  3. Celebrity Millennium
I have been sailing for over 25 years and regularly with Celebrity. We went to Alaska with Celebrity as I always had a good time and excellent value. This time, there were a few differences related to some 'changes'. There are now some exclusive areas on the ship. For example, unless you have a suite, you cannot access the front of the sun deck (the reintroduction of classes on a ship was quite a shocker). In addition, the refit has ruined the back of the sun deck with a giant screen playing cartoons all day and a steel structure blocking the view to the sea. The cabins were very nicely redone and room service was impeccable. The main dining room refit is quite 'different' but we got rapidly used to it. Service was outstanding in the main dining room, and the food went from outstanding to very average and it seemed a challenge to cook anything but shoe lather. The portions went from fine to microscopic. Tuscan grill was quite a disappointment, and I cannot understand why this is replacing Ocean Liner. The shows were very nice, and guest service was as good as it gets. Despite a few items over which we were disappointed, we still had a good time.

Exclusive areas - Food so so - Outstanding service - Nice Cabins

The cabin was very nicely renovated with plenty of storage room. It was also very well insulated. Room service was excellent.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Gold Panning
    We learned how to be a prospector where the Alaska and Klondike gold rush all started. The guide was as good as it gets.

    We had a very nice hike in the forrest, visited solmon creek, and went to see totems and a real expert sculpting a totem in from of us. We also saw lots of eagles. Our guides were as good as it gets.
