This "review" contains a few comments and observations about our September 18-30 (2004) Mediterranean cruise aboard the Celebrity Millennium. It does not include a full review of the ship or the ports as these have been covered in other reviews. However, I try to comment on items that would have been of interest to us prior to taking the cruise for anyone considering a similar itinerary.
As background, my wife and I are 50 and 51 and live in Florida. We've cruised 19 times, 18 of which have been in the Caribbean and Bahamas aboard various ships in the Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess and NCL lines. This was our 7th cruise with Celebrity, our second aboard the Millennium. While we have traveled outside of the US (e.g., Hong Kong, Bali, Singapore, Beijing, Australia, Mexico, Canada, and most Caribbean nations), this was our first trip of any kind to European countries. My point is that we did not know what to expect in Europe beyond what we had read about.
Overall, the ship was in very good condition, food quality was very good and the service was fine (with the exception of the dining room sommelier, who was responsible for many more tables than any one person could ably cover).
