This was our first cruise on Celebrity, and the third Alaska inside passage cruise. We booked Celebrity because we were told by several people that Celebrity was a "step up" from some other lines. The ship itself was very clean ... Read more

We went into the planning of this trip blind. Neither of us had ever been on a cruise before, and RCI, X, NCL, HAL, CCL was all just a whole lot of alphabet soup to us. Our wise travel agent asked us some questions and decided that the ... Read more

I didn't come into the cruise expecting the four seasons or mandarin. However, objectively, so far, huge disappointment. Service is way sub par and disorganized. Cattle herding. No personal attention. Food in main dining hall pretty ... Read more

The worst thing I can say about this cruise is that we did not like the baked Alaska! Seriously, that is IT! This was the most awesome trip and I was really NOT looking forward to it for a variety of reasons. I will start from the very ... Read more
