Default Millennium Review -08/12/00 -Cabin View

We were not surprised to hear that the Millennium was scheduled for dry dock. The ship did vibrate (once or twice a day) when using the aft port and starboard jets.

Odds and Ends:

a) VCR's are in all suites and cabin category #3 (but not in category 1 or 2-strange).
b) The ships weather channel gives the current and forecast weather conditions over a view of the bow from the bridge web cam.
c) The mini bar must be opened (once) by your cabin steward with a remote control.
d) The water pressure in the cabin was excellent and we encountered no plumbing problems.
e) All stateroom contained terry cloth robes (excellent quality).
f) The view from the Vista Deck aft cabin was terrific (see attached photo-looking port side forward).
g) The bathroom contained a 900W hair dryer with large air flow.
h) The closet contains a safe. Use a 6 digit code to close and open safe. The room key (magnetic card) or credit card option does not work with the safe even thought the "card swipe" is installed.
i) Keep up with your time and schedule. Few announcement are made over the PA system (very good-a quite atmosphere).
j) The cloth inserts on trays in the Ocean Café were a nice touch. Ample staff was available to help (if needed) with trays and seating.
k) Your boarding card (plastic) may be either white (standard), gold (category 1, 2, 3) or platinum (suites).
l) The "Notes" (CD library listening room) was open only a few days???
m) The library was VERY limited in book selection.
n) Waiting lines few if any for all activities.
o) The Theater was well laid out and ALL seats were excellent for viewing. Theater was large enough that one had to only arrive 10 minutes before shows to get a "good" seat.
p) The "production shows" were good/OK but other individual performances were excellent/good.

Love Sailing: thanks for all the info. A question? What category are you in? We are booked for a 2-C on the Penthouse deck with a verandah. Do you think this is a good choice? We've never sailed before and really appreciate your mini reviews each day.

We booked a 3C cabin but were upgradded to a 1C, Cabin 7185 on the port side aft (see attached photo). We had an ideal cabin.

Looking down, we saw partially into the next deck's larger verandah which were 1/2 covered with a canvas top.

Looking up (3 decks), we veiwed the overhang of the Ocean Cafe and the port holes in the floor.

Piick your cabin and deck carefully.

Thanks for the continued updates of a well-balanced nature. Question: once the cabin steward unlocks the mini-bar/refrig, are you free to use it for your own items such as bottled water, fruit, juice? Hope you continue to enjoy the cruise.

Yes. We brought our Wal-Mart special, $1.99 insulated water bottle, that we chilled each night for the next days shore excursion.

We even chilled our own wine in the ref. or sometimes we asked the cabin steward for a chilling bucket (see attached photo).

Enjoy your cruise!!!
