Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins onboard the Celebrity Millennium

Deck 2 -- Continental Deck

Some cabins on the Celebrity Millennium Continental Deck are going to be quieter than others on this deck because cabins directly above on Plaza Deck will create a buffer from noises public areas can generate. Generally, even the cabins underneath Plaza Deck's public venues are not likely to create much in the way of after hours noise, such as the sounds that may drift in from the casino or bars. Public areas above you on Deck 2 of the Millennium are from the Grand Foyer, meeting rooms, the cinema, and the specialty steakhouse which are not open into the wee hours of the morning.

  • Best cabin picks on the Millennium Deck 2 are exterior cabins 2001-2109 and 2000-2098. These are all underneath the cabin area on Plaza Deck and likely to be more noise free than others like them on this deck. Recently, however, we have had negative feedback about noise issues that were experienced in cabin 2001.
  • Exterior cabins 2137-2185 port side and 2152-2200 starboard, ans interior cabins 2135-2192 are all under the public areas on Plaza Deck, so it is possible to hear activity from the specialty steakhouse, the meeting rooms, the Grand Foyer, and the cinema. Once again, we do not suspect that noises from these locations will be an after hours concern.
  • On Deck 2 of the Millennium, inside cabins 2031 and 2022 are larger and wheelchair accessible, but both happen to be next to elevators and may have resulting noise issues.
  • Midship on the Millennium's Deck 2, interior staterooms 2135, 2139, 2154, and 2156 are by the stairs and could have noise concerns.

Deck 3 -- Plaza Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Several cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Cabins on Deck 3 of the Celebrity Millennium are reasonably well situated to avoid noise from the theater and the aft main dining room, but there are still some concerns with several staterooms on this deck because the Promenade Deck activity above includes noise from the night club and casino. It is possible to find a quieter cabin on Plaza Deck with a bit of careful planning, however.

  • Forward on the Millennium Deck 3, inside cabins 3021 and 3018 are larger and wheelchair accessible, but both are situated right next to the stairs which could mean some concerns with noise.
  • Cabins to think twice about are exterior staterooms 3025-3111 port side and 3022-3108 starboard, and interior staterooms 3029-3109 and 3028-3110. These cabins are located beneath pubic venues, and inside cabins are most likely to have noise issues. Directly beneath the casino are exterior cabins 3065-3111 port side, 3064-3108 starboard, and interior cabins 3067-3109 and 3070-3110. If you are light sleeper, you may prefer to find a cabin elsewhere on the ship, bring earplugs, or invest in a wave machine (a sound device available at a specialty retailer like Brookstone -- produces pleasant sounds that can wipe out the unpleasant sounds).
  • Some of the worst cabins onboard the Celebrity Millennium are on the Plaza Deck. While we are not suggesting the cabins on this deck should be completely avoided, there are staterooms on other decks which will be quieter.

Deck 6 -- Penthouse Deck

.***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

The Penthouse Deck is arguably the high-rent district of the ship. The best cabins onboard the Celebrity Millennium are generally onboard the Penthouse Deck. This is where all the suites and penthouse category cabins are located. Given that this is where the high-dollar cabins are, this is also where the Celebrity Millennium's best cabin stewards are usually assigned.

  • Forward, Ocean View Staterooms 6004, 6005, 6012, and 6014 are more spacious than standard and are wheelchair accessible. Of these, 6004 and 6005 are the largest on the Millennium Penthouse Deck.
  • Midship on Deck 6 of the Millennium, Ocean View Staterooms with Verandas (6103, 6105, 6107, and 6109) are all larger than standard, have larger balconies, and are wheelchair accessible. We do caution that cabins 6105 and 6107 are right next to the elevators and could consequently be noisier.
  • Sky Suite 6102 has a smaller, semi-private veranda. On the Millennium Deck 6, there are several other Sky Suites of the same class which do not have this concern. These are 6099, 6100, 6101, 6102, 6125-6131, 6126-6132, and 6145 and 6146. Best picks of these are Sky Suites 6145 and 6146 because these are located aft right next to the Penthouse Suites where staff service is likely to be superb. While Sky Suites have the least suite square footage, with 251 sq. ft. interiors and 57 sq. ft. balconies, these accommodations are certainly cozy but not cramped.
  • Sky Suites 6131 and 6132 have oddly shaped & slightly larger balconies than standard.
  • Best picks for a top notch Concierge Class Stateroom with Veranda on Deck 6 of the Millennium are 6135, 6136, 6143, and 6144 because these are all situated aft near the Penthouse Suites. Concierge Class Staterooms feature some extra amenities which include priority check in, expanded room service menu, evening hors d'oeuvres everyday, and seating preferences for the main and specialty restaurants.
  • Midship on Deck 6 of the Millennium, Celebrity Suites 6104 and 6106 do not have verandas, but do feature floor to ceiling windows and 467 sq. ft. cabin space.
  • Midship to aft, Ocean View Staterooms and Sky Suites 6111-6129 port side and 6114-6130 starboard could have some noise filtering through from the lounge directly beneath. However, this is a rather upscale caviar and martini bar and likely to be far less noisy than a dance club or disco.
    Staterooms and suites 6135-6147 port side and 6134-6148 starboard are over the second tier of the main dining room. Noise is not likely to be as much of a concern, however. The main dining room early morning prep and after hours clean up noise is most likely to be heard from a stateroom underneath the first floor of the main dining room. (Thanks to the thoughtfulness in the design of the Celebrity Millennium, there are no cabins under the main dining room.)
  • On the Millennium Deck 6, the most luxurious accommodations are deck's namesake, the Penthouse Suites 6147 and 6148. Each has 1,432 sq. ft. of elegantly appointed interior space, and a 1,098 sq. ft. balcony which commands the least breezy and incredibly beautiful view of the ocean. While past guest reviews of Penthouse Suite 6147 positively describe the beautiful interior, noise was a problem. Light sleepers seeking luxury accommodations may be more satisfied in other suites available on the Celebrity Millennium.

Deck 7 -- Vista Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

The Vista Deck of the Celebrity Millennium has the advantage of cabins above and beneath which provide a buffer from noises that can be generated from public venues.

  • Forward on Deck 7 of the Millennium, ocean view cabins 7002 and 7003 are oddly shaped and a bit more spacious than standard.
  • Forward, inside cabin 7032 is larger than average and is wheelchair accessible.
  • Outside staterooms 7049 and 7080 have oddly shaped balconies which are slightly larger on the Millennium's Deck 7.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 7171-7177 port side and 7174-7180 starboard also have larger than standard balconies.
  • Midship on Deck 7 of the Millennium, Celebrity Suites 7138 and 7140 have 467 sq. ft. of living space, floor to ceiling windows,nd 85 sq. ft. verandahs overlooking the ocean!
  • Because Deck 7 of the Millennium is quieter than other decks,we do recommend all interior cabins on this deck except 7210 because it is somewhat smaller than usual.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 7137, 7139, 7141, and 7143 are larger than usual and are wheelchair accessible. Of these, 7139 and 7141 are right by the elevators and will likely have a noise concern.
  • Aft on Deck 7 of the Millennium, Family Staterooms 7199, 7201, 7204, and 7202 boast up to 271sq. ft. of interior space and have 242 sq. ft. verandas which provide a picturesque, less breezy ocean view! Family cabins are in in short-supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so, it is best to book early to get a Family cabin.
  • Of the Concierge Class Staterooms with Verandas on Deck 7 of the Millennium, we highly recommend 7203, 7212, 7208, and 7206. (Of these, 7212 is wheelchair accessible.) These are all tucked between the Family Staterooms and will have that great aft view of the ocean!

Deck 8 -- Panorama Deck

On the Celebrity Millennium, Panorama Deck features accommodations most similar in location and quality to Deck 7. Again, this will be a quieter deck because cabins above and beneath create a buffer from public areas. However, when reserving an ocean view cabin on this deck, we suggest that you plan thoughtfully because several of these staterooms have partially obstructed views.

  • Concierge Class Staterooms 8047, 8048, 8049, 8050, 8051, 8052, 8053, and 8054 all have obstructed views on the Millennium's Deck 8. If Concierge Class is your preference, we suggest that you look at cabins 8055-8115 port side, and 8056-8100 starboard because all of these are the same class of Concierge accommodations with a clear ocean view.
  • Concierge Class Staterooms 8102 and 8108 are right next to the Celebrity Suites, but both have smaller, semi-private verandas.
  • The Panorama Deck of the Celebrity Millennium is another great place to reserve an inside cabin because it is one of the quieter decks for staterooms.
  • Sky Suites 8121, 8125, and 8127 are all wheelchair accessible. However, 8121 and 8125 are next to the elevators and could have noise issues. If a wheelchair accessible Sky Suite is your preference, 8127 is your best choice on Deck 8 of the Millennium.
  • Aft on Deck 8 of the Millennium, Family Ocean View Veranda Staterooms 8181, 8183, 8168, and 8166 are very spacious and have that great (less windy) view of the ocean. As mentioned, family cabins are in in short-supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so it is best to book early to get a family cabin.
  • Concierge Class Staterooms 8185, 8176, 8172, and 8170 are situated between the Family Staterooms and have a great aft view of the ocean. Of these, 8176 is wheelchair accessible.

Deck 9 -- Sky Deck

Because Deck 9 cabins on the Celebrity Millennium are underneath Lido, there could be some noise concerns especially around the pool area. However, Sky Deck also features some very comfortable accommodations including Family Staterooms which well situated aft on the deck!

  • On Deck 9 of the Millennium, cabins most likely to be affected by Lido pool noise are exterior cabins 9043-9117 port side and 9038-9094 starboard, as well as inside cabins 9055-9119. Staff clean the Lido pool areas after hours, so you could hear scraping sounds as deck chairs are moved for sweeping.
  • Because the deck above juts beyond the balcony depth of cabin 9094, according to past guests' reviews, the view from the balcony is not free of obstructions.
  • Because of their proximity under Lido, we do not recommend most of the inside cabins on the Millennium Sky Deck. However, interior cabins 9003-9025 and 9002-9018 are not in this area and probably good choices.
  • Ocean View Stateroom 9000 and 9001, Ocean View Staterooms with Verandas 9005-9041, and Ocean View Staterooms 9004-9036 are likely quieter than choices more aft on Deck 9 of the Celebrity Millennium.
  • Sky Suites 9117, 9121, are 9123 wheelchair accessible. If this is your preference, we suggest Suite 9123, because the other two are right next to the elevators and could be noisy.
  • Concierge Class Staterooms 9044, 9045, 9046, and 9047 all have partially obstructed views. We suggest you look exterior cabins at 9043, 9049-9105, 9038-9042, and 9048-9094 on the Millennium's Deck 9. All of these are the same class of Concierge staterooms, and they all have clear ocean views.
  • Aft, Family Ocean View Veranda Staterooms 9197, 9199, 9158, and 9156 are very spacious and have that great (less windy) view of the ocean. As mentioned, family cabins are in in short-supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so, it is best to book early to get a Family cabin.
  • The Best Concierge Class Staterooms (9201, 9164, 9162, and 9160) are directly aft and between the family staterooms on Deck 9 of the Millennium. Of these, stateroom 9164 is wheelchair accessible.
