Solstice slightly off colour by gwebsterg

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

6th celebrity cruise. They are penny pinching, no daily news digests printed for guests. No speciality restaurants for suite guests other than excellent luminae. have to ask for fruit in suites. Cannot use beverage package for room service drinks. only 1 device allowed on internet package. generally felt crew arrogant, not as friendly as Constellation. Still had very good cruise/holiday.

Had a great time on Solstice by margaret7400269

Would definitely check out Celebrity cruise destinations before others. Have to add that the Art Auctions were excellent and all concerned in running and organizing them were amazing, rate them 10 + also our cabin steward was first class.

Cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii by Bruin76

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Cruise was great. Five leisurely sea days, followed by four port days. Excursions were very good. Aqua class was greatly appreciated, which included Persian Garden (thermal suite), private Restaurant Blu and upgraded showers. Daily hor doerves and tea delivery was not necessary since the food options were plentiful.

Additional review of Vancouver to Hawaii cruise by MineName

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I took this survey yesterday, but I forgot to mention one very important thing, smoking areas. Our cabin was on the seventh deck and the smoking was on deck 5, just below us. Sometimes the smoke rising up to our cabin was so bad that we had to close our balcony door. Also, one corner of the pool area was reserved for smoking. It would be so thick when walking through there that we avoided that corner. The third was on the top deck bar in the rear. One side was for smoking and the other was non-smoking. Again, the smoke from the smoking area would drift over to the non-smoking area and we would have to leave. We noticed also when this happened that the non-smoking area had no one there. We realize that smokers need a place to smoke, but many times in interferes with non-smokers.

Great Trans Pacific cruise Vancouver to Hawaii by howardapage

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Smooth sailing once we got away from Vancouver. I like to spend time relaxing in the Solarium and there were always lounges available. We like to relax in the spas, but most people like the bubbles on and ignored us and just turned the bubbles on when they got in. Many times, they would leave a few minutes after getting into the spa. There is no way of turning off the bubbles once they have been activated and they bubble for about 15 minutes. Very irritating! Many places have a timer for the bubbles that can be turned off at any time. We have had this same complaint on other cruises with Celebrity. The gym is very good, lots of good equipment. The morning talks about the Volcano, Hawaii and Coral Reefs were excellent. Outstanding and interesting presentations and deliveries! The talks in the Central Theater were more of a sales pitch. Where to buy stuff. Not interested and did not stay long for the presentation. Celebrity is one of our favorite cruise lines and we will probably cruise with you another time. Even though you are affiliated with Royal Caribbean, we were not that impressed with Jewel of the Seas. However, you are also affiliated with Azamara and we really like that ship. We even have a cruise booked with them December 2018. We had taken your ship, the Solstice, to Alaska one week before this cruise.

Hawaii from British Columbia by Kurt646

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It was a good cruise. The Solstice singers and dancers were fantastic and should have performed more. Cabin steward was great, bartenders excellent, servers attentive and everything was very clean. Tendering was awful taking 2-3 hours to get everyone ashore. Ports were typical, security was professional and Passenger Services people we professional and helpful. A good sold 4 stars.

Great trip! Terrific ports! by alamode35

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Great itinerary! Astoria, Oregon surprised us because it was so interesting. We chose sites to see on our own. We would have liked a few more hours in San Francisco on our 2nd day there because we felt rushed. We went to Sonoma on our own the 1st day, had lunch in a lovely garden cafe, and walked over to Sebastiani Winery for a wine tasting. We took a ferry to Sausalito on the 2nd day and would have liked to spend more time there. Check the ferry schedule on line before you go to Sausalito. It probably would have been better to take an Uber from the ship because the shuttle to the ferry never came and we wasted time waiting for it. We took Celebrity’s excursion to Butchart Gardens in Victoria and it was beautiful, and the guide was very interesting. After we disembarked in Vancouver, we stayed at the Century Plaza for 2 days and did the dual pass Hop On, Hop Off Bus. Vancouver is a beautiful city and we saw a lot.

The Solstice is a very nice ship and we loved the crew, especially our cabin attendant (Imade) and our dining room team of Wid, Tami and Josep.

We had a very enjoyable experience on the Solstice. The crew and ship were top notch. My only dislike was concierge class. It was a complete joke. Don’t waste your money on this upgrade

Love Celebrity Cruises by kjchen44

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were in Aqua Class this time. I loved dining at Blu. We really did not take advantage of any of the other amenties --such as spa usage. The rooms are not any different except you are provided a robe, slippers and some travel chotskies. We had the worst stateroom attendant ever. Which was the only disappointment on the cruise. Our stateroom on most days was not made up until almost noon. I never saw in the hallway--except the last morning at 7am he was outside our door. Of course needing to turn the room over. I sensed he didn't like his job or was homesick. But other than him, we had a great cruise and I would cruise Celebrity again in a heartbeat. I like their ships, the food and the service.

Unforgettable Alaskan Experience! by AndyG2113

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Really amazing experience. The highlight was the Alaskan Wilderness, but the onboard experience was nice as well. This being our first cruise I have nothing to compare it to, but several people were unimpressed with the onboard experience. Bring a few cases of your own bottled water to avoid criminal upcharges.
