Embarkation at Cochin was quick once we actually got on the ship but customs there did make things drag out unnecessarily.
We were in outside cabin deck 2. Plenty of drawer and hanging space and sufficient for the time you actually spend in the cabin. Kettle and coffee/tea provided. Water machines on each floor and a carafe provided in your cabin to top up when needed.
Food in all the al a carte restaurants very good especially enjoyed gallery 47. Salads and other grab and go food in snack shack very good and fresh. We also went 2 of the speciality restaurants which were excellent particularly enjoyed kora la. Buffet restaurant can get crowded at breakfast would be useful if an outside omelette station was also available elsewhere.
