We boarded in Muscat and chose this cruise for the itinerary stopping at Mumbai, Goa, Mangalore, Cochin, Sri Lanka, Sabang & Phuket. We knew most of the ports. There wasn't lots to do in Mangalore or Sabang but we knew that before but it was good to get off and have a look around. Quite a few days at sea so be prepared to be up early if you want to lay in the sunshine. We enjoyed the ship, the staff are all fantastic but the best bit are the west end style shows that are on 6 nights of the week. Better than most American Cruise lines....Norwegian, RCL etc. We ate in the restaurant every night and chose the same table number as we liked the waiting staff in that area. Food was excellent. Service in the bars on this particular cruise was quick. On other cruises we have found long waits to be served. Not sure if this was because less people were drinking or a better system of being served.

Nice Itinerary

Cabin Review

Cabin
We liked the cabin as it was centrally located on Deck 8. A normal inside cabin, just a little longer. As this cruise was 2 weeks we wish we had just done an outside. Inside never bothers us but 2 weeks felt a long time without a window.
