Rated the best large ship for a reason.... it is! We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, food, activities and excursions. The ports were all fabulous other than the port of Naples....however we were book on a shore excursion to Sorrento which picked up from this port and was wonderful. I see the cruise line is making some port changes coming up and includes Bari Italy, which I would have enjoyed seeing as my son in laws family originated from this city. Celebrity Solstice is a gem. The staff so welcoming and accommidating, the food, great quality and the excursions really a good value and out of the way villas arranged to show us their culture, olive oil and wine making production. Montenegro, and Croatia are beautiful as are Italy and France. I would highly recommend. We celebrated our 32 on the cruise and so enjoyed the entire adventure!

Pros: The food, staff, accommodations, entertainment and shore excursion packages!

Cons: Naples

Naples, Italy
This is not a pretty port and the crime rate can be high there also.... however we went on to the shore excursion of Sorrento which is beautiful.

Tour to winery at a villa in Tuscania and beautiful views...
