My sister and I sailed on Millennium on 11/4 through 11/18 and had a fantastic time. I might add this was my first cruise and first trip to Europe. Our embarkation was easy and swift, our luggage arrived within a few hours and our cabin, although small, was suitable for our port intensive trip. All our information was gathered before our leaving so we were able to relax after a 25-hour journey with little sleep. We had a virtual tour of the ship online and had booked our shore excursions long before the trip. I might add that the ship-sponsored excursions were inconsistent to say the least, some were exceptional and others were...well, perhaps herding cattle would describe it best. Some guides were great, others went through the motions of getting us from A to B without loosing anyone. Some were very informative and others seemed to be reading their descriptions of things. This, I would say, was my biggest complaint and it really doesn't amount to much since we booked ½ of our tours (on my sisters advice) by private guides.The ports of call were absolutely amazing,Rome,Istanbul,Athens....wow! On the ship I found some activity to do almost every moment I wished to. Everything from BINGO to Texas Hold 'Em, with art shows and auctions in between. If you wanted activities you just had to look at the daily newsletter to find one. The shows were fun and shopping was great, I found some unique things to bring back along with my port purchases. The staff was friendly and polite and Elton and Kumar were outstanding as our steward and waiter respectively. The food was very good we dined in the Metropolitan every night but two, I was even offered a tour of the galley which, having been a cook years ago, I really enjoyed. I'm hooked, I've been home one week and I'm looking forward to my next cruise. Thanks Millennium, I'll be back
