We sailed a 'back to back' from Vancouver on 7th June to Seward returning by the 21st June. We thoroughly enjoyed the sights, trips and scenery even though we had a few days of rain. So.. why not a rating of 5 ? - no relevant guest speaker on the Northern Cruise, instead we had lectures on the Mayan Peninsula and cave diving. Celia Garland, the naturalist, gave excellent talks on Alaskan wildlife on the Southern cruise - several issues regarding the Ocean View cafe...hot food often cool or cold, tables not cleared, guests in bathrobes and children in wet swim suits allowed in, many guests not sanitizing or washing hands on entry, the washbasins were often dirty and nearby washroom had toilets out of use for days - Main dining restaurant shambolic on first couple of nights on both cruises and the Evening Chic dress code was completely ignored with guests wearing baseball caps and ripped jeans - only suite guests have access to forward open deck and sun deck, a new policy which is restrictive to the overwhelming majority of guests - restrictions on entry to the Cosmos lounge e.g. kid's club uses the lounge for activities, sometimes until 10 p.m., private functions in the day time - poolside staff allowed guests to drink from glasses in the whirlpools There needs to be a tighter grip on the running of certain aspects of the Millennium. Would we sail with Celebrity again ? Probably...but on another ship !

Enjoyable cruise BUT........

- no relevant guest speaker on the Northern Cruise, instead we had lectures on the Mayan Peninsula and cave diving. Celia Garland, the naturalist, gave excellent talks on Alaskan wildlife on the Southern cruise

- several issues regarding the Ocean View cafe...hot food often cool or cold, tables not cleared, guests in bathrobes and children in wet swim suits allowed in, many guests not sanitizing or washing hands on entry, the washbasins were often dirty and nearby washroom had toilets out of use for days

- Main dining restaurant shambolic on first couple of nights on both cruises and the Evening Chic dress code was completely ignored with guests wearing baseball caps and ripped jeans

- only suite guests have access to forward open deck and sun deck, a new policy which is restrictive to the overwhelming majority of guests

- restrictions on entry to the Cosmos lounge e.g. kid's club uses the lounge for activities, sometimes until 10 p.m., private functions in the day time

- poolside staff allowed guests to drink from glasses in the whirlpools

There needs to be a tighter grip on the running of certain aspects of the Millennium.

Would we sail with Celebrity again ? Probably...but on another ship !

New lay out was excellent and kept clean by cabin staff. We had a few maintenance issues with shower tray and washbasin plug.
