Itinerary

The Venue

Celebrity Solstice

If only life on land was as good as life on Celebrity Solstice. Departing Sydney, Celebrity Solstice was the largest cruise ship to ever be built.

Celebrity Solstice’s biggest drawcard apart from its impeccable service and culinary options is the Lawn Club, a patch of real grass, a half-acre in size perched on the top deck of the ship providing guests with a quiet, country-club atmosphere. Guests can take a little picnic, putt around some golf balls or play croquet or marvel at the only Hot Glass Show at Sea.
