Hey!

Anyone else going?

My first time on Celebrity and looking forward to something different. I've been on Princess a number of times (15) not to mention Silversea (5), Regant (2) and Royal Caribbean (1).

Please join this thread if you're on the cruise.

Sorry, guys....we're a month apart. We're on the Solstice sailing August 8, 2010. Sailed on the Solstice's second revenue cruise a couple of years ago and had a blast. Looking forward to the return trip.

Steve,

I hope you can make this sailing. You're a very considerate son to take your Mom along, under the circumstances of loosing your Dad.

I think the Martini Bar is easily going to become my favorite hang out, too.

We just returned from the Solstice this past Sunday. Friends of Dorothy gatherings were scheduled every evening at 8:00pm in the Molecular Bar on Deck 5.

Hi!

Thanks for the info!

I know from past experience not to base GLBT passenger count from these boards, as not everyone in on cruisecritic. I'll remain hopeful for a reasonable turn out at the gatherings.

How was Solstice? This is my first time on Celebrity.
