  1. Hello All: Soon to sail the Beautiful Edgeified Celebrity Millennium. Cannot find any information on the Captain, Hotel Director, F&B Manager etc. Does anybody have a copy of a current daily or happen to know who is currently onboard? Thanks in advance,
  2. We returned from our transpacific cruise on the Millennium last week and I thought I'd add a little information (and some opinions) to supplement what is already posted here about the "revolutionized" Millie. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have; note that we didn't continue on to Alaska, so can't comment on that. Also, since we weren't in a suite, I have no info on the Retreat, Luminae, etc. (Although we did participate in the cabin crawl on our roll call, so we got to see all categories of staterooms except Penthouse.) CABIN: We were in 3119, one of the newly added cabins on the port side near the midship elevators. There had been much discussion on these boards about whether these cabins would be smaller than other OV cabins, whether they would have the extra-large windows or the regular windows, whether they would be noisy from the foot traffic going to or from Tuscan Grill. I'm happy to report that the cabins are the same size as the other OV cabins (and, in fact, the same size as the veranda cabins) and they do have the extra large windows. Since this was a cold weather cruise with mostly sea days and not much scenery, we were completely satisfied with our huge window instead of a balcony. As for the location, it was perfect- very convenient to the elevators/stairs, near Guest Relations, etc. It was in a closed-off hallway so there was NO foot traffic from any other venue, therefore very quiet and private.
  3. The Celebrity Website states that Millennium is still operating Qsine????? Is this correct? We loathe Petit Chef.....Enjoyed the variety Qsine brought. If still on Millennium, are they planning a changeover? Thanks, on Millennium for a couple weeks and we know no Murano or oceanliners etc......Safe Sails to all!
  4. I am sure that this has been answered a lot and after doing some research on here we already moved out of 9094 (which the Celebrity rep recommended) to 9140. This appears to potentially be around crew areas, which could be noisy if doors are slamming frequently. We are also aware of Deck 10 being above us, which could have its own cons. Currently have a lot of choice of rooms, what would you experts suggest? I would rather be on the starboard side, as in theory will see more (I believe anyway). This is for 11th Sept 2020 Vanc-Tokyo: Seasickness is not an issue, so do not mind the location of the stateroom with regards to this.
  5. We sailed on the Millennium prior to the ship being renovated and were assigned Stateroom 9125. We enjoyed the room and found it to be very quiet. The current Deck Plan depicts a renovation to the Oceanview Cafe on Deck 10 above Stateroom 9125. We have been assigned that Stateroom for an upcoming cruise. If anyone has stayed in Stateroom 9125 since the renovation , we would appreciate any input that you could provide regarding your experience. Thanks.
  6. Hi everyone, can anyone who has sailed on Celebrity Millennium post revolution please tell me how many power outlets are in a CC stateroom? Also, are there USB outlets on each bedside?
  7. Not sure if this is "new news" re Millie.... We are booked on Millie April 2020. Qsine is my fave X restaurant and I followed threads during and shortly after the recent refurb and was very happy when it wasn't replaced. I booked us into Qsine for our first night. Today I got a phone call from X to tell us that Qsine is being replaced with LPC. They offered to move our reservation to LPC and honor the price we had paid for Qsine so we accepted. We have never tried LPC so will hold judgement until we do... we do have it booked for a cruise next month on Reflection. What I loved about Qsine is the variety of dishes....you can go more than once and have a totally different experience. I understand that LPC is more of a fixed menu so is sort of a "one and done" type of thing. I guess I will soon find out.
  8. As prospective Millennium cruisers with allergies to chemical smells, could anyone who has been on the Millennium since its renovations in February 2019 let me know whether you smelled any "new room" smells (from the new furnishings, carpets. etc.) in the cabins and staterooms?
  9. Does anyone know where the bed is located in cabin 9097 on the Millennium, by the sliding door or bathroom? Celebrity is saying that all the beds in Aqua are now against wall in middle of room since redo. Is this correct? Also, is the smell of smoke a problem, as under area where people can smoke. Any information is greatly appreciated.
  10. Are the beds in Millennium veranda cabins (specifically I'm booked in Concierge class, but I assume they are the same in all veranda cabins) able to be split into two twin beds?
  11. We finally made it to Singapore and are onboard Celebrity Millennium. We travel for two days, Miami to London on Virgin Atlantic and then London to Singapore on Singapore Air. On Virgin Atlantic we were on Premium Select (would HIGHLY recommend it) and on Singapore Air regular coach. Singapore Air is definitely better than most airlines when it comes to regular coach, but after flying a total of about 26 hours, I would opt for Premium Select the next time for the whole trip. Due to work we arrived the same morning as the ship embarkation date of 3/2. We booked this trip before the news that the Millennium was going to be the first ship to go through the ‘Revolution’ process. We picked this cruise because of the itinerary. This is a 14-day cruise leaving out of Singapore and cruising to Hong Kong. 3/2 – 3/3 Singapore 2 days at sea 3/6 – 3/7 Port of Laem Chabang (Bangkok) * overnight in this port is reason #1 why we picked this cruise 1 day at sea 3/9 Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City aka Saigon) 1 day at sea 3/11 Port of Chan May (Hue / Danang / Hoi An) 3/12 – 3/13 Halong Bay (Hanoi) *overnight stay at Halong Bay reason #2 1 day at sea 3/15 – 3/16 Hong Kong * overnight in Hong Kong reason #3 I have been researching and planning this trip for the last year. Once the Millennium revolution was announced I read all that was available on Cruise Critic to get an idea of those changes. I know that people are curious about the changes, so I will post pictures of the ship and our cabin in the next post. Some background, I became an avid cruiser about 10 years ago. Most of our cruises have been on Celebrity and as a matter of fact our first Celebrity cruise was an Alaskan cruise on Millennium in an ocean view room. We have sailed mostly in the S class in Aqua class. We were also on the Edge on its first three-day preview cruise. Originally we were booked on Aqua class room for this trip, but when the price dropped (5 months before the cruise) on a suite we grabbed it. We grabbed room 6145 once it became available about 4 months before the trip. On this board everyone is always talking about this room since it’s the S1 room right next to the Penthouse suite. The room is really different than the other S1 suites, my sister and mother are staying in 8117. There are things that I love about this room and other things that for me personally are OK. This is also our first time in a suite for this length of time. We were in a S2 suite on the Edge for the preview 3-day cruise. Concerning the ship, I love the new colors and most of the changes. They are still working on some things, but nothing that big that takes away from the enjoyment of ship. Still jet lagged so I have not seen all of the ship. Later on today I will post pictures of cabin #6145. If you have questions about the Millennium or about this itinerary ask away and I will try to answer them. Lourdes
  12. Anyone signed up for this followed by cruise July 26 2019? I’ve never been on a land tour prior to cruise, what to expect? linstadt

  14. Howdy Cruisers. We're on Millennium soon and I love my beer - good craft beer that is. I'm wondering can any like minded individuals who have cruised recently on Millennium give me some insight as to what I can expect and the best locations on the ship to find the hoppy nectar? Looking forward to the feedback - thanks in advance.
  15. I have 6144 booked on a future cruise on the Millennium and noticed a few aft C1s on deck 7 are available on that cruise. Having quiet time on our balcony is a big part of our cruising experience. We also prefer shade to sun so having a covered balcony is important to us. We were in 6144 on the Millennium on a recent cruise and discovered there's no canvas covering the balcony like there is on the Summit. After doing some CC searches I've read that the deck 7 C1 aft cabins on the M class ships have deep balconies, and are mostly covered. So I'm leaning towards switching to one of these but I have a few questions and looking to get advice and info from the experts here on CC. For those of you who have sailed in these cabins recently, did you experience any noise from other decks? I've read that people in the Aqua aft cabins on deck 11 could hear the movie playing loudly and some were impacted by that. Does anyone know if the noise extends to deck 7? Also, what type of furniture is on the balcony since the renovation? I'm assuming it is the new deck chairs, but no footstool and no loungers. Is that correct? I know cabin location preference is a personal choice, but I would very much appreciate hearing others' input and opinions. Thanks so much!
  16. Hello everyone. This is my first live blog, and I make this post recognising that I am standing on the shoulders of some of the giants of live blogging on Cruise Critic! Hopefully I will be able to meet their standards and post regularly with tons of useful information. I wanted to do this live blog in appreciation of everyone else on Cruise Critic who provided SO much information about the 'revolutionised'' Millennium which we board this Friday for the 14 day China, South Korea and Japan cruise. We are my husband Alan and me (Maree) and my two sisters and their husbands: Jenny and Alan, and Elizabeth and Tom. We are all in our late 50s and 60s. I run my own consulting business so have some flexibility with scheduling a cruise, but Jenny and Elizabeth both work in schools, so our family cruises have to be scheduled around school holidays - and this cruise was perfect timing and length (14 days). Alan and I have been to Shanghai, Beijing and Tokyo before, and Alan has been to Seoul and JeJu Island as well. Kate, our daughter, went to Japan a couple of years ago, so I've used her brain too in our trip planning. Everyone else has never been to these parts of Asia. We started to do family cruises when we realised we were 'orphans' after our mother died in 2015, and that those family holidays with our parents would be no more. We decided to cruise every few years to give us a way to add to our online contact and occasional get togethers in Australia - we live at opposite ends of the country, so getting together is usually organised around an event, birthday or similar, and the availability of cheap airfares! This is our second cruise together; our first was a South Pacific cruise on the Solstice in 2016. It was the first ocean cruise for Jenny and Elizabeth while this cruise on Millennium will be our twelfth with Celebrity. I have my own travel blog - Travelling & Cruising - and I'll be posting there too, that in turn, will post automatically to my Facebook Travelling & Cruising page - so that takes care of the sharing side of things! I will, of course, aim to answer your questions, but I must warn you now that Alan and I aren't night owls and usually wind down after the nightly show - so I'll have to task Jenny and Elizabeth with finding out required information about evening entertainment and activities. They stay up late - I get up early. So, a bit about what we have planned so far. We booked this cruise in mid-2017 after the success of the South Pacific cruise and started planning seriously mid-2018. We had originally booked veranda staterooms on Deck 7 but because I am a bit obsessive about checking the Celebrity website for price changes, I discovered one day not too long ago that the price of Aqua Class cabins were now $44 less than what we had paid for our veranda staterooms. And even better, three cabins in next to each other (9102, 9014, 9106)! Joy! We can dine in Blu again! I was soooo very excited. We had been in Aqua Class on two earlier cruises and loved Blu. I changed our cabins and - oops - only then did I check the cabin list on Cruise Critic to discover that - of course - there is a reason for such luck so close to sailing. These three cabins are underneath toilets and the OceanView Cafe on Deck 10 so we n t expect some noise. But honestly, I'm not even sure that knowing that beforehand would have stopped me from booking them - I really, really, really wanted to eat in Blu again! We have arranged to meet in Sydney on 27 March - we live in Melbourne, Jenny lives in southern Queensland and Elizabeth in North Queensland - meaning a long way apart from each other. The next day we fly to Shanghai where we embark. We are staying at Rydges Hotel at the Sydney International Airport, literally steps away from the terminal. We fly Qantas leaving at 10.55am in the morning and arriving in Shanghai about 6.30pm that same night. It's only a two hour time difference - less than the three hour difference between Melbourne and Perth in Australia - so we should, for once, not have to put up with jet lag after a long haul flight. We have a private transfer booked for the airport and are staying at the Fairmont Peace Hotel. Jenny's travel agent booked all the transfers and accomodation and I smiled when I saw the Peace Hotel on the itinerary because Alan and I had stayed there in 1984 on our very first overseas trip. It was a bit of a Shanghai landmark then so I'm keen to see whether renovations have changed its character - I hope not. We have planned a four hour walking tour the next day, following by a three hour river cruise and dinner in the evening. Since my time is my flexible and I'm not really a just in time planner, I ended up - with everyone's agreement - taking the lead on organising tours. I would have done this if we were sailing by ourselves and quite like doing it, so I was happy to find what looked like good tours and send details through to Jenny and Elizabeth and we collectively decided what to do. Here's what we are doing: a ship tour in Seoul (Art of Seoul); a two day overnight tour of Bejing, and a rest day on the ship for our third day docked at Beijing; a five hour tour of JeJu Island main sights, Day 1 in Kobe, I've booked a Shinkasen (bullet) train ride to Kyoto where we meet our guide at the station for a half day tour - the train ride will be short but it was on our list of 'must dos'; Day 2 in Kobe we have a full day walk tour; in Shimizu (Mt Fuji) we have nothing planned and will decide once we are on the cruise; the final stop is Yokohama where again we have nothing planned, but I am a bit of a Disney fan so I suggested Tokyo Disneyland but the others aren't convinced; we have three days in Tokyo post-cruise and again, nothing planned, although I have a list of possible places and things to do! There is more info about planning and the tour companies I have used here. There have been quite a few posts and photos now on Cruise Critic about the new Millennium but if you have any specific questions, let me know them now, and I'll aim to answer them as soon as I can. We fly to Sydney this afternoon, and I'm doing the happy dance because our points upgrade to Business class has come through 🙂
  17. Hi all! I'll be sailing with Celebrity for the first time on the Millennium on July 5th. I was wondering if anyone had a photo of the new (or even before the recent dry dock) of the Millennium's thermal pool? Or if anyone could advise me what to expect as far as the spa goes on that ship. I appreciate the help!
  18. We are leaving on the Millennium from Vancouver to Alaska on June 7th, 2019 and have downloaded the Celebrity App. It tells me that I will be able to message other passengers through the app. I would like to be able to message my husband without paying Verizon's exorbitant fees and we did not buy the wi fi package on ship because we are not interested in using the internet on ship. How did the app work for people who have just come back from sailing on the Millennium. Thank you
  19. Good evening can anyone provide some information on the Persian garden on Millennium please? I loved the heated tiled loungers on the Silhouette - do these feature on Millennium? i would also like to understand the improvements for aqua class since the revolution upgrade. Many thanks
  20. Sorry if this is discussed before but I'm obviously not using the search correctly. We just upgraded to an A1 on Deck 11. I've never been in these cabins. Is there any covering at all on the balcony? How is the noise level? Are they more windy? Thanks again.
  21. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2000/Cruise-Ship-2138-Passengers---Stock-No.-S2281-3016984/United-States#.WfhZspLyi71 Floris
  22. Is the roof top terrace on the Millennium open to all passengers? I believe the Retreat Sun Deck is restricted for Suite passengers, correct?
  23. We initially booked one of those triangular balcony S1 cabins on both the Millie and the Infinity. However, since they were both TAs and X recently added all 4 perks as an option when booking TAs, we found it was a better deal to refare those cruises down to a S2 cabin and use the difference to in effect pay for the 4 perks. Besides location and sometimes balcony size, is there any other differences between a S1 and S2 we're overlooking?
  24. We are aboard Silhouette and Qsine is Le Petite Chef. The menu is very limited and the space is closed and unappealing to us. We've decided to forego a dinner there. When we were on the Infinity a few years back Qsine had quite an extensive and exotic menu. The restaurant was located at the top of the ship with remarkable views. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience then. We are booked on the Millennium in December 2019 and wondering which Qsine will be on board. If anyone is currently onboard and would care to take a picture of the iPad menu, that would be much appreciated!! Thanks for any info... trying to decide if we'll buy a multiple night package of specialty dinning.
  25. I have been looking at pictures of the revolutionized sky suites and don’t see any drawer space. Has any one been on since the changes that can tell me about drawer space. Also are the new sofas comfortable for sitting? Thanks in advance
