We chose this cruise as we wanted to get away over the Christmas and New Year period. We had been to Taipei before, and wanted to see the other places on the Itinerary in Taiwan. We have been on Millennium before, but felt that the food on the ship is not as good as previously. The staff and service were excellent. Embarkation and disembarkation were both smooth, similarly getting the tender and getting off the ship at every port went very well. The ship was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had lots of Christmas activities for both adults and children. We are Elite members and the Club host Graham, was the best host we have ever had on any ship in the Celebrity and Royal Caribbean fleet. He was at the Club every night to greet us, gave us lots of information re the ports of call, and was in the lounge to organise our departure from the ship on the last morning. This was a vast contrast to a previous Millennium cruise in March/April 2016, the club hostess was in attendance on the first night, and after that we did not see her until the morning of departure from the ship. Thank you very much Graham for your excellent service. In spite of hearing lots of negatives about transport from the ship, we walked straight out of the baggage area into a taxi without any wait at all. The Captain of the vessel was simply great. He is what I would call a high profile Captain and as well as attending many functions, he was in the port building on disembarkation to personally farewell every passenger. We enjoyed our cruise, met lots of lovely people from all parts of the world and Celebrity did a wonderful job in ensuring everyone had a happy Christmas and New Year. What more could you ask?

Cabin 09 9025
Our cabin attendant did an excellent job in keeping our cabin clean. He was very pleasant, obliging and helpful throughout our cruise for which we thank him very much.
