Didn't rush to the port in Singapore as it said as i was on deck seven i couldn't book in till 1.30 so we arrived around that time and found a queue a mile long another ship was loading at the same time and embarkation was a joke we didn't get on ship till around 4 went from queue to queue sent upstairs ??? don't know why we where boarding downstairs given a color after queuing the we where meant to sit till the color was called sat for ages and they never called any colors so just joined queue and got through immigration. Got on ship after hours of queuing started to unpack first time our suitcases have got to the cabin before us and we cruise a lot and it was time for the lifeboat drill. sail away party was cancelled due to the delay in boarding everyone. First impressions lovely clean ship staff friendly. Meals where strange eg curry for breakfast if you wanted. loads asian Indian food at every meal time they tended to cater to this market not so much for the English market same with the entertainment all seemed to be geared towards the Asian market wouldn't mind but the largest amount of people on the ship where Australian followed by the British ???. I had the soft drinks and coffee package and the service was brilliant after having the same package last year on the Norwegian spirit where we where ignored by the staff when they had seen you had prepaid well done royal Caribbean never had a problem and the waiters where excellent and they went the extra mile. we booked 1 trip via guest services but did the majority on our own. The ice show was excellent well worth seeing
