    Yes! The credits are yours and can be used through Online Vacation Center to book your cabin. Simply have the certificate number(s) available when you book and Online Vacation Center will handle the rest!

  • Are there solo occupancy cabins?

    Celebrity Millennium does not have designated solo occupancy cabins onboard, and generally does not have reduced single supplements if you wish to travel solo. Since cruise fares are marketed as per person, double occupancy, a solo traveler will pay for the entire cabin minus the taxes for the second passenger.

    We suggest if you’re interested in attending solo, that you post your interest in the various social media groups focusing on bourbon and whiskey and see if you can find someone with whom to share your cabin.

  • Is a passport required for this cruise?
    Since this is considered a “closed loop” itinerary which leaves and returns to the same port, US citizens may board with just a birth certificate and driver’s license.  Real ID compliant license not necessary at the time of sailing, nor is a passport.
    It is always advisable to sail with a passport, should something happen and you have to disembark in the Bahamas and fly back to the US.
  • Why is there a separate Expo Fee?

    We know not everyone is a whiskey enthusiast, and we wanted to make it less expensive for those not participating in the expo events. So if your traveling companion/partner/spouse/family doesn’t want to take part in the seminars or tastings, they aren’t charged the fee.

  • How much is the Expo Fee and what does it cover?

    The expo fee is $75 per participant. This covers the administration costs for the logistics surrounding the event, and the costs for the tastings, seminars, etc. At least one person in each cabin must pay the expo fee.

  • If my companion doesn't pay the Expo Fee, what can they attend with me?

    There is a whole ship for them to enjoy while you are in seminars! We want to include them as much as possible, so they may still attend the cocktail parties, whiskey pairing lunch, and Key West Bar Crawl, but they will not be served the featured brands. Onboard the ship, they can be a part of the group dining in the evenings and can use their included beverage package to order the drinks of their choice in any of the venues, but in the case of the Key West Bar Crawl, they will have to purchase their beverages separately.

  • How do I purchase my Expo Tickets

    Within a week after booking, you will be emailed a link to the expo fee payment page.

  • Is the Expo Fee Refundable?

    The Expo Fee is non-refundable* and must be purchased within 30 days of cabin deposit.

    *In the event the sailing is cancelled by Celebrity, full refund of the Expo Fee will be given.

  • What is the vaccine policy for this cruise?

    At the current time, Celebrity is following the CDC guideline requiring all passengers 12 and over be fully vaccinated at the time of the cruise.* If you choose not to be vaccinated, or don’t wish to show your vaccine record, you will be allowed to cruise, but you will have certain limitations on your activities and venues onboard the ship.
