You may call it what you want - Millenium is my ship !

Sail Date: April 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan

As an organizer of Cruise-trips for middle-size groups, we were very happy to on That ship that often !
Stayed in different Hotels in San Juan, which are most the same: Clean and good for that one night.. no more comments ! They know: tomorrow someone else is waiting for a ship, and needs a sleep over.
Embarkation can be a "very sunny action", while waiting outside. (The most royal Carib. ports have a better - longer Roof, so you are in the shadow,while waiting.
After youre through with that, a glass of champagne (or two..) is waiting at the ship. If you are not that early - youre cabin is ready to use. Very early birds on embarkation sometimes have to wait for the cabin.. ! Tip : Check you're dinner seating time and location, as soon as you get to know them. Now is the time to make changes if necessary.
The millenium is a ship, where the overlook is done pretty fast.
The cabins are really OK! If you like it bigger : take the aft ones, on the very tail. It's 2 More rooms with one big balcony. You see them from Deck 10.
Deck 10 has been the magic formula for our guests! It means : a little music when leaving the port - a nice Bar, and that wonderful air breeze feeling. The staff is always there.. even when you dont need them..but everyone has been very friendly! After a time we became real friends,and were happy to meet them at next cruise again. The food in the self-serving restaurant has a wide variety (but more is on Royal Caribbean) The Main Restaurant again has a better service and Food , as RC does ! Depends on what is really important to you.
The shows on board are excellent, but a little old fashion. Entertainment for younger people is not that much. Sometimes some games at the pool ( if you like it..) but always with a little too loud music ! (I'm not always in a party mood while laying in the sun, you know..)There are other decks, that are quiet! If you like it really quiet: go to Deck 4, where the lifeboats are! Be in the shadow of them or in the sun, just as you like it ! But if there's a real Pool Party : Don't miss it ! And don't miss the formal nights. If you like to wear youre Dinner Jacket - do it ( it might not fit anymore one week later..) But a Jacket and a tie will do also! The shoretrips offered by the ship are expensive ! In some ports you can do youre own trips pretty well, by taking a taxi for a half day or join one of the local companies at the pier. You'll see, whats trust able or not, the way they offer their tours.
After 5 trips the ship is on a different itinerary now. But we are glad to offer a "around the world tour" with the Millenium in October 2012, when this ship goes down to Asia for next years. Would we, as a sales group, go on a 67 days world tour with the Millenium, with paying guests, when not sure about the quality ? No ! Never ever ! But we do ! And I think, that should show up,how we like the Millenium and its staff ! Less

Cabin review: Celebrity Millennium Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Veranda Vista Deck (7)

Problems with Sea sick ? Order an outside cabin , down on deck 2 ore 3, mid ship Smoker ? Only on the ledt side of the Pool, and the Pool Bars, and on left side on Deck 10 bar ! Not (allowed) on Cabin Balconys ! And if you refuse that rule.. close youre balcony door probably ! Otherwise, the AC will suck it in the cabin.. the gangway in front of youre cabin..to youre Stewart ! That means :Trouble ! So close that damned door ;-) Better : check out for the last Balcony Cabin on any Deck..no neighbors to the wind pulling side. The same the other way around, if you dont like to smell some smoke: check out the front cabins.

Port and Shore Excursions


For the reason that shore excursions, sold by the Cruise line are very expensive, we organize them on our own. Then everything is on youre risk ! If the group of the ship is too late.. ship will wait. If youre privat group is too late : SHIP WILL LEAVE ! No further description of the ports ! You should see them all ! For all ports : if you go out privat, by taxi or walking : every Cab-Driver knows when you have to be back on board ! Use local busses, or collecting busses, but ask , were is the right place to wait ! You might miss them, waiting on wrong place ! The Bus tickets are affordable everywhere ! If you got lost - ask people on the street ! They know, you need to catch the ship, and they know, were it is. People on the Island are really helpful. Most of the cab drivers you can trust.
