7 Night Alaska Tracy Arm Fjord (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 08, 2015
Ship: Celebrity Solstice
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 1001
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Beautiful ship, incredible scenery, wonderful weather, attentive service, very good food (in main dining room/specialty restaurants).  Ship passengers predominantly rural, middle Americans with casual disregard for manners and social graces. Ports were strictly geared to 'kitch' souvenir shops and tourist trap restaurants.   Shore excursions were offensively over-priced and seemed designed to process as many tourists as possible in any given time frame.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
First-time on a cruise so, seemed like a small cabin. Definitely okay for one person but would be hard-pressed to occupy with another. Good selection of free on-demand movies, nicely appointed but compact bathroom. Thanks to the veranda, didn't feel claustrophobic.

Ship Tip

The full buffet had a nice selection of breads, salads, main dishes as well as specialty foods -- Asian stir-fry/Indian (India), etc. -- as well as plenty of fruits & beverages. Try not to call it the "Sneeze-Guard" Cafe or converse with your mouth packed with food.

If you like souvenir shops, you'll love 'Kitch-i-kan'
