May 2015 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage
Recently retired and never had been on a cruise before. We loved it. From the helpfulness of the person who booked our cruise through the onboard experiences and the destinations and excursions in Alaska, it was fantastic.The only disappointment was that it had to end. Celebrity Solstice was an excellent ship and cruise. The ship was clean and well kept. The balcony stateroom was more than I expected. I know we overpacked, but there was room for everything. Our room attendant was helpful and friendly and took care of us well. When our luggage didn't arrive as soon as expected, he went searching for it and delivered it piece by piece as he found it. He truly seemed to care about the people he was helping. The entertainment aboard ship was constant and high quality. The excursions, while pricey, were fun although sometimes too short. The food was great. We upgraded two evenings to specialty restaurants, the Tuscan and Murano, which were both great choices. The food and service made both special evenings. In the main dining room the food was also great and we got to meet people from all over the US and world and have a great time. We may try a different cruise line to compare, but Celebrity will be hard to beat.
