Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin:

I chose this cruise to go to Komodo Island.

On boarding I found my cabin (no one giving directions at all) upon entering what was supposed to be a wheelchair cabin I found I could not access the toliet as the beds blocked the way. Contacted room steward and was told someone would come sort it out it took 7 hours before someone arrived not to sort it out but to ask if I wanted my room done morning or evening (he said he would rearrange the beds for me when he came in later which he did).

I had no hot water for the first 7 days of the cruise.

Cabin Review

Cabin was ok when I could finally access toilet not enough room to turn wheelchair without lots of problems. Comfortable enough.

Port Reviews

Singapore

Lovely time in Singapore train travel was great for wheelchairs travelled all over without a single problem

Bali

Not impressed stall holders where too agressive for my taste and being in a wheelchair there was very little access to shops unless you went to the big shopping centres

Komodo Island

The highlight of my trip was the purpose of this cruise and despite negative people telling me I would not be able to do it I acheived what I wanted.

Darwin

Lovely city enjoyed my time there most places have good wheelchair access

Moreton Island

Not much to interest me there was nice to look around but not overly impressed
