We chose this cruise because our travel agent brought it to our attention. She and others from our area were going and it was going to a part of the world we had never visited. The ship is great and the food is very good. With multiple restaurants, there was enough variety. They were also able to accomodate my gluten free requirements. We had a wonderful suite on the 7th floor. Some of the tour descriptions were more about flowery words than about where the tour would be taking us so sometimes we were signed up for two tours that were doing basically the same thing. They were very good about allowing us to cancel tours. Some of the areas we visited were very poor. Wouldn't go back. I did enjoy seeing Haikou, China and Ha Long Bay in Vietnam. We were usually too tired in tht evening to attend the shows.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7004
The room was a good size. We were able to unpack everything and stow our luggage under the bed.
