My sailing on Celebrity Solstice was an amazing experience!
This article covers the six amazing things that I experienced sailing to the Mexican Riviera on Celebrity Solstice.
I sailed on Celebrity Solstice in November, 2022 on a seven-night sailing to the Mexican Riviera with stops in Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada and Puerto Vallarta. Throughout the year, Celebrity Solstice offers various itineraries on the West Coast including the one I was on as well as sailings to Coastal California and to Alaska!
In 2023 you can also sail on Celebrity Solstice on a special Celebrity Presidents Sailing to Alaska with Captain Kate as the host on June 23, 2023.
I booked a balcony cabin on Celebrity Solstice under the Indulge Package which included Premium Wi-Fi, Premium Drinks and gratuities as well as $600 in onboard credit. That package is no longer available; however, you can currently book the All-In Package that includes Basic Beverages and Basic Wi-Fi package as well as gratuities.
I booked the cruise in the Indulge package at a cost of approximately $3,500. I used the Celebrity Move Up program and bid on an Aqua Class room for a cost of $120. The bid was accepted a couple weeks before the sailing. The upgrade gave access to the thermal suite of the spa and dining in Blu, the exclusive dining room for Aqua Class passengers.
I flew to Los Angeles the night before the sailing using miles and points and stayed at a hotel near the port also using miles and points.
The total cost of the cruise was approximately $3,620.
