Default Is Millennium kid friendly?

Just booked what appears to be a beautiful cruise on the Millennium for next spring break (4/16) Is this a kid friendly ship? We have 2 boys (12 & 13) 1 girl (9).
They loved our last cruise on the Soveriegn of the Seas.

We sailed the Millennium in 2003 with our daughter who was 10 at that time. She really liked the Fun Factory. The program's counselors did a great job of keeping the kids in her age group active & involved. Form what we saw & talked to other parents, all the kids enjoyed the program which included scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, soprts activities & a talent show.

Hi there!

We JUST got back from cruising the Milllie on our honeymoon last week and we found out that there were 300 kids onboard. We saw them a few times, but for the most part they were occupied with the Fun Factory. What we DID see, however, was a LOT of older, older adults. My hubby and I were among the youngest couples on the ship. We had a nice time, but will look for something a little younger and more upbeat to celebrate our one year anniversary! Enjoy yourself, you will have a great time

Stefanie,

we are in our mid 40's, will we be too young for this cruise?
Can you give any highlights? Thanks for all your help....

Hi there!

If you and your husband are in your mid-40's I think you will still have a great time. Our table mates at dinner were in their early 40's and they agreed that the ship was overrun with a MUCH older crowd, but, like us, they made their own fun. If nothing else, just pull up a lounge chair on the 10th deck (actually, the 11th is better - more of a breeze and not crowded). That is what we did - just relaxed and basked in the sunshine!

Some of the highlights of our cruise were our nights in the Rendez-Vous lounge - the waiters in that lounge are OUTSTANDING! So nice and they were really the only ones on the cruise who made us FEEL like Celebrities!!! They have live music (not the best, but it sets the mood)... We also loved the commedienne on board, the casino was fun, all though not lucrative They had a karaoke night, which was also fun. We, personally, didn't find their entertainment to be that great - we, along with lots of other couples, actually walked out of one show because it was that horrible.

Even though we were still in Spring Break season, we didn't have any noticeable Spring Breakers on board - just a few teenagers that made themselves known.

Both my husband and I recommend that you do SOME type of shore excursion while you are in the Dominican Republic. The port that they dock in is in a very, very run down part of the town - luckily, we booked the Catalina Island excursion which was great. A 40 minute ferry ride, then a day on the beach - beautiful water However, there are a slew of hagglers that try to pester you to shop in their stores - once you either visit their shops or ignore them, they are fine. Just par for the course, I guess!

Anyway, if you have any other questions, please feel free to e-mail me. I will help as much as I can.

Stefanie

Momx4;

We will be on our 4th Celebrity cruise this summer on the Infinity. All of our Celebrity cruises have been with our daughter who is now 12yo, my wife is 38 & I'm 41. We do not feel that there's not enough activities while at sea, we always have something to do. When in port, we are always busy with a tour. I really don't care what the age of our ship-mates are as long as they are well mannered (bad manners come in all age groups). If you are looking for fine dining & being papmered I think Celebrity will not disappoint you. Most importantly, your child will be well entertained in various types of activities.

Stop worrying, I addressed your post on the family board as well. I'm 41 and my husband is 46 and we adore Celebrity. Yes, it will be a little more subdued then RCCL but in a good way. The waiters will not be singing and dancing in the dining room but there will lots of games and contests going on during the day at the pool. There are shows at night, great excursions to pick from and lots of great food. They even carry your trays for you in the buffet area. Who knows maybe we'll see you on board, we are still awaiting our school calendar. Have a great trip.
