Great trip to Alaska

May 24th, 2019

Overall, we loved our cruise. Celebrity was great, although I think next time I might go for Royal Caribbean (part of same company) which is a bit younger crowd and more onbourd activities. It was a beautiful ship with great employees. The ports and things we saw (Dawes Glacier and Inside Passage) were amazing. I am sold on Alaskan cruises and will be back.

The Solstice was a nice ship. I had not cruised with Celebrity before, so I tried to make mental notes as the trip went on. I thought the crew worked very hard to keep the ship in great shape, and they constantly worked to make sure each guest was taken care of. I know the ship is due to be refurbed soon, but it was in good shape and always clean. The only small criticism I have is just that the thermal suite wasn’t really worth what they charge for it. NCL has spoiled me with their thermal experience. :)

Great Experience on Celebrity Cruise

May 20th, 2019

The cruise experience was great. To be honest, there isn't much to do on the cruise for younger people like me. The other cruise I've been onto had rock climbing, big basketball/soccer court, lots of pools, etc. However, I do like the customer service onboard.

Wonderful Hawaiian cruise

May 19th, 2019

We had a fantastic cruise, food was good, ports were great with lots of time for activities. Shows were great, martini bar was the best. We felt the cruise was really geared to older people, being we are 39 and 41 we didn't know a lot of the music and found it hard to find activities we were interested in. The ship never felt overcrowded (except in the buffet) which resulted in a nice relaxing vacation. I didn't really enjoy all the time changes during the sea days to get back to Vancouver time either.

This was my first cruise so keep that in mind when reading this review. I have nothing else to compare it to. Embarkation from Vancouver was all over the place, 3 ships leaving at same time, so bit of a mess overall. I was really excited about the cruise having heard so many wonderful things. But by the end I couldn't wait to get off. Cabin was small, could hear people next door. Last night had very little sleep as everyone was packing and banging around. The first day got sick of staff pestering you trying to sell drink packages, specialty dining etc. The whole cruise felt like a money grab. Food in main dining was average. Buffet food was pretty good, but gets busy at lunch time. Disembarkation at ports were good but I just felt like a sheep being herded around. Perhaps I've learnt that cruising just isn't for me.

Sea Days

May 18th, 2019

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.

Wonderful Hawaii to Vancouver Cruise

May 14th, 2019

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.

Have Second thoughts

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

Better than I had anticipated!

May 13th, 2019

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!
