  1. Thank you all for your advice, I really do appreciate your input. We both remember the soups fondly and I am happy to hear they are still good. I will ask the server for recommendations and I will make a reservation for dinner in Tuscan Grille but wish our ship had Murano instead. Both of us like almost every type of food including different cuisines from around the globe, we just want it prepared correctly. My expectations are not very high as I live in downtown Seattle two blocks from Pike Place and I know I am supremely spoiled with all the wonderful food and restaurants. My son and I cruised Ruby Princess last year and the food in the main dining room was horrible. Share was amazing and their burger bar was good as well. Also, their pizza was wonderful, thin crust Italian style. I am confident that we will enjoy our cruise and find some items to our liking.
  2. Dear Cruise Experts, We need your sage advice. Haven't cruised Celebrity since 1998. We were on the Galaxy and the food was really good. Have been reading reviews of the decline of food and am worried so I would like to know if there are some safe choices. There must some reliable choices in the main dining room and also is Tuscan Grille worth the money spent. Has anyone had the branzino? We depart on the 24th and hope to have your advice to guide us,
  3. BudgetQueen, Thank you for your honest input, I do appreciate that. I chose the Skagway train trip because my son and I absolutely loved this excursion last May. Interesting train and history, I had forgotten how small it really was so thanks for that reminder. Truly beautiful mountains and the numerous waterfalls were spectacular. Based on your information regarding the crab and Hoonah I will keep the George Inlet crab feast. 69.00 pp for all you can eat Dungeness crab is a bargain. Keeping the Sawyer Glacier Tracy Arm tour and also the Hoonah small boat whale tour but I have decided to cancel the Major Marine Kenai Fjords tour and look at other options. May choose a smaller tour operator. There is the possibility we may go more low-key for that last day prior to the train to Anchorage, visiting Exit Glacier, a nice walk along the shore, do a little shopping and have a good fresh halibut meal. Whatever we choose, we will enjoy ourselves very much.
  4. Greetings, Cruising May 24th from Vancouver, one-way to Seward. This is my second cruise to AK, the first was to Glacier Bay with my son on the Princess Ruby as I live in Seattle and it departs from here. Had so much fun. I have brain block at this point, no matter how much research I do I cannot seem to form the answers I require. I have the following excursions booked but really want to know if I am repeating experiences or could eliminate something. Your infinite knowledge will be most appreciated! 1. Millennium arrives Juneau at 7 am, have the Sawyer Glacier tour booked with Adventure Bound that departs at 8:15, very close from ship berth, 2. Skagway Yukon train booked, 3. Ketchikan George Inlet crab feast booked on our own with bus lodge transport, (69.00 per person) really loved their crab from last cruise, we did the fight plane back to ship that time, 4. Icy Strait Pt., 3 hour whale watch with small boat, Glacier Wind, and 5. Seward Major Marine 6 hour Kenai Fjords tour before train departure to Anchorage. Here are my questions: We are taking the train from Seward to Anchorage so is the Skagway train really worth it? Do you think taking the Kenai Fjords tour after taking the Sawyer Glacier tour is worth it? Are three excursions on the water too many? My husband gets bored very easily. There is plenty to keep busy in Seward before the train, Exit Glacier, waterfront walks, halibut lunch, etc. Should we get fresh crab in Icy Strait Point and skip the George Inlet crab feast? I mention Icy Strait as we could use the crab lunch to help fill time there. Fellow cruisers, what would you eliminate from that list? Or what would you replace with? Thank you so VERY much for your time and assistance.

  6. Thank you for your response, I appreciate your time. Celebrity Millennium does not offer the Sawyer Glacier tour. Allen Marine does and mostly contracts with cruise ships, they were willing to reserve for me but their time did not work for the 28th. Adventure Bound has told me I should be fine but I am skeptical as it really is close. AB's departure point isn't too far from the docking marina. So, I may go ahead and book knowing that I may lose my money. Visiting Mendenhall with hikes as the backup plan.
  7. Good Day, As of yet, I do not know the assigned berth for the Millennium in Juneau for May 28th. AS seems to be the berth she is usually assigned. I need help from all you experts out there. If she docks at 7:00 a.m. and the Adventure Bound Sawyer Glacier tour leaves at 8:15, can I make it in time? What time will Celebrity let people off the ship? Thank you very much for your help, doing the Sawyer Glacier tour has been a dream of mine.
