Celebrity Cruises - Celebrity Millennium
24 Beader Spaces Available

We will be travelling on the internationally award winning Celebrity Cruise line for this trip. Their modern decor and clean lines are relaxing and luxurious. Expand your journey through life with an adventure into the Far East! I've travelled there many years ago and look forward to going back to see the changes and the unchanging history. We will start off in one of worlds greatest shopping cities of the world... Hong Kong! Then travel to Taiwan, Shanghai and multiple stops in Japan. We should arrive during the famous Cherry Blossom Festival time and have some amazing photo and tour opportunities.

You don't have to be a beader to come along, any person who is into hand crafts, knitting, embroidery, hand quilting etc. is more than welcome to come along for the Open Studio option, if you have a bunch of UFO bead projects, bring them along instead of purchasing the Beaders Package. You'll still receive a fun goodie bag and be included in all the group activities. For the companion traveller, it's just $75 to save more than $200 on your cruise price.

Remember, we only work on projects while we're at sea, so when we arrive in the ports we all go and explore! Classes are all open session, you're not trapped all day at a table, once you get started you're more than able to take your project and continue working on it in one of the many beautiful lounges and observation areas! We will bead all around the the ship.


DAY 1: HONG KONG -We get to check in and stay aboard or go ashore to explore Hong Kong as we don't leave until the next day!

Enjoy the second day exploring and shopping in Hong Kong!

DAY 3: AT SEA - BEADING - Dig into the goody bags and get out your projects, time to explore the ship and find the best places to bead! The nice thing about a small group is we are not locked into one space!

Often overshadowed by nearby Tokyo, it continues to be one of Japan’s liveliest, and most international, destinations. Yokohama has a decidedly different feel from many other Japanese cities.

Though this is the end of the cruise, it may not be the end of the adventure! A Post-Cruise excursion will be in the works. Updates will be added to the page, check back once in a while or sign-up to be notified of updates to the event.
