  1. My first day aboard a Navy ship, my CPOf sent me after 20 feet of shore line. When I asked him where I might find it he replied "In the locker with the wind shifters".
  2. I know that the Bistro on 5 was replaced by a Sushi restaurant on some of the Celebrity ships. However, I noticed on some cruise ship websites it still shows that it is on the Solstice. I wonder if these are old websites or it really does exist. I enjoyed that restaurant. Does anyone have any up to date info about Bistro on 5 on the Solstice?
  3. My wife and I are doing our initial research for our 70th birthday cruise for an end of 2018 /beginning of 2019 cruise to Australia and New Zealand. We are trying to choose between a 14 day cruise on NCL Jewel Balcony cabin for $2,079 or a 16 day cruise on Celebrity Solstice for $3,549. (Celeb's 14 day cruise is $4,049, which doesn't make much sense to me). If we went with NCL the savings for the 2 of us would be almost $3,000, which is considerable for us. We've recently sailed on Equinox and Reflection, which are Celebrity Solstice class ships in the past and loved it. Never sailed on the Solstice. We've also sailed on NCL in the past, but not on the Jewel and not in several years. We've enjoyed those cruises too. We are not "foodies" but we do like good food. I've read in other posts that the food is better on Celebrity and the entertainment is better on NCL. Both are important considerations. So considering the substantial difference in the price of the cruises, which would you do?
