Summer Vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Century | Sail Date: Jun 08, 2014

The cruise was very enjoyable. Smooth Sailing and great weather.  I was very impressed with our room stewart.  He always seem to be around. He know our names and which room was ours. When he seen us coming he would go to our room and open the door for us.  If we were carring bags from shopping he would take them and put them in our for us.  The shows were fun and entertaining and lot of other activities to keep us busy.  It was also nice that the kids had a club so they could be with kids their oun age.  What I didn't like was there was no way to comunicate with the children (age 10 and 13) and they could be any were on the boat.   Our Disney Cruise had phone that could be used on board.  The food was good and a nice variety,

Cruise review

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Century | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2014

This was my first ever cruise  , so my expectations were based on other peoples comments, I must say that I was a bit disappointed however.

My likes:

- stateroom had enough space to store clothes etc; also umbrella and tote bag had been thoughtfully provided.

-The buffet food had enough variety for different cuisines

-The crew and attendants/ wait staff were very polite and attentive

-Blankets/towels on the pool deck was a nice touch(although was too cold  and windyduring my recent trip)

 

My dislikes:

-Activities were very lame ; it was diffcult to pass time during the day; some more intellectual stimulation and more interaction/engaging the crowd sort of stuff would have been better.

-The night time shows were reasonably  good but was  the same thing every night; except for the comedy stand up and the aerialists, nothing else stands out. The same performers with the same performances every time becomes boring

-Icy Strait point was not worth stopping for a shore excursion.

-Dinner at the grand restaurant  was a long wait-took upto 2hrs at times

-I appreciated the  choice of Indian cuisine but was not well prepared.

-Should be more of Alaska in an 'Alaskan cruise'-this was more time on the ship

-Providing motion sickness tabs/ bags in every room would be good

alaska cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Century | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2014

The ship is ok. ,staff was nice. only concern about food, there is not much variety  in the food. everyday is kind of same . Indian food has no variety at all, same everyday. 4-5 days in a row ....fish curry and chicken. breakfast items are all the same everyday..after midnight everything is closed.

Didn't see any kind of chinese food.Italian pasta is drop out

Bar : happy hr  has only 3 kind of drinks. regular drinks are too expensive.

main dinning is ok. but then you don't know what you are getting. writing and prepration of the dishes are very different.

My First Alaskan

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Century | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2014

The cruise was overall a great experience. Service staff were excellent, food in the Grand room was excellent, my room waS always excellently maintained by the cleaning staff. Like stated earlier, excellent. The reason why I am giving the cruise a 4 out of 5 stars though is the lack of variety of activities aboard the ship while in transit to the ports of call. Understandably it would be more diffucult to have a greater variety of activities other than four texas hold'em tournaments everyday for a period of days. In reality this is just a minor issue considering that the real meat of the cruise is the sites visited such as Hubbard Glacier and the various ports of call. Those experiences were amazing to say the least. As my first Alaskan cruise, I have nothing to compare it too, as a cruise though it compares far more favorably then my cruise down to Mexico a few years back. That one was far less excellent. 

 

P.S The serving staff at table 607, Marcilano and Krishna were the best from the start to finish!
