We did not ask anything out of the ordinary from our butler. He was so kind, and did go out of the way in a couple of occasions, to make certain that I was comfortable, finding special items that he felt would be of help to me.
He was on call 24 hours a day, and was there morning, noon and night, making certain our room was in perfect condition. Breakfast was always served on time, along with always trying to please us in any way. He would have unpacked for us, along with some other extras, but I did not feel the need for that.
The butler is the person who served us our hors doeurves nightly and would have helped with bookings had we asked.
The cruises state their suggestion for the butler, but we added considerably due to the high quality service we received. He certainly made our cruise much more pleasant from the very beginning, and hope to see him again while traveling with Millennium in November.

We are doing the Venice to Barcelona in June on Millie. We were on the Mille once before in the Caribbean. We had a CC on on deck 9. We did not have a problem with noise but there is a big overhang over the decks so this cruise we went one deck lower in a CC. We have had a sky suite on Century with butler. They will do whatever you need in reason. We did not require anything special but it was nice to be pampered.
On this trip coming up we did not use Celebrity excursions. We booked private drivers for Rome,Naples, Florence, and Athens. We wanted to be able to set our own itinerary.

Cruiser13,
What companies did you use for private drivers? We are a group of 8 and I think a van would be cheaper that 8 Excursion fares. What do you think?

Mark,
In Rome, Naples and Florence we are using AP Tours. In Athens we are using Athens taxi.I think it may be cheaper but the part I enjoy is being able to set our own itinerary.

We're booked on the Milennium in Sept. leaving on the Venice to Barcelona route - which trips can you recommend to help us. Also do you know how easily we can reach St Marks Square from the ship and how to access the island of Murano?

I'm sure I have loads of other questions you can help me with but I don't want to overload you.

Cheers
