We embarked in Singapore and it was probably the best embarkation we have ever had. Very fast and efficient. We went straight to our cabin and one of our suitcases arrived soon after. Our cabin steward as always, was fabulous. These guys are amazing. In fact all the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Yes, the ship in places is a bit tired but this did not detract from the cruise. My main gripes are the food in the MDR was not as good as on previous cruises and the price of drinks is excessive!
We did this cruise as we wanted to visit India and we were not disappointed. This was an amazing cruise and one we will never forget.
