We arrived early and stayed at the Fairmont. We did a Night Safari Tour with Viator, and met other cc's at Raffles Long Bar before we embarked. Singapore is spotless, and the people are the nicest we have met anywhere in the world. It is extremely commercial with malls on almost every block, but it is also filled with different fascinating cultures. We spent some time on the waterfront areas, some in the Arab section, and some in Little India. We used the public subway which was easily navigated and cheap. If I had to do it again, I would stay 3 nights pre/post cruise instead of two. The Fairmont was beautiful and in a great location for touring. This is the only port I'd consider returning to.
