Exceeded our expectations

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver
First off I like to thank all the celebrity employes for making this vacation wonderful!

Cabin- We had a inside cabin with family across from us in a balcony. Cabin was good size lots of storage space for your stuff to go. The Balcony was very nice! I would recommend it to anybody, just make sure its not on deck 9, their is an over hang which blocks some of your view. Room service was quick and pretty good cant complain there, the bathroom was a little outdated for the inside room but the balcony seem to have been updated. Yes there is rust in some parts of the balcony but really people why should that bother you? Your looking out into the ocean not the ship.

Ship- Overall the Mill was nice, not great. It seem to take a little longer to get around to knowing your way around. The main atrium was the biggest disappointment not very "eye popping" like other ships kinda boring. The Cosmos is a great place to sit and watch the ship leave port.

Food- The biggest More part of the cruise! :p The buffet was not very good at all, would recommend eating in the main dinning room for lunch and breakfast if you can. Dinner in the metropolitan made up for the buffet. Every night dinner was spot on! Our servers were amazing Ranjit and Mary were unbelievable the made the experiences that much better. The drink waiter was ok she seem to skip our table every night, maybe because we had a few drink packages idk? I would recommend the drink package, it was very nice and made the cruise that much more relaxing, no signing paper or showing your card all the time!

Entertainment- Was good but the cruisers were the boring part. One of the bands was fun and sounded great but nobody every really danced. Yes I know this is not a Carnival party ship but still if your looking for more of a younger crowd go with RCL or Carnival.

Excursions- The highlight of the cruise!! Ketchikan we went fishing and caught quite a bit and the captain said it was a slow day, you could ship your fish home for $89 but we chose not to. We wished celebrity would stay longer at Ketchikan, lots to see not enough time. Icy Straight Point, we did the zip line and it was awesome!! So much fun! The ride alone is very pretty to get there. Would highly recommend doing. Juneau we went to Mendenhall glacier which was neat. Skagway was by far the best place! We did the helicopter which is unbelievable, words can not describe what we saw, if your going to spend on one thing let it be this! Hubbard Glacier was a big disappointment. Get there wayyyyyy to early in the mooring and spend an hour there, which it took to get close to the glacier and then we just turned around a left very disappointing.

Overall, my family and i enjoyed our cruise and would recommend the Celebrity Millennium to our friends. Less
