Solstice-class ships are the largest and most sophisticated in the Celebrity fleet. The abundant use of draped fabrics, marble, stainless steel, and punches of rich color accent public areas. While most are contemporary in design—even a bit edgy—Celebrity included enough spaces with old-world ambience to satisfy traditionalists. The atmosphere is not unlike a hip, yet luxurious, South Beach hotel filled with grand spaces, as well as intimate nooks and crannies.
The Lawn Club, a half acre of real grass 15 decks above the sea, is where you can play genteel games of croquet, practice golf putting, indulge in lawn games and picnics, or simply take barefoot strolls. In a nearby open-air "theater," artisans from the Corning Museum of Glass demonstrate glassmaking in the Hot Glass Show. Also impressive is a tranquil solarium with a lap pool and solar panels overhead. These ships have a lot to offer for families, with a family pool and the most extensive children's facilities in the Celebrity fleet.
