Celebrity Solstice

January 2018 - 12 Night New Zealand (Sydney Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Solstice

Good but not Great

We thought going on a Celebrity cruise ship would be a step up from Royal Caribbean as they are sister ships... but we were disappointed :-( The decor was impressive and there were many bars to choose from but only after about 5pm. The very large lounge at the top of the boat was very comfortable and a great place to sit and relax... and although there was a bar in the middle it was rarely open.

Amazing service and the BEST cruise experience ever!

This was the BEST experience ever as far as cruising goes... Our main waiter and assistant waiter were sooo attentive and preempted our needs and wants... they went above and beyond! The food in the main dining room is out of this world and we enjoyed every night at our table for two. Our cabin steward was also amazing and was happy to attend to our needs and wants with a smile! The bar staff were fantastic... actually all the staff were amazing! The ship was the perfect size!

Disappointing for a romantic getaway!

Purchased as a late Valentines Day present to each other we thought a 3 night cruise out of Adelaide would be nice... the woman who sold us the cruise at the Phil Hoffman Travel Expo actually worked for the CMV company and raved about the Astor... we explained it was a romantic getaway and she booked us in... And then when we boarded... we had two single beds that couldn't be converted... one of the beds was lilting so that you felt you were going to roll out of bed at night. The dining room experience was just that, an experience that I wouldn't want to repeat... I felt we were shuttled like cattle to out table and rushed through our meal... and the buffet style restaurant had inadequate seating for the number of guests and you had to be quick to get food or the restaurant would close. All in all I would not go on the Astor again... very disappointing!

Cruise Tips

Noumea, New Caledonia

The french are rude. The port okay for a supermarket trip. Next time we might try an excursion.

Port Vila, Efate, Vanuatu

Duty free alcohol and other shopping always best here! They will charge $5 per person for a bus trip to town or $10 per person by boat... I would recommend both! There’s some nice cafes on the water where you can buy a drink and soak up the atmosphere.

Isle Of Pines (Ile Des Pins), New Caledonia

Take snorkeling gear here! We didn’t go this time but we’ve been here a few times and the snorkeling is fantastic! Aim to go right around the large rock island... on one side it’s very shallow and corally and the other side is deep... lots of fish 🐠 Beautiful!

Mystery Island, Vanuatu

Small island that you can walk around. Lots of trinkets and holiday souvenirs can be purchased here and they do take Australian dollars. Swimming and snorkeling is good here but beware there can be strong currents.

Lifou Isle, New Caledonia

This port was cancelled last minute due to strong winds and tendrs being unable to safely transport passengers.

Radiance of the Seas

Radiance of the Seas

If you like the solarium area for relaxing on a sunbed get there early because they are premium seats which fill fast.

Astor

Astor

If your'e after romance make sure you tell them you actually want to sleep in the same bed! We had an ocean view for a late Valentines Day present to each other only to arrive and be greeted by two single beds that couldn't be moved :-(

Celebrity Solstice

Celebrity Solstice

If you like to have a drink while sitting in a bar with a view... book Royal Caribbean instead... bars open in the middle of the day were far and few between
