The Celebrity Solstice cruise to Alaska and Tracy Arm Fjord is an unbelievable adventure that needs to be on your bucket list!!!  Celebrity and the Solstice were outstanding in presentation and professionalism.  We have sailed on most of the major lines and none were up to the standard of the Celebrity Solstice.  The ship was extremely clean and well kept.  The staff was well trained and I did not experience or see any upselling on this cruise.  It was all about our experience and they made sure we were treated with respect and felt honored to be a guest on this ship.  They had two things that I have not seen before and that was an actual green grass lawn that was almost an half acre on top as well as a corning glass blowing exhibit that was entertaining and very different from most activities.  The crown jewel of this trip was the trip up Tracy Arm Fjord.  I have never experienced such pristine natural beauty as the few hours we traveled up the Fjord.  The ship traveled slowly through green aqua waters with blue crystalline icebergs floating by.  The cliffs on both sides of the ship were caressed with wispy clouds and multiple waterfalls were always visible as we moved deep into this undisturbed land.  The Captain even silenced all external electronics and narration so the passengers could absorb the natural beauty of this national treasure.  Ketchikan and Juneau were also very interesting but on a very different level.  We were not able to dock into Skagway as the winds were over 65 knots and safety of the ship was the Captains top priority.  The ships staff was able to quickly put together an amazing agenda of entertainment to cover the extra day at sea and was also a tribute to the outstanding crew of Celebrity.  You will not be disappointed with this choice.
