Hong Kong to Singapore - Dec. 23/12

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Asia
Embarkation: Hong Kong
We are experienced cruisers. Did this exotic itinerary with friends who we hook up with every two years.

Embarkation good- no issues. Rooms were ready within an hour which is quicker than what we are accustomed to. Room Steward was ok but not overly attentive. Never called us by name.

Had 2 day in most ports which was good considering the itinerary. Most excursions are a full day which means early mornings and most had a drive of around 1.5- 2.5 hours to get to each way which became tiresome. However if you wanted to see the cities you had no choice. Did not do Hanoi which I heard from some who did the trip that it took them 8 hours of traveling to get there and back. Glad we didn't do that one. All the cities are crowded and hot. Most had populations of 5-10 million. The hawkers are pretty aggressive in some areas and hang around the tourist visitation sites.

Didn't take in any of the entertainment except for one night. The on site dancers and singers are More very good and the one show we did take in was top notch. The food was very good, well presented and creative. We had anytime dining but found a good table with excellent wait staff so we ate there most nights. While we couldn't reserve a table they always kept this one for us. Friendly staff throughout the ship especially Dexter ( Mr. Washy Washy) who could make anyone's day. We had no issues and would sail again with Celebrity. Less
