This is the first-footer, the first to arrive during the Lunar New Year, to Chan May Port from Malta carrying 2,100 passengers and 1,000 crewmembers.

Passengers visited popular destinations in Hue and Da Nang City upon arrival at the port.  These destinations included Hue Ancient Capital, Hoi An Ancient Town and My Son Relic Site.

The ship left Chan May Port at 6 p.m. on the same day for Ha Long Port in Quang Ninh Province.

Chan May Port is expected to receive 34 cruise ships this year with approximately 40,000 visitors. The Celebrity Millennium will visit eight times.
