Celebrity Millennium arrived at Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore (MBCCS) this morning in her first trip to Asia. Operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited, the world-class ship will home-port at MBCCS, using the purpose-built terminal as a springboard to its other Asian destinations in the coming year.

The 91,000-tonne luxurious cruise ship which arrived from Benoa, Bali, Indonesia, will stay in Singapore for two nights before departing on 10 December to Bangkok (Laemchabang), Thailand. The ship will then home-port in Singapore more times in the coming year, with trips to Bali, Lombok, Bangkok, Phuket and Ko Samui scheduled. 

Melvin Vu, Chief Executive Officer of SATS-Creuers Cruise Services (SCCS) says, “Celebrity Cruises is world-renowned for its modern luxury experience offered on board her mega-vessels. We are pleased to have been selected as their homeport in Asia, and are confident that our unique blend of service and efficiency will provide passengers with a seamless transition from sea, land and air. This certainly cements Singapore’s status as a premier cruise hub, and ultimately elevates the cruise industry in Asia.”

With luxurious accommodations and intuitive service for its 2,138 passengers, Celebrity Millennium is top of the rankings among large cruise ships. Passengers can enjoy a myriad of Solstice® Class features such as the Celebrity iLoungeSM, an ice-topped Martini Bar, Café al Bacio & Gelateria, a Cellar Masters Wine Bar, and the uniquely unordinarySM Qsine® specialty restaurant.

Celebrity Millennium is the second cruise ship from Celebrity Cruises to dock at MBCCS. Celebrity Solstice arrived at MBCCS on 23 November 2012, when a new DriveCruise service was introduced, giving cruise passengers special parking rates and providing convenience to cruise passengers locally.
