We did 14 days - 13 nights aboard the Celebrity Solstice from Sydney around New Zealand and back. It was the first cruise for Celebrity in Australia. This is no ordinary cruise ship - more like a floating 5 star hotel. We had a sensational time !!
Our first glimpse of the Celebrity Solstice berthed at Circular Quay - Sydney.
It was overcast and drizzling rain.
Our room on the 11th deck.
At the very top is lawn - real lawn. The only cruise ship to have a green keeper and lawnmower on board.
