Cruise price was attractive, probably in collaboration with one of the larger travel agency in Hong Kong. However, the quality of the cruise was poor. Food: not much selection even the salad section, dressing unlike what you normally would have, very watery. Food quality is quite low. Pizza with not much topping or dressing. On first day of cruise, it was like a war zone, people have to line up a long time outside the restaurant. Cabin: small compared to other cruise lines. Services: Cabin - good, Restaurant: Very poor. Ship took more passengers than it can handle, thus, not enough tables for guests. Always have to wait a long time for table, waiter not helpful. Bus boy will not clean table and very rude. Too many bar people in the restaurant to try to sell drinks (with not much success) while there is not enough waiters and bus boy. Entertainment: OK (cater to Hong Kong Chinese with Sky Band singing Chinese songs) Embarkation: wait time and processing not as efficient as other cruise lines. Pier change at one port leading to use of shuttle,so excursion time cut down and more expensive transportation costs for guests. Public Rooms/Bar Area: Too small to handle large crowds. Excursions: You can do the same at much less especially if you can find people to carpool with.
