Day 1 -Check in with Celebrity Solstice
We were on the ship by 12:30pm. and had lunch at the Oceanview Cafe where they always have buffer service 24 hours a day. It had a casual chic atmosphere of the European marketplace and offered extensive menus of international food here. The buffet always came with a variety of gourmet salad, soup,hot food, fruit and desserts.
Our room - Stateroom Balcony
Dining room - Grand Epernay
We then went to the Solstice Theatre to watch our nightly 1 hour live musical show afterward.
On days we were not docking at any port, we usually had our breakfast buffet at the Oceanview Cafe, and sit-down lunch and dinner served by the waiters at Grand Epernay Restaurant. There were many activities on the cruise ship, such as a cooking show, art auction, crafts, healthy and skins care seminars, classes for taking pictures, golf, exercise programs, glass show, shopping at the boutiques shop ,late night comedy show or a movie to go to. There was a casino you could go to and dancing clubs at night at different lounges in the late evening. The ship was so big that the elevator could go up to deck 14 where the Sky lounge and Oceanview buffet were located. It's amazing that we didn't even feel we were on the ship but in a glamorous hotel.
The formal evening was set on day 2 where the captain welcomed everybody on board with free champagne at the theatre before the show began. All the guests and cruise members were in their formal wears. They had professional photographers to take pictures on these formal nights. The food there was just amazing. Here are some of the food we ordered from the menu at Grand Epernay Restaurant:
