Pretty good cruise on an nice older ship by 2berto

I had read a lot about the overhang above many of the rooms (including Aqua Class) on deck 9 - these pics. kind of show what it's like. It's really only an issue if you are trying to take a wide angle photo or if something is close up and very high. For 98% of the time it is not a problem - in fact if it is raining or if the sun is really out and baking things, you'll be glad it is there. If you really want a true full view veranda - the suites on level 6 Aft (a bit spendy) are nice but you can be seen from rooms above. The only other problem with this room is the shower - it is great with wall jets and rain head etc.. but the nice glass doors they have don't seal well and you tend to get water on the floor. (poor stateroom attendant kept it up as nice as possible) . To Aqua Class or not: we did it on a whim and at a good price - mostly for the access to dine in Blu - much nicer experience than the MDR. Other than the last night (there must have been some staff issue) , the service was impeccable. Also enjoyed breakfast on 3 mornings in Blu - a really calm, luxury dining experience. We also took advantage of the free access to the spa's Persian Garden (2 steamrooms + 1 dry and really nice heated lounge) - they sell a week access to others for $109 or $20 /day . These two perks make the Aqua class worth it if you can get a good price. The priority embarkation saved us 15-20 min. The sparkling wine comp is a bottle of their house sparkler (sells for $35 aboard) - not bad - it is what you would expect from a basic house wine. The other listed perks of Aqua are not much to worry about. Th itinerary was really good - it gave a good sample of what coastal Alaska is like. They get in really close to the Hubbard Glacier which is spectacular -great viewing from the room and even better up on deck 11. The ship remained at 1/4 - 1/2 from the face (turning a few times) for about 40 minutes . Juneau was great - we were there from 7am to 9pm so there was ample time to see things. The best was the "Mendenhall Glacier paddle and trek" excursion - where we paddled across Mendenhall lake to the glacier and put on crampon spikes and hiked the glacier ice for about an hour. ( expensive, limited availability, small group but worth it - they provide all the gear needed) . Ketchikan is a really cool little city - the Alaskan Riviera ! Icy Straight (Hoonah) is a small little village with a very small cruise port and a shuttle to take you 1 1/2 to the village. They have a zip line (world's largest ?) but watching those who did it, it didn't seem that cool ~ $175 pp.

This is our second cruise with Celebrity, and Lord willing, there will be other cruises in the future - but if not, we've thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Very pleasant vacation by jmolinar

Ahmad was amazing with being hospitable and with the cleanliness of our room. All staff around the ship was always professional and willing to help when needed. The Cafe food was decent and was well rounded for all tastes. The desserts were beautiful but lacked taste. Our embarkment was so smoothe but unfortunately we saw that we missed pictures. I was a little disappointed as we still don’t know where they were taken. I felt so smooshed when dining at the Metropolitan but the staff was always willing to help. The food was mediocre and at times bland so we ate more times in the cafe or off the ship when we were at port. The entertainment was good but was hoping for more family fun since we seemed to always be in bad weather.

Trip of a lifetime. by jmireault

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This trip was one that memories are made of. Unbelievable experience. The natural beauty of the Last Frontier mixed with the best of service, excellent communication from the captain and crew every morning, exceptional docking and views of the Hubbard glacier - the captain took extra care to ensure everyone on board had multiple views of this beautiful wonder, up close and personal. The cabin service was top notch, and so very expedient. We weren't left wanting for anything, except wanting more. Everyone on the ship was there for one reason, to serve their guests with a smile and accommodation. Anyone would be lucky to have this experience, on this ship, and with this crew. Thank you.

Alaskan Cruise - Millennium by GreginMN

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

We went with the expectations that the Celebrity line was an above average cruise line. I guess our expectations were too high. Didn't feel it was anything better than the others we have taken (Carnival, Royal Caribbean). Food was average and "staff" entertainment was not up to what we have seen on other ships.

Plan on a whale watch in Icy Strait. Having been to Alaska multiple times, we mainly explored on our own and enjoyed this very much. Excursions are becoming very expensive

Restful but disappointing by UnhappyCamper4

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

It would be nice if the cruise director were evident, also if Solo travelers were paid some attention. An unhosted lunch scheduled with no one from ship to escort is ridiculous and a waste of my time. There will be more Solo travelers in future, pay more attention to them. Cocktail hour for Elites is great idea, it could be a good mixer.

Alaska is beautiful! by phumason

This was our 6th cruise with Celebrity and I was extremely surprised by how much has changed. So many cut backs that really affected our cruise experience. I'm not sure if we will be taking another cruise with them. Very sad because we always thought Celebrity was an excellent cruise line.

Family cruise to alaska by desertconcepts

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We had a great time. There wasn't as much night life on this cruise as others weve been on. Ages ranged 22 - 55, but then again most of the people were older. They did a good job of everything the majority of the time and the staff were excellent, efficient, eager to please and generally really great. Really no complaints. The ports were very touristy but we are tourists, after all. Had the best time in Homer after our cruise staying in a cabin and fishing. Alaska is an amazing state. Very expensive but a bucket list trip worth experiencing.

True Change of Pace by bharms

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was a bucket-list cruise for my Mother, but turned out to be a great eye-opener for the rest of us as well. We are well-travelled, but had not previously cruised. Even though several of us have spent years on-the-sea in our private vessels, combining the sea experience with the pampered care of the cruise was an eye-opening opportunity. Thank you!

Overall we had a wonderful time on our cruise and made many memories. I think I would go on celebrity again but may choose a little newer ship or a room with a balcony so we had a little extra room.
