Amalotus a Plus

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Asia
Embarkation: Other

I had to book on Amalotus at the last minute, due to Pandaw cancelling the cruise I was booked on. After reading the reviews posted on Cruise Critic, I boarded the ship with very poor expectations. I was however very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the cruise immensely.
The ship was wel maintained,, clean, with attractive furnishings and above all, excellent crew and good food.
I found it very difficult to understand some of the comments in other reviews. The standard of English spoken by the crew was very good as was their understanding of the pax English . Nothing was ever too much trouble for them and the assistance rendered on shore excursions was excellent.
The cruise manager and the hotel manager were very much on the ball and did an excellent job.
The food choice was always wide and varied and of excellent quality. The "Action Station" where Asian food was cooked as you watched was a great hit with the Pax. The display, as you entered the restaurant, of the More main course dishes for that meal made choosing much easier and is a great innovation.
The shore excursions were very well organised and of great interest and the guides well experienced and well informed. The Cambodian guides, in particular, were excellent.
Most pax on my cruise were AMA pax. I would have some reservations about cruising on this ship when there are large groups of APT pax as the standards on board are set by APT.
Overall the Amalotus is to be highly recommended. Less
