Overview
The Solstice was the first of Celebrity Cruises’ newest and largest class of ships.  Now known as the “Solstice-class”, these beautiful and innovative ships have been so well-received that they led to the “Solsticizing” of the entire Celebrity fleet.  Impressing both travel agents as well as their clients, the Celebrity Solstice won the coveted Travel Weekly 2010 Readers Choice Award as “Best Premium Cruise Ship” two years in a row as well as “Best Cruise Ship” following her inaugural year.

Celebrity Lawn ClubWhat’s so special about the Celebrity Solstice?  To begin with, her size is somewhat unique among premium class ships.  At 122,000 tons, the Solstice offers the spaciousness of a “big ship” but the elegance and intimacy of a smaller ship.  Then, there’s the signature “Lawn Club” which offers guests an opportunity to lounge and play on half an acre of finely manicured grass with trees and shrubs high above the open sea.  Combine this with an exceptional spa, health and fitness center, wide-ranging entertainment, first-rate service and award-winning cuisine and you’ll start to understand why the Celebrity Solstice is consistently a ship of choice for the most discerning cruiser.

Celebrity Cruises DiningFeaturing a beautiful main dining room, four fabulous specialty restaurants and several casual eating venues, guests on the Celebrity Solstice are treated to an abundance of culinary delights on each cruise.  But great meals are only part of the Celebrity premium cruise experience.  Spa lovers can enjoy the ultimate self-indulgence by booking an AquaClass balcony stateroom (195 square feet + 54 square-foot balcony), which, in addition to a multitude of in-room spa-related amenities, provides a personal spa concierge and unlimited access to the Persian Garden.  Other Concierge Class balcony staterooms entitle guests to priority check-in, seating preferences in main dining and specialty restaurants, evening hors d’oeuvres, expanded room service menus and many other nice touches.  But, for those who want even more, there are the Sky Suites (300 square feet + 79 square-foot veranda), Celebrity Suite (394 square feet + 105 square-foot veranda), Royal Suite (590 square feet + 153 square-foot veranda)  and the incredible Penthouse Suite (1,291 square feet + 389 square-foot veranda) featuring a separate living room with dining area, full bar, baby grand piano, surround sound entertainment center with 52” LCD television and a private whirlpool.

Celebrity Cruises StateroomStandard balcony accommodations on the Celebrity Solstice are anything but “standard”.  Featuring floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, a sitting area with sofa and a 32” flat screen television, these staterooms are roomy (194 square feet + 54 square-foot veranda) and comfortable.  Even the lowest-cost standard inside staterooms on the Celebrity Solstice (183 – 200 square feet) provide a level of luxury and comfort that you won’t often find on many other cruise ships.

Along with her “sister ships” (Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Equinox Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Silhouette), the Celebrity Solstice is in a class by herself.

Consumer Review:Celebrity service continues to be wonderful. The Solstice was a beautiful ship, loaded with activities and amenities
Consumer Review:Celebrity Solstice is a wonderful ship! Our balcony stateroom was nicely furnished with great bedding! The rest of the ship was outstanding. Negatives included quality of food in the main dining room and evening entertainment in the showroom.
Consumer Review:I loved Celebrity Soltice. We were in a Aqua Spa room and couldn't have been more convenient to the spa and the solarium pool. We also had our own restaurant called Blu, where you never were worried that you would not be seated. The service on Soltice is excellent and the entertainment is wonderful. There is so much to do on the ship at all times. We found the that the other restaurants were worth the money. We really enjoyed the fitness center and found the whole ship to be very clean and well taken care of. The crew was always smiling and more than willing to help you at all times. We loved the shows. The entertainment on this ship is fabulous. We will definitely go on a cruise with Celebrity again.
Consumer Review:I would recommend Direct Line Cruises to everyone I know. Celebrity is definitely up-scale and elegant. The Solstice is beautiful but so are the other Celebrity ships we've been on. Keep up the good work. We look forward to many more cruises. Thank you all who were responsible for a most memorable cruise. Irene Aberle
Consumer Review:It was an absolutely amazine cruise. One of the nicest ships we have sailed on in all of our cruises. Service was excellent, staff very helpful and friendly. Gary, the cruise director was fun and provided excellent events. This will be a cruise to remember.
Consumer Review:Loved the ship. It was much more than I thought it would be. We were treated with such care in every part of the ship. It was so so special.
Consumer Review:My first cruise experience was excellent. I hope to be able to go on another cruise in the future and will definitely use Direct Line and Celebrity.
Consumer Review:The Celebrity Solstice was with out a doubt the nicest ship we have ever sailed on. It is on par with almost any of the premium lines that are much more expensive. We traveled with friends. My wife needs to use a scooter since she is handicapped as did one of our friends. We were greeted at the curb by two attendants with wheel chairs. It took us exactly 17 minutes from the time we were dropped off until we were on the ship. This compares with 45 minutes on Princess and an awful 1 hour 15 minutes on Holland America. The screening, registration and security process was seamless. We traveled in concierge class. The rooms are tastefully decorated. They are set up as well as you can do on a cruise ship with adequate storage and very comfortable beds. All in all the staterooms are very nice. The common areas are beautiful and well maintained. The main foyer and Atrium use the space very well. The first three floors include bars, dance floors and shops. The higher levels have card rooms, libraries and public areas that all open the the atrium making great use of the space. The food was excellent all over the ship. The main dining room was efficient and service was excellent. All meals came out exactly as ordered and were well timed. The specialty restaurants were as good as any I have experienced. General service through out the ship was efficient and friendly. All special requests were gladly handled by the staff. This was our 7th cruise on a variety of lines. We were very pleased with the Celebrity Experience and plan on making it our line of choice.
Consumer Review:The quality of the food was way below expectations for a 5 star ship. In speaking to more than 50 people who have cruised at least 2 times in the past, and the majority of them being previous Celebrity Cruise Line guests, all concluded that the quality of the food served in the Dining Room of the Celebrity Solstice was fae below their expectations. The lone exception thought that the food was good but felt that the choices should have been greater. Long time Celebrity veterans complained that the food wasn't nearly as good as it used to be! Some lickened it to the food served on the lower graded Royal Caribbean Cruise Line (a sister company of Celebrity) and told me that they would never again sail with RCC because of the poor food. When you paid the extra upcharge for the Speciality restaurants on the Solstiuce the food became delicious. The quality of the food was much, much better. And of course, the preparation of the food greatly improved too. The difference was like night and day. The normal dining room food was awful for a ship that claims to be a 5 star experience!
Consumer Review:The service and staff on Clebrity Solstice is excellent. It is a fantastic holiday and every wish and whim is catered for. There is a fantastic choice of food and beverages which are available 24 hours. There is so much to see and do on and off the ship that a week is not enough. We had a fantastic cruise and will be back.
Consumer Review:The Solstice is a beautiful ship, & the balconey room was very nice. The bathroom was one of the roomiest I've seen on a ship, especially the shower. More the enough storage space in the room. The Dining room service was a little slow, the food quality was average. Enjoyed our experience in the specialty resturant.
Consumer Review:This was our 35th cruise and we can say that the Solstice is the most beautiful ship we've ever been on. Everything from the embarkation process, the food, the service, and the ship herself was wonderful. We particularly liked the breakfast and lunch up in the Ocean View Cafe - with the small island kiosks to get your food, rather than long serving lines. Excellent idea. We had one of the best cabin stewards we've ever had and our waiter and asst. waiter were both excellent. We will definitely do the Solstice class ships in the future.
Consumer Review:This was our first cruise and LOVED it. The Celebrity Solstice was great.
Consumer Review:We cruised on Celebrity Soltice. The ship was beautiful...the food was the best....service was great. The only negative thing I have to say is it is a cruise for a much older crowd. I would say the majority of the passengers were 60 and up. They did not have a lot of on board activities when we were out to sea. Entertainment again was geared towards an older crowd. On a positive note everyone on the ship was there to make you happy. The staff was fantastic and always wanting to please and make your vacation the best. I would definately cruise with Celebrity again, I would just pick a "younger" crowd.
