7 Night Alaska Tracy Arm Fjord (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 15, 2016
Ship: Celebrity Solstice
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago

-While the service, entertainment, and crew were great, dining was very disappointing. Unless you upgrade to one of the seven pay extra restaurants you can only eat in the buffet or at night in the main dining room. The buffet is crowded, it's difficult to find an open table, and if there are just 2 of you it's -one waits while the other gets food- shuffle to keep the table. Jostling by strangers for food and the buffet fare got old real fast. The main dining room often served foods we didn't care for, which we left on our plates.

-We loved our cabin & terrace and sleeping with the door open to the sweet Alaskan air and sounds of the ocean.

-We were sorry that we didn't get to cruise the Tracy Arm Fjord due to ice.

Very comfortable!

Ship Tip

Book a midafternoon flight home rather than morning if you purchase a transfer. It's less hectic.

The captain said there was too much ice and did not take the ship there. Instead we went to Endicott Arm.

Crowded!!!! Around 20-30 buses at Mendenhall Glacier. Ride the tram up to Mt. Roberts instead, hiking trails, restaurant, nature center, gift shop, and great view.

Small village feel, things to do and see for free, such as short hiking trails. Cute shops and places for treats.

Whale watching with Orca Spirit was fabulous.
