In all honesty, the BEST thing by far about the cruise was their guest speaker, Brett Nixon. He is a career researcher who was on the Solstice as a collaboration to share his knowledge and research of Alaska & its wildlife through ... Read more

I cruised to Alaska on a similar route 10 years or so ago on Infinity, loved it and was very excited to return this time with my husband who had never been. We chose to sail on Solstice as we love this class of ship and had never been to ... Read more

This was our second trip to Alaska, but offered a better itinerary, with 4 stops, than our first, with two. We especially enjoyed the stop at Icy Strait because it is not nearly as commercialized as the others. As always, the food was ... Read more

The ship is beautiful! The cabins are very nice, the shower, bed and the guys taking care of our room! The transfers from the airport and back to the airport were horrible! I really thought I was going to have to drive the bus back to ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the Alaska scenery, which was breathtaking, and the weather was not too hot. The dining was very good and enjoyed the buffet for breakfast and lunch. It was often too busy to find a seat and some help would have ... Read more

Our first cruise to Alaska was certainly memorable. First time with Celebrity. The ship is very clean though there are signs of age. We had a balcony cabin on the starboard side, room 7014. The cabin was nice with plenty of room for me ... Read more

First time to Alaska. Agreed on by all participants. We knew going in that it was not a Caribbean cruise, the weather was going to be cool and rainy. It was. Everything was as promised. Nothing was extraordinary, nothing unexpected. No ... Read more

As with all my reviews, this is my opinion, no need for sarcasm or flaming. We've cruised enough times and feel we have a pretty good insight as to what the industry used to be like and how it has changed. Arrival, approximately 11am, ... Read more

This was my 14th cruise, first with Celebrity. 11 have been with Holland America, and 2 with Royal Carribean. I expected it to be similar to Holland America, but was sadly disappointed. The room was small, but well laid-out, and the two ... Read more

My husband and I are regular cruisers. We love the convenience of unpacking only once and visiting different ports of call. This trip was special because of Solstice’s Master, Captain Tasos Kafetzis. He was a hoot! I don’t ... Read more

An Alaskan cruise was on our bucket list, and as we get older and a bit less mobile, we decided to go for it. We chose Seattle for a round-trip experience because it was easier. No regrets, but a couple of cautions. The airport is a ... Read more

This is my 3rd time on Celebrity. I have also been on Holland America 3 times, once on Royal Caribbean, Regent and Seaborn. I know that Celebrity is trying to compete with those latter two lines that are all inclusive, hence offering ... Read more

Travelling on a cruise without our children was a first for my wife and myself. We had a wonderful trip. Three years ago we cruised on the Disney Wonder to Alaska, and we had our kids with us. This experience might have been even ... Read more

As this was a gift from our daughter and family for a special birthday we really had no input into the choice of cruise line, however we are so glad the travel agent helped her choose Celebrity Infinity. Although we are really well ... Read more
