We arrived dockside and were greeted by AB our cruise director. A cold drink and a frozen towel later we started our tour of this absolutely beautiful ship ending in our suite where our luggage was waiting for us. And we thought "could anything be better"...until we met VJ our knowledgeable and caring tour guide who daily showed us villages, temples and stupas...and we thought "could anything be better" and found out it could be when we enjoyed the first of many meals prepared by Sumet and served by a professional well trained staff. We cruise many times per year and this was the best ever. We typically rate cruises, hotels and restaurants on a scale of 1 to 10. We have awarded the Santuary Ananda a 14 plus. We are now planning to sail again in April. If you have questions about the total experience and we can help email us at email@example.com
very comfortable with a bedroom and a living room and, best of all a bathroom with two sinks and a seperate bathtub. We loved the aft deck where we started each day with a cappuchino delivered at 7:00 AM.
