The night before we sailed we reserved an 8:15PM dinner reservation at the Space Needle. Dinner was excellent...but very expensive. The timing was perfect because we saw Seattle during daylight, sunset and nighttime all while enjoying our ... Read more

Celebrity is not what it used to be. I will need to lower my expectations. I am very disappointed that our favorite Cruise Line continues to go downhill. My wife and I have been on 5 weeks of Celebrity cruises during this past year. ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise and my husbands 7th and our 3rd with Celebrity and we weren't disappointed. We had already sailed aboard the Solstice 2 years ago so we basically knew what to expect. We arrived in Seattle a night before the ship ... Read more

After being given a check in time which we met we had to wait almost two hours in the terminal before our number was called, no apology or explanation was given. The cabin was adequate and clean though uninspiring, our luggage was at the ... Read more

The ship is beautifully decorated and in good condition. The furnishings i the public areas are very different and interesting - lots of places to hide away and people watch. Didn't care too much for the artwork which I have always ... Read more

This was the second stage of our B2B cruises of the Pacific coast and Alaska. This was a bit of a disappointment bearing in mind we were now in the Royal Suite as oppose to the Concierge class we had in the first stage. First of all ... Read more

Overrated Inside passage from Seattle. Nice scenery from our balcony but you are never going to get an Alaskan experience without buying pricey shore excursions. Most everything in Katachan, Juneau and Skagway is either owned or controlled ... Read more

Let me state this first. The cruise itself, its crew, and its food rated 6 stars out of 5. The ship itself rated a 3 and support from Cruise Air rated negative stars. This was our first trip with Celebrity. We are Diamond Plus with its ... Read more

We chose this cruise to replicate a cruise we did in 2008 which included Alaska. This time we did B2B with the Alaska cruise. The ship was a nice size but was showing some signs of its age. Embarkation at San Diego was very fast and ... Read more

The food at dinner was good, but the buffet seemed a industrial dining area,with very long tables and very uncomfortable, unable to have privacy, and very congested all the areas. And in our cabin during the 10 nights we were hearing ... Read more
