We had a great cruise to Alaska on the Celebrity Millennium.  We loved the itinerary on the ship and were specifically looking for a one way cruise.  We spent two days in Vancouver prior to getting on the ship and four days in Anchorage at the end. 


We like, but don't love, Celebrity.  We're cruised several lines and prefer to use Carnival, but they did not offer one day cruises to Alaska.  The ship was lovely, but there wasn't much for our teenage sons to do, and we found the service to be lacking a bit. 


We treated my mother (for her 80th birthday) to dinner at The Olympic.  The meal was exceptional and the restaurant is beautiful.  It was well worth the extra $50 per person since it was a special event.


We don't love the food in buffet area.  There isn't the selection that exists on the other cruise lines.  The main dining room was fine and the food good.

Just hopped on our bus for Anchorage. It was raining when we arrived, so we didn't even see it.
