7 Night Alaska Tracy Arm Fjord (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 22, 2015
Ship: Celebrity Solstice
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Everything about this cruise lived up to its billing: wonderful veranda stateroom, great food, good shore excursions, and endless entertainment. We especially appreciated the nature talks by onboard naturalist, Brent Nixon, and the very entertaining port talks by "Miss Amanda", Mary Amanda Fairchild. The highlight was traveling up Tracy Arm Fjord to see the Sawyer Glacier up close...all accompanied by narration from the naturalist. Throughout the cruise we saw Humpback and Orca whales, Dalls porpoise and many eagles - just what one would expect to see in Alaska.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We chose to eat at the Oceanview Cafe much of the time but also enjoyed the Grand Epernay Restaurant when we wanted to have a treat. We were not interested in the specialty restaurants.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Best: Brent Nixon's nature talks and Miss Amanda's port talks. We normally went to bed early and got up around 4-5am to enjoy the mornings.

Cabin / Stateroom

I was surprised by the size of the veranda: lots of room to move around and with a table and two chairs to boot.

Ship Tip

Don't miss the Hot Glass show. One of the glassblowers give great narrations while others are making individual works of glass art. There are blankets available when it's cold, so don't let this stop you.

Highlight of the trip.

Town overwhelmed by the number of visitors from four ships at once.
