Life aboard Celebrity Solstice
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. 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 cruise ships that regularly sail Australian waters.

Celebrity Solstice, at 121,878 GT, carries 2,850 passengers, and is ranked in the best large cruise ship category, styled after the great ocean liners. Launched in 2008, refurbished in 2016, she boasts a wow factor along with a fresh and unique décor. Passengers give her 4-star ratings for most categories. Dining caters for all tastes, and a wide range of additionally-charged options. Relax in solitude, or select your level of conversation and ambiance. Daytime activities include lectures, quizzes, auctions, magic and the like. For evening entertainment there are production shows in the Solstice Theatre, soloists at the cafes, bars and pools, and cinema. All child and teen ages have dedicated program selections and centres. Dress is smart casual, with some formal nights.

Accommodation
Ninety percent of staterooms have an outside view, and of these 95% have a balcony – more than any other superliner in the world. Features in all cabins include: twin beds convertible to queen-sized bed, sitting area, vanity desk with hairdryer, interactive flat-screen TV (32” minimum), bathroom with shower enclosure, wireless internet access, and premium bedding. The suites are larger, with more personal amenities and extras. AquaClass cabins share a deck with the AquaSpa amenities, dine at the exclusive Restaurant Blu, and share in a feast of indulgences. Families can book inter-connecting cabins.

There are four suite-grade accommodations: Royal Suite, Celebrity Suite, Sky Suite, and Penthouse Suite. The latter offers floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, separate living room/dining room, baby grand piano, full bar, sofa queen sleeper, two 52" TVs, master bath with whirlpool tub, shower with dual shower heads, double washbasins and a 26" TV. The verandah has a second whirlpool and lounge seating. There are no single cabins, and 30 cabins are wheelchair-accessible.

Food and Dining
The two-deck Grand Epernay is the principal dining room, of stunning and contemporary design. Dinner is served at two sittings, either traditional with assigned tables, or 'when and with whom you choose'. There are four specialty dining rooms, all with picture window views of the sea. Murano is a superb, extra-cost reservation-only venue not to be missed. Blu is mainly for guests in the AquaClass cabins. The Tuscan Grille, an Italian steakhouse, delivers the best of grills, seafood and pasta. Silk Harvest serves a mix of Southeast Asian dishes.

For casual eating there are five options. Bistro on Five is for coffee, cakes, crêpes and pastries. Cafe al Bacio & Gelateria is an Italian coffee house and "Italian ice-cream" servery. Oceanview Cafe and Grill has a good range of self-serve buffet stations. The Mast Grill serves burgers, hot dogs, fries fast food. The AquaSpa Cafe is for light, healthier options. Themed bars, lounges and clubs provide a wide range of atmospheres for your pre-dinner drinks, private party, or relaxed down-time chat. 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 provide three shows on a seven-night cruise: circus-type acrobatics and revues. Theme nights are held in the Observation Lounge. Celebrity Central hosts comedy, cookery and entertaining lectures. The Ensemble Lounge is from the big-band era with jazz-style music. The Entertainment Court, featuring street performers, is adjacent to the Quasar nightclub. Throughout the vessel guests will be met by a variety of soloists and ensembles. During the day entertainment choices range from games, art auctions, bingo, wine samplings and dance lessons, to educational presentations. A unique "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 their Apple or Android smartphones while on board.

The adult-only AquaSpa operated by Steiner Leisure offers the full complement of beauty and massage treatments and facilities. A fully-stocked and staffed gym sports all the newest fitness machines, and there is an outside jogging track. The Lawn Club is a dedicated area on the top deck of the ship that features real grass where passengers can play croquet, bocce, or practice their putting. The Fun Factory has complimentary programs for children aged 3 to 17 years under the guidance of trained counsellors. Teens have their own X Club. The ship provides lunch, dinner and slumber parties for children aged 3 to 11, so parents are freed up to lunch, dine and party at night.
