Never book Celebrity again

published

Booked a cruise for 18/10/20, in Jan 2020 $1000 non refundable deposit. Final payment due in July, reluctantly paid as was confident the cruise would be cancelled and advised it was the only way I would get my deposit refunded.
Received a email 27/07 stating how much I must be looking forward to our cruise.
Had an email from CEO of celebrity stating they have cancelled global cruising until 31/10/20 and yet our cruise from Sydney is not cancelled. We, as Australians are not allowed to leave Australia, how cruel Celebrity Cruise are behaving, leaving us waiting, telling us nothing, just keeping our money. Will never cruise with them again.

Disappointing

published

Trip to Airily beach aggressively spoken to when they somehow misplaced our 6 pm dinning was told 8:30 only and no change ,tender process is a joke if you have no trip booking 9 tour boats came in untill the first tender was available , cant walk on deck in morning as walking track goes through the smoking section best bar on rear of deck is cigar smoking US dollars kills us Aussie's
Royal Caribbean,P&O and Norwegian lengths above this bunch of toff noses room staff are awesome but the quality of shows arnt close to the other ships . The specialty Restaurants are superb but you have to walk into the Toff nose section to find them

Wonderful medical staff

published

Unfortunately after enjoying the first few days of our cruise I was suddenly taken I’ll with pneumonia. I was having trouble breathing,which was very frightening,but thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses on the Celebrity Solstice I was well looked after until we returned to Melbourne and taken to hospital where I spent the next 11 days. A big thank you to the Captain and crew who I’m sure saved my life THANK YOU so much

Cruising Perfection

published

It was our first time on a Celebrity Cruise having cruised several times with Princess Line. We were very happy with every element of the trip, the staff were amazing, the cabins clean and good space. The facilities on board were brilliant. We loved every minute

Amazing

published

Our cruise on the beautiful ship the Solstice, was a fabulous way to spend Christmas and New Year. The ship was beautifully decorated for the festive season and it was great to be looked after by someone else. It certainly made our Christmas stress free. From the moment we stepped aboard, we were wined, dined and entertained for 12 nights by a first rate crew. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The whole experience certainly surpassed our expectations.

Beats the Rest

published

Everything about the cruise was perfect.
Easy embarkation and disembarkation. Tendering was efficient with minimal delays.
Normal dining room was good and the others excellent. Didn't bother with the buffet.
The shows we saw were OK. We didn't expect Las Vegas.
It sets a benchmark against what we will use as a measure against all other cruises and cruise-lines.

Nice staff very friendly people

published

Was really a great week and the crew and staff are all very friendly. The guys at the bar recommends good stuff and as a vacationer, I really appreciate people like that. The place is nice and clean, elegant, and very classy. The ladies love it. Will definitely do it again. Outstanding experience

great time

published

Booking was easy through the same agent, check in was quick and easy, have done two cruises the Solstice first was out of Fremantle up west coast to poet headland which I found was a waste of a day, then onto Bali for an overnight off shore anchorage. which was also a waste hen onto Darwin. I would have preferred more time in Darwin.I believe trip has been rearranged so port Headland and Bali are out and with an extra night in Darwin. second cruise was out of Sydney Hobart then east coast of NZ then flew home. Ship is extremely comfortable clean and crew are always helpful and polite. drinks package and select dining is highly recommended. great foods be aware of your weight.

Celebrity Solstice

Are there ironing rooms and laundry rooms on ship to do your own

Going by Robinit review there isn’t: No ironing facilities in room due to safety I understand but why not a fireproofed laundry room to iron clothes. To have all my clothes pressed by the laundry service would have cost me at least $200 US!! Once again thanks to a mandatory 50% surcharge!!!!!

Dianne B.
Dianne B.

If we’re going more than a week we’ll only go on ships that have a laundry and ironing facility, not having this facility is a way they can charge there passengers more money, so as I said we only use cruise lines that have these facilities also I don’t like the idea of someone doing my washing I’m very fussy. And no I didn’t get a reply.

Celebrity Solstice

We're thinking taking our kids on the Celebrity Solstice during the school holidays (aged 12 and 15). Is this a good ship to take the kids on? What activities are there for the kids to do? Other than the price, is it worth booking a Guaranteed balcony room or a Guaranteed Concierge verandah?

1 answer

Hi, I don't know that I am really the right person to answer this question with my children being in their late 20's. It is a beautiful ship, but does not have all of the teenager activities that are perhaps offered on Royal Caribbean, eg water slides, rock climbing etc.
As for guaranteed cabins, our preference is for a high floor balcony mid ship.
