Disappointed in Celebrity
To start the cruise off on a low note, we were promised a bottle of wine from the Celebrity travel agent that we booked the cruise through. It was not there upon arrival, so after a few hours we went down to the desk and asked about it. They said that they didn't know anything about the wine and would More check it out, but that our daughter had purchased a premium drink package that should have been in the cabin when we got there. The surprise was ruined but they said they would deliver it right away. This went on for two days and it was obvious that we were not going to get it so we said to cancel it. They said OK and never offered an apology or explanation. We did get the wine, on day 5 of the cruise.
In talking to other people who were first time Celebrity cruisers and were complaining about the state of the ship I did stick up for Celebrity saying not to judge them by the Millennium.
In Hong Kong we docked at the NEW pier, which was in the middle of nowhere, with a band, dancers, speeches and the media, but no way of getting anywhere except by shuttle to the Kowloon Station Mall. This took from 20 to 40 minutes. Once there you could get transportation. But you would have to come back to there and then take the shuttle back to the ship.
All said and done, if this was my first Celebrity cruise, it would have been my last. The Millennium is in bad need of a refit and update. This is the first season for the Asian itinerary for Celebrity, I think that they should have sent a better ship. Less
Cabin review: 1A7177
7177 one of the biggest balconies on the ship including the suites. One of the biggest showers on any cruise line. Near the elevators and stairs. Every now and then you could hear the bells from the elevators. Covenant room for the buffet.
