We have sailed with Celebrity five times and are booked on the Millenium last week in March for Eastern Carib. You will not go wrong with any ship in their fleet. As they had 7 of the top rated ships in their class. They are not party boats like Carnival, however you will enjoy yourself just the same. They have a great web sight and you can explore level of services. Check out the penthouse deck rooms back by the Royal suites as rooms and verandas are larger. Also service is excellent. Vista Deck has Conc. Level service and extras as well. Check them out at -------- www.celebrity.com

You will enjoy !

We have sailed 13 ships now with the last 3 being on the new Carnival ships and the next cruise on Millie again. The one thing we note is that Carnival is trying very hard to emulate the positives that Celebrity is known for. The specialty restaurant on the Millennium class ships is great (no dancing though there is background music). The 1A, 1B and CC balacony cabins are closer to the average size Carnival cabins; 190 SF vs. 185 interior. Celebrity has introduced some new amenities, like Welcome aboard champagne or OJ, Sorbet treat by the Pool, Cool towels upon re-embarkation from port, and of course, their white glove service. You won't have the public announcements 15 minutes before bingo and the art auction, etc. You will have activities but no towel animals, Entertainment and variety is fine not excellent, but don't plan to close up the disco in the morning hours. Time in port is usually very good. Give Celebrity a try. Variety is good. CC class offers some perks like pillows, towels, sheets, fruit and in-room dining, plus boarding early if you are not Capt. Club or in a suite, etc.
Bon Voyage.

We highly recommend the Hyatt "Pier 66" Hotel, which is minutes from the pier.It is on the Inland waterway, and has access to the Water Taxi, which costs $5 a person per day, ALL DAY, and you can get on and off as many times as you like. Great for sightseeing and shopping! Take your camera!!
