7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 27, 2011
Ship: Celebrity Solstice
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
I would recommend the Solstice. The crew does everything that they can to make it a memorable vacation.
The food in the main dinning room is average. Most of the time it is bland and delivered to the table warm not hot. However the specialty restaurants are great and food at morning buffets is plentiful and there is a variety. The morning brunch was very good.
I would not recommend Celebrity for teenagers as specifically the Solstice seems to have an older group of people. I also do not know what the singles scene is like.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
As stated above main dinning room was average in quality and the food was at times bland and only warm when delivered.
Specialty restaurants were very good and reasonable in price. Buffet and special brunch was very good.


5 out of 5
Shows were basic but very well performed.
There were specialty programs such as computer labs, language tutorials, cooking and many others for those with special interests. Speaker programs were very good and the Corning Glass program was very interesting.
Information about the ship from senior officers was great.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All crew went out out of their way to say hello. You did not get the constant question of "do you want a drink" from outdoors staff which was appreciated.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is very clean and the crew is very friendly.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Staterooms were up dated and very well kept. Our room was very large even with a king size bed and a couch. We did not have a balcony but had a beautiful picture window under the bridge in front of the ship. I would not recommend the front or upper decks for those that have problems with motion sickness.

St. Kitts is a nice island but still not ready for large groups. Sailing around the island is relaxing. The "Sugar Train" is nice but after awhile gets tiresome.
5 out of 5
The beaches on both the Dutch and French side. You do not have to go far from the ship to find nice beaches on the Dutch side. Would suggest that you not wonder off of the Tourist Areas.
5 out of 5
The forts, shopping and the Segway Tour of the Old City IS A MUST.
Don't Miss: The Segway Tour

Pros: Was a good slow way to wind down

Cons: St. Kitts needs some upgrades as a port

Recommends Celebrity Solstice? Yes!
