Celebrity Solstice

May 2013 - Celebrity Solstice to U.S. - Pacific, Northwest

Great way to see the Pacific Northwest

The trip did not start off well for many as the transport arrangements from San Diego to Ensenada were beyond poorly organized. Some people had to wait up to 4 hours for their bus and some buses were poorly maintained. We had arranged a private driver to take us to Ensenada, but even that was confusing as we were not given clear instructions from Celebrity on where to check in or where to leave our baggage. Once on the ship, we were pleased with our room (as usual) and glad we had booked Aqua as Blu provides a good dining service. We went to the Specialty restaurants a few evenings and they were quite good. We rate the entertainment on Celebriy as "fair" but it was not an issue for us as we usually listen to piano and jazz. This cruise did not provide good transport in ports if you are not on one of their tours. That is a bit frustrating as it is not good to rely only on local "trolley's" which are infrequent. We were on the Reflection in February and felt local transport was better organised and more frequent. Disembarkation was as expected and not as chaotic as some other cruises. All in all, a good holiday with some minor annoyances. We will cruise with Celebrity again, but ask more questions and do more research about local sites before we go.
