Sea Days by rjcrowley

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A successful cruise. Enjoyed the warmth of Hawaii weather and the 5 sea days to Vancouver. Met several nice people during the voyage. Always surprised how much some people pay for a cruise. A couple from Wales had paid 60% more for inferior accommodations.

Better than I had anticipated! by karenrhigley

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was a fabulous cruise! Overall we had a great experience. The staff was wonderful. As always we quickly found favorite staff members. The entertainment staff was the best we've ever had! Very pleased! Icecream lady ironically not pleasant. Maybe that's to discourage one from gaining weight and being frightened to come back for more. Ship was beautiful and clean. One of my favorite ships so far. 5 days at sea could have been bad but was pleasant. Overall a great trip!

Have Second thoughts by billks2013

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Most of the crew needs customer service training, not worth buying the premium beverage package

Wonderful Hawaii to Vancouver Cruise by inwechter26

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was very good overall. We had a very good time. Cabins were very clean. Services was excellent. Entertainment and dining choices in the main dining room were not as good as prior Celebrity cruises we have been on.

Splendid scenery, mediocre weather by jcdolphin

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Unlike Royal Caribbean that has the adult only and super fun Quest game , this ship doesn’t do that. The 3 tenors show, Forza, was great along with the Cirque like acrobat show but most of the other shows were lackluster. The lobster and most lamb dishes in the dining room were delicious but many other food items weren’t that good. Pizza in the buffet was terrible. Apple pie in dining room was horrible as well as the pitiful cannoli desert.

Great experience by mmfair

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The staff was wonderful, our cabin person, WayIn, was super helpful Our table 440 had an amazing wait staff However I felt that everything was designed to get more money, the charge for the non alcoholic drink card should be per couple, it was truly not worth it. There were very little things to participate in unless you were a drinker. Only 2games of bingo and that too was overpriced. I think when we spend that much money for a cruise then we should not be nickeled and dimed the whole trip. I can say that this is the best way to see New Zealand

Solstice slightly off colour by gwebsterg

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.

Exciting, Amazing, Brilliant, Thrilling and Spectacular by beaujel15

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Excellent staff; but most amazing: meeting 900 Aussies and a few KIWI's; laughed, made new friends for life. To Emily, Will, the Martini Bar Staff: extraordinary; Mr. Richard Spacey, our cruise director was a born comedian and skilled dancer but a so so Volleyball player. Unforgettable cuisine and staff. Amazing entertainers.

Had a great time on Solstice by margaret7400269

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Great Trans Pacific cruise Vancouver to Hawaii by howardapage

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

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.

Cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii by Bruin76

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

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.

Pacific Northwest by DaveNNh

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.

Great trip! Terrific ports! by alamode35

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.
