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.
- 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)
-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
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!
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.
Had a great time aboard the Celebrity Century on our Alaskan cruise. The ship does show signs of wear, but all of the main interior areas are very nice. The ship has a "funky" feel to it with lots of smaller areas to explore. The food was excellent and the staff were some of the friendliest we have ever had on a cruise. All in all a very good time.
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,
The Staff were very friendly. The ship is very attractive. The food was exceptional. I tayed in a suite and had access to the Micheal's Loungs. The lounge is an excellent idea the staff with super helpful, I will go suite from now on!
The ship maintenance was substandard compared to Princess Cruise Line and the noise level in our room was unacceptable. There was continuous clanking, sounded like bottles being dropped into a steel bin and then being crushed. Personnel on the ship was excellent. Choice of ports of call not the greatest.
I took my daughter and her two college friends for spring break, they had never been on a cruise. They loved it!!! Caesar our cabin attendant above and beyond. Our server Sandae and his coworkers were incredible, especially the girl that helped him with water, rolls, ect... Everyone was so amazing that I cant even put it into words. PRICELESS!!!!
My only regret on this cruise was, it wasn't long enough, I really enjoyed myself, along with my daughter & son-n-law. This was my second trip using the Celebrity Cruise line. There was never a moment of motion sickness. The food on the ship was awesome. View from my cabin on the ship, the day we left Ft Lauderdale, it was beautiful. The crew on the ship was always polite and very helpful with any questions or location of all events.
