Summary:  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.

Summary:  Good food, plenty of variety and excellent service. Very clean public areas especially the toilets. Plenty of bars and relaxation areas, even on sea days there were plenty of places to sit. On the negative side the entertainment wasn't up to the usual standard with shows being of a more amateur quality. Our balcony cabin was quite worn and furnishings being quite 'tatty', the bedding and towels were very worn and the bath robe was awful. Although we had prepaid gratuities, apparently this only applied to our drinks package and we were made to pay an unexpected bill at the end of our cruise. Apart from these gripes, the ports and cruise in general were very good, especially the staff. We've booked another cruise with celebrity next year .

Summary:  My wife and I have just returned from Australian/New Zealand cruise. We traveled on the Solstice. This was a great experience The ship and crew where first class Food was also first class. We where in cabin 7200 This was looked after by cabin steward Anselmo and Assist cabin steward Arfa. First class service from both Meals where taken in the main restaurant on table 214 The waiter for this was Savio and Assit waiter was Yucel. Again first class service from both nothing was to much trouble for them this made our meals and evening a great dining experience. Also wine waiter Yesi gave great service I would rate all staff 10 out of 10

Summary:  Had a good time cruising round Australia for the first time from Perth to Sydney visited some great places. Brisbane rained constantly! We loved meeting people, taking part in the quizzes and the food. There was little entertainment such as the shows were boring, films were on too late, port talks were boring and tours weren't interesting. We were going back to the ship from Bali they were helping people out of the tender, they helped a woman out and the waves rocked the tender, the woman almost fell out the sailors just about grabbed her but it should of been reported.

Summary:  We have just returned from the Austraila/NewZealand cruise.The ship looked so impressive and spectacular waiting for us in Sydney harbour right next to the bridge and Opera House. Ship is spotless, so much so that the constant cleaning and hoovering began to get on our nerves as the hoover wires became a hazard when walking about. There are no kettles or facilities to make a drink in your cabin, but a kettle was delivered when we asked for one.Staff are very friendly and helpful, although the young girls making the toast in the morning were not as polite or friendly. They also had no idea how to make toast! The drinks packages are expensive and someone was always trying to sell you something which became annoying. These are just some of the little things that may be of interest to you. On the whole it was a fantastic cruise and would recommend it. Going through Milford sound is absolutely amazing and spectacular.

Summary:  In May 2012 I was lucky enough to go on the Celebrity Solstice. Having been on quiet a lot of cruises, this was by far one of the most enjoyable. The service was amazing and staff were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble, and the food was 5 star. I would not hesitate booking to go on this ship, or any of the Celebrity ships, for my next holiday.

Summary:  The only flaw in our cruise was the checking in at Barcelona on the 8th September. It was terrible! When we arrived at the port the queues were all around the building. Everyone was irritated to say the least. I heard three different explanations along the way: computers going down; the ship being fumigated due to a breakout on the cruise immediately before us and lastly that the port had 5 cruises checking in at the same time and not enough port staff on duty!! Whatever the excuse they need to sort it out because it just is not good enough, the whole checking in process took 4 hours from when we arrived at the port to when we boarded the ship! So that's the negative out of the way...! We absolutely loved the Celebrity Solstice. We took the classic drinks package because we like to have a glass of wine at lunch and a cocktail or two during the day along with some drinks at night. For us it was worth it because the drinks on board are between $US5.00-8.50 for the basic beer, wine and shorts with mixers. However if you're not bothered about drinking alcohol on board then soft drinks, tea, coffee, water are all available in the Ocean View Restaurant and by the pool to help yourself throughout the day. Celebrity have recently had some negative publicity about staffing on their ships but I have to say that all the staff we talked to were very happy and helpful and felt privileged to be working for Celebrity. It is known in the industry that cruise ship pay is low and staff rely on tips to make up their wages but that has always been the way and is the same on all cruise ships. We would not hesitate to recommend Celebrity and the Solstice to anyone thinking of booking. We had a fantastic time. The Entertainment team were outstanding and there was always something going on. If you wanted to have a quiet time there were plenty of places to do that too. The Library is amazing on two decks and a really nice place to get away from everything if you feel the need. I hope this review helps whoever reads this in making a decision...

Summary:  Excellent ship, well suited for a young couple like ourselves (under 30). There was lots to do onboard and the itinerary was good. The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way on many occasions. Superb food in the main restaurant - we didn't feel it was necessary to eat in the specialty restaurants. As this was only our second cruise, we would have found it useful to have more info beforehand i.e. confirmation of the onboard currency (Dollars), plugs (European) and dress code (mostly Smart Casual). Would definitely recommend and cruise with Celebrity again.

Summary:  My sister and I sailed on the Celebrity Solstice on 11th October, 2011 on a 12 night Mediterranean Greek Isles Cruise. We sailed out of Barcelona and our ports of call included Rome (Civitavecchia), Naples, Athens (Piraues), Mykanos, Ephesus (Kusadasi), Santorini and Valletta. We had booked a Concierge C1 Cabin at the aft of the ship and from our balcony we enjoyed the most marvellous sunset as we left Barcelona, sipping our complimentary sparkling wine and enjoying our canapes. Our cabin could not be faulted and we had adequate storage space for our belongings. The bathroom was excellent with a powerful shower and complimentary bath robes. The towels and sheets were of an excellent quality. On our first night we dined in the specialist restaurant MURANO'S and had a superb meal, much of which was finished in its preparation at the table. We had excellent attention from all of the restaurant staff and would highly recommend this dining experience. The main dining room served a wide variety of food with some popular dishes available every evening. We chose the Select Dining option and, despite the fact that the ship was full, we never had to wait long for a table. The breakfast and lunch time buffets in The Oceanview were of a very high quality. There was certainly something for everyone. I particularly enjoyed the stir fry dishes prepared from my selection of ingredients, and the delicious ice creams. We had booked all of our excursions in advance, taking advantage of small group tours, which we prefer. We made some good friends this way! The shows in the evening were very entertaining and enjoyable, as too, were the cookery demonstrations during the day and the Hot Glass Show. One of the highlights for my sister was when she was chosen as the assistant chef to the ship's chef in a Celebrity Cooking Competition held in the theatre. We had a wonderful holiday and visited some interesting places, some for the first time. Our favourite was the beautiful island of Santorini seen at its best in lovely sunshine. The heavy rain in Naples and Athens was perhaps the only disappointing aspect of the holiday because everything else was perfect. We have sailed to Alaska with Celebrity before and Celebrity will be our first choice for any future cruises. Thank you to Iglu Cruise for offering us a fantastic rate for a top holiday!

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
