I chose this cruise for the itinerary which included all the countries and ports I would like to visit. The night stop in the major ports enabled you to visit everything you needed in the time available.
Better than expected
For a ship with nearly 4000 passengers, there were few times int he 4 weeks when the public rooms were crowded, and with a slight adjustment in your plans you could easily avoid the crowds.
Cabin met my expectation with regard to storage space and facilities.
Cabin kept clean by efficient house keeping
Muscat is a lovely place to visit, and the Omanis always very welcoming
Just walked ashore to local souk but for $10 you can travel by taxi to Royal Palace
Easy to arrange own travel if you are just visiting Port Kochi. For a better look at the area you will need to travel further afield.
Remember local currency needs to be changed at outlet just after immigration but this can get very busy. You can pay for tuk-tuk or taxi on return if you want to change money in town to avoid the queue.
Colorful place but many people surprised by the background rubbish - but no different than other places in India
Plenty to see and do in Singapore. The night time show in the Gardens by the Bay is a must see, on twice a night.
Ship berthed within 40 minutes walk of the Gardens and hence the local metro links
First time to Kagoshima. Took the extra bus (€15) into town rather than the taxi and this was better value. Nice place to visit.
stayed on vessel
embarkation port so did not visit this time
