Good morning everyone. My wife and I are booked on a 11 day Hawaiin cruise this April aboard the Soltice.We have already made final payment and are ready to go(YA). I have keeping an eye on the prices just for the heck of it.But lately I have not been able to find the cruise anywhere . I have looked at about every website I could find but nothing.Is this what happens when a cruise is sold out or what.Thanks for your time and have a good day

Give your agent or Celebrity a call. It will ease your mind. If the cruise was cancelled they "should" notify you.

Take care,
Mike

Hopefully this is the one you are referring to. I think it is possible that a techinical issue between the US agents & the cruise line is preventing them showing the cruise.

Hope you get to see it again soon :o)

Alan.

It doesn't appear on the U.S. Celebrity website, and when I did find it here on seascanner.com if you look at availability it says no cabins are currently open. Now, I do find it odd that it would be completely sold out several months away, especially a repo cruise in April. I've seen this happen before when a cruise line was ready to pull the plug on a cruise and give it up to a charter group, but the Solstice will be in the South Pacific during this time and charters really don't happen that much from Hawaii or in Australia.

The last time I looked, Solstice is not scheduled for routine drydock until the fall of 2016.

I dug around some more and found that some large groups are blocked out on this cruise. There is apparently a medical group of Canadians and Americans, a gay group, some others.

I hate to keep beating a dead horse.I found the same cruise on another web site and it said it was sold out.I did find this cruise for sale on a gay travel website. I was just wondering what would happen if this web site was not able to fill all of the rooms? Would the rooms go empty or would the go for sale on all the other web sites just curious

If an agent or charter group can't fill all the cabins they blocked out by a pre-determined date they go back into inventory and are open for individual bookings.
