  3. Celebrity Millennium
The "Millenium" is a beautiful ship. We have sailed on the "Mercury" twice before and loved her too, but the "Millenium" is a very special, very elegant ship to say the least. Our Concierge Class Cabin was roomy, restful and welcoming. The queen sized bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of storage space. The balcony was large enough, with 2 comfy chairs and a small round table. The bathroom was the largest we have had on a cruise ship of this category, and very well laid out. Most importantly, it was extremely quiet, which is something we treasure. We dined twice in the "Olympic" Restaurant, and is was delightful. The service and food was excellent, and the room itself reminiscent of a bygone era, with wood panelling and crystal lighting. The main dining room (the Metropolitan) was also very good. The service and food were first class with a good variety of dishes and styles. We chose the late seating at 8.30pm and this proved to be perfect for us. The buffet area "Ocean Cafe" was great for breakfast and lunch. The variety and quality was good, with all the usual specialty stations for eggs, pasta, ice cream etc. It was sometimes hard to find a seat (the ship was full), but we always got one after a few minutes. Now to the entertainment - it was fantastic !!! Probably the best we have had on any cruise (9 cruises to date, including Crystal and Holland America). Kate, the pianist in Michael's Club was brilliant. What a wonderful entertainer she is. She would light up the room every night with her vibrant personality and extensive repertoire. She even entertained us on shore (in her own time) at the Red Onion Saloon in Skagway, much to the delight of the packed house who sang along with their old favourites. Also the A Cappella Quartet, Chamber Music Quartet, and D'Revelation Party Band were exceptional. The Celebrity Dancers and Singers were outstanding, and the Production Shows always thrilled the audience, often finishing to a standing ovation. We booked our Shore Excursions on line before we left, and everything ran smoothly and efficiently. You certainly could save money if you organised these tours yourself, but we opted to have everything pre-arranged to save time. All in all, this was a very memorable cruise - for all the right reasons !!! We would happily recommend Celebrity in general, and the "Millennium" in particular to all our friends and family. You will not be disappointed either.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Skagway
    Skagway was just wonderful. Our ship berthed an easy 10 minutes walk from downtown, but a shuttle bus ran the whole time if you didn't want to walk.
    This is the gateway to the Klondike and Yukon, where the Gold Rush actually started. The town itself is very small (800 population at it's peak in summer), but full of old historic buildings and charm, surrounded by soaring snow covered mountains.
    A "must do" in this port of call is the White Pass and Yukon Railway Journey from Skagway up to Fraser in British Columbia Canada (takes about 1.5 hours). The train travels the original route used since the late 1890's, and the scenery is both dramatic and magnificent. There are open air viewing platforms at the end of each carriage for stunning photography too.
