Celebrity Solstice
14 Night New Zealand (Sydney To Auckland)
Sail Date: January 20, 2014
Ship: Celebrity Solstice
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6138
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

While the Solstice is a wonderful ship, in many ways it is not as pleasant as some of Celebrity's smaller ships - notably the Millenium and the Summit. The ship was clean both in the public areas and in our cabin. Staff was excellent about getting entrants into the buffet to use the hand solution. We really appreciated that. However, the constant playing of music in the buffet area was not pleasant. Both my sife and I found this continuous noise to be irritating. Changing the selection of music to something a bit less POP might help. The Solstice doesn't have the thelassotherapy pool that some of Celebrity's other ships have. We missed this amenity and found the enclosed solarium pool and both hot tubs to be too cool. The solarium itself was very serene and the attendants in that area were excellent.

If you're an adult seeking solace, spend some time in the Solarium.

The trans alpine train ride is not worth the cost.

Take the walk around Mt Mauranganui. It is spectacular.
