Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2017

We chose the cruise because of the itenary 8 stops in 21 nights but we were disappointed that 2 stops had been cut before starting Ho Chi Min City and Bangkok so from 10 to 8.

We stopped firstly at Na Trang by tender, we then went on to Singapore for an overnight stop great place and got berthed, we then moved onto Bali nice resort and beaches lovely people, tendering process was a shambles on the way back to ship the crew headed to the front of the queue leaving the " valued customers " to swelter in the heat.

After leaving Bali all passengers received a letter to inform us that another 3 stops had to be cancelled because of a propulsion problem meaning we didn't have enough speed to make all the stops so Komodo Island, Airlie Beach and Brisbane were cancelled 5 stops now in 21 nights.
