We had a family reunion on this cruise during Christmas week. There were 21 of us, and our family ranges in ages from 7- 86. Embarkation- This was a mess, and probably the worst part of the cruise. The line seemed to never end, and moved ... Read more

The cruise was great. Regarding: Celebrity Millennium. We did find most things a notch above Royal Caribbean. The ship interior was a bit nicer looking. The ship gym and spa area, not as nice a Royal Caribbean. The Officers on the ship ... Read more

We are elite level Captain's Club, traveling in concierge class with an interesting group. Overall, we found the experience not near what we have previously experienced on Celebrity. This was not a premium cruise, and not close to luxury. ... Read more

Boarding was probably one of the fastest we have ever experienced. Food was better than most. I knew the ship was old but really some of the things we saw were just sad. Instead of fixing the toilet paper cover correctly they put miss ... Read more

What a fabulous week we had on the Millennium. The balcony was definitely worth the extra money. The inside passage was smooth sailing. Gorgeous scenery. The naturalist on board highlighted what we were seeing through narration. Pack for ... Read more

Embarkation Day was just as bad as we expected and then some. The lines were very long and no provisions were made for the elderly and mobility impaired. There was no food provided until you were on your assigned bus to Ensenada and no ... Read more

Embarcation started smoothly at San Diego Airport. Celebrity met us and directed us to buses and our bags were taken to trucks. I asked the representative if we needed our paperwork i.e. set & sail pass and was told no just needed credit ... Read more

Before going on the special Top Chef cruise we read the reviews here to get an idea of what to expect. Almost everything was different on this cruise from what we had expected. It was my first cruise and her second. It's very likely ... Read more

We are unseasoned at cruising, so consider these comments with that perspective. Our previous cruise experience was limited to a 50-passenger trip though the Greek isles on the Sea Cloud -- a wholly different experience than that offered ... Read more

This was a group of 34 cruisers, most over 70, and most on their first cruise. I chose the Reflection because I felt it would provide a positive cruise experience for these folks with sufficient variety in food and entertainment for all. ... Read more

This is our first Celebrity cruise and we are mostly happy with it. The lady that took care of us at embarkation was efficient but not very friendly and the security people were scary. However, I felt better when we boarded we were ... Read more

After reading the recent horrendous reviews of the Celebrity Millennium, I was really very worried that we had chosen the wrong vacation. My experience was overall decent (but not excellent). There are no "WOW" moments on the Celebrity ... Read more

My wife and I booked this cruise on Constellation as an escape from a very dreary summer. We had an ocean view cabin and considered it to be one of the best cruises we had taken. Embarkation was swift and we felt very welcome. Our cabin ... Read more
