Great holiday - well looked after by all staff and crew.
All great from start to finish.
Excellent cruise and ports of call, beautiful scenery. Thoroughly enjoyed pre cruise stay in lovely Vancouver. Did not enjoy post cruise stay in Seattle, rooms in Grand Hyatt hotel very good but downtown Seattle has serious issues, we did not venture out at night, and would not stop there again.
Lovely cruise with great ports!
Ship excellent and well managed. Captain Tassos charasmatic and very entertaining. Cruise to Alaska first class with great ports of call. Would certainly recommend.
Went on this fabulous cruise to New Zealand and Australia with my husband and friends as a celebration for my retirement, 60th birthday and Ruby wedding anniversary. As ever, with Celebrity, the staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy. The food was great and the buffet always had a huge and varied selection on offer. The entertainment was excellent both in the theatre and around the ship. Ports of call were all fabulous and our excellent captain ensured we were able to visit each scheduled stop. Celebrity is my favourite cruise line and this was no disappointment We have booked with Iglu cruises on several occasions and they have always been helpful do efficient. On this occasion we added a number of additional destinations at the start and end of the cruise. Our Iglu advisors were able to book excellent hotels and organise our flights and transfers for us. All these worked out fantastically. However, whilst trying to communicate with Iglu to organise our flights I found them difficult to contact. I could not get through on the phone for a number of days as they had an answer phone message saying they could not take calls as they were extremely busy. I was concerned, even checked to see if they had gone out of business. Once we were able to get through again on the phone our advisor ensured the whole package was put together and our holiday of a lifetime was brilliant.
Very good holiday overall, hotels at Auckland & Sydney could have been better but in truth for all the time spent in them, they were adequate. Embarkation at Auckland was easy, the best we’ve had. Solstice is showing a few understandable signs of her age but overall is excellent. Celebrity do the whole cruise experience pretty well. Definitely a cruise to do, saw lots & met lots of different & interesting folks.
Overall it was excellent. BUT It was not pleasant being hassled immediately on boarding to upgrade meals, buy drink packages etc. This was annoying particularly after undergoing the stressful checking in/security procedure.
Sailed from Perth to Auckland - a wonderful cruise. Sailing into Sydney was something to tick off the bucket list, and even the low cloud and mist didn’t spoil it. The ports were, with only one exception, Esperance, really good. Enetertainment was of a high standard, especially the Production crew and the Solstice orchestra, with the added bonus of an outstanding Cruise Director, who kept us all entertained. The Entertainments team, William and Jenna, were also brilliant. Food was good, and, in Murano’s, exceptionally good. The Solstice is a lovely ship, well kept and clean. Our stateroom was looked after really well by our steward, Antonio. Staff are lovely, and seem to really want you to have a good time. We had booked a few tours through Celebrity, and although possibly a bit pricey, were extremely well organised. We had a great time, on board the beautiful Celebrity Solstice.
23 March 2019 returned from New Zealand starting our cruise from Perth. Our ship celebrity solstice cabin 1211 our cabin steward looked after very well. Everything we asked him for was given. We chose concierge class and enjoyed the few benefits. The cabin interior looked dated and was in need of modernising. Food was fantastic, entertainment good. Thank you Lewis and all your team for keeping us entertained. Good job. Our only niggles were the pricey drinks package and daily $15 per person gratuity charges for 16 nights.
