  1. celebrity Cruise was for a July on Millenium newly refurbished. They gave me $300 back towards future cruise credit which I’m sure we’ll use so not worried about it.
  2. Thank you SO MUCH FOR this info.. we definitely PREFER Celebrity (By the way Celebrity offers complimentary binoculars and umbrellas for their Concierge class and above). but again their land offering for post/pre cruise were minimal and very hard to get information.. Do you know the local company they use?? The one you mentioned is used by HAL?? I checked Alaska tours and they had a great one BUT It was a mission we would have had to go back to the airport to get to the hotel since we were starting 1 day earlier then the tour. Maybe I can take a look at their land tours of the company you are talking about... Currently we are doing a Connesiuer tour pre cruise for 8 days. Fairbanks/Denali/Mt Mckinlei cooper ridge and Kenai. Then picking up the cruise in Whittier. So I will be both in Kenai and Whittier I was just looking at which cruise to take In kenai so thanks for the info. I still haven't ruled out going back to X if I can find an adequate land tour.. if you happen to have the name of the tour company for X that’d be great cause Celebrity would to give it to me.. thanks!!
  3. No it was Celebrity. So when we broke dit was a mandatory non refundable $500 deposit. They ended up only penalizing us $200 and then they are mailing us a credit for $300 for a future cruise. We do one every year on Celebrity since we live in FLL I'll definitely use it. Thanks!!
  4. Thank you so much for your input. What happened was that we had the Millennium booked BUT really wanted to do an extended land tour. We ALWAYS TRAVEL Celebrity . BUT unfortunately Princess owns Alaska and had the better tours. We were unable to book a princess Conniseur tour and celebrity ship which would have been ideal! When Princess has a sale this month we booked Princess because they included the premium drink, grats, WiFi and again the tour was WAY better then what Celebrity offered... also we originally had a gray line tour and celebrity ship but it was going to be a mission getting from place to place and having to go to the airport for tour pick up after already being in hotel as they didn’t have the original tour hotel available an extra night before 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️. At this point we have to make the best of it. Our old Celebrity Millenium Cain aft went up to $7200 just for cruise.
  5. Hi Fellow Cruisers, We are a couple in our 40s and typically sail Celebrity Concierge Class Aft balconies... After reading 2019's latest reviews for Royal Princess (Alaska) in conjunction with Princess vs Celebrity for Alaska; I think I'm having a MELTDOWN... I JUST cancelled an aft cabin (CC1) on the newly renovated Celebrity Millennium with a $500 penalty because I was advised over and over Princess does ALASKA BEST and that their lodges are TOP NOTCH!! But after reading all those reviews I'm concerned the food will be AWFUL or at best mediocre after spending 12K on cruise and Connoisseur land tour; and after reading the size of the Royal may not be allowed on some days into Juneau and no longer cruises the Inside Passage. Also, I booked an AFT cabin as should be done in Alaska and I read there is a HUGE SOOT problem on the aft balconies... I'm FREAKING OUT!!! This is a 12K expense that I expect to be better then my Celebrity experiences as stated by Princess advertising.., but I fear it has turned into Carnival after reading reviews. My Celebrity cruises had ALL been AMAZING, from the FOOD to the CREW, cleanliness, problem resolution, etc etc etc... I checked to rebook my cabin on Celebrity and the price was 2K more in addition to I would have to figure out a land option all over again. If any of you have been on Royal Princess to Alaska 2019, am I freaking out OR is it going to be OK?? Should I cancel and beg Celebrity to take me back? Best and THANK YOU, G
