    Live(ish) Millie HK to Singapore

    The Ocean View Cafe is lovely bright and spacious. Two distinct halves with different seating and food offerings. One side has bucket seats mainly two tone blue, the other side slatted seats with green prevelant. Pizza was as good as ever.

    The Rendevous Bar looks great on a walk through. Much lighter than what I remember from the S Class. Looks like the lifts have been refurbed too

    Martini Bar as wonderful as ever. God I love a London Sapphire Club 😂 Doesn’t seem to have been refurbished probably didn’t need it. Think I prefer this setup to the S Class with the blue lighting, nets and snow pics

    Day 1 We are on board the Millie! Yippee yay yay 😊 Long queues to get through check in and then onto bit as they were taking photos at that stage. Efficiently handled though considering number of people. Very first thoughts love it. Really like the blue hull. Went straight to Cafe Bacio which looks very similar to the S Class ones not sure it’s been renovated but lols good Cellar masters looks nicer as it’s lighter and more spacious. More to come tell me when you are bored!

    Day -1 a full on sightseeing day and I know most of you are mainly interested in the ship so I’ll keep it brief. Tours of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, 4 x Star Ferry crossings, a turn around the HK Wheel, trip to the Night Market, dinner cruise to see the Harbour lights where we met a nice couple from Vancouver also sailing on Millie tomorrow. Hoping Millie’s singers are better than the Harbour cruise talk about Murder on the dance floor you’d have need CSI Vegas, NY and Miami 😂

    Fingers crossed a bit concerned not there for final try on but they have been very professional so far

    Day -2 Arrived in Hong Kong after the bumpiest 12 hour flight, or actually any flight I’ve ever taken. This made any sleep virtually impossible so most people getting off the plane looked as shattered as we felt. Everythng else went smoothly with a driver waiting and a smooth ride to The Langham. The Langham have been superb our bags were whisked away and we were welcomed 4 times before we reached the doors! We had tea in the beautiful foyer coffee shop before quick recce of the room which we were very happy with including the Valentines gift of a bottle of wine. We wandered out as we had an appointment at the world famous Sams Tailors on Nathan Road. Again the fault if Uncle Gerard who has used Sams on his visits. A quick but thorough measurement was made but unfortunately staff holidays for the Chinese New Year meant the 24 hour suit was not available. They will however post it once made after a second fitting tomorrow. Hong Kong was busy colourful and vibrant but we were the walking dead by now so it’s off for some food then bed before a full days sightseeing tomorrow.

    We booked a Balcony 2B on 8th Floor
  11. Day -3 At Heathrow in lounge making our way to Hong Kong for a couple of hotel days before boarding the refurbished Millie and so looking forward to it. Our first time on M class having sailed Eclipse and Silhoutte previously so won’t be able to identify changes but can’t wait to try her out. First time in that part part of the world but long been in the dreams. The reason for going is a fascination since the age of 9 (50yrs ago!!!) with the jewellery box that Sharon was given for her birthday from uncle Gerard- he brought it back from his trip to Hong Kong (I think it was his first trip there as he was 21) - it’s a little battered but has been with her throughout all her nurses homes and still sits by our bed today - the ballerina is missing but it still plays every time it is opened so here we come today finally on our way to see it for ourselves!

    Meet and Mingle - am I missing something?

    In the UK we have a tv programme called the Cruise that focusses on Princess Cruises normally this season covering a trip from Singapore to Sydney. They cover behind scenes as well as passenger experience. This week the show really bugged up Cruise Critic as did various officers. They also asked a CC member to review their breakfast options and acted on her suggestions
