This was our third cruise. Our previous 2 cruises were with Royal Caribbean and we enjoyed them. We thought we were taking a step up with Celebrity, but everything was identical to the Royal Caribbean experience, down to the smallest detail. They have a solid formula. Checkin was well-run with many supporting staff at the pier. We boarded the ship to complimentary champagne. Within an hour we were in our stateroom. Two hours later we had our luggage. The buffets were well-run with good diversity of choices, including vegetarian which is our preference. Evening dinner service was excellent with good selection of meals. Entertainment was predictably campy and enjoyable. We were able to ballroom dance nightly which made the trip very nice. The fitness center was well-equipped. The thalasotherapy pool was delightful. Since my wife won the jackpot on a poker machine we came away big winners! De-boarding was, again, well-run. Our criticisms are few: missing fresh fruit at the buffet (strawberries, blueberries), tuna steak at dinner that was tough, sidetrips were expensive although enjoyable. Best side-trip was the Skagway 7 mile hike to the Lawton glacier - if you are fit, it is not to be missed. Ketchikan side-trip of jeep and canoeing was only fair - expensive with little to see.

Well-run, enjoyable cruise experience
