9 Night West Coast Wine Cruise Northbound (Ensenada To Seattle)
Sail Date: May 06, 2013
Ship: Celebrity Solstice
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship is exquisite. The food in both the main dining room and specialty dining was spectacular,l and the waiters in both were great. Our inside cabin room was surprisingly large (king bed, full couch, and large bathroom with walk in shower). There was lots of storage for belongings. Now the not so good --- port to ship transportation was pathetic. Long lines and hours of waiting. It took over 6 hours to get to the 2 hour destination. Staff on the ship were NOT friendly, Not accommodating, and not concerned if you had an issue. They control the temperature in the cabin. I asked repeatedly to lower the temp but they never did. We had requested a large table top so we we could meet other people, but we were put at table for 2 and they refused to move us. We also were put in different dinging time than our friends; they had 6:30 and we had 8:30. They also refused to allow us to change dining times, yet there were empty seats all over the room at both seatings. The bars and clubs were so beautiful, but the Larwence Welk band sucked and the DJ music was boring as well -- all old fashioned music, The shows were mediocre. Ship was spectacular -- experience was rather dreary. Most disappointed in the staff and boring music/agendas on board.

Waste of time and scary to be there

Nice and plenty to do
JOKE -- it was 40 minutes to get to LA and there was virtually NO transportation available -- very poor planning for seeing anything in LA

Beautiful but nothing to do but shop and there was no provision to get disabled people onto the tenders so they were stuck on the ship
5 out of 5
Close to everything you might want to see

Quaint but boring little town with nothing to do

Excellent - gardens were gorgeous and town was accessible and easy to navigate; plenty to do
5 out of 5
Good if you booked an extra day at end of trip; otherwise nowhere to leave luggage while you see the sights
