12 Night New Zealand (Auckland To Sydney)
Sail Date: December 16, 2015
Ship: Celebrity Solstice
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9231

All in all it was a good cruise.  Enjoyed the breathtaking views of New Zealand especially cruising through the sounds.  It met my expectations.

The Celebrity Solstice is a lovely clean ship. Lots of activities and entertainment aboard. 

Ending the trip in Sydney was fantastic.  It was so wonderful to open the curtain an see the Sydney Opera House up close and in person.  Always thought the roof or sails were white when they are actually beige.

Sydney is a lovely walkable city but expensive.

Looking forward to visiting Australia again, if not on a cruise definitely an on land trip to view more of the country.

Even though the flight and traveling was long, I highly recommend this itinerary.

Happy Cruiser

The shows in the theater were ok. The band played too loud.

Could have provided more comfortable sitting, curtain didn't close properly, a dresser drawer didn't close right and the trim on the closet was loose. Other than that the room was spacious and clean.

Ship Tip

The buffet dining deck 14 is well designed, no long waiting lines. Sitting relatively easy to find. Nice variety of food.
