I recently sailed on the Millennium and would love to pass some information on to my fellow travel agents.
The food was surprising very good and well prepared. Actually that might have been their strong point. The rooms were large enough and well planned. I particularly enjoyed the layout of the shower in the bathroom(lots of room to move around in).
I was most disapointed in their Shore Excursion Program. Maybe the worse I have ever had the misfortune of booking. They were not organized, over-priced and not worthy of dicussing. Otherwise, the dining room servers were very attentive and service was good. I never saw my cabin steward accept to collect his tip. He never did anything to make our cruise special.
The entertainment was acceptable ,but not great. They need to improve in this area. Carnival Cruises is better.
They eliminated the Captain shaking hands with his passengers,because they were too many to shake. I had several clients on this cruise and they were so disappointed, and this the usual routine. In fact, many of us never saw the Captain at all, he appeared briefly on the step way.
Celebrity Cruises has such beautiful ships they could do better.
