NOT worth the higher price! Buffet had limited hours - opened at 7 am and Noon. What if you are awake before 7 am? Too bad unless you want a Continental Breakfast. Pool closes at 10 pm. We had a lot of noise in our cabin from chairs on the deck above us, starting at 6 am and usually ending about 10pm. Food selection was not impressive to me and they seemed disorganized. Sometimes "food" items would be present others not, ie cheese - here today not tomorrow. No butter for baked potato, oh, you can find it in the back dining area - but I am not in the back area. You will have to go get it, now - food is cold from searching for items. I have been on 21 cruises and this not worth the price. Very disappointed with this line and don't care to ever cruise with them again.

Breakfast opened at 7 am although most folks were awake well before that. Oh yeah, they do have a continental breakfast before 7 am but we want real food please. Then - lunch opens at Noon, why not 11:30? Many food items seemed to be out of place. Butter and cheese for a simple baked potato were placed far apart causing you to search for stuff you wanted at different serving lines. Now - your hot baked potato is no longer hot, and your meat selection is warm, not hot. Very disorganized although the staff was friendly and tried to help.

My room steward was great.

Limited activities aboard and the pool closes at 10 pm although you are on vacation. Closed due to noise? Really, how about you close the deck above my room! :(

Book excursions privately is my advice since they are cheaper.

Great Alaska trip though, had lots of fun. Will try to avoid Celebrity again. I have been on NCL, Carnival, and Pacific Princess and this was NOT one bit better, only cost more.
