I don't think that was an employee who posted those addresses - just someone who thought it was a good idea to post the information on the board.

Where is the place to go to reserve the Olympic Restaurant? We want to make sure we do, and we leave this Sunday. Thanks

Right when you get on board - go directly to the Olympic Restaurant. It is on the main floor if I remember correctly.

We just wanted to look at the room because it is so gorgeous and the employees in there were very helpful. They showed us the menus, etc. . This is the time that many people booked and were able to reserve the time and date they wanted.

We ended up not reserving a room but those who did loved it.

We sailed on the Millenium in October. I would not consider another trip. Foul odor in cabins that room stewards tried to fix but it was clear it was a ship wide problem. Food and service did not live up to Celebrity standards. When I tried to complain, I was told that a supervisor would not be available to speak to me until after 5pm. I was at the desk at 10am and couldn't figure out why a supervisor wouldn't be there until 5???
Heard lots of complaints from fellow passengers. Very dispointed in this ship....

Dan- WRITE them a letter and email them also--they NEED to hear from you.

If I heard a post from you about the sewage odor ahead of time , I would have changed ships---

And it's really funny that when I called Celebrity Exec.Sales that the lady hadn't heard of the sewage problem--esp.since you had it in OCT!!

Did you also have problem with your cabin door keys not working? Our's only worked part of the time-a mess--but we lived with it...

Did you fill out the questionnaire and tell them of the sewage problem?Sure hope so!

I emailed each and every one the names posted @Celebrity. It is too late to change since we are leaving this Sunday. I have had some people who still enjoyed the ship, so let's hope .....

We sailed on the Millie in Feb. 2001 and had the sewage smell/problem. We complained about it so apparently they know and can't fix it or don't care. Anyway, we're booked on the Constellation this July and hope the same problem isn't there.
(We're only sailing Celebrity in July because Ren went bankrupt)

Haven't you folks figured it out by now. The larger the corporation the less they care about you. RCCL and CCL will shortly control everything by buying up their competitors. Then they can control the industry and do what they want. The people that continue to go, "Better luck next time" are just the kind of people they are looking for. You are afraid of adventure. And,they play on this fear. Even the Paul T.'s of this world never really explore anything. These ships provide you with a safe haven so you don't have to really try anything new. You have your own little insulated worlds on these ships. You don't have to learn any new languages, customs, or real history. I thought that trying both RCCL and CCL would give me a better point of view. It did, stick to the smaller lines you'll actually learn something and have fun.

Bette Ann,

My wife and I just came back from last week's Millennium cruise. It was our second cruise, both with Celebrity. The first was on the Mercury. Our third cruise will be with another line. As much as we enjoyed most of the week, what good is it if you're rockin and rollin most of the time. Granted I'm not a seasoned cruiser but I did hear a few guests that have cruised extensively and they had never felt such motion before. Especially for the way the Caribbean appeared. Most of the problems occurred on the first few days to San Juan. After that it seemed to get better. Did they fix the stability problem for the return home? Or was it the sea conditions? Got me! I did experience the sewage smell on one occassion. I can't exactly remember where on the ship I was at the time. On a positive note, sign up right away for the Olympic Restaurant. Outstanding! Also if you're looking to try the spa, look into the alpha capsule and the reflexology treatment. Good stuff! Have a great time!

Jim,please tell me some other positive things, we are all sick!! ( after reading the bad reviews) How was the food and service in the dining room? Did you do any excursions? Any thing in particular you would recommend to do at the ports? We did hear that the entertainment was great. How was the service in general from the crew??Did any of the crew have any explanation for the rocking? Thanks ( I hope, lol)

Hi,

The ship has had rocking and vibration problems ever since day one. It has been to dry dock at least twice and it still exists. It was definitely there but it was not unbearable or untolerable. You just noticed it was present. I don't remember any one from our very large group getting sick.

Bette Ann - Don't worry about your trip. Even though it was not my favorite ship/sailing of all of my cruises - I still had fun.

The ship is truly beautiful, the cabins are large, the ports are great, the lounges are outstanding, etc. .

If you are eating on the bottom level - you will have better service. I say this because it doesn't take as long for the food to reach the cruiser.

Just go and have fun. Even if it isn't the best ship you will have been on - it still is better than any land based trip I have taken. It would not be my first choice of ships again but I wouldn't turn down another chance to sail her.

Please post a response when you get back!

The Millenium is a GREAT ship! I puzzle at these posts about motion - if I sailed and there was no motion, I would have to switch to a ship that did have motion - I don't want a floating city! We sailed the Mille in 2001 and loved every minute. We did feel some noise/motion at dinner that I thought for one second, "gee, hope this does not continue" then I forgot about it, and the motion I felt in the room can only be described as a gentle rocking - how I would love to have that every nignt! IT IS A SHIP! And a gorgeous one at that. You will have a great time - do not let anyone dissuade you from the that thought. Delight in all the possibilities!

Thanks Nancy for the encouraging words. And for those who told me to contact Celebrity, I did and received a call from the corporate office and was told we would be put on a VIP list, sit at the Captain's table, and that he would do all he could to prove that Celebrity still lives up to the standars they are proud of.et's hope he follows through. Thanks to the person who posted all the emails, it worked.

Bette Ann- I am THRILLED that you got a call back --Now I KNOW someone is listening and it is GREAT!

The Captains table is on the 4th floor- which is the lower dining room floor- so your waiters are closer to the kitchen.

Go and have a great time and PLEASE post when you get back!!!!!!!!!

We just returned and had a GREAT time-NO SEWAGE SMELL, NO ROCKING. HELLO< ALL YOU COMPLAINED WENT DURING HURRICANE SEASON!!!! Afer I wrote Celebrity, we got on prority, sat at the Captain's table, got a tour of the bridge, VIP treatment the whole time. We had great service, the food was good, great entertainment, absolutely No complaints. Someone has to complain. I just hope everyone gives the ship a try, it is elegant!!
