Captain Taso Kafetzis is the best captain ever – very involved with his guests. He kept us informed and narrated highlights of scenery points, etc. I overheard that he actually drove a tender to/from the port. I saw him at the ... Read more

7 night cruise on Millennium with a 6 night post cruise tour ending in Fairbanks. We booked an Aqua 1 on the aft #1138 for the views - the best decision ever. The views were priceless from this balcony, you can lay in bed and watch the ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise and my husbands 7th and our 3rd with Celebrity and we weren't disappointed. We had already sailed aboard the Solstice 2 years ago so we basically knew what to expect. We arrived in Seattle a night before the ship ... Read more

We purchased a Deluxe Veranda cabin, with the Classic alcohol package and the specialty dinner package. As a 10x cruiser, we never felt more pressure to purchase upgrades or less welcome that we didn't purchase a suite or higher. First ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise to Alaska for the Seattle to Seattle route, as we have relatives there, and the incentives were out the roof. Alaska was beautiful , and Tracey Fijord incredible as anticipated. The furnishings in the public ... Read more

Overall, we were very pleased with this cruise. Our previous experience was with Norwegian, and I would say the two lines are pretty equal, with Celebrity having slightly better service but Norwegian having better ... Read more

We have always wanted to do a cruise to Alaska and to combine this with a trip on Rocky Mountaineer. At last we have done this great trip. We booked through Iglu Cruises who arranged everything perfectly. Our first night was at Pan ... Read more

It took over three hours for us to board the ship from the time we arrived at the port. Not a good start. Most of the delay was caused by the Celebrity checking in system and this was then exacerbated by the US Homeland Security. The ... Read more

This was the second stage of our B2B cruises of the Pacific coast and Alaska. This was a bit of a disappointment bearing in mind we were now in the Royal Suite as oppose to the Concierge class we had in the first stage. First of all ... Read more

Overrated Inside passage from Seattle. Nice scenery from our balcony but you are never going to get an Alaskan experience without buying pricey shore excursions. Most everything in Katachan, Juneau and Skagway is either owned or controlled ... Read more

We arrive at least a day early to prevent airline delays from affecting departure. Seattle is a great city to explore. This trip, one day was sufficient to revisit the sites. Surprisingly, the city infrastructure is not prepared for ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, and because of the incentives they were offering. We did a 3 day land package first. This our 3rd Celebrity Cruise, and the quality of each one has steadily slipped. The hotel in Fairbanks was ... Read more
