This was our first cruise to Alaska after a number of Caribbean, Bahamas, Med, etc . This has been on our bucket list for quite some time so we finally went for it! We booked this about a year ago, and maybe 60 days prior to the sailing ... Read more

This cruise could not have been better. I know the cruise line had nothing to do with the weather but we had sun shine and beautiful views the whole trip. The staff were as accommodating as they would be pleasant willing to do anything ... Read more

We originally booked the Hawaii to Vancouver trip, but then decided we didn't want the flight to Hawaii and then home from Vancouver. So we switched to this cruise, so we could fly round trip to Seattle. We went in a day early, stayed at ... Read more

Just got back from my 7th cruise; 1st with Celebrity and first to Alaska. Starting off, I, 33, took my parents, 68 and 70, on this cruise to fulfill a dream they've had for 30+ years. They often talked about sailing to Alaska, but ... Read more

The Solstice was a great ship to Alaska, food, service, entertainment,ports and staff. Unfortunately the boarding process in. Vancouver was terrible. We were lucky, it took us 2 1/2 hours of standing on lines, others took up t four hours. ... Read more

We've cruised over 50 times across different lines and twice previously on the Solstice. This time around certainly did not disappoint. Embarkation was a bit chaotic as there were three ships in port at Canada Place in Vancouver. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our travel agent said it was one of the best. So we thought we were really going to enjoy this cruise if it is going to be better than Norwegian, Princess and Royal Caribbean! Well very disappointed from Day ... Read more

This was our seventh Alaska Cruise, second on Celebrity. We chose this cruise for a variety of reasons.. 9 nights instead of the usual 7; it visited the Hubbard Glacier and Sitka, where we had never been before; and it coincided with ... Read more

We wanted a high quality experience with good amenities and service. Reviews on Celebrity indicated that this was an excellent choice for an Alaskan cruise. Our cruise on the Solstice left from Vancouver May 17,2017 and returned to ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the excellent food and the itinerary was perfect. I would have rated 5 stars, but I did have a couple of annoyances, minor, but still. First the many positives: Excellent room steward, and we found all the crew ... Read more

My husband, two adult daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed this 10 day cruise once we got on! We received text, email, and phone messages from Celebrity warning of crowds at pier in Vancouver and the lines were terrible. We thought food ... Read more

The itinerary was great, service was fantastic, with so many of the staff that we could name that went the extra mile. One waiter was Bobby, although there were many others. The ship, although the largest we have siled on did not appear ... Read more

We love Hawaii and wanted to do a cruise around the islands, and we thought it would be good to cruise to Vancouver to have a longer cruise and be back close to home. We picked the Solstice because we love the Hot Glass Show they have on ... Read more

The captain of the Solstice made this journey very memorable. He was very personable, and approachable. He genuinely wanted to do what he could to ensure the passengers had a good time. He did a 360 as we passed the lava flows on Kona ... Read more

We have booked Aqua Class cabins since introduced on the Solstice. Check in was easy, enjoyable (with happy checkers) and fast. Then check in process took maybe a total of 10 minutes. The embarkation was handled very poorly. A woman ... Read more

We chose this cruise after seeing an advert in the UK DMail in late 2015 and just fancied the itinerary. I thought, 'looks interesting, like those stop-offs, I wonder if I can get it for less . . .' After some investigation and maths I ... Read more

My wife & I chose Celebrity Solstice for a 18-day Tahitian cruise to Hawaii, as my wife's birthday coincided with the cruise being at Bora Bora on that day. Generally speaking, the cruise was very enjoyable and strongly recommended ... Read more

We chose the Celebrity Solstice because it was supposed to be a 5 star experience travelling to great destinations like New Zealand French Polynesia and then on to Hawaii. 17 days in all. This is exactly what we got. This was not our ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on Solstice, but our 9th with Solstice Class ships, which is always our favorite. There are no water slides, wall climbing, or belly flop competetions so if this is what you enjoy, don't pick Celebrity! This is also ... Read more
