We departed out of Vancouver. Embarkation was fast and smooth. We were on the ship within 30 minutes of the line opening. Once onboard were we able to explore the ship before our 11:30am concierge lunch in MDR. Overall the ship was clean and we loved the recent renovations that were done in dry dock. The crew were constantly cleaning throughout the entire cruise. We tried 2 of the specialty dining locations. Tuscan Grill was exceptional. Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was fantastic. We did not enjoy Qsine. The food was odd and the servers left me feeling stalked during service. The main dining room food and service was good. Most days we had breakfast in our stateroom which made for a perfect start to the day The cafe onboard was my favorite little spot. The servers there remembered us and our order. We also had a great time at the Martini Bar. I did get a hot stone massage onboard. I loved it and would recommend the service. Some would say the prices are high but it is a cruise so indulge a little. Some other parts of the cruise we enjoyed were the art gallery/art auctions, a few of the shows, bingo, trivia and the live music. The staff for the onboard shops were fantastic. We did have excursions booked each day we went in port. Ketchikan - Wilderness Exploration cruise and crab feast. The crab was delicious. We saw tons of wildlife on the cruise portion. Icy Strait Point - private whale watching tour with “Hoonah Whaling Tours”. Perfect time. I can’t say enough positive things about this little family owned business. Juneau - Dog Mushing camp was one of our favorites. We also did gold panning and salmon bake. These excursions did not disappoint. Skagway - 6.5 hour excursion to Kroschel Wildlife Center in Haines, Alaska. 4 hours of this was travel to and from location. The wildlife center was fantastic and we really enjoyed meeting all the animals and the staff at the center. Zimba our tour bus operator made our day with his personal journey story. After the cruise we did the Denali land tour. Be warned as we were not given clear information until the morning of disembarkation of the full day bus ride from Seward to Denali. Then the following day you are back on a bus for a day with a short train ride. We hope they change this for future tours to have more travel on the train instead of bus. Saving grace was the beautiful scenery. Overall we were not disappointed with our first cruise and would definitely sail with Celebrity again.

Absolutely Amazing
