Millennium Alaska NB Today Newsletter

Recommended Posts

Just returned from the Millennium seven day Northbound Alaska Cruise.  Had a wonderful time.  Will post a full review later this week. I have scanned the daily newsletters!  I also included the mini bar price list and the Captains club Select benefit sheet.

The price of king crab was $45. I noticed that it was never printed...but verbal at time of booking.  I felt too much and did Tracy’s crab shack. 

 

The upgrade price was $84 for the week.   My wife and I watched our classic package closely on day 1. We were always able find a drink we wanted on the classic package. We did not upgrade. 

 

Hope that helps

Thanks so much! We sail Aug 2. I am noticing that the onboard lectures are not Alaska related. Was the narration good in Hubbard ? Also when going into Hubbard Glacier where did you go for viewing? We had been planning to go up to what is now the suite retreat deck!

The narration was pretty minimal. 😢🛳

also not loud enough. They described the calving and it’s amazing sound. The told us how long we would be there and how we would spin. 

 

The top decks were packed and helipad jammed. I saw lots of folks walking to suite retreat.

 

 We stayed on our balcony on deck 9. Great view. And warmer. 🥶

Thanks!  We have an inside cabin (hoping for a price drop or a move up offer to make an OV or balcony possible) so we are going to have to be out on the main decks.I am thinking deck 4 may be an option. And we will be up super early!

That sounds like a good plan.  Hoping you get the amazing weather we had that day! Enjoy your cruise. Captain Theo is great!

The narration is Hubbard was pretty weak.  Obviously reading from a prepared script with lots of "oohs", "ahhh"s and "incredibles" thrown in.  Celebrity should do better.

That's disappointing. I'll be on the Millennium next month. I've cruised to Alaska with Brent Nixon as the naturalist. I thought his talks were excellent.

Thank you! I am also on the August 2nd sailing and looking forward to it. Do you know what the fitness classes cost (specifically the yoga and spinning/indoor cycling classes)? Thanks!

Sorry.....I do not know what the cost is.  I used the treadmills early in the am. It did get crowded by 530-600 am.

How was disembarking in Seward at the end of the cruise? How much time did it take? We will be taking the ACT bus to Anchorage at 8 am. Thanks.
