14 Night Bering Sea Crossing (Tokyo To Vancouver)
Sail Date: May 10, 2014
Ship: Celebrity Millennium
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)

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.

Lukewarm, dry, unappetizing most of the time.

Onboard Activities

With the large number of sea days the activities were more plentiful and varied.

They tried to be cheerful on a cruiseline where rboth they and the passengers are noting all the cuts and reductions.

Ship Quality

Still lots of rust being unattended. And the outside windows were still unwashed.

Cabin / Stateroom

Had to wash the balcony glass because we couldn't see the ocean

The fuss with visas and the lineups to tender ashore made us tear up our paperwork and stay onboard.
5 out of 5
The most beautiful city in the world.
