May 2014 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage
My husband and I had a wonderful and relaxing time on our cruise. We had taken an Alaska cruise fifteen years ago on Celebrity and wanted to go back to see if anything had changed. The Mendenhall Glacier retreat was the biggest change we saw. We were glad we took the excursions we had chosen for each port city. We learned a little more this time. All the guides were fantastic, very informative and professional. The speakers for the Beyond the Podium were great. We learned so much from them. We enjoyed all their lectures. Our travel agent Greg booked us into the Aqua class. What a treat. We are now really spoiled. We'll have to book our future cruises in Aqua class. The cabins are bigger and we loved the bathroom. Our steward and his assistant were so very nice and helpful. At night, the animals they created out of the towels were so cute. The Blu Restaurant was outstanding. The food and service we received was unbelievable. We purchased the DVD for this cruise and they also included a DVD on Alaska. After a few days, we looked at the DVDs and we were glad we had purchased them. There were many activities on the ship that we were unable to attend, but were able to see on the DVD. The DVD on Alaska is such a great learning tool. I wish we had it before we left for this cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise to Alaska. Seven days was too short, so one day we hope to take another cruise back to Alaska, but for more days.
