We chose this itinerary because of the ports. We loved every port and all were unique. It was especially fun to be there while each country was celebrating the Chinese and Lunar New Year. The towns were beautifully decorated and festive. It was different embarking and then having an extra day in town to explore. Embarkation was smooth and quick, very organized. The ship Millennium is in dire need of updating. We saw so many maintenance issues. The excuses were the ship will be going out for renovation in the next 2 years. They need to make it sooner. There were screws missing from the handles in the public bathrooms, so there was concern the handle might come off and your stuck! Bolts were missing from the metal frame around the door in bathrooms. Our cabin was great except the light and rim that was hanging down and we could see the wiring. I reported and was told, "there aren't any extra parts available." Our interactive menu on the TV didn't work until 3 days prior to leaving. We reported numerous times and had 3 different remotes. The MDR was great and we had 2 exceptional waiters - Andi and Candida. They were awesome, as well as the Sommelier Tes. She was constantly there for us and a delight. The 2 best martini bartenders - Maria and Gusti were awesome as well. The food in the MDR was great with lots of variety. Everyone at our table was happy with their meals, except one night, but it was a fluke. Our cabin steward - Gabriel was wonderful. Attentive, polite and always available with whatever we needed. The casino only had the bartender and could have used more staff to walk around and take drink orders from players at the table and slots. More staff is needed in the Ocean View too. They all work so hard and Celebrity needs to hire more, not give them more duties. The entertainment was really good with lots of variety, as well as Paul and Valentina were awesome! We booked our own tours and had wonderful guides and just immersed ourselves in to each town. Fabulous, fabulous food and keeping the groups small make it so much nicer to see sights and have time to explore. Our favorite cities were Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore. We really like Hanoi as well, but didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked due to the traffic and travel time. Super long day, but worth it to go into Hanoi. We did Hong Kong and Singapore on our own using either the MTR and occasional taxi. Easy to get around and MTR is cheap, quick and super clean in both cities.

Loved the Itinerary - Not happy with ship
