  3. Celebrity Millennium
My husband and I chose this trip due to it's itinerary. We had done an inside passage cruise, but we wanted to visit Anchorage and Seward this time. We had sailed on Celebrity before and we were looking forward to experiencing the Millennium. It had recently undergone a "revolution" or refurbishment. The ship's cabins were redone and look fresh and offers lots of storage. A plus is the USB chargers in the cabin and a freshened up bathroom. The downside of the refurbishment is that the library was eliminated to make room for more cabins. If you are looking for a book and a place to read you need to go to a bar area. The dining in the Main Dining area was a disappointment in regard to food. Most dishes were smaller portions and often poorly seasoned. The kitchen seemed to have a problem with cooking pasta and couldn't prepare a proper Beef Wellington. If you wanted a better cut of meat such as a Filet Mignon, you have to go to a pricey specialty restaurant. It has to be noted that although the food was average or worse, the service by our waitstaff team was exemplary with our waiter Rizel. Our Sommelier went above and beyond to find us interesting wines for each meal. The overall experience was average to good with no overcrowding to speak of. The ship offered a number of activities but few that we were interested in. The one thing I was looking forward to were the talks by naturalist about the area and wildlife. Sadly they scheduled many of the talks in either the early morning during the breakfast hour or in the evening during dinner time or when other entertainment was going on. The ports were nice with friendly locals, but now have so many jewelry stores that it takes away from the local flavor of the stops. We opted not to go on excursions due to the price, but enjoyed the stops. Bottom line, this wasn't a bad cruise but simply an average experience. It makes me wonder of Celebrity has changed or if this was only on this ship.

A great voyage for Glaciers, but not so great food.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C
Cabin 2C 7049
This cabin is a "bump out" which means the balcony is larger than most. The cabin itself is the same size as the others.
