May 2015 - Celebrity Solstice to Alaska - Inside Passage
The Celebrity Solstice is a very elegant cruise ship. I loved that we could go onboard earlier as part of the Concierge Level and that it was a blue sunny day and warm in Seattle meant that since we carried on for ourselves bathing suits and didn't have to wait for the baggage, we enjoyed the deck almost all to ourselves to start off a terrific cruise.
We enjoyed three specialty restaurants, all great. Saw great Hot Glass shows, a Reidel wine glass tasting, Wine and Food pairing dinner for our Anniversary in the Tuscan Grille, and met wonderful passengers all along the way.
A day up and a day back with an evening in Victoria set the stage well for the more remote winderness. I even climbed a glacier! All in all, it was a terrific time. Miss Amanda was great who told us about our destinations (she was a riot), and Brett the naturalist who was great sighting and telling us what we were seeing in the Tracy Arm Fjord.
I have to also point out that the staff everywhere was attentive and smiling, always!
I want to thank also my travel agent for United Cruises Aimee Kimbell which was the best travel agent ever and guided us with the best information to have a wonderful 20th Anniversary!
One thing that might have improved it, would be some better movies, ones that are more recent and in the theatre or maybe some oldies but goodies.
Thanks again, Vivian (and Rich)
