Even though we were disappointed with the cruise on the Eclipse(see review)in February, we came back to Celebrity since it was the only ship that matched our schedule. Maybe our expectations were low based on the Eclipse but the Millennium was a pleasant surprise.
The embarkation was worse than the Eclipse which was strange since it was a smaller ship and also was not full. We waited about 25 minutes. They should consider a separate line for people that have all their documentation done versus those that need to fill out forms that they forgot to complete.
Since the rooms were not ready we had lunch in the buffet. As on the Eclipse it was not very good with long lines and limited selection. It was better on the next few days with a better selection especially with Asian dishes.
The cabin was laid out well and had sufficient storage. The outside overhang would be a problem if you wanted to sun yourself but it made the balcony cooler. Too much noise from deck above activities by crew. Bathrooms need an upgrade and replacement of wall mounted hair dryer.
The normal duty free stores and not much else. It rained so going to the beach was out of the question. It would seem that the cruise line would try to work around other lines at these ports.
