A lovely surprise

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver
Having never done a cruise before my husband and I were a little apprehensive but we needn't have worried. From start to finish wen had an amazing time. With hindsight I would have preferred to have an outside cabin but that is the only thing I would change next time (and is no fault of celebrity!). From start to finish the service we received was top quality and we were made very welcome by all the staff.

Our room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Our cabin attendant was very good and efficient. We had breakfast mostly in the main dining room which was of a good standard with good variety for such a huge scale and volume of food. We ate in the dining room in the evening which was fantastic, again, a really good varied menu and the staff in here were fantastic. We were very lucky with both the people we sat with and our waiters who were good fun and vert attentive.

We took part in some of the activities and there was plenty on offer to keep you More busy in sea days. The gym was clean and well equipped. We went to some of the evening entertainment offered, not all of it was our cup of tea but that was fine as we were often too tired anyway!

We did not book excursions via the ship instead we booked our own trips which worked out fine.

We do not have anything to compare this to but we had an amazing time and would thoroughly recommend an Alaskan cruise with celebrity century. Less

Cabin review: 098019

Our cabin was in a good location, only a couple of floors from the pool deck and buffet cafe and one above the theatre so we seemed to be close to most things. The room was nice and quiet. No window though.

Port and Shore Excursions

Whale Watching

We had a fantastic time whale watching with Coleen from icey straight whale adventures. We saw tons of whales and Coleen was a great host.

Float Plane

Our flight to the Taku lodge near Juneau was the ost amazing trip. The lodge was beautiful, we had a fantastic lunch and even saw some bears. Thoroughly recommend.

Ketchikan was bit of a disappointment after such a fantastic time in Juneau. We didn't book an excursion here so maybe this was our fault, but there just didn't seem much to do in the town apart from the same old shops. Would recommend booking an excursion for this port.
