  1. Hey there Team! We are on the Solstice in AK for June 2022. This is a three time booking like most of you starting from an Italy booking then AK then a lift and shift to another AK for 2022. I saw the YouTube video below that shows veranda cleaning equipment parked outside of the Corner Aft Sky Suites. The owner of the video confirmed that this equipment was parked there for the entire week. We picked this location for an Alaska sailing so that we had maximum views of the beautiful scenery. Please help me understand if this is going to be there every day and if it is an actual obstructio
  2. To anyone who has cruised Solstice in the Retreat, would you please share your opinion? We are looking at an Alaska 2022 cruise (have a 2021 booked currently which is "on hold"; that was after our AU/NZ April 2020 Solstice cruise was canceled!) We last took an Alaska cruise in 2010. We have never cruised Celebrity (we're NCL Platinum and MSC Diamond) and since we love The Haven and The Yacht Club, we are very interested in The Retreat! We would book a Sky Suite, on Deck 12. Appreciate any insight you can provide. Thanks!
  3. Milford Sound; Dec 31, 2019 Background I had many mixed feelings about writing this photo review. Originally I was all motivated to get it out quickly for those who were taking a New Zealand sailing later in the season. But then the COVID-19 virus brought the travel world to a standstill and my desire for publishing this faded away. But with this extended cruise stoppage now set to enter its 7th calendar month, I am getting restless and I have decided to publish something after all. For all I know it may be a story about how cruising was before t
  4. Can anyone recommend a deck 6 obstructed balcony cabin on the Solstice Class ships where the obstruction is minimal? I am specifically interested in deck 6 on the Reflection but I assume all Solstice Class ships have the same design on deck 6.
  5. bonjour, quelqu’un aurait-il une opinion et ou des photos de cabine 1662 sur le Celebrity solstice
  6. Seriously considering booking this for Sept 2022. It is 15 nights with 11 days at sea. Ports of call are: Vancouver BC, Sitka, Alaska, Sapporo, Japan, Hakodate, Japan and one overnight in Tokyo where the cruise also ends. Couple of questions please for folks who have sailed on Solstice and or have done a similar Transpacific: 1. Solstice: like, love, mediocre and why? 2. The itinerary: comments on the ports of call? Too many sea days? Daviethescott got me thinking I need to explore the other side of the world. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hi, I am in the process of choosing a cabin for my Asia cruise for next October 2021 on the Solstice and was wondering about the above inside cabins. Does anyone have experience with any of the listed cabins as far as QUIET, or extreme movement? My March 2021 Cruise was cancelled and I am getting a late start rebooking due to not seeing the email in my hubs lonely emails for 2 months. These are all that is left on Deck 9. Please if anyone had a great quiet sleep in any of them, let me know. All we are looking for is quiet. I have had rooms with huge vibrations, and one sounded like a chai
  8. Does this ship have separate saunas for men & women in the locker rooms?
  9. Any negative experience with a bow facing cabin? Looking at deck 7 or 8. I know about the anchor and thrusters being fwd. Deck 8 looks like a better view, but anyone experience noise from the above bridge deck? Thanks in advance.
  10. Agincourt Reef from the air located 40 miles northeast of Port Douglas. Jan 9 2018 I have been very busy with a new job and so it took me some time to get this review started. For the same reason, going forward there could be a couple of days between posts. However I wanted to get this out before the next Great Barrier Reef (GBR) cruise starts on Mar 30. My family of 4 (2 parents + 2 adult kids) took this round trip cruise out of Sydney last month. We spent 3 nights in Sydney before the cruise (ringing in 2018) and then did the 12 night GBR itinerary. After the cruise was over we f
  11. Help, trying to decide what to book for May/June 2021. We were booked on Solstice last June so we have a credit. DH is now eyeing the Eclipse instead. We’ve cruised the Solstice in the past but he’s concerned she’s getting old and missed her dry dock. I don’t know anything about the Eclipse, cruising out of Vancouver or that itinerary. Anything you can say about it would be welcome.
  12. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have been on all of the S-class ships at least once and it's a design that has always ticked our boxes ever since we sailed on Equinox back in 2010. The Celebrity product has in most cases been the go-to brand because of our enjoyment of the ships and onboard environment. I was initially pleased to hear after the launch of Edge that the S-class were to get refits to bring them into line with the newer brand image, what I hadn't realised until recently was that one of our favourite places on the ship was going to be off-limits after the refit. I'm talki
  13. Can anyone say what they appreciate most about concierge class. Also is the Celebrity Solstice due a refit in 2021?
  14. Can anyone say how these two ships compare. We were on Constellation in February and we very much liked the hydrotherapy pool, which was freely available. Is it the same on Solstice? When are either of these ships going to be revolutionised?
  15. Looking forward to cruising again !! We were on the Millie - in a nice Celebrity Suite a couple of years ago - loved the Suite - EXCEPT for that AWFUL HIGH, HIGH, HIGH bathtub ! (many different reviews re: that) - Anyway - booked on the Equinox for a Caribbean cruise in September 2021 (hopefully !) - (this replaces a canceled one from September 2020) ... Can anyone tell us if the tub on the Solstice Class ships are closer to NORMAL height ? (MUCH easier to climb in and out of than those on the Millennium Class ships ?) This probably sounds like a dumb/silly question to any
  16. How do these two classes differ and which do people prefer. I have only been on the Constellation, an M- class ship.
  17. I recently booked a 2022 Transpacific on Solstice. During my call with Celebrity, I asked about the ship's Revolution, which was set to take place late-2021. I wasn't surprised when the representative said that all scheduled refits have been postponed. I'm sure this isn't news to all of you - I understand that these are expensive updates during a time of uncertainty and very little revenue, but it also seems logical to take advantage of the downtime in order to complete the work. I've read quite a few recent reviews that said Solstice seems run down even though she was refurbished
  18. And what are they? Looking to hopefully go to Alaska next year, staying in an aft cabin and was curious what everyone's thoughts were. Also....how are those aft cabins? 😉
  19. Has Celebrity given any thought to embarking Solstice out of Vancouver on the Alaska run, instead of Seattle?
  20. At the top of these boards, it says “write a review”, so here goes, in live, blogging style. Below you can see links to our last two cruise blogs. One at nearly 159,000 views from the Med on the Solstice, while the July 2010 Norway coast review is at nearly 132,000 views. It seems that the visuals make a big, interesting difference, sharing the beauty and drama from these wonderful areas. Tell me what you like, any questions, suggestions, etc. Our party and experiences?: We are traveling with five other couples from Central Ohio and one we hooked up with on the Norway cruise from the
  21. We are going to be doing a lift and shift which is going to have us move from a Millennium class ship in a 2C to a Solstice class ship. The Solstice class appear to have quite a few more categories of Veranda cabins than Millennium, so I’m wondering which category is Celebrity going to consider comparable on Solstice to our 2C on Millennium?
  22. We haven't sailed a Solstice class ship in a while, and I don't recall there being so many different classes. I understand the differences between Standard veranda's, and the Concierge and Aqua veranda's (not the Veranda differences themselves, but the class). Is there any difference between the "2" class standard veranda cabins and the "1" class standard veranda cabins? In other words, what is the difference between, say, a 2B and 1B....strictly location? I'm just using the 2B and 1B as an example....I guess I'm curious about any distinction between any of the 1's and 2's....
  23. Greetings CC's, With the lockdown, we've had time to finally go through all the footage from our first Celebrity cruise onboard the Solstice. Check it out as we also have a lot of other cruise videos onboard other lines. Subscribe to our channel if you enjoy as it encourages us to document more of our vacations. Thanks in advance! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLLdPpEIP0U
  24. Does the Solstice still have the giant X across the hump balconies? I'm reading conflicting answers.We have a cabin on Deck 7 booked on the Hump, and I'd hate to look out at a painted white pane of balcony glass.
