  1. Four hours and one minute total, but saved ~$5200 for two bookings. Still a good use of my time since I could work and clean house while waiting. Thanks to everyone for the advice and to the OP for the heads up. 🙂
  2. What is the best number to call to get through quickly on this (if not through a TA)? General number? Captain's Club? Other? Looks like I can save over $2000 so very eager. 🙂 Thank you!
  3. 2 weeks after you (9/10) so please post about your experiences! I wanted to come back and report that...we weren't able to do the tour. Unfortunately we were on the sailing where the ship did not make it up the fjord to get anywhere near the glacier, and the tour was canceled. Every other aspect of our cruise was terrific, though!
  4. Yes! Just got off today, and we went to see a couple of movies up on deck. Sure, it was chilly, but we had plentiful flannel blankets. Usually three movies per day were offered on the sea days. Not sure about the other days. By the way, we found it mildly hilarious that several of the movies involved people dying awful deaths in Alaska - Grizzly Man, Into the Wild, etc. 😃
  5. Oh wow, looks amazing. Boarding in one week and have been targeting the lobster roll for embarkation lunch, but those pics might make me change my mind. Love your posts - thank you for them!
  6. I realize you’re trying to insult us. I suggest you stop. A. You’re terrible at your feeble attempts B. The only thing you’ve succeeded at is making yourself look petty C. No one finds your insults in anyway helpful, humorous or worthwhile Ah, but I did find your response humorous and worthwhile! 😆
  7. I'm not sure if this is an issue. It says 24 hours before departure from home port. How quickly does any cruise ship get to Bonaire? If, for instance, you departed on a Saturday, you could get a test as late as Friday. If the test results took, say, three days to come through, then if you arrived in Tuesday or later in Bonaire, the results would be valid. Doesn't seem so restrictive, except for the fact that people flying in early will need to find a test site near the departure port within a day of cruising.
  8. I'm loving your style already and can't wait to read your reports!
  9. Tragic. I recall hearing about that mid-air collision a couple of years ago. As you said, you just never know.
  10. Crash 😢 Edit: Guess my original post is already out of date. Unfortunately the wreckage has been found, and no one survived.
  11. Thank you thank you! We're on the 8/27 sailing and I've been itching for some info. Since we're local, we're also parking at the pier, so the information regarding no shuttle is helpful to us. Looking forward to your posts. (And laughing at the "underwire bra" comment.)
  12. Dear Guest, We look forward to welcoming you aboard Celebrity Millennium® for your 7-Night Alaska sailing from Seattle, Washington. Before we depart, we have some important information to share regarding our Health and Safety Protocols. Celebrity Cruises has been working closely with health and government authorities, in each country we sail from, to outline a clear path for cruising with new health and safety measures. As we return to service, we are continuously evaluating all requirements from local government and health officials. Out of an abundance of caution, Celebrity Cruises will be enhancing COVID-19 testing requirements for both vaccinated and unvaccinated guests. All guests over the age two, regardless of vaccination status, will now be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result at the time of embarkation. This test may be taken as either a PCR test or an Antigen test, conducted within 72 hours of embarkation. Each guest is responsible for making their own arrangements with an accredited testing provider as well as all associated costs. Unvaccinated guests and children, under 12 years of age, will be required to take an additional antigen test at the terminal prior to embarkation, mid-cruise and on the day before disembarkation. A registration link for required testing will be sent separately. Should a guest be unable to complete the testing requirements, a 100% refund or Future Cruise Credit will be offered. Additional testing and protocols will be confirmed closer to your sailing departure date in line with the most up to date recommendations from local government and health officials as well as our Healthy Sail Panel. These measures, including vaccination and testing requirements, will evolve along with public health standards. Celebrity Millennium will sail with a vaccinated crew, and at least 95% of guests fully vaccinated. Guests 12 years and older must be fully vaccinated with all COVID-19 vaccine doses administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. For details on our current health and safety protocols please visit www.healthyatsea.com. We’re sailing with fewer guests for more space – and more luxury with even more activities to avoid large gatherings in public spaces. We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause. We're confident they will deliver a more satisfying vacation experience. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Celebrity Cruises at 1-844-418-6824 in North America or (316) 554-5961 worldwide.
  13. Annnnd, now I just received an email for my August 27 Alaska cruise on Millennium, saying a test will be required for all pax, regardless of vaccination status.
  14. I would be happy to! Thanks again for your help.
  15. Thanks again! Wonderfully helpful. We are on the August 27 sailing. How about you?
  16. Thank you so much!! This is extremely helpful. Ours says 7 a.m., which is slightly more palatable than 5:30. 🙂
  17. I'm wondering about this as well. We just booked this on Celebrity Millennium, and it is called Endicott Arm and is five hours long. I'm assuming board off the ship, which it seems to indicate, and end in Juneau? Hope someone can clarify and also indicate if this is worth it as the other seem to be. One other question: a member of our party has a little trouble with steps and such. He walks fine and doesn't need assistance but just is slow and a little unsteady with stairs. The Celebrity excursion description said this, which seemed a bit surprising: "To fully participate may require extended periods of walking over even and uneven surfaces, steep terrain and/or water activity in a slight current. There may be steps, inclines, cobblestone surfaces, and extended periods of standing. Participants with physical limitations should take this into account." Could this be correct?
  18. We have it booked for the August 27 sailing on Millennium, and I'd be happy to come back and share thoughts, menu, etc.
  19. +1 Was thinking the same thing! Those pants are fab.
  20. We are in two Royal Suites, and two of us are Elite, so I'm not thinking that it is the issue, either. Definitely could be a later departure coming our way. I was hoping for a lobster roll in Luminae for lunch, but I'll be happy just to be on the ship whenever they let us on!
  21. Great info - thanks for doing that legwork!
  22. Same for us on the August 27 Millennium Alaska sailing. Only one slot offered, at 3 pm. I expect that will have to change.
