We wanted to dine in the beautiful Olympic dining room before it was removed from the ship at the end of it's repositioning to Vancouver BC, for dry docking. Apparently it will be moved into one of the new H class ships designed to supercede the popular Solstice class.
This venue really should have been kept as it is very unique. Many people I spoke to aboard thought it was a bad idea remving the 'Highlight' of the ship and putting a Tuscan Grill in its place. The woodwork and detailing is incredible and really showed how skilled the ship carpenters and fitters were back in 1910.
We tried all the restaurants aboard, each one had something for all tastes. The main restaurant was brilliant. All of them exuded a uniquely crafted ambience. There is something for everyone!
As I require a wheelchair accessible cabin we had no choice but to accept an inside as that was all that was left for those with special needs. It was clean, fresh and tastefully appointed with more than enough room to turn around and stow everything. No problems except the power adaptor board for my wheelchair was confiscated by security. A quick word with guest relations and it was returned.
One must be well prepared to travel in Asia if you are in a wheelchair. Singapore, a shoppers and ship lovers paradise. There is a fabulous mobile phone/tablet store in the cruise terminal. Many people trade up to the latest model as soon as it is released. I purchased a 2nd hand phone with 6 months warranty and a spare battery for half the price than at home.
Went to Crocodylus park. Fantastic
Free accessible bus to the city. It was Easter weekend but still things to do. The market in the park was great.
Tender only so stayed aboard
We missed this port for security reasons and rightly so.
