The ship was very clean and nicely furnished. The staff was awesome and outstanding, always a smile and a kind word. Staterooms were spacious, thank goodness. Great shops and the food was just delicious. The selections were varied, and there was always a place where we could get food all day long. Outstanding first time on the Celebrity line. I would not hesitate to book again.

Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we did not take any tours. But it looked lovely, even in the rain

I love Skagway - a nice old western town. We went to the Musher's Camp tour and got a ride on a sleigh drawn by the dogs. Wonderul.

We took the Sausalito and Muir Woods tour. Just beautiful. Coming into the harbor by ship was an experience, passing under the Golden Gate Bridge.
Don't Miss: Everything

I loved Sitka, small and clean. We didn't take any tours here but walked around town. We went to the historical center and the Raptor Center. Just delightful.

We went on the Mendelhall/Gardens tour. But we found out getting off the ship that for $7 we could have just gone to the glacier - the gardens was nice but not necessary.
Don't Miss: The Mendenhall Glacier

Pros: Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff

Cons: Paying $14.99 for cough syrup, only to find it for $7.99 on land
