We have been on 2 other cruises both through Royal Caribbean which we loved and Celebrity Solstice did not disappoint. First, let me say it's all about expectations when taking a cruise. Your on vacation and it's going to be as enjoyable as we make it. As far as overall ship experience, Celebrity has accomplished providing a more modern, glamorous setting. The activities are endless and appeal to every interest. Glass blowing, wine/culinary classes, Cirque-style show, comedy club, etc. Rooms with balcony have adequate space for 2 people to move around. Rooms kept clean and the attendants are always willing to please. All the food is good, but dining and specialty are notches above and rightfully so. Based upon other reviews we did book 1 night at Murano (French) because many had raved about the lobster. And they were right!!! It was awesome, although, the lobster in the main dining wasn't too shabby either. Just a different preparation. My husband had rack of lamb and it was fabulous also.
We did not book any excursions through the ship..

Ship Tip

Celebrity did not have Miller Lite as advertised in the basic drink package. May be a west coast thing or promoting local breweries, but Crown is included in this price point.
Try the gelato at the café for a snack

I'm on the fence about this one because the ship is in port in the evening. But we did Buchart Gardens and it's fantastic
