Milli's last trip before Solticizing

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Miami

Just back from a 5 night cruise on Celebrity Millennium with stops in Roatan and Cozumel. Millennium is now going to drydock for three weeks in the Bahamas.

We had a wonderful time. Lovely balcony in C2 class. Eddy did a great job keeping us happy fulfilling all our needs. Food and drink was great. Embarkation and departure were smooth and painless. Great entertainment! Just a pleasure.

Suggestions for future passengers-
* order a cheese and fruit plate nightly to complement the canapes.
* don't stress the a partially obstructed view in 8050. Not a big deal.
* Do not depend on Internet. Just terrible. Slow and cutting off regularly. Even when trying to book a new cruise with the Celebrity travel consultant. Maybe the Sosticizing will solve this.
* Do eat in the Olympic dining room. Maybe even twice. Wow!
* If you can avoid it, do not go on the last cruise before dry dock. Crew members are mentally moving on to home, their next More contract or into dry dock. They have no idea what to expect and some were fairly apprehensive. Celebrity was already tearing down parts of the ship {sport bar)and the noise was really unfortunate.

Suggestions for Celebrity.
* Fix the internet. Really bad.
* Open the coffee bar at 6 AM. There is just not enough available for early risers.
* I know refits are unusual, but please do not start the overhaul while customers were on board. On the fourth day at sea, they began taking apart the 11th deck above the buffet hall. Talk about a way to end the cruise early. YOU just felt like the cruise line had moved on and they just wanted you out of the way. It was loud, continuous and a real breach of customer focus.

All that said, it was still a great time for us and just our bad luck to catch the last trip.

I only emphasize this so others can avoid it. Less

Cabin review: Celebrity Millennium Concierge Class Panorama Deck (8) 8050

8050 was a great C2 cabin. There is an obstructed view. A painters platform blocks a little bit. For us, it really wasn't a big deal. Otherwise, very nice.

Mayan Ruins

(5)
We loved Coba. The only ruins you can still climb. Just remember if you climb up, you need to get back down. An amazing experience but a physical challenge and dangerous. No waivers, but coming down can be downright scary.

We loved this visit. Drove to Gumbalimba part and the beach. Both were fun. Roatan seems relatively untouched. Apparently a snorklers paradise. 2nd best coral reefs in the world behind Great Barrier Reef. We'll try that next time.
