Stayed in Aqua class so had most dinners in Blu. The food and service was outstanding. Service was fantastic all around. Buffet was good also with many selections. Ship and rooms clean. Loved the shower in the Aqua class room. The balcony was a good size.
Embarkation and disembarkation was very organized. We planned our own excursions so I can't comment on the ship's offerings. It was much less expensive that way. We didn't use the PersianGarden. I checked it out and it seemed claustrophobic. No windows and very small. The heated lounges were really chairs in the middle of the "Garden" tiny room and not as described. The daily Celebrity Today news was very helpful and also came with daily spa and salon specials so don't pre-book them. Ladies - bring your own blow dryer. The one they provide requires that you hold down the button the whole time or it shuts off. The pools and hot tub were all great. We were lucky to be up there during a long streak of beautiful summer weather. More Felt like a Caribbean cruise at times!
We also planned our own land tour which was much more cost effective. We used both Toursaver and northern lights coupons. There are a lot of duplicates so next time I would probably get one. The first night the show was like watching an episode of Lawrence Welk! Very boring but we gave them another chance and the following shows were much, much better. Some of the crew were a bit English challenged if you asked a question but there was no problem with the front line staff. Hubbard glacier was amazing but we didn't't see it calve. Bottom line is that we would definitely recommend this cruise. We also saved a lot of money by using Cruise Compete. Got it for about half of the list price and it included the alcohol package! Less

Train ride was a bit boring. The van tour to the Yukon was great. I would rent a car here next time.
