Boarding the Millie was effortless and we found our cabin easily.Cozumel can canceled due to the hurricane and disappointed that Nassau was to be the replacement. We were happy Key West would still be a port so we could experience a taste of Fantasy Fest.
After lunch with friends and exploring the ship, back to our cabin to unpack. Each time we got close to our cabin, we smelled a musty odor that never disappeared.
For the first day, we smelled the same smell in our bathroom. Finally after getting very close to the shower curtain did we figure out the smell was coming fromthe curtain. But, it still had that same odor in the hallway. A quick call to passenger services with a request to have the curtain changed, and the smell did not come back in our bathroom.
The dining room is lovely. Our table was in the middle of the room and we enjoyed view of the staircase. Unfortunately our waiter was less that polished. Venezia might have had a language barrier when communicating with us. What should have been a lovely dining experience became tedious each evening. Our assistant waiter was excellent.
Our steward, Norma, was pleasant but found her average. She should have never allowed the shower curtain to remain in the bathroom since it was yellowed and had grease stains, too. Also, she was stingy with the bath lotion. Had to ask her to replenish. Plus we had to ask for our pillow menu. Maybe the staff is taught to make the bed with the top sheet put on sideways. When you got into bed, the sheet was tucked in on the left and right, but not at the bottom. So your toes kept playing with the end of the sheet.
We've cruised on the Century twice and do prefer that ship to the Millie. We missed the martini bar and excellent dining room staff and food served.
