On 12/12/04 we sailed on the Millennium to the Eastern Caribbean. As we had sailed on Celebrity ships before, twice on the Summit and once on the Century, we were anxious to sail on Millennium. Needless to say we were extremely disappointed. We feel we have a little experience about sailing as this was our 19th cruise.
Upon entering the ship we noticed the ship looked tired, i.e. traffic patterns on rugs, etc. We prefer the center lower decks as my wife suffers from motion sickness. Our cabin left a lot to be desired. The upholstered chair was in dire need of reupholstering. The carpet was stained and needed replacing. The bedspread was washed out looking. But the biggest problem was our bathroom. Every day we had to call the steward as the toilet would not flush. The plumber was finally called but the problem continued. We were told the whole side of the ship was experiencing this problem. Finally on the last day the plumbing stopped altogether. In our shower we found black mold on the floor. Also at Lifeboat station 16 the smell of sewage was an ongoing problem.
One of the shows, "Salute to Broadway," we had seen before. The new show, which made its debut, was good. The magician was terrible.
The food was good. We have no major complaints in that department. We didn't eat in the specialty restaurant as we had on our previous Summit trips.
We have sent two letters to Celebrity Cruises, one to the president and one to the Captain's Club. As of this time we have received no response from either. We will be doing a rail/sail in March on the Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas. Hope we will enjoy this cruise more than the last. Unless major changes are made to the Millennium we will not sail on her again.
