We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the price point. You get so much value on re-positioning cruises. We flew to Japan early to see Kyoto and Tokyo. The ports were Yokohama (overnight) then Hakodate, Muroron (Sapporo) and Petropavlovsk, Russia. While certainly not as large as the Solstice class, the Millennium is in excellent shape. Don't believe the negative reviews! We had an Aqua class room and it was as nice as those on a Solstice class ship -- though the configuration of storage was different. I actually like the closet on the Millennium better. I thought that Blu was even better than on the Reflection. Service was excellent throughout the ship. We were very fortunate in the crossing because it was quite calm most of the way. The weather was cool but the seas were well behaved.The captain gave us an added bonus. Instead of cruising straight to Vancouver, he turned into the Inside Passage. When the fog lifted, we saw fantastic scenery and some whales, eagles. Both embarkation and disembarkation were relatively smooth. Though our suitcase was damaged at the port in Yokohama, eventually the insurance paid the claim. We had a short wait n Yokohama, then they opened a separate line for Aqua class and it went quickly after that. An added benefit was the rooms were ready early. Getting off at Vancouver was a breeze. And our luggage was waiting for us when we got to the carousel.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class
Cabin A1 1138
This is a great cabin. It overlooks the out the outdoor seating of Ocenview Cafe; so, sitting on the balcony in a bathrobe is not really an option. However, since the temperature was relatively cool during the crossing, very view people were outdoors. It was quiet. Our room attendant was excellent. I actually like the closet configuration on this ship better than on the Solstice class ships.

    We had originally signed up for the Mt. Fuji tour, but the tour company moved the time up by over an hour. We decided to take this tour instead. We got to see more of Tokyo and were happy with the what we saw. The western style lunch was in a hotel and was ok. The tour guide was pleasant and professional.

Don't listen to the negative reviews of this ship. Granted, things can go wrong., but the aesthetics and condition of the ship are not in question. The The ship is in excellent shape.
