Overall the cruise was good, the stay in Honolulu for four day prior to the cruise was really needed for all there is to see and do in Honolulu.

I took two  tours prior to the Celebrity Solstice cruise, the Polynesian Cultural Center and Pearl Harbor Remembered.

Both of these tours was the best and not to be missed and very memorable.

The cruise itself was nice, however three islands in a row after spending four days touring in Honolulu was a bit much, you then had five days at sea with the weather getting colder with not much to do.

The ship itself was a good size, clean but lacking good entertainment and reasonable prices for shopping in their shops.

Spending extra for a room in Concierge class found towels and lush robes frayed and rough.

I would not recommend this ship and would not cruise with her again.



Cabin / Stateroom
Good size, bed not comfortable and pillows flat.
Towels torn and rough.
Room attendant great.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very organized and quick.
Ship Quality
very clean and good size for the 2700 people it holds.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Not much to chose from.
Children's Programs Did not see many children but noticed they were allowed in the main dining which never used to be.
This was the worst cruise yet for entertainment.
Service and Staff
Great staff in every department.
Food and Dining
the food was very limited in variety but presentation was very good.
Honolulu, Oahu
Must stay at least 3-4 days in advance of sailing for all there is to see.
Lahaina, Maui
Shopping here is great .
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Good selection of tours, Historic Kona was a good choice.
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
Very clean city worth seeing if you take a late flight for a city tour.
