Back to back cruise to Asia, great port destinations but spoiled by missing Broome. RC just advised us on embarkation they were not going to Broome ( this was the major reason many people booked this cruise ), handled very poorly by RC. Most people on the ship were upset with rubbish being broadcast by the captain about unforeseen tides etc, cruise critic started a letter to RC complaining of the poor handling and lots of people signed if they could find out about it ( no help from RC of course ). In the end RC just washed their hands of any responsibility and no compensation was offered, just as expected. The visits to the ports were good ( if you organized it yourself that is, otherwise you were ripped off badly by RC organized tours ). Reading previous reviews I agree with them about the food, entertainment, staff etc and especially about the RC prices on board for drinks, coffees, internet and shop items being at least 30% more expensive than on Australian Ships with currency differences. Keith the cruise director did a good job and his staff were excellent, funny how the captain was taken off after first cruise and new captain on second 10 day trip, was it the Broome mishandling ?? Apparently the Broome incident made the news in Perth! And lastly don't expect any information about the ports from RC, no maps or talks on what to expect ashore, just hard sell of their tours.

14 Nights to Singapore, then 10 Nights around Asia
