Always wanted to see Alaska and decided on Celebrity Solstice. This was our first time cruising with Celebrity and we were not disappointed. All Staff was wonderful and accommodating and very friendly. Dining was always a pleasure whether in the main dining, buffet and especially in the specialty restaurants. Murano was my particular favorite although the others were also outstanding. Cafe Biaco was also very very good for lattes and cafe mochas and of course their delightful desserts.
Entertainment was top notch on the ship. All the musicians were fabulous. Don't miss Rock City!
Although the ship could use some renovations, we found our balcony cabin to be perfect for storage and very comfortable. The ship was very clean throughout. The only thing we would have changed is to be forward rather than aft on our next cruise.
For excursions, we did not book anything in Ketchikan but did go see the Lumberjack Show which was very fun! Skagway, we booked the Best of Skagway tour which included a visit to Liarsville with Salmon Bake Lunch (We loved it!) and train ride on the yukon/white pass railway. In Juneau we booked a whale watch cruise which was AWESOME!! All were booked through Celebrity. Our favorite was cruising through Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier. The views were breathtaking and although everyone was out on their balconies to enjoy it, you couldn't hear a sound. People were in awe.
We definitely will be cruising with Celebrity again!
We would definitely have preferred to be up higher on the ship but our friends had booked the rooms side by side. The balcony did have a deck beyond but we found we did not have any issue seeing everything and we enjoyed seeing whales from the balcony! Overall, the room was very comfortable with lots of storage. Our room steward was outstanding!
Lumberjack Show was very entertaining. Lots of shops etc with a bit of everything!
Our Whale Watch excursion was fantastic. The catamaran was very comfortable and the crew was friendly and informative. We saw many whales and got some great pics and memories!View All 906 Whale Watching Reviews
