We are 3 star HAL mariners, but I wanted to experience another cruise line and having heard positive things about Celebrity, decided to give them a try. With a couple of exceptions, we had a wonderful cruise and post cruise experience. ... Read more

I have nothing to compare this cruise with since this was our first cruise. First the positives.......the crew were fantastic! They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Edwin, our steward, was the best! Secondly, the ... Read more

Although 15 years old, Millennium is still in great shape, As always on Celebrity, they pay attention to details and everything went smoothly. Loved Tuscan Grille and Qsine; our main complaint was about the long lines to get into open ... Read more

This was our first cruise to Alaska after a number of Caribbean, Bahamas, Med, etc . This has been on our bucket list for quite some time so we finally went for it! We booked this about a year ago, and maybe 60 days prior to the sailing ... Read more

This cruise could not have been better. I know the cruise line had nothing to do with the weather but we had sun shine and beautiful views the whole trip. The staff were as accommodating as they would be pleasant willing to do anything ... Read more

We originally booked the Hawaii to Vancouver trip, but then decided we didn't want the flight to Hawaii and then home from Vancouver. So we switched to this cruise, so we could fly round trip to Seattle. We went in a day early, stayed at ... Read more

Great Alaska cruise in all - fine weather - plenty of wildlife - and the Millennium was as expected. We ate in Blu every evening and most breakfasts. I very much appreciated the ambiance of the room over MDR. Meals were generally good ... Read more

This is a mixed review. Overall the ship, the food and the activities were great. The staff were absolutely great. However, the Millennium is a problem for people dependent on wheels. The door sills or thresholds and all the joints between ... Read more

Just got back from my 7th cruise; 1st with Celebrity and first to Alaska. Starting off, I, 33, took my parents, 68 and 70, on this cruise to fulfill a dream they've had for 30+ years. They often talked about sailing to Alaska, but ... Read more

Well what could one find wrong with a seventeen year old ship? If you want to nit pick, lots but suffice to say it was a ship of dated ambiance and elderly business people. The activities were framed around those guests. I didn't have my ... Read more

We love Celebrity and liked the destinations on this itinerary. Millennium was disappointing. This is our 12th Celebrity cruise and our most disappointing. Our toilet stopped up 5 out of 7 days. The Ocean View was not up to quality of ... Read more

I Though that "Aqua Class" would be better... and was wrong! We traveled from Yokohama, Japan on a preposition cruise.. then to Alaska. Our first cabin on deck 2 had very little water pressure. The ship ran out of 'prunes' after ... Read more

I wrote 10 pages of notes about how bad our cruise was for my agent's reference. I guess I just had high expectations after hearing/reading such good things about Celebrity over the years. But from the 4.5 hours waiting to board the ship ... Read more

We've cruised over 50 times across different lines and twice previously on the Solstice. This time around certainly did not disappoint. Embarkation was a bit chaotic as there were three ships in port at Canada Place in Vancouver. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our travel agent said it was one of the best. So we thought we were really going to enjoy this cruise if it is going to be better than Norwegian, Princess and Royal Caribbean! Well very disappointed from Day ... Read more

This was our seventh Alaska Cruise, second on Celebrity. We chose this cruise for a variety of reasons.. 9 nights instead of the usual 7; it visited the Hubbard Glacier and Sitka, where we had never been before; and it coincided with ... Read more

This was our first cruise with celebrity and will be our last! The whole experience was disappointing. We have cruised with many cruise company's and this was by far the worst. The food was not enjoyable at all. The buffet was lacking ... Read more
