This Ship is "The Noise" - Caribbean Winter Retreat - Days 3 & 4

December 28 and 29, 2008

According to my 17-year-old nephew, when something is great it is referred to as "the noise." I guess then if something sucks it's "'the silence?" Well, the Celebrity Solstice upon initial inspection is definitely "the noise." Utterly beautiful from bow to stern. We spent the first day and half at sea just wondering around this uber-tug taking in everything it had to offer. And some of things it offered have never been on a cruise ship before. This includes a Lawn Club of a half-acre of real grass and a glass-blowing studio with working artists. The Lawn Club offered golf putting, croquet and a new game we learned on board: bocce ball. Other interesting accoutrements (see photo insets) included glass elevators, wine-tasting vending machines, an ice martini bar and a large live tree in a planter suspended in the aforementioned elevator atrium. The staterooms were extremely nice with plenty of room inside and out on the balcony, comfy beds and large flat-screen TVs.
