Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 2B

This was a great cruise and Captain Tasos was fantastic! He was personable, entertaining, and informative. We would take another cruise with Celebrity just to sail with him again. The ship is just the right size for us. Smaller ships can get into smaller ports and waterways, but they lack the selection of entertainment and food. The mega ships are just too large and impersonal. We choose this cruise because it was an inside passage cruise and it left from and retuned to Seattle. This was our first cruise in many years and we were very happy with the experience. We had a balcony cabin on the port side that was in great condition and we were well taken care of by our room stewards. If we do this cruise again I'll book a starboard cabin because I found the view to be better on the starboard side. The food was great in the main dining room and the buffet. We never tried any of the specialty restaurants because the food and service was so good in the buffet and main dining room. The entertainment was very good and the activity lectures were outstanding. Brent Nixon, who gave the wildlife lectures, was the best I've ever seen, and Mary Amanda who gave the port historical presentations was also outstanding. We enjoyed this trip so much my wife wanted to go back as soon as we got home!

The cabin was great. It was large and had plenty of storage. I enjoyed the balcony very much.

Misty Fjords Wilderness Cruise

Amazing scenery. The captain of the boat kept telling us this was a scenic tour, not a wildlife tour as we saw eagles, seals, whales...

This tour took us out on a boat where we saw harbor seals, humpback whales, and eagles. Then for a walk through a rainforest, and finaly to Mendenhall Glaciew. The guides were great and did a fantastic job telling us what we where seeing an answering all questions.

White Pass Scenic Railway

The White Pass Railway tour is an amazing experience. We had perfect weather for the 20 mile ride. I can not begin to do justice to the marvelous scenery. The ride is narated with stories of the history of the railroad and area.

Butchart Gardens

We took a Chinese Lantarn Walk tour. When we arrived they gave us chinese paper lanterns with lights in them. We ambled through the beautiful gardens of flowers, sculptures and fountains. The gardens are breathtaking to say the least.
