The Good: Great ports of call, incredible scenery: I would do an Alaskan cruise again Blu (Aquaclass) restaurant - food and staff excellent Production quality of shows and singers, dancers and acrobats excellent Cafe Baci and the Martini bar as great as ever The Bad: Very tired and worn staterooms More crowded than Millennium class used to be Service overall not up to usual Celebrity standards (with some notable exceptions e.g. Blu, Future cruise, Martini Bar, performers) The buffet an awful experience - something has seriously gone wrong here Speciality restaurants not as good as on other Celebrity ships Poor stateroom service Overall, with some exceptions, the worst Celebrity cruise (and we have done five now) we have had. I really hope this is just this ship, and not a sign that RCCL are 'dumbing down' the Celebrity experience. As a result of this cruise, we decided to do something different next cruise and have booked with Azamara.

Great itinerary, tired ship, no more being treated 'famously'

Cabin Review

Aqua Class
Cabin A1 1140
Fantastic huge aft facing balcony above the stern bar, with 180 degree view (although those above on deck 12 can see last 1/3 of balcony. Perfect for an Alaskan cruise. Also provides rapid access to stern bar and deck 12 via external stairs. But, you can here the cinema above, sometimes as late as 11:30pm, especially with balcony door open.

Room was tired looking. Stained sofa and surfaces, worn furniture, same applied to bathroom. Absolutely not 4 start, barely 3 star. Stateroom attendant very average.
Deck 11 Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins

  • Wildlife Tour
    Bear watching with a real Tlingit clan leader. We were lucky to see several bears, both at the river, and a mother and cubs at the coast. Loved Hoonah and Icy strait - the real deal, and very well done

  • Mendenhall Glacier
    I was worried Meldenhall would be too similar to the Hubbard Glacier, but not so. Yes a glacier, but the whole park experience - seeing the Salmon running, the beautiful walks out to the falls and observation point and the lake and mountains

  • Mount Roberts Tramway
    A great experience, although dampened by low cloud and rain. Great walking at the top, and a first class visitor experience in terms of the shows and being able to see a bald EAgle up close.

  • Wildlife Cruise
    Misty Fiords by fast Catamaran. A really great local operator, they gave great insights into the local area. A long way to get to Mist fiords but well worth it. Imagine similar rock formations and mountain scenery to Yosemite Valley, but seen from a narrow fior. Really awe inspiring (and they gave us soup, donuts and a taste of local cured Salmon.

    Loved Vancouver. So much to see and do. A world-class city, with a spectacular setting.
