Celebrity Solstice Overview

Celebrity Solstice shares its year between Australia/New Zealand and Alaska. Around October until March each year, based between Sydney and Auckland, she cruises the South Pacific, Great Barrier Reef, Tasman Sea and New Zealand. In February Perth’s port of Fremantle hosts the ship. Around April to September she is based in Seattle and offers 7-night cruises of the fjord coastline of Alaska and the Inside Passage. Take a trans-Pacific cruise via Hawaii in April or September/October. The full crossing takes 27/29 nights, and consider linking it with a 7-night cruise of the Inside Passage. Celebrity Solstice is ranked by Berlitz (2014) the highest of large cruise ships that regularly sail Australian waters.

Accommodation

Ninety percent of staterooms have an outside view, and of these 95% have a balcony – more than any other superliner in the world. Standard cabins have a sofa or convertible sofa bed, twin beds that convert to a double bed, plenty of storage space, personal safe, mini-bar/refrigerator, interactive TV, and good-size bathroom. The cabins are nicely decorated and appealing with warm wood-finish furniture. You’ll be provided with robe, tote bag, bath products, hairdryer and safe, and twice-daily room service. Some balcony staterooms are interconnecting. Suites have more space, butler service, better amenities and personal service. There are no single cabins, and 30 wheelchair-accessible cabins.

Food and Dining

The two-deck Grand Epernay, with its grand staircase and musicians’ gallery overlooking the sea through a huge glass wall, offers excellent meals and service at two dinner seatings. The décor adds to the fine dining experience. There are three alternative pay-extra dining venues. Murano (reservations-only, extra cost), serves classic French and Continental cuisine in absolute style – allow three hours. The Tuscan Grille, an Italian steakhouse, delivers the best of grills, seafood and pasta. Silk Harvest serves a mix of Asian dishes. AquaSpa guests dine at Blu with a Mediterranean menu. A great selection of crêpes is available at Bistro on Five. Room service is available 24 hours a day from a limited menu of sandwiches, pizzas, salads and desserts.

Entertainment

The main showlounge Solstice Theatre typically presents song and dance revues, along with singers, comedians and musical acts. Theme nights are held in the Sky Observation Lounge. The Entertainment Court, featuring street performers, is adjacent to the Quasar nightclub. During the day entertainment choices range from games, art auctions, bingo, wine samplings and dance lessons, to educational presentations. A unique top-deck “Hot Glass Show” demonstrates the creation of glass art by the Corning Museum of Glass. For a quiet time withdraw to the card room, or the spectacular 24-hour library, extending vertically for two decks. Play casino-style games on your Apple or Android smartphone while onboard.
