July 2015 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage
Fantastic Cruise, and Donnie thanks again for the hookup. I had booked a "AquaClass Guarantee" room, since that was all that was left at a reasonable price with one week to go before sailing. We were then happily surprised to be upgraded at no charge to a "Sky Suite", with a balcony on the back of the ship. 100 extra square feet of space made the room incredibly larger. We were definitely spoiled with the butler service, but most impressive was the Luminae restaurant, with 5 star food and service. Excursion wise, we took the Misty Fjords tour (Ketchikan), The helicopter tour out of Juneau that landed on the Mendenhall Glacier, and the train in Skagway. The Misty Fjords tour was nice, and everything was beautiful, but didn't compare to the beauty that you will see when the ship enters Tracy Arms, so you might want to save your money. Another couple told us they did the Jeep/Canoe/Salmon Bake and that sounded better, for Ketchikan. The helicopter glacier tour was by far the best excursion of the trip. The train was nice as well, but paled in comparison to the helicopter. Very, very impressed with Celebrity overall as a cruise line.
