Question: When you tell someone you’re going on a cruise, what’s one of the first things they talk about?

Answer: The amazing (and abundant) food!

Whether our meals came from the buffet, the fine restaurants, or via room service (a godsend in the morning), we were never, ever hungry.

I have a friend who recently took a great Celebrity Alaskan cruise. She didn’t feel like the food was overemphasized, but wonderful. Her favorite part was the naturalist on board. Other, more experienced cruisers (this was her first) said Celebrity is their favorite line.
