Experience cruising holidays on a grander scale onboard Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Solstice.
One of the most decorated vessels at sea, the Celebrity Solstice is famous for being designed by a team of five women. Whether it is the feminine attention to detail in its spacious and luxurious staterooms that have made the Solstice so popular with passengers, we can’t say, but it is obvious that this is a ship with plenty of charm.
But what separates the Solstice from the competition in our view is the vast array of speciality restaurants onboard. Celebrity Cruises’s passion for fine dining has taken cruise cuisine to the next level.
Itineraries aboard the Solstice range from a voyage around the breathtaking Alaskan fjords, to a sample of life Down Under, or the tropical islands of the South Pacific, so, whatever you want from your ocean getaway, there’s a Solstice cruise for you.Read more
The Celebrity Solstice’s itineraries focus on the West Coast of North America and the islands of the South Pacific and Australia. Set sail from Sydney on a South Pacific cruise which calls at the paradise islands of New Caledonia, tropical Vanuatu’s Loyalty Island and Mystery Island, taking in the majestic Isle of Pines on the way back to the sunny shores of Sydney. Before you set sail, enjoy a cocktail from the unique vantage point of the Opera House’s chic bar and enjoy a wander in the city’s stunning botanical gardens.
