Default Anyone just back from Millennium?

Is anyone very recently back from the Millennium? How is the odor problem?

I was on the Millie April 2 - 9 and we experienced terrible odors. We nicknamed our cabin "the outhouse". The hallways on several decks had terrible odors too.

I heard that they found a sock in the sewer lines shortly afterwards. I know this has been an ongoing problem, so want to hear if they have finally fixed the problem.

My friend and I are looking for a cruise for December, and I'm not eager to get on that ship again. We're considering the Mexican Riviera on the Mercury, but water and air temps keep us coming back to the Caribbean.

Can someone confirm whether this problem has been corrected? Thanks.

froggy,

A sock in the sewer line certainly would account for an odor problem!

We're considering the Mexican Riviera on the Mercury, but water and air temps keep us coming back to the Caribbean.

If you like the Caribbean, you probably also will like the Mexican Riviera. The ports are not islands, but they are quite different from one another. All of the ports of call are in the tropics, and they offer great beaches, snorkeling, swimming, and other watersports as well as diverse attractions ashore. The air might be on the cool side on the first day and the last day, when you are in transit to or from San Diego, but it's sometimes cool off southern Florida, too.

Have a great cruise, whichever you decide!

Norm.

There were 9 of us on the April 2-9 Millie cruise and never heard a word about an odor problem. Where was your cabin located? We were anywhere from midshifts to aft.

Norm,
I wish the odor was only of a dirty sock!
Thanks for the overview of the Mex Riv. We'll keep that in mind. We're still not decided, but you're right about southern FL, it can be cool at times.

CruzNut,
We were on deck 9 midship. Odor was bad there as well as other areas.

Isn't ANYONE else out there back with a more recent report?

No doubt! But if it backed up the line and caused something to overflow... well, you get the idea!

Thanks for the overview of the Mex Riv.

You're welcome!

Norm.

I was just recently on Millennium and I have to say...that ship stinks like a t*rd.


I heard that it was from gases seeping out from the valves of the waste tanks but GOSH... that just doesn't seem normal.

I'm sorry CRUZNUT but there is/was a horrible stench on Millie. Maybe you're just are too much of a nut to notice!

Ok, so GTS knows what I'm saying. Has your nose recoverd?

Your cabin must have been near mine and far away from CruzNut's.

And I thought my friend and I were "nutty", but we BOTH smelled the stench!!!!

I was on deck 2 and it smelled really bad almost all the time. I can't see how other passengers did not smell the smell. I don't think I will ever cruise on that boat again. I sure hope somebody has some answers as to why that boat stinks.

Ok, who is paying off all CruiseMates posters to remain so silent about the stink on the Millennium?

I have appreciated the courteousness and demeanor of the posters here on this board as opposed to a different cruise board, so wanted to post my question here rather than there.

After not seeing much of any response here, I unwillingly went to the other board and saw much discussion on the topic.

This is definitely a problem, not something that I or others have sensationalized. I was on board, with a cabin on deck 9 mid-ship and we very frequently smelled the sewer odor on that deck from the forward staircase to mid-ship. We also encountered the odor on other decks as well as inside our cabin.

So really, is someone paying off the posters to remain silent? Is there really no feedback from cruisers that have returned from their Millennium cruise?

I just have to ask.

Wow! Must be good money.

Well, I'll quit wondering if the stink problem on the Millie has been corrected.

My friend and I decided against the Millie and booked the Mex Riv cruise.

Why is information so hard to come by these days?

Anyone care to share their payoff since I've quit wondering and won't ask any more?

We sailed the Millie leaving 4/30 from FLL transatlantic to Barcelona.
We had a deck 8 cabin and we still could smell the odor stinky but not too much as we walked to the bow end going to the theater and upper decks.
It was not bad.

Had a wonderful cruise and highly recommend the Millie. She is a great 6 years ship.

Thanks for responding. Shame that there was still the odor problem on your sailing.

Glad you had a great time.

Froggy - trust me, no one is getting paid by Celebrity or their parent company RCI to cover up problems on Millennium. Just haven't heard anything. But obviously I believe it is possible.

I guess I just wasn't too surprised because I have been on a lot of "stinky" ships, especially in the mornings when I guess most people "evacuate" and the stewards open all the cabin doors.

Sounds like this is a bit more of a problem, though.
