Solstice has four broad categories of accommodations:
suites, veranda, ocean view and inside. Within the first
two categories are various subdivisions primarily relating
to size amenities or location.
In general, the cabins are larger than on earlier Celebrity
vessels with larger bathrooms. "The square footage is a
little more, the balconies are bigger and the bathrooms are
most definitely bigger. [If they appear smaller than the
Millennium class cabins, it] is an illusion because it is
longer rather than wider," notes Hotel Director Simon

czase veranda stateroom. They are 194 sq. ft. with a veranda
area of 54 sq. ft. Such staterooms have: Floor-to-ceiling

sitting area with sofa, a vanity, 32" LCD TV , wireless Internet

have a trundle bed while some others have an obstructed view.
The enhanced veranda staterooms include the AquaClass

have a similar list of indulgences to the Aqua Class. However,
they do not have the spa retreat features.
The Sunset Veranda staterooms are the same size as the
aforementioned categories of cabin but do not have the
indulgences of either the Aqua Class or the Concierge Class.
They differ from the Deluxe Ocean View in that they look out
over the stern of the ship.

to a Deluxe Ocean View Veranda Stateroom i.e.: two beds
convertible to a queen-size bed; a vanity; 32" LCD TV; wireless
Internet access (for a fee) and a sitting area with sofa.
The Inside Staterooms (right and below right) are somewhat
bigger at between 183 to 200 sq. ft. Of course, as the name
