Review summary

This is my 2nd Cruise to Alaska and I have enjoyed each one for different reasons. I would definitely Cruise with Celebrity again. Not disappointed other than the spa experience.

Embarkation

fast and easy

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate at 3 speciality restaurants Murano was my favorite, cost more money but well worth it. Plan on dining with them 2 1/2 -3 hours. Not that they were slow, it's all about the courses and presentation of the meal. Anytime dining is the way to go for the main dining room or the buffet. If you go to the Buffet and go away hungry then that's your fault. The Dessert bar was out of this world. The Chef did an outstanding job as well as presentation of the desserts.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
I went to the spa, did not have a good experience there. Try to up sale you on everything and then the massage therapist burnt me with HOT oil. That night had back ache and numbness and tingling down leg so didn't sleep well and the next day had a horrible neck ache. Otherwise I did not do any activities on board as I went on the cruise to attend a CME conference

Cleanliness, comfort and bathroom was great. Need to have more power outlets only two and that was not enough and none were in the bathroom or beside the bed to charge your phone. I brought a power strip that helped.

Ship tip

Take a power strip for electricity

Disembarkation

do Valet check out. It doesn't cost any extra, you don't have to worry about your boarding pass or luggage as the cruise ship does all this for you. I was pleasantly surprised and will go no other way in the future
