August 2014 - Celebrity Millennium to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
A good way to see several of Alaska's points of interest. Some stops had several ships in port so could not get an appropriate feeling for the town/village. We enjoyed our excursions in Ketchikan and Juneau, learning about the lives of the native people and we appreciated the natural environment. We disembarked at Skagway as we were more interested in visiting Whitehorse than Anchorage and were told we would have time to catch the 7:30am White Pass train but were not told that we first needed to clear US customs as the ship is registered in Malta. So we caught the 12:30 train instead. The ship staff were friendly and pleasant. The food was very good and well presented with lots of variety to suit all tastes. It was also an opportunity to try foods not usually part of our menu at home. We were satisfied with our table mates that were chosen for us, and had great conversations with them. The ship was clean and attentive to cleanliness. Guest services personnel were knowledgeable and helpful. Although staff were from all countries, all spoke good English.
