Incredible Cruise on Celebrity Solstice

Sail Date: November 30, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My partner and I have taken many cruises on other lines, but wanted to try Celebrity. We were very impressed with the Solstice and its crew. Everything was top notch.

Pros: Ship, Crew, Food, Martini Bar

Cons: Ports, Median Age was Too Old

Recommends Celebrity Solstice? Yes!

Ship Quality
We were on the 2nd Sailing!
Food and Dining
Food in the main dining and specialty restaurants was excellent - EXCEPT SILK HARVEST. What a disappointment. The food was not good - grizzle in the chicken and the dishes did not get cooked at hot enough temperatures. The service was very odd - too many people doing the same things.

Tuscan Grille and Murano - were however OVER THE TOP! These two had great management, staff and awesome food!
Cabin / Stateroom
The bathrooms were awesome - extra large shower with glass doors.

The closet was SMALL. They had to shrink something and they did here. It was small and awkard to work out of.
Service and Staff
From top to bottom this is the best crew to date.
Celebrity Solstice Theater events were very good. All of the rest of the activities were standard cruise ship fair.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
The highlight of ports - shopping, beaches and scenery. We really enjoyed this port.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Nothing special - we got off and did a 3 minute walking loop. No great restaurants. This also should be a very brief stop.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
San Juan should never be a port. It should only be an embarkation point.
