Celebrity Solstice Cruise Review by phisha
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: Transpacific
- Cabin Type: AquaClass
The gym is modern and spacious and evening entertainment was very good, especially the Lighthouse Duo and Gilly and the Girl. Some of the special artists were also great but there was a lack of variety of activities during the day and the cruise catered more to an older crowd with two sets of five consecutive sea days with mostly passive activities on offer. Although there were a small number of families on board this cruise which spanned the school holidays, and there is a kids club, the ship does not really cater to children or a younger crowd. It is quite accessible for people with mobility issues but there were often long delays for the lifts especially when disembarking.
There were only 6 ports of call on this 19 night cruise so it was disappointing for a cruise called Tahitian Treasures that we visited two of the three ports in Tahiti over Easter where many places were closed due to the holidays.
Shore excursions can be prebooked through the cruise line or independently online for convenience but are usually much cheaper and quite easy to book when you arrive in a port if you have done some research beforehand.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
SnorkelingMarona was a great guide who serenaded guests accompanying himself on the ukulele and took us to his private island home for refreshments on the half day tour on an outrigger boat. We booked in advance with an independent operator online and paid double the price charged on the day. Snorkeling with sting rays and reef sharks was good but a little scary when they swam underneath you. The coral is not very colourful as the reef has degraded but there are some lovely fish.View All 28 Snorkeling Reviews
