Good, not great. by christinelisa2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This was our first cruise on Celebrity. It was our 10th cruise and we thought we'd try it. We had a good time but not a great time. With so many other choices we won't sail with Celebrity again.The ship had its plusses for us, one being the food. We thought the quality was better than other major lines. The ship was a little tired looking, but clean. Stateroom was good size and comfortable. We particularly liked the bathroom layout. Staff generally was not friendly, they seemed either tired or not happy. Of course there were a few exceptions and those staff members stood out. Our room steward was great. While there were many onboard activities, most didnt appeal to us. The lecturers were very good. There were no exercise classes which I enjoy. I didn't want to pay 17.50 plus 18% added gratuity for a class! This brings me to my next point which was a major negative. From start to finish we were inundatedated by pushy staff members wanting to sell us something. It was obnoxious. We felt like second class citizens with just a regular class stateroom and no drink package. And everything on the ship is outrageously expensive. A cup of regular coffee is 6.00 (when not in dining venues.) All on all, I was told Celebrity was a cut above, but I found the opposite. We are going back to Princess or Royal Caribbean

Disappointed in level of guest service by MMurrah

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Guest Services desk is hopeless on every level, from start of cruise to finish. Wifi was horrible, both packages! You pay for streaming but it’s impossible. Dining room staff were exceptional. Room steward was the best ever! But the guest services staff ruined the entire cruise for us. We will never sail Celebrity Solstice again. That’s too important a part of the cruise experience to have to deal with unprofessional and untrained staff who couldn’t care less about guests.

Beautiful scenery.. and that's about it. by brthompson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

We loved the cruise, just not the cruise line. Service really suffered, and the food was poor to middling at best. The standout service from a handful of employees and the scenery salvaged the trip.

Best cruise ever! by drquincy99

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

My Celebrity Solstice cruise to Alaska was one of the best trips I have ever taken. The staff were professional and friendly. The food was terrific! Having the naturalist, Brent Nixon, on board was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed his presentations. I definitely would Sail on Celebrity again.

Alaska cruise 2019 by bptharrisclovis

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Sit down dinner was screwed up and got to eat there only a couple of times and crew didn’t work to fix for us. Staff was disorganized and the cruise line seems to want a different clientele than previous cruises. Won’t do celebrity again.

Alaska Glacier Cruise by jtat0911

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

I would have to call this trip a "once in a lifetime" type of trip even though I know I will be back. Everyone should see Alaska if they can at least once. The glaciers are melting rapidly, so if you want to see them, better hurry!

Big views and big crowds by jjstric

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Glad I did it and probably will not do it again. This is only my personal experience and may or may not be typical in every situation. Some things may be out of the control of the cruise line, ports, or there may have been extenuating circumstances. It does not matter as this is a review of how I felt about my experiences.

Spectacular Inside Passage Adventure by heybill

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

We originally booked this cruise as two couples. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law fell ill in the last 1 to 2 weeks before our departure; they had to cancel and we are hopeful the travel insurance offered through will pay them back for the cost of the cruise/stateroom. Aside from that, my wife and I very much enjoyed the beauty of Alaska and the adventurous excursions that added to our memorable experience!

Alaska cruise that impressed with its raw beauty! by erobertson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

We really enjoyed the raw beauty of the Alaska cruise. I would go again tomorrow! The only change I will make in the future will be NOT using to book cruises. In my opinion they mislead you on rebates. Even when you ask specifically about the offers, they don't give you a straight answer. The website does little to clear up the offers but whatever you think you are getting it will be less. The above was not and is not a reflection on Samantha who assisted us on our booking. I found her to be experienced, friendly and forthcoming. The others who I talked to .....not so much.

Loved our cruise on the Solstice to Alaska by CathyRinCA

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Enjoyed our cruise as first time on Celebrity line.. service was top notch. Buffet could have been better, so instead we at in the main dining... but to get the crab we wanted we ate in speciality dining (and paid more), unfortunately the service wasn’t as good as main dining room. The Captain was wonderful, even the staff loved him. The only other noticeable problem was with the bars not being fully stocked.. not sure what the problem was.

Great Ship - Great Cruise by DebbieZski

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

It's a very relaxing cruise since you only really stopping in 3 towns (didn't count Victoria because it was such a short stop). Could have used a little better entertainment at night but overall, it was a great cruise. I think it's really more geared for adults than kids.

Enjoyable Alaskan Cruise by roxybabe78

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

All in all was a beautiful cruise. Just the views of the land from the ship and off the ship was worth it. Pictures do not do the scenery justice at all. I felt so small against the majestic snow-capped mountains. The weather was beautiful at all times for our cruise. The ship was good overall. Entertainment great, food was okay to good. We may be the outliers but my husband and I are active and not huge eaters and alcohol drinkers, so being at sea for 4 days may not be the best option for us in the future. But again, we may be the exception, lots of people LOVE cruising and I would still recommend it! I miss it already!

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE...but :) by JesusGuillen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Celebrity Solstice / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

It was a wonderful experience, but I know,I keep saying, in comparison of the SOLSTICE first trip to Alaska a few years ago, it was less classier, people on bathrobe? wow, pijamas? NO, please don't. It is obvious, that now is a lot more commercial in many ways, and that keeps my options open for a different cruise next time. I'm not a rich person, but I decided to come back to Solstice ad pay the rate of it, because of the Classy experience, but at the same time comfortable enough to be me. It is a decision of management, to decide who is your customer....LOVE for now.
