Where We Be
Your cruise host Robin welcomes you aboard the Celebrity Millennium
Hawaii Celebrity Cruise -- Days at Sea
The nightly entertainment included Drums of Polynesia,
featuring singers and dancers from the Hawaiian islands
There's nothing quite like sailing one-way to
Hawaii to spark the imagination! Our 11-night
cruise aboard Celebrity Millennium with my
mom and dad started in Ensenada, Mexico and
took us in high style to these remote Pacific
islands. The first five days were relaxing days at
sea. Having never spent five consecutive days
at sea before we worried we might get bored,
but we ended up treasuring this downtime, not
to mention the food for which Celebrity is
justifiably famous. On our very first night we
dined on shrimp cocktail, Caesar’s salad, a surf
and turf of prime rib and sauteed haddock, and
creme brulee. The meal was fabulous and we
went from starving to stuffed in no time -- and
stayed that way for the rest of the cruise.

After our days at sea things got busy quickly.
We visited the ports of Hilo and Kona on the
Big Island, Lahaina on Maui (two days), and
Honolulu on Oahu where the cruise finished up.
Our "taste test" of these three idyllic islands
certainly made us want to return for more.
Two formal nights gave us the rare opportunity to get dressed up
Of course the food was fantastic, and our waiter Ian and his assistant Padilla gave us stellar service
Everywhere you go in the evenings you hear music being played,
from dance bands and piano bars to classic guitarists and string trios
Celebrity did a great job of keeping things interesting during our five days at sea -- including a series of five
highly engaging talks given by Michelle Thaller of Smithsonian Journeys on the solar system and beyond
Your table awaits!
The Sunset Bar, located high up on Deck 10 aft, offers a wonderful
place to while away an hour with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine
The indoor pool with its warm, bubbling water and adjacent hot tubs was another favorite
Poolside was the place to be during our five days at sea
Our floating city dwarfs all other boats. This is our second time sailing aboard
the Millennium (our first was a two-week Panama Canal cruise in 2004).
Ian from the Phillipines and Padilla from Peru helped make our cruise special
We had a great time being together with my mom and dad as always
Sailing to Hawaii will definitely put a smile on your face
