The cabin was roomy and no problems. The cabin steward Lu was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for her. The excursion were quite pricey and a lot of wasted time that could have been utilised better. Sanya Island off China was a ... Read more

It seems like some people may be confusing Nov cruise with Oct cruise. Our cruise was from 11/6-11/21--no collision or atrocious weather. The weather was quite nice.  Contrary to some negative reviews, we loved the Southeast Asian ... Read more

The Ship: Romantica is quite old and dated. It is clean enough on first glance, but quite tired looking. No effort at all has been made to beautify it anywhere. There are no green potplants on the decks outside the lifts. There are no ... Read more
