Great cruise to Alaska!

I was worried that we might be bored during our two days at sea, but The naturalist they had on board the Celebrity Solstice, Brent Nixon, was so entertaining and so knowledgeable that he not only made the time fly by, but he enhanced the time we spent on excursions with what we learned from him. I can't imagine going on a cruise to Alaska without him. The nightly entertainment was okay, not great aimed at the younger audience that was on this cruise, not us. Getting our bus back to the airport after disembarking in Seattle took hours, but I assume that is the ports fault, not the cruise lines.The tour to see the Sled dogs in Skagway was a highlight. The wildlife cruise in Juneau could be skipped.

Coming from the east coast, remember the time difference is four hours to Alaska. We had booked late seating and then realized we couldn't stay up that late. Everyone wants to eat early even if you go for select dining so I would recommend booking early seating if you're from the east coast.
