Itinerary: Caribbean

I have read this review by your site and feel nothing could be further from the truth. This is an elegant line, affordable to middle to upper class people. We have been on various Celebrity ships and are taking our 5th cruise again on Millenium in 5 weeks. The service is outstanding and we have absolutely no complaints. My husband and I are 49 and have raised our children so it is geared to our age group and more quiet lifestyle. We have been on this line when there were several children onboard and they were well behaved and entertained.

Public Areas
Loved the Platinum Club for Pina Coladas . . .service was excellent, although I understand that the drinks on this cruise line are rather high priced as compared to other cruise lines. Didn't use the pool as it was crowded most times and are only issue with children was at the pool area - and not the children so much as the parents who were letting the children run and dive into the pool with no regard to people already in the crowded pool. Won at the slot machines, but not big gamblers. Seemed quite nice for a casino.

Food and Service
Dining room food and service was outstanding. Buffet was a little more disappointing in that our first experience cruising was on Celebrity Mercury and the buffet food was always hot . . . not so on Millenium nor our most recent trip on the Century. The food was outstanding but it would have been nice had it been hot.

Had a room at the front of the ship which we liked; however, there does tend to me more motion in the forward facing room. It was more than ample in space, plenty of closet space and yes, the shower/bathroom was more than adequate . . .and we are not small people ; a little over normal weight for that matter and we found no problems with space anywhere in the room.

I rate them as excellent but have heard from people who have traveled on Princess that Celebrity pales in comparison. However, having only traveled this line, I have to rate the entertainment as excellent.

We did the eastern caribbean. Due to propulsion problems, we missed the port of San Juan. We went to Magen's Bay in St. Thomas, their private island (Catalina Island in the Dominican Republic) and Nassau in the Bahamas. We visited each port and simply hung out on the beach. Onboard, we like just walking around the ship, having coffee or tea in the dining area (buffet), holding hands, sitting on the deck below the lifeboats (can't remember the name of it) but it is quiet even when there are people playing shuffleboard. I believe there is childcare and saw a group of young people being attended to in the show lounge one evening . . .they were extremely attentive and well behaved.

Who Goes
Our fellow passengers were kind and gracious. Our dinner mates were exceptional and we still keep in touch with a number of them. Yes, I would invite them to dinner. We have never had bad table mates.
