We took this cruise as a gentle way to go home to Canada from Japan. (We had done an around Japan cruise with Windstar beforehand) It was very enjoyable, food great, staff lovely, entertainment good. There were alot of sea days together but we got a routine of trivias, podium talks, hot tubs and eating in the day as the weather was too cold to be out on deck much or in the swimming pool. The speakers were entertaining, one gave talks on major trials. Another did Buddhism history and meditation and a third did varied talks from Rasputin to dog behaviour. The afternoon progressive trivia was fun if you had got a team together. It wasnt too rough so seasickness wasnt an issue either. We did have to change our clocks forward about 6 separate times to be on Vancouver time by arrival butbetter than getting full jetlag. So repositioing was worth doing, although the stop in Russia was a waste of time except to stretch your legs! Read Less

As Millennium was the first ship to be part of the comprehensive fleet wide Celebrity refurbishment programme (February) I hope the following observations will be of interest. So, welcome to the Kelly Hoppen land of grey and brown. I didn’t think I would like it but it is ok for a couple of weeks. Whether this currently trendy combination of colours will stand the test of time does, of course, remain to be seen. It is smart but a touch boring for my tastes and I hated the wish-washy “art” in the cabin behind the bed. Anyway, the cabin ( Aqua, deck 9) was fine. The large round illuminated mirror was lovely. It added to the sophistication of the room. Comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and functional bathroom. No complaints (a small plumbing problem was quickly resolved). The food in Blu was mainly very good (a lot more hits than misses) and we enjoyed the environment. Service was good but the additional Aqua cabins do seem to have created congestion at peak times which is hardly surprising when Blu is still the same size. It is an issue which Celebrity need to address. The changes to the buffet were my favourite alteration to the ship. Great layout with use of counters and stools which were an efficient use of space and, also provided viewing places. The use of white tiles and logos worked well. The food maintained a good standard. The Sunset bar area at the back of the ship has received some criticism, although we thought it looked good and did provide enough shade. However, it was Japan in April and not the Mediterranean in July. All the lounges looked good with mainly perfectly sensible and comfortable seating. Sun loungers were all new and we enjoyed regular use of the Persian Garden. Musical offerings are important to us and I do appreciate that this is a subjective topic. The Cruise Director, Steve, was excellent. Lovely chap. The programming of music was perfect. Great use of the lounges at the right times. Bryan James, singer and acoustic guitarist, was a highlight. His sessions in Cafe al Bacio were particularly memorable. The house band, Bristol Fashion were very good and nice to talk to. The instrumental duo were also outstanding with a guitar providing so much more variety than the usually ubiquitous cello. The theatre was mainly used for music and comedy. We didn’t go to everything but those we did attend were good. Celebrity seem to be phasing out the costume singing and dancing extravaganzas which, personally, I welcome. The one we did see was incomprehensible and, for me, unbelievably tedious. Quizzes were run by one very good girl and two pretty awful chaps. I am sure they have talents but not in the quiz arena. This was the poorest aspect of the cruise. Fellow cruisers were lovely. It was one of the most sociable cruises we have taken and their company was much appreciated. Staff were outstanding. As helpful and friendly in all areas of the ship as one could ever wish to encounter. As mentioned CD Steve was really good, as was Captain’s Club host, Graeme, from Zimbabwe, who was never lost for a good story. Japan was a surprise. Amazing country, amazing people. We look forward to returning. The one ship’s tour (Mt. Fuji) we took was very good with an excellent guide. Everywhere else we made our own arrangements. It is difficult to rank cruises but of our 14 (9 Celebrity) this was as good as it gets. The combination of itinerary, the management of the ship by the amusing Captain Alex (and Captain Theo) and all their staff and the fact that Millennium was like a new ship contributed to our enjoyment of the cruise and our sadness that it had to end. In summary, the successful refurbishment was critical to the pleasure we experienced on Millennium. Read Less

I always choose my cruises by timing and itinerary. I'd sail the Good Ship Lollipop if she's going to my desired ports at the right time of year :) This was ocean cruise #12 for me, and I've sailed Celebrity, RCCL, HAL, Carnival, and Cunard. As most are aware, Millennium just completed a drydock and was "revolutionized" two months ago. She's looking great. We liked the design and colour choices, the staterooms have a LOT of new and efficient and great looking storage (enough for a mother and daughter to comfortably share!). New furnishings are tasteful and quite nice. We had many wonderful interactions with crew members. Our stateroom attendant (Jose, from Goa) was one of the best I've ever seen. Proactive and helpful, personable, courteous, always a smile, just terrific! The Cafe Bacio serves wonderful specialty coffees and teas and the baristas there (especially Satoko and Carl) seem to have 16 hands and be everywhere at once, multitasking and friendly and moving things along beautifully. We found the MDR menu disappointing (just too "white bread" for us) and unfortunately all of the most best foods were served on the 2nd last night (3rd "Elegant Chic" evening). These could have been spread out through the 3 EC nights, has to be a budget decision but an unfortunate one. For the first time in all of my cruising career, I dined at the buffet in the evening just as often as in the MDR. Buffet isn't busy in the evenings and there are live cooking stations where you can get made to order stir fry, pastas, and grilled items like steak, chicken, and fish. It did not appear that any money was spent in the theatre during the refurbishment, but we enjoyed the production shows and the visiting entertainers. Due to the VERY port-intensive itinerary, we were in bed too early to attend some of the shows. More important to be rested and ready to rumble for some of the longer and more strenuous shore excursions. We had the Classic Beverage Package (as a free perk) and felt it was great. We consumed many bottled waters per day (now they come in aluminum cans which is a very smart decision), multiple lattes, and a glass of wine or two with dinner. Oceanview could be very busy at prime time at breakfast and lunch, with seating for 3 sometimes difficult to accomplish. But this has been the case with every ocean cruise I've ever done (especially on sea days) so was not unexpected. We ended up having breakfast in the dining room quite often (seating is not a problem there) and if we were onboard at lunch time we dined at off-peak times if we were all together. If I was on my own, I could always find a place to sit. We did have to constantly check our folio as items that were intended to be free as "loyalty" items within our Captain's Club status would be charged to the folio and some took a few visits to Guest Relations to resolve. But in the end, they were handled. All in all, we felt that Millennium was looking terrific, our expectations were met perhaps with some exception in the MDR, and the ports were generally well handled by Celebrity and were exceptional in terms of things to see and do. Very happy to have done this cruise with my 2 adult children onboard Millennium. I'm actually back with Celebrity on a sister ship, Constellation (pre drydock) in early 2020 and very much looking forward to that itinerary as well. Read Less
