We have been on celebrity solstice ships many times. But over the las5 three years azamara and princess. We took relatives to get a taste of crushing to see if they wanted a longer cruise. Embarkation very good as was disembarkation. Room on deck 9 very clean but showing wear, safe cracked on outside so 8 cut my finger on this, sofa looked worn and outside table had clumps of what looked like wax on it tha5 wouldn’t come off. However I think the standards have gone down, toiletries poor quality, no shower cap or shower gel. Shower head water flowed slowly so that needed replacing, but not a major issue. World class bar , no so work class. The nice cut glasses replaced by thin glasses, a couple of times the tops of glass rims seemed rough due to poor quality. We were told that some of the premium spirits used were not available and saw them use run of mill ones. My hubby doesn’t drink and they refuses to do him a no. Alcoholic drink so he had to get one from another bar and bring it back. The bars had few staff on so the wait was always long. I was surprised when pina colada can in whisky tumbler as did a margarita, In the main dining room food as good as ever. But the wines it suggested were not used. I asked for the recommended glass of calafornian chard. They said yes but he poured cheaper one. I asked why and he said it was not available unless I got a bottle, so why was it recommended and priced on menu by the glass. Areas clean and staff lovely . Cafe very good for coffees. Staff worked hard but they were rushed off their feet at bars and in cafe. I’m booked again in July but if it wasn’t paid for I may reconsider, I’m hoping standards were lower as it was a mini cruise. They need to be careful as their prices are getting higher but I ? That standards have dropped.

Did standards drop as it was a mini Cruise?
