Pleasantly Surprised

Celebrity Millennium Cruise Review by twin9

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2016
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A

After reading some bad reviews of Millie, we were a bit concerned about the experience we would have. However, for us, all was well. The cabin 7014 was well placed at the end away from noise an bustle, cabin steward Patrick was efficient and friendly. In fact, all the crew went out the way to smile and say hello. The food in the main dining room (we had anytime dining) was very good and we could not fault it. Our waiter Rey was in a class of his own, nothing was too much trouble for him. Did not go on any of the cruiseline excursions but instead, did our own thing or booked ahead with outside agents. The tours the cruise line offered were at least double the amount of money we paid for the same itinerary.We were not hassled to upgrade (which we had read in some of the reviews before boarding the ship) and so all in all we had a very nice time. Cruise ports were a long way from the main attractions in a few of the ports; however, we knew that before boarding so it was not a surprise to have to travel two hours from the port into Saigon or Hue. The entertainment was top notch and we thoroughly enjoyed the variety of the different shows. We did not think that there should have been smoking allowed on one side of Deck 10 as people had to walk past there on the way to the buffet. Smoking should have been allowed far away from any general area.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A
Cabin 2A 7014

Very good placement and quiet.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Clean as a whistle and easy to get around on the MRT system. The gardens by the bay were wonderful and also nice to see Raffles

Koh Samui

tender disembarkation was a riot. There should have been someone in charge that had a grip of things. People who obeyed the rules getting a ticket for the tender were penalaized. Those who ran down and got in line without a ticket were given superior treatment. which resulted in a near riiot.

Bangkok (Laem Chabang)

Went on a transfer bus to Pattyia. Cruise line did not tell you that this option was available. It only cost $6 each way.

Da Nang

did not go on excursion due to being quarantined
