Where will Millennium go now?

Recommended Posts

My Apr 10 sailing cancelled. I wonder where the ship will go now. I’d like to still go on it even if it is for Alaska or west coast US. 

 

Thoughts?

We were thinking about this the other day...Perhaps across to Hawaii for a cruise or two and then the West Coast? 

 

If If I was in your situation I would be ringing X and asking them...Lots of people with work commitments will have fixed holiday dates and if your cruise isn’t happening (or is going somewhere you don’t want) the sooner you find out the better...Even if they cannot tell you yet (they are probably at the stage of trying to make it up port by port...) you could at least express an interest. 

 

When we cruised from Hawaii and visited the West Coast it was cheaper to fly into Europe (Paris and Amsterdam) and then across than fly from Heathrow...just a thought as you start putting new plans together.

 

So sorry your cruise has been cancelled, sincere best wishes for a fantastic cruise somewhere!

According to Celebrity, Millennium is being taken out of service until May. A huge loss in revenue.

I've seen mentioned of redeployment to the West Coast.   Good chance of a Hawaii to West Coast and then a couple west coast cruises until Alaska season begins.    Stay tuned I'm sure it will start posting soon.

And I expect these new last minute itineraries will be very good deals when they open up.  Wish I was looking to add a cruise in that timeframe.

Here's a story  in   Seatrade News which has Millennium going to the west coast and offering cruises to First Responders.

 

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. is redeploying two ships from Asia to humanitarian efforts in Australia and California to support some of the people affected by recent crises. 

Spectrum of the Seas and Celebrity Millennium

Spectrum of the Seas will be deployed from China to Australia for free cruises from Sydney in support of Australia’s first responder community during the bush fires crisis. And Celebrity Millennium is repositioning from Asia to the US West Coast to offer a series of sailings for California firefighters and other first responders.

Royal Caribbean noted the coronavirus outbreak has caused pain and disruption around the world. 

 

'When things go wrong, we want to find a way to help'

‘When things go wrong, this is a company that wants to find a way to help,’ Chairman and CEO Richard Fain said. ‘At Royal Caribbean, we consider ourselves fortunate to be able to use our ships in a positive way during difficult times.’   .........

 

'Cruising for Heroes'

Celebrity Millennium, meanwhile, is heading to the US earlier than scheduled, as previously reported, and will now offer a series of ‘Cruising for Heroes’ sailings in support of California firefighters, other first responders and veterans throughout March and April. A variety of three-, four- and five-night sailings have been added to the brand's offerings to travel the Pacific Coast. The cruises will leave from Los Angeles, and details will be announced soon.

‘The women and men of Celebrity were keen to have this opportunity to give back, even though this repositioning presented a challenging timeline,’ Fain said. ‘We know the hard work and sacrifice of those who have been keeping Californians safe, and it feels good to be able to say thank you.’

‘While the circumstances have not been what any of us would have wanted, we now have the opportunity to show the state of California our stunning Celebrity Millennium and do some good in the process by honoring and helping our everyday heroes who do so much for so many,’ added Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO, Celebrity.

We were booked on the 28 March Millennium and like you still wanted to cruise the same period.  We just booked the Eclipse 7 day sailing from San Diego to Vancouver departing 30 March.

 

It's a great itinerary and an excellent price, certainly after Celebrity deducted the 25% FCC they offered for the cancelled Millennium cruise.

Just booked two Aqua cabins on Millie for April.    They have the same price of $1,099 pp for 11 night Alaska cruise  in Oceanview, Concierge and Aqua.    Since it is less than 90 days bookings are NR.
