restaurants. They are well worth the cover charge.
