Ship Facts: Celebrity Millennium Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Millennium Deck Plans
In general, very nice
Sailed twice before on Millenium. Not a noticeable difference except for a couple of bars and the small movie theater is gone. Food has finally improved after a dramatic deterioration over the past several years. Dining room for "anytime dining" was efficient. In buffet, same food every day but plenty of variety so who cares? Lines too long for sandwiches at lunch. Only 2 sandwich makers. Celebrity still can't make a good cup of coffee in the buffet area. Some people speculated this was to force people to buy coffee at Al Bacio which we saw many people do. Larger cups and takeaway cups in Oceanview were appreciated, though.

Many sea days so took advantage of lecturers. Lecturers (Perrons) for destinations were very boring (although she was better than husband) because they used 20 year old PowerPoint slides that listed all their comments. They basically read the comments on the screen and added some commentary. Two movies were shown on the Panama Canal that were much more interesting. Astronomer from NASA was fairly dry and academic but so is his subject matter. Psychologist was fabulous. Went to every one of his talks.

Entertainment in theater was terrific except Kamiko (male/female duo) who played screeching electric guitar. This senior audience didn't seem to appreciate it and didn't recognize some comtemporary artists they were impersonating.

String trio extraordinary. Piano guy, Peter could play piano but had no voice. Accapella group at best average although folks seemed to like them. Nowhere as good as previous accapella groups.

Port of Puerto Quetzel is not listed to review. This was Guatemala and took Celebrity excursion to Antigua, the old city. Tour was supposed to be narrated but guide was half asleep and spoke very little. Looked at cell phone a lot. Went to poor, rural school on way to Antigua to donate school supplies and money. Kids and teachers seemed to appreciate us.
