Great cruise, entertsinment and ports. Our only complaint was...All the staff were pleasant except for the people behind counter at cafe del bacio where they served coffee and pastries or cake on the 5th floor. For some reason they were rude to my husband every single day. He is very easy going.. The serving staff was fine. It was the people behind the counter.

 

i would also suggest going a few days early to Hong Kong before your cruise and staying a few days after your cruise in Singspore.  Signs are all in English.

Koalcash's Tips

Noumea, New Caledonia - Did the hop on bus to Duck Island. Pretty little island with upscale furniture but poor snorkeling because all the coral was broken. We saw better fish as we swam towards the buoys. They wanted $ to sit on the chairs. I got annoyed and left. Took the bus again and stopped at the little aquarium. Fantastic exhibit and good turtle exhibit also.
Suva, Fiji - Another dumpy port but we walked to the little Fiji museum about 1 1/2 miles from the ship and it was really a wonderful little museum. Then being Sunday we walk back along the park and people were getting out of church. Nice to see everyone in their flowered dresses and the men wearing skirts.
Mystery Island, Vanuatu - We walked all the way around the island. When exiting the pier we walked to the right and all the way down the beach we saw some snorkelers. Best snorkeling on the trip. Middle of the island had stands set up. No pressure gentle people with little English. Local language and French spoken.
Isle Of Pines (Ile Des Pins), New Caledonia - Gorgeous island. We went on shore early and hired a van for $20 US to take us on a 2 hour tour with a handful of other people. It turned out to be one of the best tours we have ever taken. Even stopped at a cave with stalactites. Small fee to get in so you need French pacific francs. Then we spent rest of day laying on the beach.
Lautoka, Fiji Islands - Sort of a dumpy town but we hired a van on shore with 8 other people at $25 apiece to take us to a resort and it was a long drive but turned out to be the perfect blue lagoon for swimming and laying on the beach. The way you have imagined Fiji to be.
Sydney, Australia - We went 5 days early and stayed at the Holiday Inn in the Rocks then at Potts Point. Walked across the Harbor Bridge. Took the train to the Blue Mts. one day which I highly recommend - then just take the hop on bus. Went to Manley for a day and went to Bondi.
Chan May (Hue), Vietnam - 6 of us strangers hired a driver for $30 a piece, he had an SUV and we had him show us the sites of Danang like the lady Buddha and China Bewch then take us to Hoi An for the afternoon.
Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam - Hired a driver with another couple for $40 a piece to take us to the Cu Cui tunnels then to Saigon to reunification palace, post office and Thane market. Busy day but I'm glad we did it.
Celebrity Millennium Celebrity Millennium - The back and back sides of the top deck were quieter with more lounge chairs available when the pool areas were packed.
