Sail Date: Jan 2008

I have recently returned from the above cruise. I would concur with most of what the previous reviewer- gribouille- says. Like many others, we stayed in Hongkong before embarking the ship. We stayed at the Renaissance hotel in Kowloon and it was an excellent base.

It was obvious that the staff at embarkation in the Marco Polo hotel were somewhat inexperienced and the queues were a bit shambolic. Leaving your luggage on a busy sidewalk was not reassuring! Walking through a shopping mall to meet the ship was a new experience and if you had walking difficulties, the distance was quite far.

Our cabin was an inside and fine. The ship itself is generally ok, but we did notice some armchairs in the Champagne lounge which were very worn. On the promenade deck some of the flooring looked well past its sell- by -date. Shows we found were excellent which was a real bonus. After the first few days, the weather warmed up and it was very pleasant sitting outside when not on excursions.
