The Martini Mates reunite on Solstice

I guess the best way to start this is to tell you that way back in 2005 we met some amazing folks on a six day repositioning cruise from Vancouver, BC to San Francisco, California. And through the Cruise Critic roll call of that cruise we became fast friends. Along the way we have cruised time and again with a few of them and all of them and we have added some folks and lost some folks but this cruise was a reunion and most of the gang was here...16 in all and we were off to Alaska once again on Celebrity's Solstice.

Some other background on us so you know where I am coming from: This was our 22nd cruise and our 19th with Celebrity. We are in our mid-sixties, live in the Pacific Northwest and love to travel. You can find out even more about us on our website by clicking here.
