Celebrity Solstice Cruise Ship – Cruise par excellence

The Celebrity Solstice cruise ship was one of the reasons I felt myself lucky as a cruise reviewer. The brand new addition to the fleet at Celebrity cruises, the Solstice is phenomenal to say the least. I was among the lucky ones invited to see it in Miami, and have a first hand experience of the cruise ship. The Celebrity Solstice cruise ship blew me away to say the least.

Solstice has a gross tonnage of 122, 000 tons and is part of the Solstice class of cruise vessels. There are five ships in the class, Eclipse, Equinox and Solstice, along with two as yet unnamed ships. From the time I heard about the new ship from Celebrity, I knew something was definitely going to be special. The cruise line has a reputation for excellence, and lives up to it.

I already had a fair idea of what to expect, but still the Solstice totally surprised me with its perfection in design. There are a number of public spaces here that are extremely spacious and comfortable. The lighting is also perfectly tranquil. The ship is well designed, both in terms of aesthetics, and optimal use of space. The ship has well designed public spaces, and pedestrian traffic is well managed to never create a block. The good use of natural light is another benefit I observed.

The dining options at the Celebrity Solstice Cruise Ship are great. There is a good selection of excellent restaurants, bars and lounges. The high standard main restaurant is excellent, and serves cuisine from around the world, as is the less formal Oceanview caf’e, which has buffet style dining. The views here are good. In addition to this, there are 4 specialty restaurants, the prestigious Blu, Murano ( for fresh cuisine ), Tuscan Grille ( for steaks ) and the Silk harvest ( Asian cuisine ). All of these carry a surcharge. The hotels score points on ambience as well as food. The Blu restaurant has exclusive entry for AquaClass guests.

Entertainment also has no shortage here, there are a whole number of great options such as seven piece bands, acrobats, the steel drums and other shows.

AquaClass is an exclusive premier class at the Celebrity Solstice Cruise Ships, with a host of extras, such as entry into the Blu restaurant and Persian garden, the Spa area which has aroma therapy and steam rooms. There are a host of other luxuries afforded to them as well.
