Just disembarked from the cruise - cruise was okay, not as fantastic as I have imagined though. Breakfast at windjammer is horrible - over crowded and food sucks but dinner at main dining is superb - fine dining concept and food is yummy. ... Read more

Let's start with the embarkation in Shanghai: it took 2 hours and with this I rest my case on this subject. Cabins: average, nothing special. Food: the smell in Windjammer was awful and the food is of poor quality. There is plenty of ... Read more

Embarkation was much smoother than our previous cruise leaving from Venice. However, there were long waits in the sun on the gangway which appeared to be due to passengers not completing the correct paperwork. Once on board we headed to ... Read more
