Highlights

  • Bangkok, Thailand

    A melting pot of futuristic and traditional architecture, Bangkok fearlessly places climate-controlled megamalls and neon-lit streets next to 200-year-old village homes and gold-spired Buddhist temples. It’s a contradictory amalgamation of the capital’s past, present and future, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Few cities offer such a satisfying sense of exploration, as you stumble across hidden markets and chat to the fun locals. 

  • Beijing, China

    A city that pays perfect homage to its grand history, with its Forbidden City palace, Great Wall and sublime temples, Beijing is the perfect place to bask in Chinese culture. Between each piece of architectural and imperial mastery, you will find yourself amidst an endless sea of markets, each filled with the trinkets, food and people of this great capital.

  • Hanoi

    The capital of Vietnam is a delight to explore, its Old Quarter, 600 temples and colonial architecture providing the perfect nod to the city’s rich history. Explore rare culinary flavours across the diverse palate of restaurants, the streets between them brimming with scooters and lively street excitements.

  • Ho Chi Minh City

    Once dearly called Diamond of the Far-east with the luxury level overriding that of Hong Kong or Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City is now the most populated city in Vietnam. Modern office skyscrapers, amidst Chinese style pagodas and food stalls along the street, create a dynamic urban area in very special sense. It is not oddly tidy like in Singapore, nor is urban slumps omnipresent like in India. Ho Chi Minh City’s architecture and lifestyle is the reconciliation between American and Chinese influence, with many dots of modernity yet without losing Vietnamese traits and as much historical as it is modern.

  • Hong Kong, China

    Home to one of the world’s most iconic harbours and consisting of over 70% mountains and country parks, Hong Kong is a visual masterpiece. Immerse yourself in its culture and unique spirit as you travel from skyscrapers to holy Sikh temples, browsing endless markets along the way. Worshipers of the God of Cookery, Hong Kong’s culinary reputation is that of legend; enjoy diverse meals, from new cutting edge sensations to classics such as wonton noodles.

  • Hue/Danang, Chan May

    The Nguyen Dynasty founded this former capital in the 17th century on the banks of the Perfume River. Today, it is a massive open-air museum of temples, pagodas and palaces. Where Hue still proudly demonstrates the beauties of Imperialistic architecture, Danang offers a more modern twist on the Vietnamese city formula, with spectacular bridges and paradise resorts along its gorgeous beachline.

Your Ship

Celebrity Millennium

Celebrity Millennium

A favorite of many vacationers, Celebrity Millennium will continue to cruise to Alaska, the Caribbean and the Panama Canal throughout 2011. Then, in April and May of 2012, she'll undergo a revitalization and emerge much more luxurious. By the time she sails to Asia, she'll be renewed with spa-inspired AquaClass® staterooms, the AquaClass signature restaurant, Blu, and the addition of verandas to her chic Celebrity Suites. We can’t think of a better way to experience the exotic beauty of Asia and the South Pacific.
