This was our first ever cruise and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. From the moment we boarded in Singapore after waiting hours in the Port and treated like sheep moving us from pen to pen we were greeted by someone occupying our room. The sickness on board and the necessity to consistently scrub up in order to avoid the sickness constantly had you anxious that you might be next. The Port of Cambodia was so bad that we could not get off the Shuttle Bus to explore this town or meet the people who desperately needed our tourist dollar. It looked like an earthquake had hit it. This cruise had a very high percentage of older people which made getting on and off at Ports a little slower than I expected. We ate in the Marquis dining area as we felt that this would be safer than the buffet to avoid contamination. Our section of the dining room had tables that were closed as staff were not available to service them. Some of the staff became sick and the remainder of waiters were given cleaning duties to try and combat the virus, therefore leaving a shortage of staff in the dining room. The food was very average and there were no salt and pepper shakers on the table, you needed to wait for staff to provide you with this and we were not allowed to hold the shakers ourselves so there were many times we got too much salt or not enough salt on our food.

Never Again !!!!!

Our cabin was lovely. We had new furnishings and the space was quite surprising. No complaints here it was the best part of our trip.
