Each week, we choose five cruise reviews written by our members, one of which is showcased as the Member Review of the Week. In the spotlight this week is Cruise Critic member Docmommy‘s recent cruise to the Alaska aboard Celebrity Solstice.
Overall Impression: With only a few cruises under their belts and the majority of their travels done on land, Docmommy and her husband never considered themselves the cruising types. But after much research on Cruise Critic led them to a cruise aboard Celebrity Solstice, their crystal ball shows more time on the high seas.
Onboard Highlight: The Lawn Club, which conjured up an image of well manicured grounds at home and made for a cozy retreat after lunch.
Port Highlight: The sun peeked out for Docmommy and her gang in Skagway, just in time for them to enjoy the Gold Rush Era charm and a ferry to the nearby town of Haines.
Don’t Miss: The naturalist speaker onboard, who enhanced Docmommy’s experience by narrating through Tracy Arm Fjord.
Watch Out For: It might seem like a given, but prepare for lots of rain on this itinerary. The weather didn’t put a damper (no pun intended) on Docmommy’s cruise, but she also knew what to expect.

For their efforts, Docmommy and four other Reviewers of the Week — jfslcruise, Cruising mom 3, intraweb, and Johncn — receive Cruise Critic logo items.
