nice touch

Cruise was part of the relocation of the boat from England to Sydney.

Cabin was great being one of those built in the refurbishment in January

Entertainment was good particularly the Aussie Boys and Hayden Smith and his wife. The promenade shows were also very good. The piano player in the Schooner Bar was also good particularly given the distractions he had to deal with.

Cabin Review

Panoramic Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin P2

Excellent cabin. Very large. Panorama windows were fantastic. Excellent storage space. Only downside was lack of storage space in the bathroom (room could accommodate 4 but no room for 4 towels let alone the other items)

Port Reviews


Easy to get around and no hassles. Can take train from port to most places.

Kelang (Kuala Lumpur)

Due to remote location of port this was basically the only way to get into town. As a shore excursion the usual inflated prices applied. The guide on the bus did however provide an interesting commentary


Great place to stop. Exhilarating sights and great beaches and very clean. Get 8 people and do the island hopping trip. Just turn up at the small wharf about 1km from the port. Leaves on demand.
