We chose this cruise for the itinerary and we weren't wrong.
Starting at Singapore, so we did the long flight from London first & spent 2 days in the city before picking up the ship. Don't miss Singapore what a fabulous city, could have stayed for a week.
Embarkation was flawless, sitting having lunch before we knew.
Cabin was a little tired, a tile missing off the mosaic shower tray.
Sofa a bit worn.
It was a balcony cabin with bed, sofa , shower room etc, quite standard.
Great service from Nico who looked after the cabin very well.
Concierge was in the library on level 8 everyday. Nothing was too much trouble for her.
She was a great help.
You were given canapés every afternoon as part of the concierge package, they were delivered by 3pm often we didn't get back to the room until after 6pm. Prawns etc left out all that time...we asked for them to be stopped as we didn't want to risk eating them. We said something like nibbles...ie Crisps & nuts would be better. The next day we got a large bowl of walnuts !
We had 2 days pre cruise.
We would have stayed longer. We had a plan to fit in as much as we could.
Big Red Bus to see the city & orientate us.
Lunch at Spago on the 57th floor of the Marina bay Hotel.
Look around the Singapore Gardens then cocktails on the rooftop at the National gallery where there are 2 bars.
We tried both, Smoke & Mirrors is the cocktail bar & Aura is a restaurant plus outdoor bar.
perfect day out. Get to the national gallery at dusk and see the view change from daylight to nighttime.The view is fabulous at nighttime when the city comes alive.
