Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2015

We are a group of five with 3 elderly people staying in two cabins. We chose this cruise because it is on special offer, for about US$300 per person all inclusive. The elderly think it is good because they don't have to fly. Also the itinerary means we (my wife and I) only need to take one day off from work.

Embarkation is quite smooth but Ocean Terminal in Hong Kong is crowded. It only took about an hour to complete the whole procedure and get on board. But I really dislike how Star Cruises took our passports, ID cards and even the Taiwan entry visa. I think that's a serious violation of privacy and I am going to file a complaint to the authorities.

Food, I will not spend too long on this. We have been told the western food in the main dining room (Genting Palace) is bad and should stick to the chinese offering. But after we tried both we think the western food is definitely better than the chinese food. In fact I think the chinese food is cooked by a Malaysian Chinese chef, because it does feel like the chinese food I had in Malaysia. You don't want to eat that. Also, I have no idea why Genting Palace does not accept bookings. Everyone has to queue up and then the waitress gives you a number and time to come back. What's the difference between this and taking a booking?

Cabin Review

We have an oceanview cabin on deck 6. It is nice and it is the first time we have a window on our cruise cabin. The cabin is clean but on closer inspection the folded inside part of the bed sheet is very dirty. The toilet and bathroom look alright.
