Alaska is on your bucket list and we can help check it off in a big way!
Our best advice is to join our Cruise Tour group in 2017. This is your opportunity to take the adventure you always dreamed of. Witness dramatic displays of ice-shelves breaking off into icebergs. Visit cultures that have lived and loved the land for thousands of years. Marvel at moose and bear on the land, bald eagles soaring above, and humpback whales peacefully rolling with the sea. And gaze upon the backdrop of a million stars showcasing the miracle of the Aurora Borealis. You’ll spend 6 nights on the land tour and afterwards transfer to the recently updated (Solsticized in 2012 and grand makeover in 2016) Celebrity Millennium for a 7 night cruise.
A favorite of many vacationers, Celebrity Millennium was “Solsticized” in May of 2012 and emerged with many award-winning Solstice® Class features. She’s been renewed with spa-inspired AquaClass® staterooms, the AquaClass signature restaurant, Blu, and the addition of verandas to her chic Celebrity Suites. in 2016, this brilliant star of the Millennium® Class became even brighter, as Millennium® received her grand makeover. The Penthouse and Royal suites received glimmering new marble, fixtures, seating, and more. The new Rooftop Terrace will gives you a chic new way to experience the great outdoors, with creative cocktails, favorite snacks, and movies alfresco. If you hunger for an Italian steak house, we’ll enjoy fresh pastas and dry-aged steaks from Tuscan Grille.
