Common features of Celebrity Cruises ships include aft located glass-walled dining rooms, signature alternate dining venues, bars and lounges, spacious Atrium lobby areas, a large number of balcony staterooms, large sundecks with swimming pools, The Retreat (adults-only sundeck with full-size swimming pool, Jacuzzi, cabanas, poolside full bar service). Rooftop Terrace (top-deck outdoor lounge-restaurant-cinema), large Spa (with Thermal Suites), premium retail shops selling top-brand merchandise.

Celebrity Cruises Solstice-class ship model (Eclipse., Equinox, Silhouette, Solstice, Reflection)

The 2900-passenger ship Celebrity Solstice was the first to be a part of Celebrity's Solstice class. Solstice has many of the personal amenities that cruisers have come to expect from the line, while able to transport almost 3000 passengers. Each of the vessels in the Solstice class has wireless Internet connectivity, bigger staterooms with HDTVs, large bathrooms, more storage space, and plush European bedding. The Solstice-class ships also offer an extraordinary range of customer-inspired services and amenities made possible due to the liners' bigger size.

Itineraries

Celebrity Solstice itinerary program is based on 7-day roundtrips to Alaska from Seattle WA during summer. During the rest of the year, the ship sails on South Pacific Islands, Australia and NZ cruises from Auckland and Sydney. The Solstice also visits Hawaii on repositioning crossings between Alaska and Australia.

Due to the Coronavirus crisis, the Celebrity ship Solstice was paused for 2+ years (March 2020 thru May 2022). Operations were scheduled to restart on May 6, 2022, with 7-day Alaskan itineraries (from homeport Seattle). The following Asian deployment for winter 2022-23 (based on homeporting in Singapore, Hong Kong, Yokohama, and 12-day itineraries) was eventually canceled and replaced with 7-day Mexican Riviera voyages from homeport Los Angeles. The Mexican program was previously assigned to the fleetmate Millennium (repositioned to the Caribbean). A total of 17x Asian itineraries (departures between Sept 16, 2022, and April 21, 2023) were canceled.
