We chose this ship because of the itinerary and because we were traveling with our adult children and grandchildren. We felt the dress code was appropriate for our older teens and young 20 somethings, and it worked out well. Although the ship is older, it was pretty well maintained and was clean. We had booked three balcony cabins and four inside rooms, all in the same area. The rooms were fine although we were disappointed to find that we could not open the panels between the balconies. We all had the same room steward, Ahmed, and he was terrific! We ate in the buffet the first night and in the Dining Room the second night. All of us preferred the selections in the Dining Room. We had reservations two nights, but found the maitre'd was able to accomodate us pretty quickly if we went early on the nights we did not have reservations. Service was very good with few exceptions. ( One night the waitress for one table told the boys they could not order more than one entree. While the portions are perfect for us older folks, our young men are big eaters!) We booked the Float Plane excursion off the ship in Ketikan, but the rest of the cruise, we privately booked vans for all 14 of us and it worked out well. This was our second cruise to Alaska, but our first time to Icy Straits. It was nicely done, but there is really not much to see/do. Some of our group walked to the nearby town of Hoonah and enjoyed their jaunt. The captain did a great job of showing us Hubbard Glacier and we were sad to leave. We have been on over 20 cruises; this was our second on Celebrity and was very definitely better than the first. I can recommend the Millenium for Alaska.

Great cruise
