7 Night Alaska/Hubbard Glacier (Vancouver To Seattle)
Sail Date: September 14, 2007
Ship: Celebrity Mercury
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
The food service (as always) was outstanding. Other than that, I felt like Celebrity over-promised and under-delivered. The highlight of the trip was cruising by the Hubbard Glacier, despite the frigid temperatures. The ship's staff seemed more interested in selling something than ensuring a pleasurable on-board experience -- you are charged for just about everything on-board. All the port shops that were recommended were complete rip-offs. Fitness center was always packed during my four visits. Shows were sub-par compared to most other cruises.

Coldy, rainy & windy. The train was way over-priced -- definitely not worth the money.
