This was our second cruise on a Celebrity ship. The first was on the Solstice. We did not expect the Millennium to be in the same class as the Solstice so our expectations were set somewhat lower. We arrived at the Port of Miami at 12:15PM for our 4pm sailing. Porters immediately swept up our bags and sent us on to the check-in point. Personnel guided us effortlessly through the procedure with lightning speed. We were then on the ship at 12:45pm.
We were greeted with champagne and escorted to the cafe for a nice buffet lunch. We then had time to tour the ship on our own for several hours. We found everything very clean and orderly with all personnel very friendly and helpful. Music played in the pool area for our enjoyment. When we returned to our cabin at 4pm or so, our bags were delivered at to the door. Our inside cabin, 2165 was slightly tight. We wanted to go cheap on this cruise so we did not expect a huge room with the price we paid. Queen sized bed was comfortable. Typical bathroom. Sufficient storage for clothes. Flat panel TV. Huge mirror on wall at foot of bed. Room was quiet. Little rumble can be felt when you walk bare feet on floor. We were not in the room very much so we did not mine the close quarters.
Had 6pm dinner seating. Excellent waiter and assistant waiter. Food was Celebrity delicious each night. Little disappointed that there was no lobster served on the cruise. Beautiful and yummy brunch served on the second the last day on cruise. Gorgeous ice, fruit, cheese, and vegetable carvings. Buffet at the cafe was ok. We ate breakfast at the Metropolitan Restaurant every morning. Very good.
Great shows every night. Don't miss those. Cosmos was fun for dancing each night. Show crew gave dance lessons every day in Cosmos night club.
If you don't want noise, you can find a quiet place on this ship, outside or inside.
Ship is showing its age however. It will go to dry dock in April. We were told it will get new flooring and 2 new specialty restaurants.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on the Millennium. Great competent crew combined with great food and entertainment how can you go wrong. Plus the price is right. We paid $900 for the two of us including taxes, etc.
