Celebrity Cruises Returns To "The Great North"

Celebrity Millennium sailing in Alaska

 For globetrotters who had set their sights on a dream vacation to Alaska, the wait ended today as Celebrity Millennium set sail from Seattle, Washington to take guests on a seven-night itinerary exploring the renowned natural beauty of the Last Frontier. The voyage is the first of a series of 11 sailings roundtrip from Seattle through the beginning of October, and one of the first to return to Alaska's waters in nearly two years.

Aboard the new luxury ship Celebrity Millennium, part of a $500 million fleetwide 'revolution', guests will be treated to an experience that is as beautiful as the scenery they will encounter as they sail past Alaska's breath-taking glaciers and landscapes.

Celebrity Millennium is the second ship in the Celebrity fleet to sail from a U.S. port. It joins Celebrity Edge which became the first ship in the world to sail from a U.S. port since March 2020 when it sailed from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on June 26. 

"It's really incredible to return to Alaska, today, to once again support the local culture and to share its stunning scenery with our guests. It is truly deserving of its bucket list status and I have always had a special place in my heart for its incredible people and natural beauty," said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises. "To be bringing tourism and the cruise industry back to Alaska is an honor and so important for rebuilding the economy of several key Alaskan communities. I am thankful to all elected officials involved for recognizing the need and finding a way to begin to restore their livelihoods." 

Sailing the line's popular Alaska Dawes Glacier Cruise, Celebrity's Alaska sailings will take guests to the most unforgettable coastal destinations including:

Ketchikan – Uniquely nestled at the southernmost entry to Alaska's famous Inside Passage, it is the best spot for a flightseeing excursion of the Misty Fjords;
Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier – Sailing through this 30-mile-long stretch, guests are surrounded by granite cliffs, mountain valleys and gushing waterfalls before viewing the 600-feet-tall and half-mile wide Dawes Glacier. One of cruising's must-experience highlights, the ship does a full turn here, providing views of this incredible feat of nature to guests on both sides of the ship;
Juneau – This energetic capital city is home to Mendenhall Glacier and Mt. Roberts, and offers more hiking trails than roads;
Skagway – Once the heart of the Gold Rush, visitors can explore the Yukon on the White Pass Railway.
Icy Strait Point – On Chichagof Island just outside the village of Hoonah, this is the port of adventure and culture, providing a glimpse into life in Alaska's largest Native Tlingit village.
Onboard, guests will enjoy Celebrity Millennium's bow to stern transformation with new, contemporary staterooms and suites featuring Celebrity's eXhale bedding with its luxurious Cashmere™ mattresses; freshly appointed restaurants and lounges; and a redesigned spa offering guests unparalleled ways to relax and recharge.  At the all-exclusive The Retreat, suite guests enjoy a private sundeck and redesigned lounge offering complimentary beverages, gourmet bites, live entertainment, and around-the-clock butler and concierge service.

And, because holidays should be effortless from the start, Wi-Fi, drinks and tips are now Always IncludedSM on every Celebrity cruise, simplifying the luxury holiday experience.
