Spectacular and Memorable Cruise

Sail Date: September 01, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We took the Southbound cruise from Seward to Vancouver. From the moment we arrived we where treated to a level of luxury that we have never experienced, even better than some of the luxury hotels we have stay at prior to this. The entire crew was very pleasant and helpful with all our accommodations and requests. We will be booking another cruise with Celebrity either on the Millennium or the Equinox. We just wish we had done the Cruise Tour, as there was not a lot of Wildlife to be seen during the cruise.

Pros: Concierge Class Stateroom was Spectacular and worth every cent.

Cons: Disembark and transfer to Bus was very chaotic and disorganized

Recommends Celebrity Millennium? Yes!

Children's Programs
We looked at the Arcade and Youth Center when we boarded and wandered the ship to see everything. They had teen evening activities like club night and Wii contests and lots of things for younger kids. We did not take our son but are now rethinking that after seeing that they had things to keep kids busy and entertained.
Ship Quality
Millennium was very clean and well kept. Glass Elevators, Walnut Paneling, Hammered Brass, Teak, Art and Sculptures through out for Dcor. WOW! They really pushed the hand Sanitizer through automatic stations and crewmembers walking around with jugs of it.
Food and Dining
The evening seated dining was 5 star. Half of the menu was always the same, Grilled Salmon, Steak, Salad, Soup etc. The other half changed every evening and was wonderful from the Oysters Rockefeller, Steak Tar-Tar to the Baked Alaska. Great Wines, Cognacs and Cordials.
Cabin / Stateroom
We stay in the Concierge Class Stateroom with a Veranda. Turn down service with mints after dinner, bed made by the time we got back from breakfast. If we needed ice, any of the 4 different pillows, fruit basket refilled, towels or laundry service was just a phone call away and there was even more that we didnt know about until the final couple days. The size was just right, not to small for 2 people. Glad we brought our own Binoculars as the ones in the room where not that powerful. Being able to order in room breakfast. Ordering shore excursions in our room was easy through the interactive menu on the TV, better than standing in line in the main lobby.
Service and Staff
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We saw a couple of the crew in town a couple times when we stopped. They greeted us and told us of special sites to stop and see.
There is something for everyone on the ship. From Wii sports contests, bingo, wine tasting, darts, a sports bar, dancing, the gym was amazing and wish we had brought our swimsuits for the indoor therapy pool. The shows in the main theater where entertaining and they had a different Movie in the Movie theater everyday. They had a Texas Holdem tournament (limited to 1 table) a couple times a day at sea and cash games in the evening in the Casino. Nickel to 5-dollar slots and 3 card poker.
