Celebrity Staff Worlds Apart!

I planned this cruise last October (2016) as an 80th Birthday Surprise Gift to my Mom. I specifically chose this cruise because of the roundtrip in/out of Seattle and the itinerary. As I had booked a suite, I knew ...

Very Nice

Had a wonderful time on a great ship. Stayed in Cabin 7199. Very nice, no complaints but 1 deck higher would have been perfect. Food in main dining room was very very good. No need for specialty restaurants. ...

We love cruising, but this was not our favorite.

We wanted to return to Alaska 32 years after our previous cruise. Ship was acceptable, a little worse for wear. Dining was disappointing, especially the specialty restaurants. Bars were adequate, and Martini Bar ...

Service and quality! Caring for clients! A welcoming atmosphere!

My wife & I had our first experience on the Millennium when it stayed at the dock in AK. The defenseless dock check-in worker put four handicapped people right on the ship even though over 2800 crazy screamers were ...

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. ...
