August 2016 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage
Yes, I would recommend this cruise to anyone. It was an amazing experience, one I will never forget. Our stateroom was well designed, and our "Unobstructed View" was truly that....nothing but sea and majestic vistas. My favorite onboard entertainment were the lectures included in the "Behind the Podium" series. They were so informative, timely as to what we could possibly view that day, entertaining and very well done. I did purchase the DVD's so I could share what I had learned with my family and friends. On the subject of "purchasing" items. We made the decision to not purchase any beverage packages. It was not a hasty decision, but one based on our consumption. Please, in the future, do not continue to try to sell additional packages, etc. It become very annoying. Also, we were cruising with friends from Australia, so we chose not to book excursions until we could all confer together. Again, this was something we could do, and we did not need any additional unsolicited prompting from staff. However, with that issued addressed, the staff were wonderful and our cabin stewards were very thoughtful and efficient. I had pictured sitting on our private veranda sipping coffee or wine and just absorbing the majestic beauty, and that is exactly what we did. Thank you for a lovely experience!
