Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin:

We chose this cruise, Wonders of Asia, because of the itinerary and the fact that the weather in this part of the world at this time would be good.

We applied for our Sri Lanka visa on line which took ten minutes and was free. Then for the Indian visa - this took hours to complete as the Indian system kept crashing and we had to start again. If we had known how difficult it would be we may not have booked the cruise. On top of all the grief in applying they have the cheek to charge each of you 100 US. All of our fellow passenger agreed it had been a nightmare.

We flew to India with TUI in a Dreamliner and upgraded to the Premium cabin which is well worth the extra cost especially on our return flight which was 13.5 hours with a 7 hour time difference.

Cabin Review

Cabin Outside Standard

A good size window, good lighting, plenty of hanging and draw space. A two seater settee and chair. Bathroom with shower and the inevitable shower curtain. The cabin is at the front of the ship and had no engine noise at all.
