Solstice went into drydock yesterday for normal mechanical maintenance however they are converting 19 Concierge aft cabins into Aqua Class cabins...She comes out of drydock and back in service this weekend...Info was received from Celebrity's facebook page...

Boy, that's a fast turnaround!! I hope they added some more storage...we found that lacking in our aqua class cabin....good news though!

The Soltice is in Ft Lauderdale this morning. She left the drydock in Freeport about 10:00pm last night. That's cutting it pretty close!

I think all Aqua class cabins are limited to two people. I assume they removed the 'convertible sofa bed' option from the 19 aft rooms on deck 11 that they converted to Aqua class cabins.

My sister-in-law is sailing on the Solstice today. I'll try to get a report of any changes she might notice. She was on the Soltice less than a year ago.

12 weeks until the wife and and I sail on the Grand Princess!

This drydock was mostly for mechanical maintenance that can't be done in the water. Ships have to do this every 3 to 5 years. The new AQ cabins were just a welcome addition....

We were in concierge class never did see the difference apart from getting onboard quicker.
