On October 7 my wife and I drove to Miami to sail on Millennium for the second time. The first was 11 years ago. The experience then led us to consider Celebrity as our favorite cruise line. Since then we sailed all the Millennium class as well as Mercury and Solstice. Each ship delivered exemplary service and facilities. We were eager to see how "solsticizing" affected Millie. It was even better than the first time.

We were in a concierge balcony cabin and it was excellent. Thank you Javier for your effort to keep it clean and us well stocked with ice and flowers. Guess what....chocolates on the pillow !!! Nice to experience them again.

Dining was at a table for 6 at 6P.M. Every night the food choices were many and varied, plus the menu offered several stable items every meal. Loved having escargot available every meal as well as creme brulee. No complaints with either the service or the taste...enjoyed pretty much everything.

Shows were somewhat of a let More down....maybe a result of so many cruises. The band was great, stages nice, costumes elegant...just did not have the WOW factor.
In summary it was a great ship with a great itinerary and friendly crew. No problems anywhere......until we tried the internet. It was painfully slow. Less

Cabin review: Concierge Class 2

C28064
cabin 8064 was a good location near the front and fairly quiet. Nicely furnished and newer TV. Floor of balcony would end up in cabin ( loose material ) but steward kept it cleaned up. Daily snacks and fruit were a nice touch.

Port and Shore Excursions


Lands end and the Arch.....truly spectacular. Could go back anytime.

this is such a fun experience. climbing to the top and then taking the plunge was AWESOME. do it if you possibly can !!!!

Embera Indian Tour
What a great day. Tour of Gatun locks followed by trip up into highlands to dugout canoe trip across lake to visit with the Embera Indians. Good experience...thank you My Friend Mario tours.

hired a driver to show us around. NICE area....could easily return...beautiful !!

shared a van with others on the pier and it ended up being a nice 4 hour tour. fed white faced monkeys, saw macaws, iguanas, crocodiles....good time.
