Good but some disappointments

I had sailed on Celebrity Summit to Alaska several years ago and it was excellent. This time, on the aging Solstice, while most of the service was top notch, there were disappointments. First, our luggage was lost on boarding until the next morning. After a few conversations with guest relations the first night, all initiated by us, not once did they call us back with updates, but sent up kits ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted a roundtrip cruise to Alaska from a US port. This cruise checked the boxes. This ship was recommended by a travel agent friend who frequently cruises. This was a second cruise for my companion and me. My stateroom was spotless. The ship was beautiful. My companion and I LOVED Captain Tazos. We were obsessed and we wanted to talk with him every time we ...

My husband cruised on the Celebrity Solstice ship, May 24-31, round trip from Seattle to Alaska. On our cruise, we visited Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway, Alaska, as well as visited Victoria, BC, Canada. We were supposed to visit Tracy Arm Fjord as well, but unfortunately, there was no safe way to do so, according to our captain. Our stateroom attendant said such a departure from itinerary had ...

We lucked out with good weather but the cruise did not meet our expectations. Just about everything was just pretty average other than cleanliness which was great. The ship was very clean and well maintained. . This was our first time cruising on Celebrity. The food was very bland. The service was pretty good. The buffet offered variety but nothing exceptional in terms of flavor. The food ...

We took this cruise because our friends really wanted to. Wasn't on our bucket list but we were game. In the end we enjoyed ourselves but it wasn't what I would call the cruise of a lifetime. Our overall take back is the cruise companies have over extended how many people these ports can take. We were going into ports where there were up to 6 mega ships parked that could triple the size of the ...

I took this particular cruise because travel agency it was too of the line. The staff was excellent as were the cabins. My biggest complaint was the food. I would rate it cafeteria quality at best. My friend who cruised with me was very disappointed as well but didn't say anything until the cruise was over. Although they did have many stations in the dining room to choose from I went one day to ...

For the first time ever, we were extremely disappointed in our Celebrity cruise. We are long time Celebrity customers and for the last six years have sailed at least once a year in their aqua class cabins. It seems that each year, there is another benefit missing from the aqua cabins .... we no longer get welcome champagne, the bottled water is now limited to 2 small bottles on the first day of ...

I was really excited about going on the Celebrity Solstice but once I got on board I was bored. The daily activities are really a joke unless you want to be sold something. The bars were really all the same with no real flare to any of them. The staff was nice at them but had no imagination when asked to make a surprised drink. One of the things that bothered my was the Captain and the ...

Background: I’ve traveled several times on DCL without kids and then with kids. I’ve been on the Wonder and the Dream. I recently sailed on the Celebrity Solstice to Alaska with a 6 and 3 yr old. Here are my thoughts on some of the differences. Summary: I feel that both DCL and Celebrity offer luxurious cruises with good food. I’ve enjoyed each cruise I’ve taken. Celebrity has a ...

We chose this Alaska Cruise to celebrate a birthday, 10 adults. The itinerary was really good. My complaints about this ship is mainly 2 things. 1. Compared to other cruises, there was always up-selling. Everyone from the ship that we came into contact with during the first 2 days were asking us if we wanted a drink package or to make a reservation at a specialty restaurant. This was really ...
