My husband and I previously cruised to Bermuda and Alaska, and had such a horrible experience the second time (on Norwegian) that we didn't do it again for 15 years. I'm glad we have it another shot, because the Celebrity Millennium was wonderful, especially post-revolution. We stayed in the Sky Suite and the service was impeccable. Ramir, our butler, Elvie, our stateroom attendant, and everyone at Luminae and the Retreat Lounges were always there with a smile. My child loved the Camp and begged to go there every chance he got. The nightly entertainment was okay, save for the one Russian acrobatic team which was really spectacular. The service at Luminae was amazing, and the good was very good but nothing memorable stuck out. We had our sommelier choose wines for us every night and he did a marvelous job. The Retreat Sundeck didn't get much use, since the weather was rather cool, but we did get great views of Hubbard Glacier without having to jockey for space. I would've like to see how the Sundeck and Lounge got used in the other cruises, because they were both fairly empty all the times we were there. I wasn't a big fan of desserts/sweets served in the MDR or Luminae, but surprised myself at Cafe Bacio because their stuff was great. This cruise is highly recommended. Read Less

We did the cruise and the land tour following the cruise. We loved the cruise...everything was top notch. We had a couple of small issues with our room, but the room steward, Sejaz quickly resolved them for us. Room was comfortable and well laid out. The food outstanding and the entertainment was great. We had a fabulous time! For excursions, we highly recommend the helicopter/2 hour glacier trek in Juneau and the whale watch excursion in Icy Strait Point. Hubbard Glacier was breathtaking. We did sign up for the Persian Garden as an additional add on since we were not staying in an Aqua class room. Unfortunately that was a little disappointing without the individual loungers in the relaxation room which is what we have had on other ships... it’s now a communal sofa/waiting area. My husband wasn’t happy with the steam room, which wasn’t hot enough for him and the hot tubs were not hot enough for him as well. In hind sight, we shouldn’t have spent the money on the Persian Garden, we didn’t use it nearly enough to justify the extra cost. The land tour was good, but wasn’t as good as the cruise... Our tour group was plagued with the flu running its way through the group and by the third day it got me and my husband. That put a bit of a damper on the tour, but even with that we had a great time. Denali and Talkeetna were the highlights of the land portion of the tour. It was the trip of a lifetime for us!

After reading some reviews bellow, I felt I should write... We are veteran cruisers, and this was our second cruise to Alaska. We loved the newly renovated and redecorated Millenium. It was a most pleasant surprise to see the bright, light and airy colors everywhere - light blues, light greens, light gray... Our balcony stateroom on deck 8 was very comfortable, the bathroom modern , spacious and beautifully done with a big glass door walk in shower! No more stepping into an old tired tub and touching a yucky plastic curtain...) Smart, innovative touches were everywhere, especially in the buffet dining room where we ate breakfast and lunch . There too these bright color scheme creates a happy, bright atmosphere. They set up several round designated stations , for example for building your own salads..much more efficient than long lines.... The smartest thing is the long narrow high counter type tables along the windows. We loved sitting facing the ocean, instead of watching people eat. We spotted a group of orcas at lunch one day ! Fun. The food in the buffet dining room was so varied and plentiful! So many delicious choices, all tastes are accommodated there. Frankly, we found the food there more tasty and attractive than in the dining room... Yes, they try to get you to order paid drinks at every occasion there, but if you lay down the little plastic drink advertisement, they will leave you alone, assuming someone already asked you...And yes, on sea days it can get crowded up there. We had an assigned table for 2 in the main dining room and we just walked to our table, no fuss...no waiting. The service in the main dining room was correct and polite... The food was fine, tasty, nothing exceptional. If you watch your weight the miniature appetizers will delight you... We loved the performance by two American Ballet Theater dancers one evening. They danced part of the grand pas de deux from Swan Lake and another more modern piece. That was the extent of our interest in the entertainment, which is the same stuff on all cruise ships. On the other hand, they had a lovely knowledgeable naturalist on board and her daily lectures and presentations were excellent - intelligent and interesting. They were very well attended too. Wonderful, I learned a lot from her. I also attended the first IPhone and IPad tricks class by the Apple store person on board (yes, there is an Apple store ) and it was great. Unfortunately, the rest of his classes had a fee. They had a violinist and a cellist on board and I got excited for a moment , thinking that there is a bit of classical music in some corner of the ship... Nooo, they had a boom box that they accompanied... Too bad... The embarkation and disembarkation were super efficient and streamlined. We carried our luggage off the ship on our own. The crew on this ship seemed happy and content . That is a good sign , as on some recent cruises on another cruise line they were positively depressed. These people work very hard, very long hours, and one hopes that they are decently treated and paid. To me it is important. Read Less

Just finished Vancouver to Seward trip on Millennium. Can't say enough about the Revolution refresh. Gone are the browns & oranges, replaced with neutrals & lighter colors. Plenty of USB & power outlets, lots of new storage. We actually had unused drawers & shelves. Great naturalist on this trip, very passionate and knowledgeable. Frequently helped us spot wildlife from Cosmos lounge. The new Oceanview was much improved. The way they have spread the food stations makes it seem more spacious and less congested. New color scheme & furniture is very nice, as are the multiple hand-washing stations. We were on the 11th floor Aqua, sunset stateroom. It's the best for Alaska, 180 degree viewing all the time. Not sure why, but we all felt the ship was more spacious, rarely a crowd. For me, at 6'5", the shower was tight, but the new bathrooms are very nice. Bonus - perfect weather, very unusual! Read Less

Overall perspective: We had a phenomenal time. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Our critiques are real, but ultimately we really enjoyed ourselves. Ship Condition: If you look hard, you can tell the Millie is not a new ship. There are some layouts that clearly would not be picked if you were building a new ship (Qsine blocking a stairway, sushi on 5 in the middle of a wine bar). In other places there is a lot of paint trying to cover corrosion. I would not, however, describe her as worn or tired. She is in good shape and I think the revolution likely helped substantially. We liked the “old look,” but we like the “new look” too. The new colors are much brighter and it did not feel like ikea to me. Stateroom perspectives: We stayed in CS 8106. Overall, we were very pleased with the room. It looks nice in person and met our needs for the cruise. There were, however, “Kelly Hoppen” functionality issues in both our room, my parents room, and the retreat areas. On the balcony, there were only two seats, a table, and a couple of monolithic footrests. There was easily room for a third chair, but that request was too much for my stateroom attendant (who was otherwise very good). Having the aft balcony of the pair was nice and we spent substantial time out there. No USB outlets were available in our room that I could find. The only bedside plugs were stolen by bedside lamps. Limited plug availability in the rest of the room. As previously stated on the boards, the couch faces the TV instead of the great windows. I “accidentally” rotated it 90 degrees the first morning while everyone was asleep. Based on the carpet color and cleanliness underneath, I would guess I was the first one to do this in 8106 on Millie since revolution. This blocked one of the many underused cabinets, but was otherwise great. Staff didn’t say a word about it but very quickly vacuumed. My parents stayed in SS 8117. They had the now infamous chair that doesn’t slide under the desk. There were some orange highlights they did not enjoy, but it was not offensive to myself or my wife. The blue highlights in our CS were nicer. The couch on their balcony was nice, but there is a pole that is not ideal. We needed that stateroom to support our configuration, but I would not pick it if I had more flexibility. My kids were in 8119. There were more plugs and USB outlets in their room than in my room and my parents room combined. The stateroom attendant for 8117 and 8119 was Jay. He was great. At some point my 9 year old was about to get lost on the ship and Jay rescued him. I will try to find some pictures, but there have been previous photos on the boards of both 8117 and 8106. In general, Kelly Hoppen furniture is poorly thought out from a practicality perspective. Thankfully there are hundreds of throw pillows available and they work quite nicely at making oddly shaped chairs more comfortable. Dining: Most nights we ate at Luminae and loved it. Rolando was our server and he was phenomenal. Menu was varied and we were able to find something enjoyable with each experience. Even when we had the full party of 6, we did not have to wait for a table. At the strong suggestion of the maitre’d Bochi, we did try to aim before or after the big rush of 6:30 or 7. We definitely noticed improved service when it was less busy, but we weren’t terribly dissatisfied at any point. Wine by the glass with the premium drink plan is just awkward. If you want to get better than the equivalent of $10 a bottle stuff (retail price), it gets frustrating. The “sommelier” was nice but seemed to struggle with getting me things in the $12 to 20 dollar a glass range. One night I ended up getting a bottle because I was annoyed by his selections. He also seemed a little too revenue-driven. For example, the Caymus others have gotten for $55 a bottle when on the drink plan, he offered to me for $90. We also ate at sushi on 5. I have no strongly positive or negative perspectives on the experience. I would probably do it again if the cruise was long enough, but I found myself questioning the value. We worked our butler, Nelson, to the bone with room service breakfast. They weren’t perfect-a couple of times a side dish got forgotten. The one time it was “important,” Nelson noticed on his own and got it fixed. To their credit, I made it hard. Every order form had special requests. My wife likes a latte- handwritten in every day. A bowl of berries for the kids handwritten in every day... Bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese handwritten in one day... to their credit, they did it right with capers and red onions. Room service breakfast is never going to be as good as fresh in the restaurant, but when you have a wife and kids that sleep like mine, it really made our vacation much less stressful and I am thankful for it. The OVC/buffet food was quite good for a buffet. It was not fancy like Luminae, but there were plenty of options and the international options were nice. I was pleasantly surprised with the food. Conversely, the service was inconsistent. For bar service, they should just set up convenient bar stations and let us go get our own drinks. Trying to do it with inadequate staff is a recipe for frustration. More than once, I just went to the closest bar to get my own drink. Similarly, at one point my daughter spilled pasta all over the place. No one noticed or helped even after we notified them. Thankfully there was no sauce on it... Lastly, the ice cream station got overwhelmed and the scooper desperately needed backup. Conversely, the food stations were kept fully stocked and the staff that was available were almost entirely competent and kind. None of the the issues caused me to have a bad vacation! Suite life: We used both the retreat lounge and sun deck fairly extensively. We liked the personalized service. Mary, the lead bartender in the retreat lounge, was of particular note. She was smart, attentive, and good at mixing drinks and interacting with my kids. The sun deck is nice, but not world class yet. It seemed a little underutilized with the notable exception of the Hubbard glacier day. The staff there was nice, but it was a lot slower to get drinks or food. At times we would visit and there didn’t seem to be anyone there who did bar service, just someone who cleaned things up. A short drink menu of things they can turn around quickly with their local limited bar would help them and their customers. At one point my wife ordered a cosmo and that just about blew their minds. While a gin and tonic might come out fast, other drinks could easily take 10 minutes. Whirlpool temperature should be 5-10 degrees warmer too. On the Hubbard glacier day, it would have been a no brainer to have mimosas and bloody Mary’s circulating, but alas it was not to be. They did circulate warm pea soup and beef consommé or broth or something. Shore side concierge was very kind, but useless to me. I asked for the mini bar to be cleaned out and no kiwi, walnuts, or pecans to enter the room because of my daughters allergies. That was a fail on both counts (kiwi on fruit plate for room service). My children, being young, were able to partake in all the suite things gratis. Ports: Embarkation was awkward. Vancouver makes you do a lot of walking. Some of it seemed quite unnecessary. We had all pre-taken pictures, but the person insisted on retaking several of them. Security was very annoyed by my retake which was apparently quite bad. I found that humorous. I saw the “special delivery,” drop off for RS and PS, but there was no escorting aboard and the lines were equally short for everyone. Not that we really needed one. Instead I escorted my family to the retreat and to Luminae soon after. I got to visit the naughty room! The staff onboard was quite amused that it was called the naughty room. For some reason I had decided to lug along my kids white noise machine (marpac). It is literally a fan in a box, but that was baffling to the security guys. I tried them to get an electrician involved, but it wasn’t going anywhere and I had important drinking to do. We have apps on our devices that can be used in these situations! All of the main ports were suffering from the cruise ship profit-making apparatus. Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway all were overwhelmed with diamond stores and other tripe like that. Not sure why people buy diamonds on vacation from chain stores. Thankfully, Mother Nature was not far away. We found it very easy to get out and enjoy through many short hikes and excursions. In Ketchikan we took the Bering sea crab tour. Officially it was “on our own,” although the official celebrity tour cost more... they sat right next to us. If you booked through Celebrity, you got a sticker too! After lunch at Annabelle’s (an old brothel), we hiked the rain bird trail. Taxi up to the college parking lot and walk back to the ship. The last mile or so is on city streets, but downhill. You can have cab pick you up if desired. Internet describes it as “easy,” but be aware that rating is by people who hike a lot. With younger kids I would say it was intermediate. Icy Strait Point is unique. It is commercialized by the tribe, but only by local businesses. It is hokey, but in a nice way. We took a private tour through Hoonah Whale Tours that was phenomenal. An orca actually swam under our boat (boat was off & orca turned and swam towards us). It turned out the boat captain’s mom owned a shop in ISP. I would definitely take a private tour over those big boat tours if you can. That area in Alaska definitely seems to be better than Juneau or Skagway for whale watching. The nature trail on the property is very, very short and pretty short on nature too. Be aware they are building additional new docks. It appears ISP will be over-run next year. In Juneau we did the ship’s gold panning tour. It was cute, the guide was nice, and our 9 year old was happy. Amazingly, you actually can get flakes of gold out of the stream even today. We also did the Mt Roberts tram and hiked around on our own. Then we took a lyft to the hatchery, which is also good for kids and people who like salmon. Plan ahead- it is much less interesting when the fish aren’t running. Skagway we did the train ride and lunch at the brewery. The weather was rainier there for us, likely impacting my impression of the place. I had already done the helicopter tour thing, but if you haven’t, Seward is a good place to do it. Hubbard glacier was jaw-dropping. If you can cruise with an afternoon time slot (I think the southbound tours), your odds for better weather are improved, but we did fine. I certainly didn’t cruise away thinking “gosh I wish we had gone to glacier bay.” Seward disembarkation was easy from the boat perspective. The small bus transfer up to anchorage was a little awkward, but that was mainly my fellow cruisers’ fault. I will neither condemn nor praise the vendor. Afterwards, the guys went fishing for several days in Elfin Cove at Elfin Cove Resorts. It was a ton of fun, but their guides don’t have very much experience right now. I will refrain from doing a full review on cruisecritic. Travel: We had one of those cautionary tales about booking margin into your calendar. We had about 22 hours of margin to sail away in our planned schedule. Our first flight (Pittsburgh to Toronto) on Air Canada was cancelled due to a mechanical issue with the plane (a CRJ-200, well known in aviation circles for reliability issues). After much waiting on hold and standing in line, they were going to be unable to re-book us on any practical schedule that would assure us we would make the cruise. In a reminder of the value of flexibility, we saw how many flights happened between Toronto and Vancouver and rented a car on our own and drove to Toronto. Air Canada was then able to rebook us on a later flight the same day. We ended up about 8-10 hours late into Vancouver. Air Canada refunded the price of the Pittsburgh to Toronto leg after I submitted a request, but nothing beyond that. Read Less

We are frequent travelers but only our third cruise. We we found the ship to be clean, modern and with a friendly staff. We had an Aqua 2 class room on deck 11. Our steward Angelo was exceptional and friendly. The team of people that keeps the entire ship running and clean should be applauded, great job! We booked through CostCo which we really like. The app is promising that they have one but not great the wifi was ok. Food: Food at the Oceanview Cafe for breakfast and lunch offered a lot of options, and healthy options . The food and staff at the restaurant Blu were fantastic. Nia the hostess, Rei the waiter, Micky the jr waiter and the maitre d and the woman sommelier were also excellent and friendly and greeted us by name. Cafe Baciao for a cappuccino was good. We had the premium drink plan and we are not big drinkers but it was part of our package and included specialty coffee drinks. The bars were good with lots of high end liquor choices but unfortunately only a handful wine choices for white , red and usually one to 3 sparkling to choose from by the glass. One in each wine category was always the Celebrity branded wine. Otherwise even with the Premium package you need to buy the whole bottle of wine which would be wasted on us. If you like wine but wouldn't need a whole package you might want to check - i think they let you bring two bottles on board, you can drink in your stateroom or pay a corkage fee in a dining area. Activities were good - we saw the Motown, Broadway and another one we saw most of. All were good productions and entertaining. We were lucky with exceptionally sunny and warm weather which allowed us to use both pools. They also had a naturalist from Nat Geo on board Chelsea which was an added bonus who spoke about what you would or might see the next day which was really informative. We used the spa once and the gym which was a good size, well equipped and clean. Excursions. We booked two with Celebrity and one on our own. We booked on our own an extended heli trip with both dog sled and extra landing for "hike" with Coastal helicopters. We also did a whale watch in Hoonah (ISP) . We saw a family of Orca's, Humpbacks and Sea Lions) pretty cool. We also did a Canoe Wildlife Safari which included a hike. Good trip but not much of a hike , not much a Canoe paddle and not much of a lunch ( turkey sandwich ) but the Glacier and staff made up for that. For transportation back we did the train. When I asked the conductor he said it was a cruise ship train only. The train is more expensive than Alaska Rail . It is like another tour so that was great. We put our bags out the night before they take them from there. They drop you off at either the airport around noon and if you have a flight after (approx.) 3 pm then you move on via bus to the Eagen Convention Center. It looked like many cruise ships had large rooms reserved at the Center with staff to oversea you getting your luggage back. Our bags were tagged and waiting there. From here you will also be able to reserve your seat on a bus back to the airport with your luggage for your flight. I think you can leave your bags there until 6 pm. A real plus for us, since our flight was not until 8 pm we were able to leave our bags, explored Anchorage a little had lunch and then got the 5 pm bus back to the airport. Read Less

This ship is not too big not too small. Easy to navigate with plenty of elevators. The Crew is friendly and attentive. Food in all restaurants was great. Lobster night had full size tails all you can eat. Prime rib on two nights and it was very good. The buffet breakfast and lunch were large and plenty of good choices. Several Indian and Asian dishes as there were many guest from those countries on board. Pool side grill had dogs and burgers with really good french fries. We had the drink package which included many top shelf brands and plenty of beer choices and wine. Our balcony 7027 was clean and had plenty of storage. A night light in the bathroom is great. Hot water at all times. A large TV on the wall is great. But not a large amount of channels. Entertainment was great with the exception of one comedy act which was so so. A lot of energy and talent in all the shows. Cruise director Manuel was terrific. The bartenders at the Martini bar put on a great show of mixing drinks. The ship is very modern and light and airy decor. The trip to Hubbards Glacier was the highlight as the ship gets very close and then slowly turns 360 so everyone gets a great view. This is our 7th cruise and first with Celebrity. It was as good as advertised. We self debarked which went smoothly. The guest services people were terrific and helpful. The celebrity app works great. Only booked the White Pass train ride through Celebrity which was nice but pricey. Other trips were booked with other vendors. All the ports offer trips and tours for less. Read Less

Inside Passage has been on our bucket list for years and we came across this cruise at a local travel agent and couldn't resist it. The ship has recently been re-fitted and it really shows. Gone are the days of plastic shower curtains in a tiny corner shower, our inside cabin actually had a full size shower with a glass shower door which sealed perfectly. The toiletries come in big pump bottles so you don't have to mess around with taking toiletries with you or dealing with those difficult to handle little bottles. The cabin itself was beautiful and again much better than I had anticipated. There are lots of storage places conveniently located around the cabin and plenty of room under the bed to tuck away the luggage. Each day our cabin attendant cleaned in the morning and again in the evening, ensuring that everything was in perfect order and left a daily plan for activities each day and chocolates in the evening when he did the turn down. Towels were always replaced for the evening if they had been used during the day. The dining was better than expected and of course the first few days we went a bit mad trying everything but settled down once we realized that we could hit the buffet at any sort of odd hour and there was always something good to eat or snack on as the menu changed between breakfast/lunch/tea/dinner and late night snacks. The entertainment was of good quality and varied content with many 'Beyond the Podium' presentations which were really interesting and well presented. All of the staff are amazingly happy and you can tell that they enjoy working aboard this ship and that they are happy Celebrity employees in general. They even happily helped us with our strange requests during a scavenger hunt even though they didn't know what was going on. Embarkation and disembarkation were handled very well and we were greeted with a glass of champagne during our initial embarkation, that made us feel very special. We had lots of time to explore the ship while waiting for the rest of the passengers and the restaurants and buffet were open for us. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we booked a cruise for next year - we were never pressured with sales talk and in fact had to go and hunt down the sales people in order to book the next cruise - Celebrity is definitely our go to cruise line.

Our trip was a land and sea combination culminating in 7 night cruise down the Inside Passage. It was our first time sailing with Celebrity. The Celebrity Millennium had just been newly renovated. Decor was very modern with plenty of storage space. Aqua class afforded us access to the Blue restaurant, excellent food and even better wait staff. Oceanview dining room was convenient and offered many many choices. Entertainment was excellent! We liked being on a smaller ship. It sure made taking elevators a short wait! My only minor complaint was that you had to walk through the casino to get to the main theater. I understand the rationale but it created a sizable bottleneck that was difficult for both show goers and those who were using the casino. On boarding and disembarking procedures were very smooth. Would definitely choose Celebrity again if they were available for whatever destination we were searching for. Read Less

We just got back from the Southbound Seward to Vancouver Alaskan cruise on Celebrity Millennium. We loved every minute of it, from the time we embarked until we disembarked. The ship was lovely after the Revolution refurbishment, with everything clean and new. The main thing that made such a wonderful cruise onboard was the staff. We felt like we were "waited on hand and foot" as they say. Always had multiple staff members asking if we needed anything. Always a smile on their faces and a "good morning", "good evening" or "welcome back" after being gone for an excursion. The staff in all areas of the ship are fantastic! We enjoyed the Tuscan Grille especially and also Qsine. We had dinner two nights at Tuscan Grille and lunch one day at Qsine. All the specialty meals were delicious and like a 5 star restaurant. The food in the Oceanview Café we thought was good and there was a lot of variety. The MDR was our least favorite for dinner because the food was okay, but not great. The staff in the MDR were great however. We were told that we got the closest the ship had ever gotten to the Hubbard Glacier. I am not sure if that is true or not, but we did get really close and it was absolutely an amazing site to see. We loved all of the ports of call. We did excursions in each port. One through Celebrity - gold panning and salmon bake in Juneau which we really enjoyed. We did the White Pass Summit up to the Yukon through Chilkoot Charters in Skagway and it was amazing. Heidi our tour guide was fantastic. We did a whale watching tour in Icy Strait Point with Glacier Wind Charters and Teresa and Shawn were both fantastic to work with. We saw whales, sea otters, sea lions, puffins, bears and eagles and it was amazing to see all of this wildlife in one day in their natural habitat! In Ketchikan we did the 4 in 1 tour through Viator and went to Totem Bight Park for a really nice overview of the totem poles. We initially flew into Anchorage and took the Alaska Railroad Gold Star dome train from Anchorage to Seward. There are no words to describe the beauty that we saw and all of the wildlife - bear, moose, eagles and even trumpeter swans. We have traveled a lot and this is probably one of the best vacations we have ever had. The shear beauty of Alaska and how unspoiled it is, is just indescribable. It truly is a once in a lifetime trip unless you might be fortunate enough to get to go back. Read Less

We departed out of Vancouver. Embarkation was fast and smooth. We were on the ship within 30 minutes of the line opening. Once onboard were we able to explore the ship before our 11:30am concierge lunch in MDR. Overall the ship was clean and we loved the recent renovations that were done in dry dock. The crew were constantly cleaning throughout the entire cruise. We tried 2 of the specialty dining locations. Tuscan Grill was exceptional. Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was fantastic. We did not enjoy Qsine. The food was odd and the servers left me feeling stalked during service. The main dining room food and service was good. Most days we had breakfast in our stateroom which made for a perfect start to the day The cafe onboard was my favorite little spot. The servers there remembered us and our order. We also had a great time at the Martini Bar. I did get a hot stone massage onboard. I loved it and would recommend the service. Some would say the prices are high but it is a cruise so indulge a little. Some other parts of the cruise we enjoyed were the art gallery/art auctions, a few of the shows, bingo, trivia and the live music. The staff for the onboard shops were fantastic. We did have excursions booked each day we went in port. Ketchikan - Wilderness Exploration cruise and crab feast. The crab was delicious. We saw tons of wildlife on the cruise portion. Icy Strait Point - private whale watching tour with “Hoonah Whaling Tours”. Perfect time. I can’t say enough positive things about this little family owned business. Juneau - Dog Mushing camp was one of our favorites. We also did gold panning and salmon bake. These excursions did not disappoint. Skagway - 6.5 hour excursion to Kroschel Wildlife Center in Haines, Alaska. 4 hours of this was travel to and from location. The wildlife center was fantastic and we really enjoyed meeting all the animals and the staff at the center. Zimba our tour bus operator made our day with his personal journey story. After the cruise we did the Denali land tour. Be warned as we were not given clear information until the morning of disembarkation of the full day bus ride from Seward to Denali. Then the following day you are back on a bus for a day with a short train ride. We hope they change this for future tours to have more travel on the train instead of bus. Saving grace was the beautiful scenery. Overall we were not disappointed with our first cruise and would definitely sail with Celebrity again. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and price (first time cruisers!). The ship has just been redone in early 2019 and all the furnishings are new, clean, and comfortable. No problems at all with our cabin (other than the weird smoke thing which I mentioned below.) Dining: We mostly ate in the Oceanview Cafe (buffet) for breakfast and lunch and the Metropolitan (main dining room) for dinner. We didn't feel the need to pay extra for the specialty restaurants. Overall the food was very good. Lots of variety at both the buffet and the main dining room. Great service at both. We are foodies and so we found that there were a few dishes we had that were misses (for some reason most of the cakes we tried were extremely dry; also they didn't have a good selection of salad dressings) and a few things that were obviously cost-cutting (an appetizer of "scallops" was a single scallop sliced into four thin discs). But overall most things we ate were delicious and interesting and I loved the variety available. There is truly something to serve every palate on board! Entertainment and activities: We skipped most of the daytime activities as we were in port most days. We did notice that a lot of the ones that appealed most to us (like yoga class) had a fee attached which was disappointing when we already paid so much for the cruise. We went to the show in the theater every night which we really enjoyed. The singers and dancers put on three shows, a 70s themed one, a random "good vs evil" song and dance revue with modern songs, and a Broadway revue. The actual singers and dancers were very talented but the shows that were written for them were sometimes not great. By far the most successful show was the Broadway revue which was just singing and dancing with no lame storyline. There was also a show with Russian acrobats which was incredible and got the only standing ovation of the week. Also two comedians and an a capella group which were all very enjoyable. Overall we loved the night entertainment. We also went to some of the live music on board which was generally very good but sometimes a bit too much "soft jazz" for us. Service: No issues, everything was great! Loved having my room cleaned multiple times a day and getting a chocolate on my pillow every night. Ports and shore excursions: Well, this was the whole point of coming to Alaska and this was definitely the most important part to us. Suffice to say that we had an incredible time in each port, sometimes on our own and sometimes on Celebrity excursions. I'm writing a separate trip report on our days in port which you are welcome to find through my profile or on the Alaska forum. Overall one of the best vacations I've had and I'll definitely be cruising again! We had a great time on the Millennium and would definitely consider it in the future. Read Less

My husband and I cruised Celebrity over 20 years ago and we wanted to cruise Alaska. We chose Celebrity and the Millennium for the one-way itinerary and the long stays in particular Ports. This decision really paid off for our excursions. We live in Seattle and took Amtrak to Vancouver the day before the cruise. Our stay was at The Wedgwood Hotel and it was lovely. We had high tea at The Fairmont on the day of arrival and dinner in Bacchus , The Wedgwood's restaurant, it was amazing. The day of embarkation we chose to have lunch at the hotel and embark around 1:30. I feel that was a good choice as our lunch at The Wedgwood was peaceful and delicious. The Millennium's new decor is lovely and fits both our tastes well. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and efficient outside of customer relations, they did not seem engaged. Our room steward, Natasha, was especially outstanding. The food was a pleasant surprise. I had read negative reviews and was concerned but we found most all of the food in the main dining room quite good. We were assigned a nice table for two at the window. Per the cruise critic suggestions we always asked our server for recommendations and this worked well for all nights except one. I cannot speak to the specialty restaurants as we did not eat there. The wine sommelier was excellent and really provided some amazing wines to accompany our dinners. We do not like buffets so avoided that hectic experience. Walking through the buffet we noticed huge amounts of food being wasted and that is just a shame. Our excursion in Ketchikan was booked on our own for the crab feast at George Inlet. At Juneau we took the excursion to Tracy Arm/ Sawyer Glacier with Adventure Bound. It was a long day but no one should miss this. We saw two glaciers and seals, bears at the shore and calving, we got very close to the glaciers. Icy Strait Point whale watch was booked with Hoonah Whale Tours with only six people to our very small boat. We saw amazing breaching and bubble net feeding. Skagway was the train and we booked this through the ship as the price was the same. We finished our cruise with a Kenai Fjords tour with Major Marine tours followed by the train to Anchorage. We booked our tickets with Major Marine tours on our own and noticed that the cruise bookings were sat in the middle of the boat and we were sat at the window with their assigned seating. I highly recommend this one-way cruise with Millennium. Read Less

Celebrity does the best job of making your trip wonderful. We did the precruise tour from Fairbanks to Seward. We did basically the same precruise tour in 2016 with a few itinerary changes. The land tour was awesome as was the cruise. We always get an Aquaclass stateroom because we like to eat in Blu. Celebrity does a great job of making your trip seamless. As far as the wildlife goes, we saw more animals than ever. We saw a lot of humpback whales and eagles. We saw ptarmigan, hares, grizzly with cubs, a black bear, Dall sheep, sea otters, dolphins, moose and baby moose and probably more I can’t remember. We did a flight to Denali, rode the Whitepass railroad, a few whale watches and our favorite food quest; The wilderness exploration and crab feast. Every excursion was quite a great experience. The cruise itself was wonderful. We always book Aqua Class do we can eat in Blu. The service there is impeccable. And the food is excellent. Blu is open for breakfast and dinner. We usually did the buffet for lunch. It is also very good. The staff was most helpful and friendly all around the ship. And I must say the ship was immaculate as far as cleanliness. We did not attend any shows but instead would enjoy sitting in the forward lounge to enjoy the scenery while sipping a glass of wine. Or we would spend time in the casino. Most of the time we would be pretty tired from the excursions, so it was just good to relax. We did no enrichment activities or fitness. This was our third trip to Alaska and our second Cruisetour. I highly recommend that you do this at least once in your lifetime. Read Less

This was our first cruise and a celebration of our 40th Anniversary. The ship was wonderful - first voyage after retrofit. The crew was excellent. So many nice people working onboard. Went out of their way to help us first time cruisers. Loved the food, the fun - everything. The shows were excellent. Loved that there was a crew there that were counting animals - they taught me a lot about whale and animal watching. Can't wait to go again. We will go again for sure. This was such a fun time for us. We're so glad we chose this cruise to be our first. The only complaint would be the bathroom - the shower would flood the floor all over. There is no way of stopping the water from going everywhere. I know this bathroom was handicap accessible but this still wasn't workable due to water going everywhere. Need to come up with a better design. Read Less

Alaska has always been in the back of our minds. This cruise had all the must see ports for us and a great price. We lotteried for an upgrade and got it - Rm 8018. The veranda provided such a fantastic view of Hubbard Glacier and our Captain Theo got us close to it, just .6 miles from the calving ice! He happened to walk by our room just after his 360 degree maneuver as I was chatting with a most outstanding steward from GOA, Jose Fernandez who BTW is impeccable at his job and so very personable. I thanked Cptn Theo for this excellent show. He was so pleased that it worked out so well and that the sun came out allowing for crisp photos without zooming. A very nice man and not full of himself happy and grinning ear to ear. Who doesn't love a Captain with an even keel? The activities were also fun and at time were setup for challenging the crew to various games. My wife Laura was ping-pong tourney champ and received the gold (colored) X medal. She beat me and I got Silver. Oh, I must add she bagged 5 of 6 shots in the (cornhole) bean bag toss. One last game mention Giant Scrabble Game played on the floor of the Rendezvous Lounge. Our team of three beat the standing high score by 30%. Good food all around and if you are willing to experiment with some new tastes then you are in for a treat, plus all the standard fare of American comfort food. "I never found any corn tortillas though" said one gentleman at the taco bar. One last find and it was huge!! Bryan James may look like an average kid (30+ yo) but what an amazing talent and stage presence. He took so many requests and knew not just the words to sing but had amazing skill at guitar work that would usually take a band to make enjoyable. You name it and 95% of the songs he did with little effort. He was coaxed to sing a few of his own songs and as a songwriter he touched some hearts and there were some large flows of tears. Man, what talent. Personable and gifted; Bryan really allowed us feel his feelings as he wrote those heartfelt tunes. One more thing, he was always in key and no pitch issues. Kind of ironic as he gained a following that would show up at every set - sometimes 5 a day. We had quite a bonding through this music with the other "groupies". "Our next cruise MUST include Bryan James" was echoed from at least a dozen folk at his last day's performance. 6 STARS entertainment right there on a 5 star ship!! Read Less

We took this cruise as a gentle way to go home to Canada from Japan. (We had done an around Japan cruise with Windstar beforehand) It was very enjoyable, food great, staff lovely, entertainment good. There were alot of sea days together but we got a routine of trivias, podium talks, hot tubs and eating in the day as the weather was too cold to be out on deck much or in the swimming pool. The speakers were entertaining, one gave talks on major trials. Another did Buddhism history and meditation and a third did varied talks from Rasputin to dog behaviour. The afternoon progressive trivia was fun if you had got a team together. It wasnt too rough so seasickness wasnt an issue either. We did have to change our clocks forward about 6 separate times to be on Vancouver time by arrival butbetter than getting full jetlag. So repositioing was worth doing, although the stop in Russia was a waste of time except to stretch your legs! Read Less

As Millennium was the first ship to be part of the comprehensive fleet wide Celebrity refurbishment programme (February) I hope the following observations will be of interest. So, welcome to the Kelly Hoppen land of grey and brown. I didn’t think I would like it but it is ok for a couple of weeks. Whether this currently trendy combination of colours will stand the test of time does, of course, remain to be seen. It is smart but a touch boring for my tastes and I hated the wish-washy “art” in the cabin behind the bed. Anyway, the cabin ( Aqua, deck 9) was fine. The large round illuminated mirror was lovely. It added to the sophistication of the room. Comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and functional bathroom. No complaints (a small plumbing problem was quickly resolved). The food in Blu was mainly very good (a lot more hits than misses) and we enjoyed the environment. Service was good but the additional Aqua cabins do seem to have created congestion at peak times which is hardly surprising when Blu is still the same size. It is an issue which Celebrity need to address. The changes to the buffet were my favourite alteration to the ship. Great layout with use of counters and stools which were an efficient use of space and, also provided viewing places. The use of white tiles and logos worked well. The food maintained a good standard. The Sunset bar area at the back of the ship has received some criticism, although we thought it looked good and did provide enough shade. However, it was Japan in April and not the Mediterranean in July. All the lounges looked good with mainly perfectly sensible and comfortable seating. Sun loungers were all new and we enjoyed regular use of the Persian Garden. Musical offerings are important to us and I do appreciate that this is a subjective topic. The Cruise Director, Steve, was excellent. Lovely chap. The programming of music was perfect. Great use of the lounges at the right times. Bryan James, singer and acoustic guitarist, was a highlight. His sessions in Cafe al Bacio were particularly memorable. The house band, Bristol Fashion were very good and nice to talk to. The instrumental duo were also outstanding with a guitar providing so much more variety than the usually ubiquitous cello. The theatre was mainly used for music and comedy. We didn’t go to everything but those we did attend were good. Celebrity seem to be phasing out the costume singing and dancing extravaganzas which, personally, I welcome. The one we did see was incomprehensible and, for me, unbelievably tedious. Quizzes were run by one very good girl and two pretty awful chaps. I am sure they have talents but not in the quiz arena. This was the poorest aspect of the cruise. Fellow cruisers were lovely. It was one of the most sociable cruises we have taken and their company was much appreciated. Staff were outstanding. As helpful and friendly in all areas of the ship as one could ever wish to encounter. As mentioned CD Steve was really good, as was Captain’s Club host, Graeme, from Zimbabwe, who was never lost for a good story. Japan was a surprise. Amazing country, amazing people. We look forward to returning. The one ship’s tour (Mt. Fuji) we took was very good with an excellent guide. Everywhere else we made our own arrangements. It is difficult to rank cruises but of our 14 (9 Celebrity) this was as good as it gets. The combination of itinerary, the management of the ship by the amusing Captain Alex (and Captain Theo) and all their staff and the fact that Millennium was like a new ship contributed to our enjoyment of the cruise and our sadness that it had to end. In summary, the successful refurbishment was critical to the pleasure we experienced on Millennium. Read Less

Celebrity has done a great job on keeping the best of MIllenium's previous features and updating to a newer design. We were a little suspicious that it would be too much like the Edge (we were on the maiden voyage) but were very pleasantly surprised. The April trip around Japan was fantastic - cherry blossom time, Japanese hospitality, a variety of ports, and the best weather we could hope for. We generally did our own excursions because the ports provided shuttles to city centres and plenty of maps and directions from the Japanese and Korean (two stops) travel kiosks at each port. We did one Celebrity excursion on Jeju Island South Korea which was very good. Every port was a highlight for its scenery, city life or historic sites. The new Millennium retains most of the public spaces of the previous design but with a modern, sleek look. Service was always friendly and attentive and the food, while not excellent, was good. We attended all the nightly shows and they were fine. The ship has plenty of bars, lounges and places to relax in quiet, unlike the Edge. Our cabin was great - comfortable, spacious with a modern bathroom. Highly recommend this ship and this cruise. Read Less

We were very happy with this cruise and pleased that we were able to do it on Celebrity because most of their itineraries are pretty boring (that is the only thing they should learn from MSC!). We were lucky that we were on one of the first cruises after the dry dock "Celebrity Revolution" makeover. The ship - like all M class ships - was in bad need of a renovation and we were overall quite pleased with the results. One exception: the Retreat Lounge had horrible seating and no atmosphere at all. They really have to change the seatbacks of the sofas and the far to uncozy lighting, bring the frosted glass enclosure towards the "Art" Gallery back and kick those ridiculous toddler stools out, not even Kelly Hoppen MBE will be able to get her behind in. Staff was the best we ever had: everyone was greeting and cheerful. Food was good as always. Service at Luminae very personal and top notch. Read Less

We chose this cruise because of it's ports of call.We arrived at 4pm on the Saturday . The ship was not sailing until the following evening. There was hardly anyone boarding at that time so we took our 2 large suitcases and 2 cabin bags with us, so had all our luggage in the room by 4.30. Very smooth Embarkation. We were in Concierge Class Room 7184 with balcony. The room was almost the same size as most ships of the same 2000 passenger size we have cruised on. There were though some minor issues. The wardrobe was not long enough to take my wife's long dresses without the bottom being on the floor. A Strange glass cabinet next door to the wardrobe with 4 shelves was useless. One major issue was the aircon which was to the side of the bed and was blowing on us all the time and could not be switched off. Here is a tip , we had some seloptape and put paper over it and then no problem. Our cabin was kept spotless by our steward and he could not do enough for us. The ship had a full refurbishment just 2 weeks before the cruise and the lounges and bars were fresh with good new furniture. Overall the decor was excellent and clean. I am Gluten Free so was a little apprehensive about eating. I had nothing to fear. All breakfasts and lunches in the self service cafes were marked , so it was easy for GF, Lactose Free, Vegetarian etc to find suitable dishes. GF Pizzas and Pasta were available There was even a Gluten free Bread Station. GF Cake and Ice cream Station. There was plenty of choice and food was good. We ate on open sitting each night which suited us with our 2 friends. We always booked for 8.30 and had no problem getting in immediately. The food was first rate and the service was so friendly and efficient. Our Waiters and Sommelier could not help us enough. We used various bars. We had a Premium drinks package so had good French Champagne and good wine as well .The ice bar was always very busy and one waiter showed off various cocktail skills. The Cosmos bar for late drinkers was on most nights very busy with good entertainment. Although they did have this strange couple of nights with people dancing with headphones on. We opted out on these. We are not great on entertainment so only went 3 times to the theater but what we saw was good. Not much on the ship for the very active but we just like to relax. Internet was a ridiculous price so we just picked up WiFi at ports we called at. We rarely book the ships excursions, although we had did go on one to Ho Che Min which was good, especially the lacquer centre. 3 hours to roam round on our own was probably an hour too long.. Crossing the roads was interesting. We had a 2 day stop at Laem Chabang ( Bangkok) . This was a 2 a two hour trip , so as there were four of us we booked a Luxury premium Van with Blacklane Services. Luxury it was .We stayed at the Anantara Riverside in Bangkok which as the name suggests was on the river with it's own boat to take you across.This hotel was 5star and as good as we have stayed any where in the world. Bangkok is fascinating and certainly worth a visit. We had a tuk tuk for an hour. 60p. The Blacklane drivers were excellent .and drove sedately. Our trip cost us half of that of the cruise ship. Singapore , Saigon, Ho Chi Min and Halong bay are all worth visiting. Embarkation was as usual a little slow. There was another cruise ship embarking at the same time. Luckily the Taxi rank had so many taxis waiting it was only 30 mins from getting off the ship collecting our luggage and going through passport control to be off. To sum this up, the Food and Staff were excellent. Ports of call very interesting. We have cruised with Cunard and Royal Caribbean on similar sized ships and this was comparable. Read Less

We did a two week South East Asia cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong and were lucky enough to be on the second outing of the refurbished ship. We thought the new fit out was really nice in a understated way not to glitzy. All the staff are excellent and can't do enough to please. Ate in the main dining room and buffet which was generally spot on. Only real gripe is that some of the add on costs are very expensive like internet, excursions and drinks. If you drink i'd definitely look at pre-booking a drinks package as it'll work out cheaper than getting on board. Very interesting part of the world to visit and great to have the comfort of the ship to come back to after the hectic ports of call. Be aware other than Singapore, Halong and Hong Kong the other ports involve a considerable amount of travel to reach any places of interest. Read Less

The selection of food was fantastic , breakfast times are a bit hectic with people hogging seats and not moving on once they'd finished.

We had the most beautiful sole serve us every night in the Cafe al Baco bar , Hannah . What a gorgeous person who made us feel so welcome from the first day , thank you Hannah . We would also like to thank Annabelle who kept our cabin lovely at all times and was very king on the days I didn't feel well, thank you Annabelle . Our only grip would be the entertainment , if you liked an act you had to follow them around the ship to watch them , not much choose for the younger cruisers Read Less

Just came off the newly renovated Millenium. A great ship and a great itinerary in Asia. The common areas are beautiful - soothing decor colors and shiny new everything. Qsine and Sushi on 5 wonderful as always. The new areas for suites are beautiful such as the Retreat and Sun Deck. You feel special being in a suite. The service was wonderful - the Captain is so funny and we looked forward to his daily updates. The Officers and crew were very visible and friendly. Some couches are better for decoration than comfort. Signage is not good - no deck plans visible to look up where things are. The listings by the elevators are very confusing and don't tell you where things are but in which direction (aft and forward) you should go to get where you want to go. The redone suites have nice color schemes and more drawer space. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to the Far East, the ports of call were fabulous, the ship and staff were so helpful, they are genuine, and cannot do enough for you, it’s great being on a ship with lots of different nationalities, as it’s great to talk to people from so many countries, also the ship caters for many different food choices, the food is absolutely great in the buffet, lots to choose from. The shops onboard could be better, not much selection, the shows could have done with more variety, a couple of acts were not great, room for improvement, but overall we would go on millennium again. All our transfers were very good. I must say, the captain was hilarious, he was just so funny when he gave his announments over the tannoy, we did have about 5 shore excursions, which I must say were very informative, and not as expensive as some ships.
