Our travel agent recommended this line. We have traveled extensively...more than 140 countries....and cruised on many cruise lines. We booked because of the itinerary. I have to say it was a horrible experience. There were multiple changes to the itinerary with little explanation which was very disappointing. My husband along with a number of other passengers became ill. The doctor on board was both incompetent and dishonest. My husband and I are both physicians. We were alarmed at his lack of knowledge. Our doc at home wanted to talk to him but he refused to talk/ email her. He lied about other ill passengers. He didn't understand his equipment or lab results. We were planning to go home and had told him that. He pushed us to go to local hospital and lied about his intent. Ultimately they put us off the ship one day before we had planned to leave! Our complaint to the president of the line, Jason M. Montague, went unanswered. I would never recommend this line to anyone!
The food was poor, particularly on the deck at lunch. None of the restaurants were above average in our view. We were very disappointed in the excursions......we had liked the idea that all excursions were included but very disappointed to see it was virtually impossible to go on more than one tour per day.....all seemed to be scheduled at the same time. We found the cabin was very comfortable. We particularly liked the walk-in closet. The negative was that it seemed a bit shop worn. I wondered when it had last been refurbished. I will say the embarkation was well handled and the general staff was very pleasant and helpful. There were aspects of the ship we liked......the walking track, fitness etc. Much of our cruising in the past has included many lectures specifically geared to what we were seeing that day, that was not so on this trip. That was very disappointing to us. Perhaps that was because of the itinerary changed so frequently. We were particularly disappointed that Myanmar was eliminated. I suspect it was because of unrest but we were told it was because of water depth. There was a great deal of discussion about this, also upset. I believe the overall impression of the cruise for many seemed to be tarnished by the perceived dishonesty.
I liked the walk-in closet and storage. The arrangement of the cabin was good but it looked a little shop worn.
this port was added after an itinerary change....we have been there before and had more in depth tours. Found this to be very average.
