Celebrity Millennium Cruise Review by Dusty Teacher: Excellent Cruisetour
Overall Member Rating
We have just returned from a 11 night Celebrity Cruisetour to Alaska. The four nights before the cruise included Anchorage, Talkeetna, Denali, and Alyeska. All the hotels were good with Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge being even nicer than Hotel Alyeska. It had bigger rooms, more restaurants, better food, coin laundy and friendly, helpful staff.
Celebrity Millennium has an excellent captain who leads the staff to provide great service, good food, and outstanding entertainment. We had a very comfortable cabin with an attentive steward, excellent waiters in the main dining room, good food in the all restaurants including the Olympia where the dinner was outstanding.
The captain arrived early in each port allowing us to dock in good locations and enabling passengers to be on time for tours. Our tours included: Taku Glacier Lodge Flight & Feast in Juneau, White Pass Railway & Historic City Highlights in Skagway, Ice Straits Point, Hoonah Sightseeing & Tribal Dance, More and Ketchikan Explorer by Land & Sea. Each trip was outstanding. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and the scenery was great and each trip was worth the price paid.
Even though we had rain on a number of days, each tour was able to continue.
We still enjoyed ourselves and layers of clothing with rain gear made each trip possible.
The entire crew worked very hard to maintain cleanliness and always provided hand sanitizer to keep everyone healthy. They did a great job and we had a illness free cruise. Less

Port and Shore Excursions
The Tribal Dance was interesting. It was similar to the programs that are presented in Hawaii.
Mendenhall Gracier is a short shuttle ride from the dock. Drivers are polite, informative, and helpful. The walk to the glacier is very interesting and we saw salmon in the streams, outstanding plants, an excellent National Park Facility, and a beautiful glacier.
We took the White Pass Railway and Historic City Highlights. The train ride is fun. Breakfast was remarkable with tasty food, great presentation, and outstanding service. We were able to see Mt. McKinley from the train and got excellent pictures.
