My husband and I chose this cruise because of the itinerary.

The embarkation process ran smoothly and we did not have to wait too long to board the ship in Singapore. We had a cabin near to mid-ship on Deck 4 with an obstructed view - i.e. there was a lifeboat right outside the window so we could only see the sky. The cabin itself was a nice size with two wardrobes and a few shelves. under the bed were two roll out storage boxes which were very useful and the bed were high enough to be able to store the suitcases underneath. There was also a sofa in cabin so you could at least sit and relax without having to sit or lie on the bed. The bathroom was the usual square box with a small shower in the corner and the inevitable plastic shower curtain. You have to step up and down to the bathroom which could be an issue for people with disabilities.

We ate most nights in the Britannia Restaurant at the 8.30 sitting. We had a very pleasant group of people on our table and great fun was had but unfortunately, we did not feel that the food met with the standard we had expected. My husband has a good appetite and asked for extra vegetables and potatoes to be served each night but unfortunately these were the same practically every night, broccolli and cauliflower with chips - really, is that all they could find?

A nice size, with a sofa and coffee table, a good sized bed which was high enough to store cases beneath. The bathroom was small but standard. There was just about sufficient room for clothing to be stored in the rollaway boxes under the bed, the two wardrobes and drawer units. There is a mini bar but no tea/coffee making facilities. There was a hairdryer provided as well as complimentary toiletries.
