Compared to previous Celebrity cruises this one was very bad. I'm amazed that some guests on this cruise found it to be very good. I suppose everyone has their own standards.

Once again comparing the food on this cruise with other Celebrity cruises the food was very ordinary and the portions were noticeably smaller.

The ship is showing its age. The worst part of it was the beds. They arched in the middle which made it difficult sleeping. I believe they put a support in the middle to correct a sagging problem. The mattress was obviously very old.

The entertainment was not particularly good especially the magician. Very mediocre at best.

We cruised Alaska on two other occasions so we past on the excursions this time.

Serious, we are convinced Celebrity has cut way back on their staff, food & entertainment quality due to the recession. Not good since we still paid the same as we did on previous Alaska cruises. In our opinion this trip was so bad that we are rethinking if we want to take another chance with Celebrity. I don't thing so. I can't understand how some guests on this ship can give them a good grade. The only good thing about this trip was our Room Attendant . She was the best we have ever had without a doubt.
