  3. Celebrity Millennium
We have cruised on several lines from the basic to the luxury, but first time on Celebrity... The Millennium was a beautiful ship, well laid out, with first class amenities - reasonable prices for beverages - decent prices for spa services - good mix of entertainment.

and service was excellent -- throughout the ship.

But food was a disappointment - EXCEPT in the Olympic Restaurant, where it was outstanding the three times we ate there -- the $30pp charge was well worth it -- the ambiance, the service and the food - were the best in any specialty restaurant we ate in.

However, food in the main dining room, second seating, left much to be desired...it was at best, inconsistent. One the first day, the steak that my wife ordered had to be returned as uncuttable and inedible....My slice of prime rib, and her replacement slice, were perfect.... on the third day, the steak again wasn't cut-able.. perhaps its the lack of proper steak knives, although the steaks we were served should have been able to be cut with the serrated knives offered. On several other times, the food was served cold and had to be returned.

On the positive side, the menu selection was great, the apple pie a la mode, was the best ever on the seas.

I was also disappointed when I tried to book a spa appointment using a coupon, and was told that only inconvenient hours were available for coupon users--they did find a more appropriate time.

Cabin was great, plenty of room for luggage storage, shelf and hanging space

Comfortable beds and pillows..

Bathroom left some things to be desired -- lighting was poor; shower had curtain that didnt reach floor, so floor was soaked after each use. Single sink did not have much counter space...

Light switch to turn off overhead lights was only one side of bed. There were morning announcements every time we docked (about 8am) which was piped into room -- it should be turned off if one wants to sleep later.
