June 2017 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage
First and foremost, the staff on board made our trip! Michael's Club (Sylvia & Alexandra) & Luminae (Tyrone, Yan, especially were awesome, but so was everyone else) were top of the line for service, commitment and wonderful social skills! With so many "at sea" hours to transport back and forth, these 2 places kept us fed and comfortable. We liked Luminae for several reasons - the staff, the food and the selective access. As a special restaurant for our suite level, it was very much appreciated. Our Head Butler, Jose Fernandez, was every bit a professional and service-focused in keeping us comfortable. Our stops in Ketchikan, Juneau & Skagway were awesome. The Captain of our ship, Solstice, was awesome - keeping us informed, taking time for us to experience the glacier, the fjords and docking was incredible. He brought that ship in smooth as silk in 45mph winds in Victoria - and it was 1st rate. We loved the ship and its staff. This was our third time with Celebrity (Summit, Reflection) and the specialty restaurants were not up to par as the other two. Silk was totally disappointing. Truly, they were all good, but menus vs flavor just didn't mesh. All in all, we loved our trip, from beginning to final departure.
