Treasure of Asia -Dawn princess -May 2103 -Singapore to Perth
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Cruise ship was pretty good -food, entertainment, services -have not however been on a ship yet that was not .
Best part of trip was fellow travellers --very friendly ( most over 65) --and number of days at sea --relax out and enjoy ship's facilities.
Be careful in selecting ships excursions --both Ho chi minh city and Bangkok are 2.5hours drive away--and leaves little time to see when there --very tiring for elderly. We thought we would see some countryside from port to saigon--but just continuous unnnatractive road shops.
Not really too much to see in saigon- wanted to visit reunification palace -but only saw it through railings .To my suprise lacquir factory and water puppet show very good.
Did not attempt same 2.5hr trip to banglok -went to cultural show/elephant show --which was good except dreaded captured shopping to expensive jewellry shop at end--do not understand why cruise ships permit this
Koi More Samui and Cambodia both good --but important to pick excursions which focus more on culture and living style of locals .
Lombok --not much cop --so all in all --stop offs not best , need carefull selection --and certainly could be better organised to reflect "Treasures of Asia" Less
