Good Experience, but not excellent

Having traveled on another Celebrity ship, I was disappointed in the lack of SeaLife activities. Previously we had scrap-booking classes where they gave youthe kits for free to make pages for your scrap book,  loads of Bingo game opportunities and the watercolor class got a full set of paints, brushes and canvases to keep and use throughout the cruise.  I took the watercolor class on board Millennium and was loaned a small box of watercolor paints (which I offered to buy) and brushes, a dirty plate to use as a pallet and three brushes, all of which had to be returned at the end of the one hour class. There was no opportunity to take the materials back to the cabin and perhaps finish over down town.   There was a crepe making class, but no fruit carving class, no end of cruise grand buffet.  We have booked on celebrity again, hopefully this cruise will be more like the previous one on Infinity.

Food was okay but not standout, even in Qsine, where you pay for presentation more so than the food.

Onboard Activities
information was a bit sktechy. We had a issue with the transfers and bus direct to airport program and they could have been clearer that these were two separate programs. Information was in a couple paragraphs under one heding so we assumed (and you know what happend when you assume) that they were the same program which they were not. Got it cleared up but was stressfull and shoul dhave been made clearer in the daily newspaper.
Destinations and Excursions
The two we took were excellent
Cabin / Stateroom

Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
Ketchikan, Alaska
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
Only saw the exterior of the pier and the airport. Bus driver gave us a bit of a tour on way to airport which was nice


Bistro on Five is a little specialtyplace that had wonderful Paninis. Well worth the 7.00 pp. Only two other people in there for lunch and the food was great.

If you buy anything made of plants ie (fireweed jelly) or animal products (ox hair scarves) etc or salmon - pack it in your checked luggage
