This will be my first live review of a cruise. Inspiration from Chicago Paul.

A little about us, My Husband and I are in our 30’s and our favorite cruise lines are Celebrity and Disney Cruise Line. This will be our Cruise #5 with Celebrity and our 2nd one on the Celebrity Solstice to Alaska.

Boarding process in Vancouver is very interesting to say the least and we were asked at least 3 times whether we were crew members...lol.

Once we got on, our entire experience changed. The concierge Calli was very welcoming and we enjoyed a very nice lunch in Liminae.

Our Somelier Victor, our waiter Bayou were both amazing.





More to come once we get to our room

Keep the ship in good shape for us. We are on next week. I’m particularly interested in anything about Luminae, Michaels Club and the suites and related staff.

Muster drill is over, the Captain is hilarious. We are back in the room.
My husband’s user name is Traveling-the-World, he had posted about us getting upgraded to Royal Suite from a sky suite for a very reasonable price and we are enjoying the room very much. We love our Butler - Stevo very much so far.

We just disembarked Solstice today. Have your Butler arrange for Darko to
be your server in Tuscan. He’s amazing and you’ll love him. Have a great cruise!

Sorry, I don’t know. I do know there are four Nenads on Solstice alone, so there very well be more than one Darko!
