My husband and I cruised Celebrity over 20 years ago and we wanted to cruise Alaska. We chose Celebrity and the Millennium for the one-way itinerary and the long stays in particular Ports. This decision really paid off for our excursions.
We live in Seattle and took Amtrak to Vancouver the day before the cruise. Our stay was at The Wedgwood Hotel and it was lovely. We had high tea at The Fairmont on the day of arrival and dinner in Bacchus , The Wedgwood's restaurant, it was amazing. The day of embarkation we chose to have lunch at the hotel and embark around 1:30. I feel that was a good choice as our lunch at The Wedgwood was peaceful and delicious.
The Millennium's new decor is lovely and fits both our tastes well. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and efficient outside of customer relations, they did not seem engaged. Our room steward, Natasha, was especially outstanding.
Newly renovated and very pretty. Located eighth floor, starboard, forward about 10 cabins from the middle. Plenty of storage and we liked the floor plan use of the small space. The shower had plenty of room. The up-lights in the cabin were a nice touch. We were lucky with nice, sunny weather so we used the balcony extensively.
