Viking rated #1! Not for this cruise. Short amount of time in Bangkok. Included tour was much too short. For a city like Bangkok, more time is needed. Next stops, Kuala Lampur and Singapore needed much more time. Tours were ok, but guides needed a better command of the English language.

The time spent in Indonesia could have been put to better use by extending Bangkok and Singapore. Jakarta needed no more than an hour, not two days. While interesting, the poor infrastructure, horrendous traffic, extremes between poverty and wealth. The next two stops, in Indonesia, could have been avoided altogether to give us the needed time in Bali.

Bali, the enchantress of the Pacific, gee I wish we saw it!

Cabin Review

Very comfortable. Bathroom very convenient, compact but at the same time, some what roomy. The shower was wonderful and you could turn around in it. The veranda was nice to use.
