After an eight-year hiatus, the Celebrity Solstice set sail from the Los Angeles port on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022. Bound for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the milestone sailing also marked the ship’s debut in the market and the first-time Celebrity Cruises has offered a full season of Mexican Riviera sailings in 15 years.
Prior to setting sail, I was afforded the opportunity of touring the ship and experiencing some of the delicious food and wine the Solstice has to offer. The ship features: generous staterooms, including the spa-inspired AquaClass with its exclusive access to the clean cuisine at restaurant Blu; The Retreat experience for suite guests including private restaurant dining and 24/7 lounge; The Lawn Club, a unique outdoor grassy area for playing outdoor games, taking in a movie or concert and enjoying the sun; the Sunset Bar, the best spot for experiencing sunsets at sea; a stylish outdoor pool deck and adults-only, domed indoor pool area; numerous distinctive restaurants with menus crafted by a Michelin-starred chef and the most-awarded wine collection at sea; and the extensive soothing treatment options at The Spa.
“When Celebrity Solstice was originally introduced, she ushered in a new, innovative era of cruise ships and introduced features and amenities few ever dreamed would be on a cruise ship,” said Celebrity Cruises President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo. “With such a beautiful aesthetic, this ship of dreams is the perfect offering for the City of Dreams and we’re excited to sail her along the magnificent Mexican coastline.”
