If it wasn't for seniors (60 and above ) half the fine restaurants in the USA would go out of business in a week. Also 1/2 the cruise ships would be scrapped within a year. Seniors have the money and the time to travel at any time of the ... Read more

I am a single traveler, 45 years old, male, and usually willing to pay a bit more for superb service. The cruise was great, but there was nothing particularly "superb" about this cruise. My travel group consisted of 26 acquaintences in 14 ... Read more

Gosh, it's hard to believe we were on the same ship as previous posters. Yes, opinions are just that - opinions, and everyone has a different one. I found the ship and particularly the crew excellent in most respects, with just a few ... Read more

We were on the Celebrity Summit last week and had a wonderful time cruising with good friends and enjoying the ship, the crew, the ship's activities, tours of each port, and being in the warm weather and out of the deep freeze in the ... Read more

This was our second transatlantic cruise both on Celebrity and our fourth cruise with Celebrity. We had the best time meeting new cruise-mates as well as crew members, what a terrific experience! Because of high winds we were delayed ... Read more

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

A little about us, we were part of 14 Aussies who spent time in Hawaii before boarding this lovely lady of the sea. My daughter and I arrived early and spent 8 days staying at the Outrigger Waikiki, I have stayed there previously on 6 ... Read more

16 of us boarded in Rome on November 1, 2013 for the 15 day transatlantic cruise to Miami. 10 travelled in Aqua Class and 6 in suites. The addition of another deck with the addition of 104 more Aqua Class passengers only benefits Celebrity ... 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

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
