MILLENNIUM - Review

MILLENNIUM

I sailed on the Millennium October 28th, 2001. This was a 7 night Eastern Caribbean Cruise roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale. The ports included San Juan, St. Thomas, Dominican Republic, and Nassau.

First I'll start with the itinerary. It was good. All places allow you to go to the beach and sun tan, if that's what you're looking for. San Juan was interesting and I'd recommend it for shopping. I found a beautiful dress shop (for women) that had good prices. St. Thomas was great too! This is a place to shop for eletronics -the best prices I've seen. Plus, Magen's Bay is a definiate place to stop at. Then we stopped at Catalina Island in the Dominican Republic. It was just like going to a private island. It was a day at the beach. Although there are some shore excursions offered if ou did want to go to the main island and tour. Nassau was ok. I was a bit disappointed. It was dirty and felt unsafe in certain areas.

We had a Category 2C Deluxe with Veranda. It was great! We used the veranda a lot. Opening the door to get fresh air whenever we were in the room and sitting out when we were leaving ports.

The ship itself is beautiful. Very similar to the Infinity, except where the Conservatory is they put a Sports Bar. It doesn't really suit the rest of the ship, but there were people using it. On the Millennium they put the Conservatory right near the nightclub. If you're not specifically looking for it you'll miss it. I recommend stopping to take a look. It offers beautiful silk flowers..I bought some home for X-mas gifts.

The food onboard was great. One day we didn't feel like getting dressed up for dinner (it was an In-Formal night) so we had dinner in our stateroom. They bought the main dining room menu and we had a 5 course meal while watching a movie. It was great!

The Olympic Restaurant is a must! I was on Infinity in May and went to the United States Restaurant. I enjoyed that so much that I told everyone at my dinner table about it. By the end of the week everyone at our table had gone and really enjoyed it! It was the most fabulous dinner I've had. It took about 3 hours and our waitre was excellent. He told us all about the restaurant and even gave us a tour of the wine cellar. We went on the last formal night because I like to miss the Baked Alaska in the main dining room. I had Cheese Souffle, Rack of Lamb and Chocolate Souffle...it was unbelieveable. The cheese souffle just melted in my mouth. The rack of lamb was so rich and cooked perfectly. The chocolate souffle I couldn't even finish because they also gave us a little starter and a cheese tray with crackers, etc. It costs $25 US per person, which sounds like a lot. But its worth every penny!

On Halloween many passengers dressed up. They had a costume contest and everyone had a great time. At the end of the cruise they showed the 'Cruise In Review' video. I loved that! You got to see people you've met, people you've never seen and all the good times that week.

The only bad thing was the DJ in the nightclub. Some nights he was good and some nights all he did was mix stuff...that's not my type of music.

What else can I say!?! It was a great cruise. I'm hooked on Celebrity Cruises (after my third time) and can't wait to go again!
