Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2010
Cabin: Concierge Class 3

The "Millenium" is a beautiful ship. We have sailed on the "Mercury" twice before and loved her too, but the "Millenium" is a very special, very elegant ship to say the least.

Our Concierge Class Cabin was roomy, restful and welcoming. The queen sized bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of storage space. The balcony was large enough, with 2 comfy chairs and a small round table. The bathroom was the largest we have had on a cruise ship of this category, and very well laid out. Most importantly, it was extremely quiet, which is something we treasure.

We dined twice in the "Olympic" Restaurant, and is was delightful. The service and food was excellent, and the room itself reminiscent of a bygone era, with wood panelling and crystal lighting.

Concierge Class 3

Cabin C3

Cabin 8137 - "Millennium".

Extremely quiet area of ship. No through traffic as such. Plenty of storage space. Great bathroom, plenty of room, good shower pressure and temperature. Good balcony. Very comfortable bed. Very restful and comfortable stateroom overall.

Port Reviews

Skagway

Skagway was just wonderful. Our ship berthed an easy 10 minutes walk from downtown, but a shuttle bus ran the whole time if you didn't want to walk.

This is the gateway to the Klondike and Yukon, where the Gold Rush actually started. The town itself is very small (800 population at it's peak in summer), but full of old historic buildings and charm, surrounded by soaring snow covered mountains.

A "must do" in this port of call is the White Pass and Yukon Railway Journey from Skagway up to Fraser in British Columbia Canada (takes about 1.5 hours). The train travels the original route used since the late 1890's, and the scenery is both dramatic and magnificent. There are open air viewing platforms at the end of each carriage for stunning photography too.
