Review SummaryTook a 10 day Mediterranean Cruise on the Celebrity Solstice. Wow-what a ship. It was like being in an exclusive resort. This was our 7th cruise and first on Celebrity. This ship had a swimming pool for adults only and the lounge chairs all had these thick cushions plus there were hanging swing chairs and lounge couches great to use and much more comfortable than any other cruise ship we have been on. The entertainment was excellent and so were the shore excursions. Seeing all those wonderful old places was so fastinating. Tour guides all did a great job as well. One of the most unique areas was the "lawn". Actual grass area on the upper deck were you could play yard games. Great feature and it really made you feel like you were not on a ship. I used the internet cafe and was able to keep in touch with our children that were back in the states. All in all this was one gorgeous ship and we had a marvelous time with this cruise.
