Pros: The dinner sitting was thye highlight of each day. We had a group of 12 that spent our dinner hour each day swapping storiede and experinces - the Millenium staff (Arun, Rodrigo, Mikel and Vlad) were over the top in personalizing and enjoying the time along with us - they exceeded all our expectations and we would return just to spend time with them again.
Cons: absolutely none - we were impressed with the structure and order of the staff that made us feel like we were the only ones aboard.
Cons: Travel to and from hard
Excellent service and friendly

Alaska-from Fairbanks to Vancouver
Fairbanks to Vancouver
Pros: Friendly staff and amazing sights
Wonderful Cruise to Alaska
Northbound Coast from Vancouver, BC to Seward Alaska
Pros: Beautiful, well maintained ship with excellent staff and accommodations. We felt extremely cared for and pampered by all staff. Activities were fun and well executed. Meals were delicious and fine dining delivered great quality. Loved the coffee bar, scenic lounge with windows on three sides, theater and pools. Room service was a great feature which offered flexibility.
Cons: Would have liked appealing activities, such as movies, to be shown during times when excursions did not conflict. While we did not go without good food, we were surprised that our food options were limited to just 3 places (including room service) without having to be a member of something or pay extra (including ice cream). We had heard cruises were known for lots of food options all the time. Less options for those who do not drink. Outdoor pools and recreation court are great, but not used much during a trip with cold weather. Sea sickness occurred our last day so would have been good to be better prepared for that. Not unusual and didn't interrupt our trip much since it was the last day.

30th anniversary celebration!
Vancouver (start), Ketchikan, Icy Straits (Hoonah), Juneau, Skagway, Seward (Anchorage)
Pros: Staff was friendly! Cruise ship was large enough and plenty of areas for every one to enjoy with food, drinks, entertainment and activities. Easy tab system with stateroom cards tied to credit card and no cash needed (but be aware some items have additional costs which will show up). Great food in Metropolitan dining area and available at the Oceanview Buffett most any time of day. Open seating was nice rather than set dining options.
Cons: Extra costs for some things (some activities, dining options for specialty areas, bridge tour, some drinks, gelato, Internet). Trip was very rainy, overcast and views were limited. Avoided family hours in pool because parents dropped off teens, kids with no supervision and they were very loud and unruly... No relaxing!
Inside passage Alaska
Pros: Celebrity Cruise great, as always
Cons: Wish we would've done the tour first and ended with the cruise
Our first Celebrity cruise
Pros: Friendly staff, good entertainment, crew was visible every day. If you like high end shopping they have many stores.
Cons: Buffet was set up strange, had to keep walking around to find choices, only to find out you were sitting on the complete other side of the restaurant. In main restaurant menu choices seemed strange, limited variety, but they do have their daily classics so you can always get a steak.

Pros: Cruise was very relaxing - Many sea days. Enjoyed the ports of call in Japan. My wait staff, room staff and room service were excellent.
Cons: Much of the staff seemed very aloof.
Pros: Well organized land tour and the cruise ship experience was very good
Cons: Even with a well organized land tour, Celebrity crammed too much into Day 3: four hour train ride from Fairbanks to Denali and eight hour bus ride through the Denali Tundra. It should never be an offering.
Pros: Great time with our adult children.
Excellent ship experience
Pros: The ship was kept very clean.
Cons: The disembarkment process from ship to transportation to airport home.

Cons: Wish we had more time in Skagway
Excellent crew, beautiful trip - thoroughly enjoyed!
Pros: Crew was very courteous, helpful and attentive!

Summer Alaska cruise
Pros: Breathtaking scenery everywhere, we saw whales, bears, otters and seals
Cons: Every port is highly commercialized and their main business is selling jewelry to tourists.
What has happened to Celebrity?
Pros: See review
Cons: See review
Horrible ship and cruise line
Alaska (Hubbard Glacier, Juneau, Skagway, Icy Strait, Ketchikan, Inside Passage)
Pros: Easy Debarkation
Cons: Poor Service, Dirty ship, Lack of caring by the staff
Pros: Fabulous Cruise, service was excellent!
Next year----Forget Russia
Japan; Russia; Canada
Pros: Good shows: good entertainment director
Cons: Advertised Sapporo, but stopped 2 hrs bus trip away. Therefore using up 1/2 of the 1 day stop on bus. Didn't travel so far to sit on bus. Also, Russian stop was terrible. It was not a stop for us as tourist, but a refueling stop for ship. They should get another refueling place or stop referring to it as a tourist destination.
