May 2014 - Celebrity Millennium to Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)
After the April Hong Kong to Shanghai cruise on the Millenium (see other review) we took the ship from Tokyo to Vancouver. Some improvements on the Trans-Pacific route. Cabin ventilation wasn't a problem since we took a balcony cabin and had the door open most of the time - didn't have to sweat all the way across the Pacific. Since there were a lot of sea days the onboard activities improved a bit - there was more variety each day. The entertainment improved with a good classical component - a young violinist and Brooks Aaron. Standing room only concerts and standing ovations. People were starved for good entertainment and thank goodness we were given this. It was the highlight of the cruise.
The food continued to disappoint in its lukewarm, limp, overcooked, underspiced, mass produced way.
All the same cuts in amenities as discussed in my other review which give Celebrity a bare bones feel now instead of a luxury line.
