Itinerary: Alaska

We had an excellent time and were impressed with the ship's decor and service. As noted in this site's review, the food was good, but not great - we weren't "wowed". Our cabin was the standard cabin with balcony and we found it perfect - spacious enough and very comfortable, with very good storage spaces.

Public Areas
The public areas were so well designed we rarely felt like we were on a ship with 1800 other passengers. We especially liked the aft bar, mainly because we were lucky with warm weather throughout the cruise. After morning shore excursions, most of our afternoons were spent here enjoying the sun, a good book and the view.

Food and Service
The food was OK, not great. We did visit the Normandy and that was the best meal on board. We were disappointed in the quality of the food in the main dining room and only ate there twice. Breakfast and lunch buffets were good, we like the daily pasta bar and the Casual Cafe was a nice alternative to the main dining and the Normandy for dinner.

Our cabin was excellent. Standard cabin with a balcony, on deck 9 and midship which was an excellent location. The woodwork in the room was beautiful. We had a couch and desk, though getting around those to the balcony was a bit of a squeeze. The twin beds were pushed together to make a queen and we couldn't tell the difference.

We did not attend any shows. The only entertainment we heard was in the Rendezvous lounge and near the Casual Cafe before dinner and we thought they were both pretty awful. Celebrity could use improvements in this area.

Our shore excursions were perfect. We chose 3 active excursions (2 bike rides, 1 sea kayaking) and a whale watching. There were all excellent, fun excursions. We would do any of them again. The health club was spacious and has very good equipment.

Who Goes
We met quite a few very nice people. Ages were all over the map from families with children to retirees.
