Firstly, this is only my 2nd cruise in over 10 years, so its hard for me to rate this, as have little to compare it with. We went through a recommended travel agent as I wasn't sure what needed to be done. Well, our agent did very little. I bought travel books and went on numerous sites (including this one) to see what I might expect. Embarkation and Disembarkation had me very concerned as I didn't know what to expect. I guess they went ok, although time consuming. I wish Celebrity had more information to provide people like me who are not familiar with cruises. I learned more from my table mates who were all seasoned cruisers. I thought the food in the main dining room was excellent, tried things I would never order in a restaurant. Our waiter and his assistants were wonderful.....Im now spoiled and insist that my husband now put my napkin on my lap for me. The buffet was OK...like a vegas buffet but so confusing, having to circle around to see what was out there, hoping no one takes my chair (literally my chair) while I was looking around. Our stateroom was nice and had the storage I needed although I was starting to get cabin fever after awhile. I thought all the musical entertainment was good, many good bands and vocalist, wish I had time to sit and listen to them all. The towns were all a bit more touristy than I would have liked, and sick of all the jewelry shops. We tried to go in only those saying they were individually owned. I would have to say the worse experience was listening to Mickey Live insisting that we had to be up before 5am to see the Tracy Arm pass, the glacier etc. If anyone listened to his briefing the previous night you would think you would be really missing out if you weren't there. He said he would be up there on the deck narrating, hot coffee passed around and warm blankets handed out. He talked about the ice bergs and the calving and all these other amazing things. We told our table mates (the seasoned ones) about it and they saw no reason to be up that early. Also Esperanza commented after his briefing that we would see the same things if we got up at 9am. She was absolutely right. We stupidly went up there, bundled up but still freezing and saw nothing we could not have seen right out our own veranda hours later. Actually our neighbors saw more on their veranda than we did. A big disappointment!!! No coffee....had to go down to constellation to get tiny cups, no blankets and no mickey narrating. My husband caught cold which put a damper on the rest of the trip. (oh and thank you celebrity for charging over $35 for a bottle of Nyquil and Dayquil.)

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A
Cabin 2A 7171
Cabin was fine, more storage space than I thought. Good location, near elevator but not noisy. Up to buffet, down to dining room.
