July 2016 - Celebrity Millennium to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
Our cabin was on deck 3, ocean view. I highly recommend an ocean view cabin over an interior cabin. We often watched the sunrise and porting from our cabin and enjoyed the comfortable quiet time. The food was always delicious, serving sizes were perfect, and service was excellent. Only down comment was the hard sell for on-board purchases for future cruises and shore excursions. We found the same excursions at half the price ashore at virtually every stop. High price to pay for the convenience. Knowing that ahead made for a good journey. Sights were great in spite of cloudy weather and occasional drizzles. If you don't do a land portion ahead, you should definitely do the tour bus between Seward and Anchorage for the stop at the wildlife conservancy. Sights are great on the train, but the conservancy and sights on the tour bus make this a better choice IMHO.
