June 2016 - Celebrity Millennium to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
I have been on many cruises but upgrading to the Aqua Suite and being
able to eat in the Blu Restaurant gave this cruise 5 stars.
The food was absolutely fabulous. Every night the food was just as delicious
as the next. The waiters and waitresses were outstanding the entire week.
We were addressed by name which was amazing. The Blu is a small
restaurant so the servers gave up personal attention.
I am lactose intolerant. I was asked to place my menu for the next day
so the chief knew not to add dairy to my meal. It was sad to have to
say goodbye to the muffin man who greeted us every morning with a
smile on his face and a plate full of scrumptious muffins.
We never had to wait in line for breakfast or dinner and most of the time we were able to eat by a table by the window.
If you are someone who enjoys a Turkish bath, sauna and hot spas,
the "Garden" is a place for you.
The gym was terrific. Upgraded equipment, yoga, pilates, and spin
classes were available. Very clean
I enjoyed the art auctions. The first auction I won a piece of art work
which was very exciting. If you enjoy art, you have to attend at
least one auction.
The most disappointing day and as far as I am concerned was the day
at the Icy Strait. Not much to do and too much time spent. My daughter
and myself went on the ATV which was very scary for me since the
passenger side did not have a seat belt. I addressed the problem and
was told to hold on. It was rather dangerous as far as I am concerned.
I heard the zip line was fun.
I would have liked to have fish at lunchtime on the 10th floor cafe but it
was not very good. The rest of the food ate I enjoyed.
There was a problem keeping the coffee hot. Most times it was luke
warm and passengers complained.
The entertainment was quite good. I only missed one show since I was tired.
My favorite shows where, Almost Elton John, Savannah Smith who was terrific, and ballroom dancing.
Our stateroom was terrific. We were given 2 warm bathrobes, slippers,
ice tea during the day, appetizers in the late afternoon and fruit.
When we arrived the bed was made into a double but as soon as we
called for room service to split up the beds it was taken care of.
Whomever I talked to on the ship was just as helpful and full of smiles as
the next. I could see that everyone on the ship worked exceptionally hard
to give us a wonderful vacation. I want to say thank you to all!
I enjoyed being able to go up to the Rendezvous Cafe after dinner and before
the show every night for entertainment.
