A great cruise

Sail Date: December 17, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

We spent a week in the Carribean on Celebrity's Millennium and had a wonderful time. Tremendous food, good range of activities for my wife and I and the three children (ages 8-13). Would definately do again.

The ship has been well maintained but is getting old so is in need of refurbishment (to keep up with the competition.

Pros: Fine Dining experience in the evenings

Cons: Long waits on phone to contact guest relations on board ship

Recommends Celebrity Millennium? Yes!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We went on a catamaran tour with snorkelling on the "Castaway Girl". This was well organized by its crew and who provided great guidance on snorkelling and were very hospitable during the tour. The snorkelling experience was good as we saw several varieties of fish, a sea turtle and a shipwreck which had several varieties of fish.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We really enjoyed seeing Old San Juan and the two forts. We found the people of Puerto Rico to be very friendly and the town to be very easy for tourists to get around in.

Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic
The free tour organized by Celebrity Cruises to Casa De Campo was not at all enjoyable. We went by shuttle bus to Casa De Campo where we saw a nice reproduction of a 17th century village (which was really a facade for highly overpriced retail stores). We were done in about 45 minutes but had to wait almost an hour in the heat (with 70 other cruise guest) for the shuttle buses back. No cabs were available for the return journey (I would have willingly paid my way back to the ship or to La Romana, the nearby town rather than be trapped ), so that I and my family wasted a lot of time in this activity. We really felt that there was no rush to get the passengers back until the last minutes when about 6 shuttle buses turned up around the same time to wisk everyone back. Celebrity Cruises needs to pay close attention to this. Cruise passengers who spend a lot of money on a cruise should not be treated this way!

Nassau, Bahamas
Good range of reasonably priced souvenir shops. Enjoyed going to Cabbage beach (a public beach on Paradise Island). Water was surprisingly clear and we saw several large shoals of fish and a stingray while swimming.
