Relaxing on the Seas
The Ice Show was fantastic but all the other show were entertaining as well. We just loved Matt Yee the Chinese entertainer from Hawaii kept the late nights jumping.
Our Stateroom was great and we enjoyed having a balcony especially when were sailing into port. We arrived into Hong Kong to be greeted by a Band, Dragon and TV Cameras. We were the first ship to use the new Cruise Terminal. We received a model of the new More terminal with our Ship berthed there. A nice little keepsake.
The staff in the Dining room were fantastic as was our Stateroom Attendant.
They were making changes to the ship during the voyage and these certainly had a negative impact on our experience. The $100 compensation was an insult.
The staff at the Service Desk were not up to the job and certainly could not manage the passengers' problems. In many ways this was a training voyage for the new Chinese Staff. The ship will be basically a floating Casino operating out of China for the next few months.
We should have been advised that you can be granted a Visa for Vietnam on arrival this would have saved us great deal of time and expense.
Our arrival in Shanghai was so smooth and the Chinese officials were great from our cabin to our car.- 45 minutes. Wow!!
Yes, there were a few problems but we had the best time on the cruise and are planning our next. Probably with Royal Caribbean. Less

We had a disability cabin, it was very well thought out and we enjoyed our stay very much. Our cabin attendant Dexter was great and very welcoming. We could not have asked for more.
