In summary, we very much enjoyed the holiday, and value was overall good, mainly due to independently booking flights and excursions, and wherever possible avoiding Celebrity Cruises hiked prices.

Unfortunately corrupt boarded police found issue with drivers licence and banned us from getting on bus which meant we could not complete our planned tour of this area.

Hong Kong

5 out of 5
Amazing city, easy to get around on cheaply MRT. Plenty to see. Hop on hop off bus very crowded. Would be better purchasing local day bus pass.

Shanghai, China

4 out of 5
Get a clear day and the views from Shangai Tower are amazing. Again easy to use MRT and trip on Maglev to airport in 8mins @ 300km/Hr an experience.
