Excellent Cruisetour

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Seward
We have just returned from a 11 night Celebrity Cruisetour to Alaska. The four nights before the cruise included Anchorage, Talkeetna, Denali, and Alyeska. All the hotels were good with Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge being even nicer than Hotel Alyeska. It had bigger rooms, more restaurants, better food, coin laundy and friendly, helpful staff.

Celebrity Millennium has an excellent captain who leads the staff to provide great service, good food, and outstanding entertainment. We had a very comfortable cabin with an attentive steward, excellent waiters in the main dining room, good food in the all restaurants including the Olympia where the dinner was outstanding.

The captain arrived early in each port allowing us to dock in good locations and enabling passengers to be on time for tours. Our tours included: Taku Glacier Lodge Flight & Feast in Juneau, White Pass Railway & Historic City Highlights in Skagway, Ice Straits Point, Hoonah Sightseeing & Tribal Dance, More and Ketchikan Explorer by Land & Sea. Each trip was outstanding. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and the scenery was great and each trip was worth the price paid.

Even though we had rain on a number of days, each tour was able to continue.

We still enjoyed ourselves and layers of clothing with rain gear made each trip possible.

The entire crew worked very hard to maintain cleanliness and always provided hand sanitizer to keep everyone healthy. They did a great job and we had a illness free cruise. Less

Our cabin was great. It had a nice balcony, was in a quiet location, easy to access all parts of the ship, and had a great steward.

Port and Shore Excursions

We took the Hoonah Sightseeing and Tribal Dance Tour. Our bus driver was excellent and the guide was outstanding. She talked about the people of the city, about her background, and her love of her family and nature. We saw eagles and got excellent photographs.

The Tribal Dance was interesting. It was similar to the programs that are presented in Hawaii.

Our Flight to Taku Glacier Lodge was smooth, the pilot was skilled, the sight of the blue ice of the glaciers is wonderful, the lodge provided an excellent lunch, the view of the bear was exciting, and low clouds and rain did not dampen our spirits or the fun we had.

Mendenhall Gracier is a short shuttle ride from the dock. Drivers are polite, informative, and helpful. The walk to the glacier is very interesting and we saw salmon in the streams, outstanding plants, an excellent National Park Facility, and a beautiful glacier.

We had a tour of the Toteum poles, a visit to the Cannery and a boat ride along the coast. This tour was interesting with great information presented about salmon canning, and native trees and plants. We did see Eagles along the way.

Skagway is very interesting city to visit. It is easy to walk around.

We took the White Pass Railway and Historic City Highlights. The train ride is fun. Breakfast was remarkable with tasty food, great presentation, and outstanding service. We were able to see Mt. McKinley from the train and got excellent pictures.
