Was bowled over with sights

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Seattle

Booked stay n cruise to please OH (likes scenery best)and myself (like hot places).Went with friends and firstly to Las Vegas-been before and still love it-then Seattle for Alaska cruise.Been on 6 previous cruises mainly with different companies as I like to try "different" companies rather than subscribe to the "been previously-get a "perk" group".(over rated I say).

The start was not auspicious-ship had been delayed 2-3 hours on crossing from California which meant long queues and chaos at Seattle (also we couldnt look round Seattle!)

The weather was helpfully both sunny and bright,if cold at times.Being Brits we are used to cold and wet!We were delighted with all our ports of call.No tenders was a good thing as no delays.
The only bad thing was Victoria,British Columbia-Celebrity-why so late? 6.00pm not a good time and hardly any time to see sights unless you were "anytime" diners or on a Celeb organised trip!
I am sure you could arrange an earlier TOA More ?
The ship was lovely and couldnt fault it!
Food was lovely too and entertainment and theatre well appointed.

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed this cruise and would cruise with Celebrity again,BUT Celeb need to think again about the "cost cutting" exercise in docking at Victoria at 6.00pm at night-bit of a con isnt it? -extra sea day?(though not advertised as such) Less

Cabin review: 097155 Inside Stateroom 9

cabin was inside but lots of luggage space-happy with it-better at NCL Jade who have installed plastic sliding doors on showers.

Unfortunately raining and cloudy here (only time) but we didnt take a tour and went by local bus to Mendenhall Glacier which was lovely-you need over an hour to do this -dont recommend "shorter" tours by ships. We could have also gone up tram to Mount Roberts but had not enough time-looked good but views would probably be misty.

White Pass Scenic Railway

We booked this trip with cruise line and it was very good and scenic.The train carriages are warm (with coke? filled furnaces every so often)-and you can stand outside carriage and use cameras as well. Would have liked time to visit cemetery with old Klondyke adventurers in there.

Disappointing!.We docked at 6.00 pm and it was at least 30 mins before we could disembark ship ! We only had time to walk round waterfront and back before our 2nd sitting meal (as it was last wanted to tip waiters and didnt want to disappoint...! Celeb are cutting corners here I think,and could have speeded up to dock earlier.
