Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: the Middle East
  • Cabin Type: Suite

The ship is well maintained for its age. We were on every deck, as we love walking and noticed staff everywhere trying to maintain high standards. Excellent Staff, Delicious dining options, Fresh Fruits available in the Buffet. The assigned seating at dinner was picture perfect. We had a table at the front of the Dining Room with excellent sunset view every evening. Massage experience was divine and the health bar was a plus. The gym is huge with all the newest equipment and you can track your workout progress with an app connected to the equipment. The ship excursion were a bit disorganized and we had some minor issues. The wifi was dependable, just make sure you get the unlimited package as you wont regret it. Our room attendant was unbelievable and the room itself was awesome. Although you will have to pay for all the extras, it was not that bad.

We will return

Cabin Review

Cabin S3 9008

Huge closet. comfortable beds. Lots of space to unwind. The bathtub was great!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Great service dining on the Palm ah this luxurious resort. The food was not to our liking

Abu Dhabi

Excellent Day with shows and dinner, camel riding and Jeep dune bashing


Hot day, but managed to walk over to the market not far from the ship and explore other interesting areas of town

City Tour

Was excited about this stop but after the hard work to obtain expensive visas $180 US, and planning the excursions for the 2 days we were docked, we were disappointed. The guide for our tour was excellent but the city of Cochin is a dump. Dirty everywhere and lots of poor people about. A real downer after coming so far to see India for the first time. Do yourself a favor and skip the visas and remain aboard

Fascinating city with many historical areas to explore

Kelang (Kuala Lumpur)

The best city by far on the cruise. Do yourself a favour and skip the ship tours and just go and explore for yourself. The ship tour Kuala Lumpur on your own was horrible. You get into town at 11:30 am and you must leave by 2:00 pm. We hired our own transport and then cabbed around to all the sites.. Batu Caves...

City Tour

Wow what a clean city. State of the art transportation coming off Sentosa Island (like Disneyland) Incredible show at the Supertrees. You gotta see it

Like Disleyland. Beautiful Area with Photo Op of the Merlion

Mekong Delta Cruise

The best ship excursion on a scorching hot day. We were treated like royalty on a full 10 hour day excursion through the Mekong Delta. great activities with a traditonal vietnamese fish lunch included
