It’s the Little Things That Make a Big Difference to Your Cruise Vacation Experience

“With 15 decks and capacity for close to 3,000 guests, Celebrity Solstice cuts a fine figure at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal,” said Adam Armstrong, commercial director, Celebrity Cruises Australasia.

“She is truly one of the most striking megaliners to call Australia home, at 317 metres long and weighing 122,000 tonnes, but she is also just seven years old – making her by far the youngest cruise ship to sail these waters,” he continued.

Kicking off her fourth season down under, Celebrity Solstice boasts unique features not found on any other cruise ship in Australia.

The local favourite is best known for her Lawn Club, a freshly manicured half acre of real lawn on her top deck, as well as an internal atrium that spans 10 decks, and a two story, floor-to-ceiling glass wine tower – capable of holding 2800 bottles of wine. Plus, 85 per cent of her cabins have their own private balcony –the highest ratio of any cruise ship in Australia.

Her other elegant offerings include spa treatments in the world-renowned Canyon Ranch SpaClub, stylish bars, lounges and ten remarkable dining choices – including Tuscan Grille, Murano Restaurant, Silk Harvest Restaurant and the Grand Epernay Dining Room, with capacity for 1,400 people in a single sitting. 

New Suite Class Experience:

The return of Celebrity Solstice brings with her a brand new Suite Class experience. All Suite bookings onboard Celebrity Cruises receive a host of added extras, including complimentary dining at the exclusive Luminae restaurant, a VIP lounge, complimentary beverages and specialty dining experiences, unlimited WiFi and more.


Celebrity Solstice also offers a new style of stateroom, AquaClass, sharing the same deck as the Canyon Ranch SpaClub. This accommodation option incorporates select spa elements into the staterooms including special access to spa amenities, such as complimentary visits to the Relaxation Room and the Persian Garden, an exotic aromatherapy steam room.  AquaClass guests also enjoy exclusive, complimentary seating at Blu specialty restaurant which serves deliciously healthy food in sophisticated surroundings.

“We believe it’s the little things that make a big difference to your cruising holiday experience. With Celebrity Cruises, the suites are roomier, the champagne is finer, and the grass really is greener. We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Celebrity Solstice back down under,” Adam concluded.

The best way to experience the Celebrity Cruises difference this season is on a South Pacific voyage. While Celebrity Solstice’s New Zealand cruises are very close to sold out, the best availability remains on South Pacific voyages in March and April. Plus, with the new pricing structure – Go Big, Go Better, Go Best – guests have more freedom to choose the inclusions that suit them best, such as a Classic Beverage Package, unlimited internet, pre-paid gratuities and/or USD$150 in onboard credit.
