Also following along. We are on the March2nd sailing and are staying in the Langham for a couple of nights at the end. Great to see photos of the hotel and hear you had a good reception there.

 

Hope you love the hotel as much as we do. Already planning next trip back

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 😂

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!

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

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

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.

If quantity is limited, you can have the carpet, I'll order the white chairs. 😉

Thank you for all the great pictures.  Loving the look of the Rendezvous Lounge.

Sunset Bar probably needs renaming Sol Bar or the like there isn’t a lot of shade at all. One picture at end shows it at best when the ship made it dappled.

 

The design of the canopy some like some don’t I’m ambivalent think it may look better when weathered Sharon likes it. 

 

With the Canopy gone there is not a lot of privacy for the Aft cabins in deck 11 and there seems less on the lower decks than I remember.

And so to the room a Veranda Cabin on deck 8. Very happy with the room lots of storage. Changes from refurbishment it’s modern and brighter and feels plush, though we are probably second users so it would. There are recliners on the small verandas. The usb points are great 

 

Cons 

▪️the cabinets in the bathroom have gone replaced by shelving with a low lip 

▪️Safe is much smaller it takes iPad pros but ordinary iPads only at an angle

The Cosmos doesn't look bad IMO, the blue draw you in.

However if we look past the chairs, that is some carpet.  Pre-distressed?  Hopefully just color, and not vulnerable surface wear.

Thank you so much! You have an excellent way of taking a photo that absolutely gives a great visual to a space. If it fits into your schedule, a request for pictures of the gym and, specifically, the area with the machines. And, due to conversation here about the new area of AQ staterooms and what has happened to the men's/women's locker rooms and the public dry sauna area within those facilities.... again, if it fits into your schedule, I am so interested in how this area of the ship was changed.

Eighteen years ago I had two custom tailored made suits made in Bangkok.  They were timeless and I wore them to every important meeting and work event until I retired three ago.  When I gave away all my "work attire" I did not have the heart to let them go. I swear they look as good as they day I bought them.

My business now requires, at the best,  jeans and sweatshirt but who know ??? They are waiting in the wings 🙂.

ENJOY !!!!

 

SAVE one for funerals, weddings and bar mitzfah's.  consider Donating the rest to Career Gear.
