An awesome cruise.

Sail Date: August 24, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was absolutely beautiful, the public areas were spacious and never crowded so we were able to enjoy every part of the ship. The food was excellent, every meal from the endless buffets to the gourmet meals served in the dining room we were never disappointed. The staff and crew were very attentive and eager to please. Our shore excursions, which we booked directly through Celebrity prior to sailing were a bit more expensive than if we waited to book while in port, but it was worth every penny. We were off the ship and on our tours on schedule and each excursion was better than we expected. The embarkation, shore excursions and debarkation processes were very organized.

The only complaint I had was regarding our stateroom. Our room had a connecting door, and although we could not see our neighbors, we could hear every word spoken. One of them had a cough, which kept us up most nights. Consequently my husband and I felt we had NO privacy, we would talk in whispers and tried to be very quiet...it was extremely uncomfortable. Guest Relations solution was to have our cabin attendant put masking tape around the door, which was no help at all. Because we were at full capacity they were not able to move us to another stateroom. If you prefer privacy, I would strongly recommend that you have your booking agent request a stateroom no connecting door.

The only other problem was the computer services on board. If you plan to do business or stay in touch with relatives and friends through email, I would strongly recommend that you bring your own laptop. The service is very slow and costly.

Pros: The ship is absolutly beautiful, it was so easy to find our way around and although we were at full capacity, we never experienced crowds in any of the public areas.

Recommends Celebrity Summit? No.

Ketchikan, Alaska
The day we arrived in Ketchikan it was raining and foggy. We were supposed to take a seaplane tour but it was cancelled due to weather. What a dissapointment, we had heard the seaplane tour was spectacular. The town had the usual shopping, which had not interest to us. This was not a good day for us.

We did the White Pass Summit Club tour. We boarded the White Pass Railroad right at dockside. The train was very comfortible and the views were spectacular. They did a champagne toast at the summit and we sipped on champagne all the way back.

I would recommend the helicoptor tour. We flew over four glaciers and landed on one of them. Walking on the glacier was truly an experience we will never forget.

Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
This was a very small little town, the port was really beautiful. I would recommend the Whale Watching excursion. Our guide took us to a spot where we saw 6-9 whales. They came so close to our boat we could almost touch them......this was a WOW experience. We got some fabulous photos and video.
