Photos of Celebrity Millennium: A Peek at the Suite Life Onboard

  • When Celebrity Cruises announced a massive fleetwide overhaul of its ships in 2018, the line emphasized that suites and suite-only spaces would be one of the main targets of its Revolution refurbishment program.

    Cruise Critic got onboard Celebrity Millennium, one of the first ships in the fleet to undergo the Revolution refurbishment. Here, we present a peek at the suites and suite spaces, all of which were completely transformed -- or added -- during the refit.

    Suites - Before

    Before Celebrity Millennium went under the knife during its Revolution refurbishment, the suites onboard -- like this Royal suite -- featured a somewhat drab, traditional cruise feel with cherry wood cabinetry and walls, padded floor-to-ceiling headboards, dark carpeting and accents that included green marbled countertops.

    Suites - After

    Post-refurb, the suites on Celebrity Millennium -- again like this Royal suite -- have an airier feel, thanks to a lighter color scheme that, while still neutral, emphasizes grays, whites and creams over various shades of brown and tan. The result is a pleasant, modern look that's more reminiscent of an upscale land-based hotel than a cruise ship.

    Sky Suites

    Every suite onboard Celebrity Millennium was completely refurbished, including the entry-level Sky suites. These one-room suites maintain the peaceful, muted look the cruise line's main interior designer Kelly Hoppen favors, but there's a splash of color via wall accents, artwork and bed throws.

    Sky Suite Bathroom

    The suite bathrooms, in particular, are impressive in their luxuriousness. The white and gray faux-marble walls and floors give the bathrooms an expansive feel, while the spa tubs and glass-enclosed showers add a touch of extravagance all suites should have. The Royal and Penthouse Suite bathrooms are even grander.

    Penthouse Suite

    The largest rooms on the ship are the two Penthouse Suites, each of which has a living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, pantry and massive wraparound balcony. Much like the rest of the suites, the penthouses feature a muted design with wood floors, marble accents and plenty of natural light. There's even a pod chair to give it that fully modern feel.

    Penthouse Bedroom

    Like the rest of the Penthouse Suite, the private bedroom is oversized and has its own entry onto the large balcony, which lets in plenty of natural light. (There are blackout curtains for when passengers don't want it spilling in.)

    The Retreat Lounge

    One of the largest changes Celebrity made to Millennium during the refurbishment was the transformation of Michael's Club into The Retreat. The suites-only lounge and bar had previously boasted a somewhat traditional pub-style decor, but the new space is noticeably more sophisticated and modern, partially surrounded by glass walls and filled with light-colored furniture.

    The Retreat Sun Deck

    The most exciting addition given to Celebrity Millennium during its Revolution refit, The Retreat Sun Deck is an exclusive two-level space reserved for suite passengers. The beautiful enclave located toward the front of the deck and overlooking the helipad features an array of loungers, day beds, couches, tables and chairs, and even oversized throw pillows for sitting on the deck, along with a large hot tub.

    The Retreat Sun Deck

    While the lower level of The Retreat Sun Deck is pretty much reserved for sunbathing or relaxing in the hot tub, the upper level has plenty of space for snacking alfresco or socializing with new friends on couches.

7 Dumbest Cruise Mistakes Ever
We've all been there: almost getting your Romanian spouse forcibly debarked -- and expatriated; sprinting through the St. Thomas jungle to catch your departing ship; eating three of Guy Fieri's 1,000-calorie burgers in one sitting. Perhaps not, but as Bram Stoker wrote in Dracula, "We learn from failure, not from success!" What has failure taught Cruise Critic's editors and contributors when it comes to cruising? Do your homework on visa requirements, and triple check that you know how to get where you're embarking. Be careful what you eat and what you book. Read our seven mini-stories of supreme stupidity, have a laugh at our expense, and vow never to make the same mistakes.
Best Time to Cruise
It's one of the most common cruising questions: When is the best time to cruise Alaska, Australia, the Caribbean, Canada/New England, Hawaii, Europe or the South Pacific? The answer depends on many variables. For example, fall foliage enthusiasts will find September and October the best time to cruise Canada/New England, whereas families prefer to sail in summer when temperatures are warmer for swimming. The best time to cruise to Alaska will vary depending on your preferences for viewing wildlife, fishing, bargain-shopping, sunshine, warm weather and catching the northern lights. For most cruise regions, there are periods of peak demand (high season), moderate demand (shoulder season) and low demand (low season), which is usually the cheapest time to cruise. High season is typically a mix of when the weather is best and popular travel periods (such as summer and school holidays). However, the best time to cruise weather-wise is usually not the cheapest time to cruise. The cheapest time to cruise is when most travelers don't want to go because of chillier temperatures or inopportune timing (too close to holidays, the start of school, etc.). But the lure of cheap fares and uncrowded ports might make you change your mind about what you consider the best time to cruise. As you plan your next cruise, you'll want to take into consideration the best and cheapest times to cruise and see what jibes with your vacation schedule. Here's a when-to-cruise guide for popular destinations.
