Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin: Balcony

The ITINERARY, places we wanted to visit. Rich in culture and history.

Reason for choosing this cruise:The cruise was March 9(Singapore)-April 16 (Venice). We choose this cruise because of the itinerary which was port intensive with only 112 sea days. This is a part of the world that we had not traveled and this itinerary seemed an ideal way to see a number of countries. In this respect the cruise totally lived up to expectations as we visited 22 ports-including embarkation and disembarkation- that we had never visited before allowing us a small sample of what each place had to offer.

Pre-embarkation: Singapore, we did on our own riding the subway all over, easy peesy. featuring Little India, Kampong Glam and Chinatown as well as some historic colonial areas and the Marina Bay Sands area. Lunch at Hawkers stalls was also a highlight.

Cabin Review

Balcony

We had moved from an ocean view to a balcony and there were 3 fewer drawers in balcony.

Rust on balcony and rust on ocean view window outside.

Theater seats were horrible some broken and all made you slide out of them. The isles had a harsh led lighting that made it hard to find your depth of view when walking. Isles across theater were to narrow.

Staff were great and accommodating.

You get what you pay for here!

Ports of call was the reason we chose this Line.
