Our 5th Caribbean cruise
Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
We sailed on the Celebrity Solstice April 11, 2010. This was our 5th Caribbean cruise and best overall (4.4 out of possible 5) aside from the weather which was surprisingly partially cloudy each day. The Solstice ship design, food, service, and after dinner shows were excellent. It was a great cruise that ended far too soon, perhaps next time we will plan to sail for 10-14 days. If Celebrity remains as competitive as this cruise was priced, then we will certainly be repeat customers. Our standard balcony stateroom 6147, was very nice including the improved bathroom area, rounded bed corners, with free flat panel TV with great choice of free movies and music available. Shows were always good and the entertainment director (MC ? John) was the very best one we have seen. Standard dining was excellent, however they could improve upon availability of alternate dinning option when needed. Customer relations was polite and excellent; example when we had a question about return item credit - it was handled very quickly, and they also patiently resolved a cigar smoking issue with a passenger who?s balcony room was nearby. Ports of call: Labadee (was an excellent private surprise), St. Martin and Tortola have many very nice beaches. The Solstice band and stage performers were great. However, I would have preferred more authentic young rock, calypso, reggae style musicians would have been used in lounge and pool areas.
