I first want to say that we sailed on Reflection last year and loved it, had no complaints. We have over 20 cruises under our belt, most on RCI. So when we booked Solstice to Hawaii we were expecting a great cruise. However there were too many things we were not happy with and I doubt I will go back on this ship. First the food in the dining room was not what we were use to. Many times it was cold, it was tasteless and they have made the portion sizes very small. I asked one of the chefs what was going on and all he could say was cost cutting. Trying to reduce waste. Also the dining room was so cold by the end of the cruise I couldn't wait to go home. I was sick of freezing to death during dinner. The Staff was amazing, very happy and always said hello. They made the cruise for us. I have not one thing bad to say about them. The ship was clean but all common areas were freezing all the time. Again we have never been so ready to go home and be comfortable. Also we were disappointment in the shows at night. They were the worst we have seen. The dancers were great, but the others were not what we were use to. The tours we did were amazing, can't say enough about them. Hawaii was beautiful. Our Hawaiian ambassador, June was wonderful. She held hula classes for 5 days and I never missed one. It was the highlight of my cruise.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class
Cabin C2 1231
Our cabin was clean but very small and we didn't like the fact that it was hard to get to the closet. Our balcony was very deep as it was on a bump, loved that.
