Celebrity Solstice

June 2016 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage

Not impressed

We were very disappointed in this cruise.  We had previously cruised with Carnival and were led to believe that Celebrity would be a "step up" from Carnival.  We did not find that to be the case.  The ship did not WOW us like our previous Carnival experiences.  We did not find the staff to be as friendly and personable as on our previous cruises.  Our dining room wait staff seemed flustered during the first night, so much so that we wondered if they were either understaffed or inexperienced, which we later found out not to be the case.  We had to repeatedly ask for our water glasses to be refilled and our coffee was served after our dessert was finished rather than at the same time.  The presentation of the food was underwhelming (i.e. Chilled Pear Ginger Soup served as a pale soup in a plain white bowl... no garnish (just one example).  We could go on and on but suffice it to say that we will probably never cruise with Celebrity again and would not recommend it to others.

Cruiser905's Tips

Skagway, Alaska - Our excursion was on the White Pass Railway and was worth the cost and very enjoyable.
Seattle, Washington - We took a "Seattle in a Day" tour through Viator. It was fabulous! Worth the money and very informative and entertaining. Shout out to our tour guide, Steve who made it so much fun.
Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska - We ended up going through Endicott Arm because of large chunks of ice in Tracy Arm. A good decision on the Captain's part. Scenery was beautiful and the Captain got close the glacier and did 360 degree turn so everyone got to see the beautiful scenery.
