Fantastic time

Sail Date: February 20, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

The ship was clean and the service was incredible. Though Celebrity is not a cruise line that is known as being kid oriented they did an amazing job at keeping our 9 yr old daughter happy and very entertained.

Pros: Service and food delightful

Cons: the excursions did nothing for the cruise

Recommends Celebrity Solstice? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
We had a sky suite facing the back. The only downfall is the outside portion of the oceanview cafe's seating was directly above us so the early morning dinners' would wake us up
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
though the specialty restaurants are extra-they are totally worth it. The quality is that of any top name metro restaurants
Service and Staff
I have never seen a group of people so tireless in our efforts to make us comfortable
Particularly enjoyed the enrichment programs around food and wine
Children's Programs
Our daughter can be very shy and reserved in new situations, but the entire staff really helped draw her out and get her involved. She is already emailing back and forth with several of the other girls she befriended at the Fun Factory!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We took a snorkel/beach excursion- it left at 8:45, which meant it was still pretty cold when we got there. The beach was nice, but we had to leave by 11:30, just as it was finally warm enough. I also got a really nasty cold sore from the snorkel gear- which was just really nasty
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We tried another beach day so went for the beach rendezvous on the french side- we got there and you couldn't see the beach because the rows of the lounge chairs were so tight. Lunch was included which was horrible
San Juan, Puerto Rico
There were no excursions that allowed our daughter to attend. We wondered around a bit, but I didn't feel very inspired by any thing we saw
