Room Type: Balcony

Start to finish, poor experience. Had to wait over an hour to board in terminal. No life to ship. Elevator music at poolside. Had 45 min / day single man with steel drum playing with taped back up music! The one live band had blown speakers and sounded horrible. There were 4-6 patrons in nightclub. Lots of motorized wheelchair patrons. Average age was in the 60's. Few children, but poolside games all catered to them. No reggie music at pool and fun. No midnight buffet. Halls were dead after 10pm. Food at buffet closed down except fruit, few pastries and pizza after 9pm. String quartet in courtyard at night. No festival atmosphere. Food was average. When we left the ship it was nauseating. All security folks had masks on as it smelled like human waste and vomit. Not exactly what you need when leaving a ship. I think it was next to the tanker to remove waste etc.. not sure. BUT, for what the cruise line charges and for what I saw, I would NOT recommend this ship to anyone. Skip over Celebrity cruise line.

Pros: room was nice

Cons: no life to ship. cater to older crowd.

Recommends Celebrity Solstice? No.
