Cruising Alaska on Solstice

Sail Date: May 31, 2013

Room Type: Balcony

Celebrity Solstice was overall an incredible first cruise experience. The staff was very personable and greeted guests by name throughout the cruise. Aqua class cabins were treated to Blu, an excellent specialty restaurant, as well as to express embarking and disembarking. The only reason for the 4 rating is due to difficulties in tendering guests off the boat and into port in Juneau causing delays in our excursions. Also, immigration delays in Victoria caused difficulties in managing the large crowd of guests lining up to get off the ship.
Ship Quality
Beautiful ship, great spa,
Food and Dining
Blu Restaurant was a 10!
Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfortable, canapes delivered every afternoon
Service and Staff
Very personable
One show was amazing. The others were ok.
Onboard Activities
The Hot Glass Show was outside in the cold temps and latecomers would just come and stand in front of those seated. Not worth the wait.
Destinations and Excursions
Would have been better if ship's timing was not off due to tendering to port or immigration delays

Seattle is such a beautiful city that deserves several days to explore. Ferry across to the beautiful Bainbridge Island.

Beautiful scenary thoughout the town. Take a city tour for incredible pictures.


Splurge for Aqua class and enjoy the beautiful Persian Room in the spa, Blu Restaurant, and ease embarking and disembarking. Indoor pool areas were a hit with cold weather.
