“I’m excited for the opportunity to cruise with my closest fans aboard Celebrity Millennium. The experience of playing with my band and sharing the breathtaking sights of one of the most beautiful destinations in the world will be one I’ll remember forever. This cruise will allow me to spend quality time and get to know the fans onboard, just as they’ve gotten to know me through my music. Sailing with them on a week-long Celebrity Cruises vacation will be a highlight of my career, and I can’t wait to share the journey.”
Kenny G had already featured in another Celebrity Cruises trip in 2011, which the company said went over well for both Mr. G and for fans aboard the ship. The cruise is sailing from Vancouver, British Colombia from May 17- May 24, 2013.
The City and Borough of Juneau is a unified municipality located on the Gastineau Channel in the panhandle of the U.S. state of Alaska. It has been the capital of Alaska since 1906, when the government of the then-District of Alaska was moved from Sitka as dictated by the U.S. Congress in 1900. The municipality unified in 1970 when the city of Juneau merged with the city of Douglas and the surrounding Greater Juneau Borough to form the current home rule municipality.
Juneau is named after gold prospector Joe Juneau, though the place was for a time called Rockwell and then Harrisburg (after Juneau’s co-prospector, Richard Harris). The Tlingit name of the town is Dzántik’i Héeni (“river where the flounders gather”), and Auke Bay just north of Juneau proper is called Aak’w (“little lake”) in Tlingit. The Taku River, just south of Juneau, was named after the cold t’aakh wind, which occasionally blows down from the mountains.
