When we did our first Alaska cruise in 2011, it was clear that this would become our favorite cruise destination. This was very difficult for me to imagine since I really don’t like cold and snow. The scenery was breathtaking!
We decided that it was important to go back and on August 1, 2014, we will head out on the Celebrity Millennium for an exciting 7 night Northbound Alaska cruise. Some may ask why we chose this cruise line and ship. It’s simple. With Alaska, I feel that the ship doesn’t matter as much because your focus is more on the scenery and activities on shore. What’s important is to have good food and great service. The next thing that was important was the itinerary. Last time we cruised on Disney Cruise Line’s Wonder. It was fantastic but what we missed was the time to tour on land in Alaska. We decided that we wanted to cruise one way, and selected Vancouver to Seward. This would give us the option of a land tour as well. Some of our cruisers will head home from Anchorage while others will extend the stay and head up to Denali and Fairbanks. There will be a few that will even go up to the Arctic Circle!
We were able to secure excellent pricing on this sailing. Inside rooms start at $2108.44, oceanview rooms start at $2612.90, balconies start at $3738.44 and concierge starts at $3808.44. Prices are for two people in one cabin and include meals, taxes and port fees. What’s even better is that Celebrity has just announced their popular Pick Your Perk! promotion.
The best deal on this promotion is the free Classic Beverage Package. Valued at $616, this perk will give you all beverages (beers up to $5, mixed drinks and wine up to $8) for free. This includes premium coffees and teas, soft drinks, bottled and fresh squeezed juices and non-premium bottled water. For those that would prefer more premium selections, you can upgrade for $10 plus gratuity per person per night ($80.50 per person for our cruise) to the Premium Beverage Package. This package includes beers, mixed drinks and wine up to $12 per serving. This perk is valid for two guests per cabin.
You can also choose a $400 Choice Air credit, $200 onboard credit or prepaid gratuities (valued between $168 – 217 per cabin).
With this as a group cruise, we will also have select group benefits. To get onboard, you will need to pay a deposit of $500 per stateroom, which is fully refundable until 75 days prior to sailing, at which time the balance will be due and penalties for cancelling will apply.
If you are not interested in cruising to Alaska, you can still take advantage of the Pick Your Perk! promotion on a wide variety of Celebrity Cruises sailings. Contact Travel On A Dream today for your quote today!
