We spent 2 nights in Bangkok prior to departing on the cruise to adjust to the time zone. Getting a taxi to the ship was a challenge, since it was close to our hotel. The taxi drivers didn't want the fare. Our cabin was fine, with a walk in closet and a tub. We spent 2 evenings at Candles on this trip and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The AmphorA dining room staff was wonderful the other evenings. If we did not find anything on the dessert menu appealing, at least there was always ice cream available. We were able to try lots of local food the chef would bring back from shopping trips at port. I would not do this itinerary this time of year again though due to weather. We hardly saw blue skies. The rain prevented the deck barbecue too. Rough seas made the sea days difficult. The ship does provide medicine, but it puts us to sleep. Our favorite activities were the ship's Hoi An excursion and the destination event beach day in Koh Kood, Thailand. Our day in Nha Trang was too short. We would have loved to have more time there. The rickshaw ride on our excursion was nerve wracking. In Hong Kong, we spent 3 more days exploring the city before returning home. Transit was easy with Octopus cards.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Suite
Cabin S 103
The TV is in a strange location and difficult to see from the bed. We notice alot of rocking and rolling with the waves.
