Celebrity Millennium Cruise Review by rpattyn
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Inside Stateroom 9
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.

Icy StraitWe took a walk through the woods and along the nature trail after exploring the shops etc. at Cannery point and then walked into Hoonah and back - it was nice to get on land and take a good walk and it was a nice flat walk with lots to look at.View All 330 Icy Strait Cruise Port Reviews

Bering Sea Crab Fisherman's TourThis was an awesome experience especially since we are 'Deadliest Catch' fans. The crew were a constant entertainment and everything that they showed us was very informative, we loved the constant stories that they shared with us, the glimpses of local life and life aboard was fascinating and they even kept us warm with heaters above us. This is a must do excursion in my mind.View All 117 Bering Sea Crab Fisherman's Tour Reviews

VancouverWe stayed overnight in the Holiday Inn Airport and highly recommend it .. the staff were friendly and the bed was the most comfortable that I have ever slept in. Tip: take the free shuttle from the hotel back to the airport and pick up the Sky train at the airport for the trip to the cruise port, paid just over $13 USD for the both of us - well worth it as it is a quick, easy, very economical and comfortable way to get to Canada Place.View All 644 Vancouver Cruise Port Reviews
