Fantastic Cruise

Sail Date: September 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise, and we went with friends who are frequent cruisers. They told us, "if this is your first cruise, you've been spoiled, as not all ships are this nice, the service outstanding, and the crew so friendly." We had a marvelous time seeing the scenic wonders of Alaska. Thank you Celebrity for making our first cruise a memorable one.

Pros: The ship and crew were outstanding. The entertainment top notch. And the food and service were great!

Cons: The dog sled race in Skagway. I didn't realize when booking this excursion that the dogs they used would be under-fed and tired looking. They were all so skinny, but so happy to run anyway. We felt guilty riding in the sleigh.
