Booked this cruise , our first , because of the destinations. On boarding yes you can see it is an older ship and needs it’s upgrade due September/ October but in no way is it a rust bucket. Let’s be realistic the price paid reflects the condition. Pay top $ and you will get all the razzmatazz some people seem to expect. Our Junior suite reminded me of my parents caravan from the 70s , every door you opened provided space for storage. The suite 1634 was spacious and comfortable. We were looked after very well by Suma our cabin attendant. Windjammer - not for me but perfectly adequate. We had a stay onboard day at one port and as the ship was nearly empty we enjoyed a nice relaxed lunch. The coffee shop - if late for breakfast as we often woke late( the only time in years I have slept 8 hrs solid) we came here . It was good. As was lunch, snacks and coffees any time you wanted. Freshly prepared and tasty. Dining room where we sometimes had “posh breakfast” best omelet ever. Nice surroundings , always serviced with a smile and good grace. Diner , we chose my time dining but it works better if you book a time , for us 8.15pm , same table for two every night waited on by Michael who is excellent and always added that personal touch by remembering our names from day one onwards. Food was good, sometimes better than others but beautifully presented . Trips - because of the destinations sometimes the travel was quite long to get to the designated city/ excursion point. Don’t complain do your research first. You can’t stick a port in the middle of land. When there embrace the culture and sights. WiFi- iffy at times but there again be realistic , you can’t just magic up WiFi in remote areas. Vietnam being the worst but would that not be expected as at times more remote. Crew- fantastic. Always smiling , extremely curtious and good at their jobs. Entertainment - great shows. Ice skating was excellent. Hard enough to skate on a still rink never mind one that is rocking on sea. Mr and Mrs a total hoot. Well done to the 3 couples who took part , great entertainment. Fellow Travellers- we met up with the most lovely people. By the end of the nine days we had made good friendships. However not everyone is the same and the moaners of the world will always moan. Rude people who barge in and basically think they come first will always be rude. Look around at some of the conditions in the countries you have visited and appreciate what you have. 3500 passengers will provide all sorts. To sum up - we loved our cruise. Our first but not our last. Looked after and entertained by a great crew who all work very very hard. I hope this has given a more rounded review than some after all it is not RC fault if passengers are smelly etc as in other reviews. Cheaper cruise because older ship but it gave us 9 days of a smashing holiday. Read Less

Don't believe the bad reviews. U read them and was very concerned. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. Boat was lovely - yes a little old but very clean and we'll maintained. Lifeguards on all pools. Food was great in the main dining room and in the Windjammer buffet restaurant. Staff were great - our room attendant was fantastic and they are a great source of info for first time cruisers. Things that weren't as great - communication for boarding and final checking off the boat. We were a little confused. On boarding go to the Windjammer, get yourself lunch room check in is 1.30ish. Seating is hard to get at the Windjammer but queues weren't as bad as I had read. Don't take power boards - they hold your suitcase and it adds extra drama. Lifts waiting time is massive so if you don't have a disability take the stairs or you'll waste lots of time. The drinks package thing was interesting. We took the Sosa package which did work out cost effective cause we got great coffees at the promenade cafe and lots of soft drinks by the pool. It also meant a very small bill at the end. Definitely a great cruise! Read Less

I and my family were on a vacation to Penang and Phuket. It was afternoon when we embarked. The exterior of the ship was patchy, rusty and old. Barnacles lined the bottom. When we entered the ship, we were immediately directed to WINDJAMMER after checking in. As we had priority boarding, it was very empty then so we got our food and table within 10 minutes. The carpeted floor was littered with dirt and scraps of food from the previous voyage. The food was horrible and the Char Siew(Cantonese toasted meat) was unprofessionally bathed in ketchup, contrary to the food award certificates that were proudly hung in dusty photo frames outside the buffet style restaurant. When we finished our food, windjammer was already full to the brim and there were people pushing and shoving. People were reserving tables with tissue paper packets and loud and disgusting music was being blasted through the PA system. Meanwhile, my father was having a splitting headache and my mother was complaining. We quickly exited Windjammer to go to our staterooms. However, our rooms were not ready till 1.30 p.m. so we had to wait 45 minutes. We then decided to walk around the ship. The pool was small like the regular ones you have in a backyard and full of people and the place was rusty and old, especially signboards. The elevators smelt like rotten eggs and the buttons were worn and polished by years of use. The library was appalling. There were little books, and the remaining books were arranged in a disorderly manner. The computers had unauthentic copies of Windows on them and had no ethernet or wireless connection, hence rendering them unusable. Games were all in a mess and had lost parts. Our rooms were soon ready. Doors to the corridors were opened. We went to our rooms, the junior suites which were very far. Entering it with our Sea pass, the rustic cabin of 1998 greeted me. The ceiling panels were falling out and dents were covered with stickers. Carpet was dirty as well. The toilet had a cheap and lousy shower head. The soap they provided was watery and did little to cleanse my body. There was no toothbrush provided and drainage pipes for the sink were corroded, exposed and leaks patched with rubber seals. The hair dryer was very unsafe as it spewed out the smell of burnt plastic every time I turned it on. The balcony had rust on the ceiling due to leaks. Lack of Universal Serial Bus ports for charging electronic devices and instead we were give two American ports. We did not bring travel adapters and since our charging adapters were UK ones, we were forced to buy overpriced travel adapters found in the store in deck 5. Speaking of the promenade deck, the indoor cabins without sea view had windows along there. The loud and annoying singing and dancing at night would disturb the residents from sleeping, hence the lights to their rooms on and their bloodshot eyes staring out from the glass windows. Crowds of people were dancing to the beat of the music and the promenade cafe full to the brim. The bar and lounge were empty as people who could not stand the music(like my parents) were repelled from the promenade. The lobbies of 8 lifts on each side of the promenade are full 24/7 either because people are going back to the rooms as they cannot find a table to dine or because they are escaping from the horrible 80s music blasted in the promenade. As we squeezed into the lift, a baby started crying and a boy watched cartoons on his phone. The smell of cheap perfume and perspiration fills the air as I struggle to breathe. The lift stops at almost every floor, once in a while someone stepping on my foot or someone wanting to get in but unable to. After an eternity the lift reaches the deck our staterooms are on. That is all I have to complain about. Now, about the pros. Despite the poor leadership in the team, on the bright side, the captain knows how to pilot the cruise properly, which is something we must be thankful for. The staff, especially the room keepers are polite, greeting us every time we see each other. Although we didn’t get to swim, the Phuket shore excursion and ice odyssey skating show were indeed entertaining. Despite internet connection speeds being slow, there was still internet. The beds were comfy and I did not suffer from sleepless nights. The rustic ship, despite its worn and torn look, is nostalgic and definitely brings back memories from the 90’s. Room service was good and fast. Read Less
