Review summary

We throughly enjoyed the Celebrity Millennium. I believe Celebrity will become our go to cruise line when we are traveling with other older adults. If the destinations are more important than having a theme park on-board then Celebrity is the cruise line for you. The food is much better than what we experienced on Carnival and Royal Caribbean. A smoke free casino was wonderful. We booked our next Celebrity cruise while on-board.

Embarkation

Great. No wait right on to the ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We were in AquaClass so we ate in Blu, not the main dining room. It was fantastic. We did have the buffet at lunch time and ate lunch in the main dining room once and all were very, very good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We spent a lot of time in the Persian Gardens (steam room, sauna, etc.). Outstanding.

Entertainment

Geared towards older adults, which is us, so I thoroughly enjoy it.

Persian Garden

5 out of 5

We visited the Persian Garden several times on our cruise. Very relaxing. The most we ever had was eight people in the steam room. More often we had the place to ourselves.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
We didn't have kids with us, but checked out the kid's clubs in case we take grandchildren with us on Celebrity in the future. Even though this isn't one of the mega-ships with a full blown water park, the kids really seemed to be having fun.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We bonded quickly with all and they took really good care of us. Can't say enough good things about the crew and staff

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We've sailed Carnival and Royal Caribbean in the past and this was our first time on Celebrity. Celebrity is our favorite.
