This was our 11th cruise, but our first withCelebrity Cruises. In the past, we havecruised with Princess and Royal Caribbean and have always had wonderful experiences and hardly ever found anything to complainabout. We were a little skeptical to cruisewith Celebrity after reading some of the negative reviews (and we thought there werea lot), but decided to give it a go and trysomething different, and were anxious to explore the Millennium. Let me tell you, everything from boarding to disembarkation was absolutely wonderful. We got to the port about 11:30 a.m., went right through the fast moving short lines and went directly on board. Although you cannot "check into" your cabin until 1 p.m., we placed our luggage in our cabin and went to explore the ship. Cabin: Was roomy (good size bathroom and shower)Cat. 1B. Our cabin steward was wonderful and our cabin was always clean.Food: Our dining room servers (a team of 2 females) were very polite and professional.Food was delicious. Even at the lunch buffet, the servers wore white gloves and carried the trays for the women. Staff: Were extremely friendly, helpful and always happy, or at least seemed to be. Entertainment: The shows and the bands that played in the lounges and certain areas were quite enjoyable. Be sure to experience the The Olympic Restaurant. There is an additional charge, but well worth it. We would recommend that you reserve your night as soon as possible after boarding, and try to reserve a night at the beginning of the cruise before everyone catches on. We did two evenings in the Olympic and enjoyed the first evening (first formal night) more than the second. Service was much better and slower paced because they were not as busy. The ship itself is absolutely beautiful and very well layed out. The decor and art is very cool. We also had no rocking or vibration whatsoever, and did have some rough seas. We could not figure out how so many people had so many complaints. We thought everything was top notch, and will never hesitate to cruise with Celebrity again, and again, and again.....
