Alaska and Celebrity Solstice-Both disappointing
Alaska was cool, dreary, and the ports More definitely were not what we had anticipated. Maybe we expected too much as this was the most expensive cruise we had ever taken. We did enjoy whale watching from the balcony one evening and a shore excursion that cost over $400 for two to the Sawyer Glaciers. It was well worth the $400. It was the only thing we saw that made us think we had left home. We took the White Pass Railroad excursion and while it was fun the scenery was a lot of trees and brush. We saw a bit of snow capped mountains in the distance. The ride up on the bus was much more scenic.
All in all we will never sail Celebrity again nor will we cruise to Alaska. Alaska should be seen inland from what I am told. The ship is very beautiful, but extremely quiet and dull. If that is what you like, sail the Solstice. As for us, we need a bit more excitement. Less
