Cruises to Asia

On the Pacific Ocean, coastal Asia inspires a spectrum of adjectives: ancient, futuristic, sacred, industrial, peaceful, riotous, and breathtaking. A trip through East Asia usually includes port stops in the busy urban centers of China, Japan, and South Korea. Southeast Asia cruises, traditionally sailing between Singapore and Hong Kong, provide opportunities for ecotourism and beach time in Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

Our family sailed on Jul 10 - 18, 2015. It took us more than 4 hours for check in and got on board. The scheduled departure time was 6 p.m., but we were still in waiting lounge till 7:30 p.m., without any food or even water?! And the staff cannot ... Read more

This was our second time on the Diamond Princess, albeit much shorter. This time were were in a full suite and it was very spacious, although the shower cubicle was on the small side. The embarkation was quick and efficient and our bags arrived ... Read more
This is going to be short and to the point. This is an old ship, so don't expect all the bells and whistles you find on the new mega ships. The ship shows its age in the furnishings, carpets, etc. The entertainment seemed pretty good. The food ... Read more

Quantum really is a fantastic ship. The Chinese are VERY lucky to get this ship….I am not sure they appreciate everything it has to offer (Such as the bars, FANTASTIC Solarium and pools weren’t really used by them). We spoke to a ... Read more

When we booked this cruise 9 months before departure, we were (party of 7) excited. Over the next 9 months, i read all the reviews about the Quantum. They varied greatly, which was concerning. We spent 10 days and 9 nights on board and the ... Read more
