We flew into Seattle the day before departure. Seattle was beautiful. Took the shuttle to the cruise port. Boarding went well. Excellent stateroom location - 8269. Did dinner and show the first night. On the second day, my DW developed gout in her toe. She hopped around till she couldn't take it anymore. Our steward got us a wheelchair and pushed her to the medical center and came and got her after treatment. When her condition worsened, he pushed her down there again and back. He was very responsive and helpful throughout the cruise. When the Dining Head Waiter found out she was sick, he sent meals to our stateroom for her - with dessert! Celebrity assisted us all the way from the ship to the airport to help us make or flights home. On our return to the cruise port, they wheeled her to our transportation and made sure we were secure and safe from port to airport. Celebrity did all they could to make sure our dream cruise to Alaska was not totally ruined due to unfortunate circumstances. Our thanks to Mulio (our steward) and all those that assisted to save our cruise.
By the way, they really do push those drink packages on the first day!!
