We cruised the Millenium last year and loved her. However we will need to leave from an East Coast port (w/in driving distance of Charlotte)and sail in late Feb or early Mar 2004. Any suggestions?
ncdebe: Since you live in Charlotte (and I'm assuming you live in North Carolina), you might want to look into the Galaxy cruises out of Baltimore. It wouldn't be a too long of a drive, about 8 hours. I've been on the Galaxy twice, and it's still my favorite ship of all in the Celebrity fleet.
There are 10 and 11 day cruises to the Carribean leaving Baltimore during February/March 2004.
I suggest you consider the Zenith out of Jacksonville. The Zenith will offer 11-14 day cruises from October 27, 2003 through April 11, 2004.
Jacksonville is about a 7-hour drive from Charlotte.
If you're looking for more convenience, several cruise lines (just not Celebrity) have begun operating out of Norfolk, Virginia. The Carnival Victory, Holland-America's Maasdam, and the Radisson Seven Seas Navigator (starting next May) are among your choices. Norfolk is about 6 hours from Charlotte.
Good luck deciding.
