Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by celebritychristopher
- Sail Date: August 2018
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class
This is a huge ship with some thousands of people on board. I had a premium cabin which I thought entitled me to priority but it certainly didn't work out like that. The designated restaurant was poor with second rate food. I normally ate in the restaurant of other classes which had a much better selection of dishes and better service. There was nothing particularly attractive or special about the so-called "special" class for which I paid and many of the advertised benefits did not materialise.
Most of the passengers seemed intent on sitting at the numerous bars or in the casino or shopping in the many, many overpriced shops onboard. If that is your idea of a holiday then this will suit you.
The elevators are constantly packed and it takes forever to get between decks on the ship.
There are children everywhere, the pool facilities are overwhelmed with children, and the other facilities are taken up by groups traveling together.
I found this cruise a most unpleasant experience, extremely highly priced for what you receive and I certainly would not recommend it to anyone who was interested in the sights of Alaska. The priority seemed to be ship board partying rather than Alaska as a destination.
Others on board who made comments to me similarly decided they would not cruise again.
I would not choose such a cruise again nor have I found Celebrity Cruises at all responsive to my needs, concerns, or particular situation.
