Singapore, and Departure

First day in Singapore at our 14 Night Gems of Southeast Asia Cruise with Celebrity Millennium.
We decided to go to the Garden by the bay. We only had a few hours; everyone had to be back on board by 12pm. The Marina bay cruise centre is not close to anything.

The gardens and lake area are free to wander around but if you chose to go in the domes (flower dome and cloud forest) or on the sky walk there is a fee 
Marina Bay Sands features three 55-story hotel towers which were topped out in July 2009. The three towers are connected by a 1 hectare sky terrace on the roof, named Sands SkyPark
From the Sands SkyPark Observation Deck there is a beautiful view to the city, Singapore flyer and the cruise terminal.

Visa to Indonesis (visits to Lombok, Komodo island and Bali)
Visa was organised by Celebrity. At check in guests were given a card for the Indonesian visa, these needed to be filled in and handed in with your passport prior to the ship departing Singapore. We were informed to go to Cosmos lounge on deck 11. At the Cosmos lounge our sea passes were scanned, visa card and passport was checked and a receipt for passport was given to us. The visa cost US$25 and was charged to room account. A visa was required for all passengers on board (except for Asian national and certain South American citizens). The visa was mandatory and was needed to be completed whether you intended to go ashore or not.
