We absolutely love the new Solstice-class ships and think we've found our perfect ship! But then again, in all fairness, we're in our early 60's and what works for us doesn't work for everyone. Personally, families with tweens and teens would not find them 'kid friendly'. Being foodies, we were in paradise during our Eclipse sailing and can't wait to try the new Reflection.
