Stayed at Marriott Tang before the cruise on Orchard Road, beautiful place. A must visit is the Gardens by the Sea at the Marina Bay Sands resort complex, and Ce La Vie restaurant on the 49 th floor with spectacular views. Also highly recommended is the Jim Thompson Thai restaurant on Demsey Hill. The Jim Thompson store is a short taxi ride from the ship dock in Khlong Toei, which is only a few miles from the center of Bangkok. This location is a big advantage over larger cruise-ships that must dock 3 hours from Bangkok. The Nautica is beautiful, and in keeping with the Oceania tradition, this ship has the same very high quality food not found on other cruiselines. The Toscana specialty restaurant serves the best Italian meals, superior to any Italian restaurant on land. The pounded veal chop, or the osso bucco are the best we have ever eaten. The entertainment was also excellent. Ollie Makeean from the UK, Steve Corte, and Sally Adams were wonderful. The service staff provided excellent care and attention to the passengers. The grill offers steaks, jumbo shrimp, and lobster tails every night. The dining features a brunch with spectacular displays and ice carvings. At the conclusion of the cruise we stayed for two nights at the Shangri La Kowloon which offers beautiful spectacular rooms facing Hong Kong Harbor. They served an excellent breakfast buffet, and have live entertainment in the lobby at night. In Sihanoukville Cambodia we visited the Don Bosco training facility that takes in 18 year olds for a 2 year apprenticeship who are either very poor or are orphans. They are trained and certified to be able to work in five star resorts in Thailand. In Bangkok we used the services of a local guide who took us to the floating market, railroad market, and for elephant rides.
