  3. Celebrity Millennium
This was an Atlantis charter cruise. After seeing all the advertisements in print and on TV my partner and I had very high expectations. Unfortunately most of my high expectations for superior cabins, amenities and food were dashed. On the plus side, the Millenium is a beautiful ship and the Med ports were almost all fantastic. The crew were also, for the most part very professional and friendly. The downside was the quality of the Concierge Class staterooms. They were recently replaqued as such but other than the plaque there was no discernable difference in room quality or amenities. Soggy appetizers and droopy, cheap flowers don't really count as extras. The carpet in the room was stained and aging, (I wouldn't walk in there barefooted) the walls were scuffed, there was dirt, dust and crumbs in the mattress frame, the balcony paint was chipped and rust-stained. In short these cabins are due for a major refurbishing. The other major downside was the food quality in all areas except the Olympic. The food was institutional and bland. A huge let down after spending a few days in Italy. The Olympic was marvelous. I do wish that Celebrity would add some more specialty restaurants. As other postings have noted, the 9th deck is indeed noisy due to the fact that it is located just below the pool deck. If Celebrity refurbished the cabins and upgraded its food offerings the Millennium might live up to its reputation.
