Second time to Alaska, but first time on Celebrity. The ship is in great shape with the only exception being the mini bars. In most cases, based on our informal elevator survey these can't be called refrigerated at all. If you need that for medical or other reasons be aggressive early. They don't have spare units or anyone that can fix them as best we can tell. Even with all the empty rooms we couldn't get a working unit installed during our 7 days.
Easy on and off with the only problem being the quality of the Sea Pass cards. Mine had no bar codes and the wife's had to be replaced as the plastic coating came off.
Buffet food doesn't change much and there is lots of room for improvement. On the Mexican station the fajita beef was the parts that I trim off my food and it all had to be discarded. Sour cream sure looked like cottage cheese one day and despite some head nods it certainly was cottage cheese. No fajita nachos this trip.
Fine except for the lack of a working mini bar. Beautiful weather to enjoy our balcony in Alaska.
Hopefully some of the new ships will design around cruisers that are similar to the ones I see on the ship, especially with regard to the bathrooms.
Skagway is great with many awesome excursions. The Dog Musher one was one of the best we have every been on. Very organized and interesting.
