Do they still print daily newsletters on Solstice?

Recommended Posts

In a couple of Solstice reviews, it has mentioned that Celebrity has been cost-cutting and don't print a daily newsletter.  Can anyone sailing on her at present, please confirm if this is correct.  Many thanks.

PS I will post this question on the Celebrity board as well

They certainly print one for embark day and no one from the ship ( or anywhere else) has mentioned that they do not print a daily one.  We still tell guests they will be receiving one in their room every night.

Yes, I have been assured from the Celebrity Board that the "Celebrity Today" is being printed daily.   Apparently, it is the daily newspapers they used to print, that have been discontinued.

As another member explained,

"It was a four- or six- page digest of the news, including some sports scores, high/lo temps of selected cities, headline stories.   Gone now."

We did a Pacific coastal cruise in September and they weren't printing them at that stage.They did have Sudoku on the racks where the newsletters used to be.

Haven't seen the two page daily newspapers for a while, I suppose as the TV has a few news channels, the demand was not there.

We sailed on the Celebrity Silhouette  in July this year and they had the daily  newsletter on it at that time.

On our last X cruise, they had the daily newsletters but not the various different newspapers (condensed to one or two pages) that were always available by Guest services.

The demand has always been there. But where there's an opportunity to cut costs, Celebrity is on it.

I think all cruise lines should stop print advertising. It is such a tremendous waste of paper to have endless art auction, shop discount, casino information delivered to your cabin on a daily basis. They are taking away plastic straws now and it is high time the advertisements were withdrawn. On my last cruise I had a drawer full of print advertising. I wonder how many trees are cut down per cruise just to print all their advertisements for art auctions.

You don't think the bean counters are doing well enough, eh.

I have never had a draw full of paper from a cruise, I read it (or start to read it) and throw it away straight away.

There was a drawer full of the papers on my recent Diamond Princess cruise. When it is in Japan they have origami paper plane flying competitions and people started keeping the paper stocked up in drawers. Unfortunately the steward never cleaned it out when I moved into the cabin. It made me realise what a waste of paper it was.
