Accommodations

Alaska cruise aboard Celebrity Cruises

Alaska cruise aboard Celebrity Cruises "Solstice"

Visit Website

Celebrity Solstice® is one of our more decorated ships at sea. So it’s no wonder that it’s full of “firsts.” Like the first Lawn Club at sea.

The first Hot Glass Show. The first cruise line to have 5 women, also known as “the Leading Ladies” redesign, and redecorate the staterooms. Some other things that set the Celebrity Solstice cruise ship apart are its specialty restaurants. Our passion for outstanding cuisine has taken the restaurants, the food and the overall dining experience to a whole new level in the cruising world. But staterooms and specialty restaurants are only part of this ship’s charm.

Celebrity Solstice also has the Canyon Ranch SpaClub® and fitness center, where you can pamper yourself with spa treatments or push yourself in a workout with one of our trainers.

If only life on land was as good as life on Celebrity Solstice.
