We have school reunion in Hong Kong so total 110 of us took the 5 days Vietnam cruise. If you have taken other legit cruise ships such as Princess, Celebrity, you will be solely disappointed. This cruise line just catering to Mainland Chinese, who are interested in Gambling and sight seeing. Most of them do not know how a real cruis ship oprates. We were only allowed to go into the eating area once for the 3 meals, or you will get charged extra. But for the foods they serve, no one willl want to go there the 2nd time anyway. For lunch buffet, therre were warning signs about not get burned by the steam, and I amost got burned a few times when trying to get food from the pans which were heated underneath by the steam but leaking around the edges. For dinner, we needed to have 8 people, as they serveed 8 people on each table, and they served 6 Chinese dishes family style meaning everybody digged in with their chopsticks. So you did not want to have dinner with strangers.. The protions were unbelievably small. They had some afternnon snacks, the cookies were worst than the Dollar General store varieties. My friend carried 2 cookies that he did not finish and got stopped by the ship staff that no food could leave the dining area. Had one so so dance and singing show 1 night and the ship staff forced us to stand up, applaud, and applaud, and took up 40 minutes. The show was only 30 minutes. They had music singings right in the middle of casino, with people smoking away. Had 2 levels of Casinos, with VIP rooms where they made most of their money.. Chinese passengers running around in their pajamas. One man sitting next to me during the show, messaging his bard toes. The night before the disembarkment, I asked for the luggage tags. They all gave wrong answers. Finally I got the tags from the Service Desk. They wanted to save the luggage tags also. Took 2 hours to get on the ship for 1500 passengers. And 2 hours again to get off ship. Person in charge of disembarkment admitted his job was to manage a restaurant. And they were not cheap. We paid about US $100/day per person. experience. This cruise line should be rated -1 stars if poosible. Read Less

my two take-aways from this cruise: 1) this cruise line caters to the mainland chinese, and 2) if you spend money on extras, it's great, but the included stuff is lackluster. i would go again, and i'd probably enjoy it more, having more accurate expectations and being more prepared to entertain ourselves. went on this cruise with grandmother in wheelchair, mother in upper 60s, and uncle. we had two balcony rooms, one with wheelchair access. we were happy with both rooms--comfy beds, and overall good size, efficient use of space. everything was clean and in good working order. cabin stewards were easy to reach whenever we needed anything (like towels or soap). public spaces also looked good--new and well-kept. even though there's a good english site, the cruise guests are mostly chinese. the staff seem to be mostly multilingual. there were some who didn't speak english, but an english speaker could be found easily enough. if you book shore excursions, make sure you ask about language. we were on a 5-day cruise to vietnam. we did 2 shore excursions, and they were good, but on one of them the guide only spoke mandarin. the large majority of things are multilingual on the cruise, including booking excursions, so it's reasonable to assume a tour would be multilingual--nope. i was rather annoyed, but luckily my uncle was able to translate major points for us and a few others on our tour who also spoke no mandarin. that aside, getting on a boat in halong bay is totally worthwhile. beautiful views! and it was very cool to be able to buy just-caught seafood from fishermen who come up to your boat in theirs, then have the people on your boat cook it. mother had been on a norwegian cruise, and i had been on a carnival cruise, so we had some expectations. we were rather disappointed by the included food, activities, and entertainment. we were really bored on the ship, and glad it was only a 5-day cruise. on our entire cruise, the only thing scheduled at the zodiac theater was the safety orientation. so we saw what a nice theater they had, just never had any programming to enjoy it. they played movies on the lobby screen, but i'm not going to enjoy a movie with a bunch of people constantly walking by and chatting. there was only one show (a concert by a well-known older chinese singer, popular with chinese guests) and it also was held at the lobby. there was a live band that played at one of the bars every night, and they were ok IF you liked that music. there was a party with fireworks on the last night. that was it for entertainment--no magic acts, or acrobatics, or dancing or anything. the virtual reality stuff might have been fun if it was included, but not worth the price. the dance club wasn't terrible, but there were very few cruisers under 40, so there were few people there the one night i went. the top deck attractions looked fun (i just didn't make use of them because i had to entertain my mom and grandmom). for activities, they had some dance lessons, that were decent. they offered yoga and other exercise classes, but for a fee. food. this is where i was most disappointed. tip: they sell coupons for various restaurants in the shopping area--buy some at the beginning of your trip (obviously not more than you could use). the food in the main dining room is the same as the buffet--there's not much variety and it's of mediocre quality. there was no included food at off hours--the only 24-7 food options cost extra. aside from the food itself, spending money means not having to fight the crowds. as other reviewers mentioned, there were lots of rude, pushy guests, so that's a big plus.

We cruised in a Palace Suite as the All Inclusive offer appealed to us and the cruise fare was not much more than a balcony cabin. The Palace is a private ship within a ship concept, complete with Butler service, drinks included, Palace speciality restaurant, free wifi and a chance to dine once at the other speciality restaurants on board We pretty much tried everything on board and loved the private Palace pool area which has a huge amount of loungers, mini cabanas etc all of which are hardly used so make for a nice peaceful sanctuary. There are 4 spa pools, two hot and two cold also in this area and there is no shortage of service around the pool area with drinks replenished on a regular basis. The Zook beach club is a neat area and they hold lively parties there at night, a bit like being in a top beach side night club. The ship is 2 years old but still has that brand new immaculate feel about as she is very well maintained. Try the water slides, they are a total rush with various speeds and hair raising drops for the adventurous Read Less

Most of the crew members have a bad attitude. Felt like they just wanted to complete their jobs and get out of there. It's 6 days of nightmare but we tried to stay calm and minimize any need to request for a service after several bad experiences on the first day itself. We took the cruise from Hong Kong to Japan. Most stops in Okinawa are very brief and shore excursions were mostly filled with shopping trips at local pharmacies or tourist gift shops! Food at the main dinning were average at best so we resorted to dinning mostly at speciality restaurants. We also tried late breakfast and lunches to avoid the crowd and lack of proper arrangements to help guests get a table. The ship is pretty new and very well designed. It's unfortunate the service didn't made the experience rather poor. For the prices paid, it's not worth it. Read Less
