Fun way to visit the South Pacific

Celebrity Solstice is an amazing ship that has pretty much anything you could need. We enjoyed great dinners in the main dining room with excellent staff. 

Many of the destinations offered snorkeling and interesting cities to walk around. The fitness facilities were nice, with well maintained machines and plenty of options of machines. There was always something going on to keep us entertained.

Sydney to Singapore -- some great, some not so great

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It was an interesting itinerary, but 3 tender ports, which especially @ Bali, took forever.  Therefore very ltd time in Bali which was disappointing.  The two stops for the Great Barrier Reef were enjoyed by my husband snorkeling. Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth.  The cabin steward was good, the ship was in pretty good shape considering it went into drydock when we arrived in Singapore.  

The Main Dining Room suffers from either bland food or disjointed service, or on some nights, both.  The specialty restaurants were great, esp Murano.  Hefty upcharge, but on a long cruise it felt necessary.  The shows were blah, the cruise director seemed a bit odd and some of his jokes seemed tasteless.  

Had a wonderful massage therapist (Nun) who was fabulous.  Usually the Canyon Ranch Spa is very good and it was really great on this cruise.

This is 5th Celebrity cruise in 18 months, and the cutting corners seems apparent, especially in the MDR.  It was a nice cruise, but would have been much better if the tender ports were longer time to be off-ship and if the dining room would bring up the food and service qualities.

Tahiti/Sydney, Australia cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Loved the ship and the service.  Always clean.  Very comfortable ship and easy to get around. 

Constant sales pitch to purchase drink and fine dining packages was very annoying.  

Entertainment was good but not great.  

Price of photos was rediculously high. 

Enjoyed every port of call. 

Would definately repeat same cruise.

The cruise was very good, food was very good, service was excellent and so was the entertainment. The cabin was clean and in good orde . However, the ship is starting to show signs of age and some wear and tear.  But on the whole it did not deter from enjoying the 10 days voyage.

The food was terrific and the service was outstanding. The excursions were fair. I was impressed that Celebrity made a great effort to accommodate my gluten free requirements. We will definitely sail with Celebrity again.

Not too happy with the Celebrity Cruise Line

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I didn't feel it was worth the price we paid for the cruise.  There was also a lot of trying to up sell the beverage packages, excursions, restaurants on the ship, etc.

Our room #8226 on the 4th day, our carpet was VERY wet from a leak from the room next door.  On the 5th day it was SMELLING horrible.  When I brought it to our cabin steward, he said they would sprinkle carpet freshener on the carpet and it would be ok.  I told him that I would be asking for a different room and he said that there were no more rooms, we would have to stay.  To say the least, I'm very UNHAPPY with Celebrity Cruise and WOULD NOT sail with them again.

Alaska

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

the places visited and the history was so interesting and some fantastic scenery.

The food on board could be improved. The price of drinks was way over and our package didn't cover drinks that could be purchased at home for much less.

The ship was was great, the rooms were great and all the staff were great.

First time cruise to Alaska

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The food and score excursions were the best. Diesmbarkation was simply a nightmare. No one especially these elderly travelers should have to wait 2 hours in the line to get a taxi when literally the waterfront in BC was already downtown close to the train which took you directly to the airport and where you could have gone to hail another type of cab.

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.

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

On embarkation day try Bistro on 5 for lunch. Yes it is $7.50 a person extra, but it is not busy and there is table service to boot. Try the Cowboy Crepe.
