Celebrity Millennium Cruise Review by ruggkatz
- Sail Date: June 2014
- Destination: Alaska
We took one shore excursion through Celebrity SW12 which is in Seward it's called Kenai Fjords Cruise with Lunch, Sealife Center & Airport Drop Off. Sealife center is awesome and the lunch on the boat was surprisingly good. The boat had two seating levels the first level had these nice square tables not too close to one another. So we get on the boat and they said "oh you're on the second level for Celebrity people." That's right we got our own level. Up there the seating was ridiculous they set up six foot tables with six chairs 3 on either side. If you scooched your chair back too much bang right into the guy behind you. I'm left handed there's no way in the world I was gonna be able to eat with a right handed guy next to me. Every table was totally full with 6 people. Some of the folks went downstairs and sat but the tables were assigned so if the people wanted to sit down again you were out of luck. OK you say it's a whale watching cruise so you shouldn't be sitting down that much. It was cold wet and rainy which is normal for Alaska. So being out on deck was pretty miserable. But I was so uncomfortable in that ridiculous seating arrangement (6'3" tall) I had to get up. And there really was no where to stand unless you put your butt right in someone's face that was sitting down. I felt like one of those "Dangerous Catch" sailors when we got back. I would definitely NOT recommend this shore excursion because of that.
Stood in line for around an hour or more in Vancouver waiting to get on the ship. I guess that's normal?
I slipped and fell in the Thallasotherapy pool area because it's humid in there and misty etc. They really need to put in a slip resistant floor in there (there is such a thing). I have some bad legs and if I walked anymore carefully I'd be standing still. One day they couldn't decide which level in the restaurant they wanted us to sit in for lunch.
Seems like I'm talking about food a lot? Well isn't that supposed to be one of the high points of any cruise?
