We traveled on Celebrity Millennium in November 2013 from Sydney to Singapore. We had chosen the rear facing Cabin 8172. We were travelling with our five year old daughter. We - the parents - are mid forties and like it quiet with reasonable food, but not very formal an a daily base. We only have done six cruises so far.
Many reviews made me nearly to NOT book this ship and cruiseline. I honestly do not understand those reports after having enjoyed a wonderful time onboard. I take into consideration the price I paid (Singapore based).
Embarkation and Check In. VERY GOOD. The boat docked at Circular Quay in Sydney. It was announced that the overnight might be tendered, but we docked for both days at Circular Qay!!!! That already is hard to beat. The baggage drop was very efficient, even when doing the drop of by car. After we dropped the baggage we went back to town. As we arrived for the real check in in the afternoon there was no queue or delay and we went within a few minutes onboard.
Great Cabin, very quiet, huge terrace, aft view.
