  • Cabin Type: Aft-Facing Penthouse with Large Balcony

Chose this cruise for the itinerary and we were not disappointed. Crew was friendly, hard working, and made us feel like valued guests. There were many included food venues which served delicious and varied menus. We especially liked O'Sheehans for lunch, although nothing could top the food we received as suite guests in Moderno! The meats and salads were particularly good with excellent flavors and seasonings. Entertainment was super, especially the crew talent show and the crew recognition night. We liked the ship layout and public areas. Elevators were never a problem for us. Didn't miss the lack of flowers or newspapers on board. Our concierge, Hanno, was very helpful and made the whole cruise enjoyable. We felt we got our moneys worth from being in a suite.

We chose the special 3-day tour to the Taj Mahal and is was worth every penny. Well organized with a quality hotel. Got to spend many hours in Agra.

Ship tours were as good as any we've taken on other cruises.

Cabin Review

Aft-Facing Penthouse with Large Balcony
Cabin SF 9232

Wow! Was it ever nice. Spacious, quiet, no problems at all. Arnold, our steward, and Armando, our butler couldn't have served us better. Our cabin was ALWAYS ready for us when we returned. The afternoon snacks and always filled ice bucket were appreciated. The person using the sofa bed said it was the most comfortable they had ever slept in.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The night tour was fantastic and absolutely worth the money. Highly recommend it. You seethe Gardens by the Bay light show, the city from the Marina Bay Skywalk, the light show etc. etc etc.

City Tour

Long bus ride. Glad we took tour but once was enough. Liked the a/c bazaar for quality souvenirs. High tea at Harrods in the mall beneath the Petronas Towers was special.

Our least favorite port. Walked to the Chinese jetties which were OK. Took free city bus around city as a/c was most welcome at it was very hot and humid. Locals were very friendly.


Took Phang Nga island boat tour and really enjoyed it.

City Tour

Good way to see the outdoor laundry, central market and other city highlights. City nicer than we had expected. Definitely a city where an organized tour is best.

Since the sights are so spread out, an organized tour was a good way to see the highlights. The souk was fun.
