A Multinational Cruise

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Asia
Embarkation: Singapore
Every five years or so we visit my brother in Singapore but always like to do something extra. This time it was a cruise to enable us to visit places we would not otherwise be able to get to to and explore in the short time available.

We treated ourselves to a Grand Suite and were not disappointed. We had plenty of room and breakfast on the balcony was a joy. The suite privileges were also pretty good, particularly the happy hour in the Viking Crown lounge. We also had an excellent suite attendant from China called Andy and an equally friendly suite ambassador called Jay. In fact all the crew were extremely friendly and helpful.

We used the putting green and the spa where my masseuse was from Yorkshire and enjoyed the excellent pool facilities.

My favourite activity on a cruise is the evening entertainment in the theatre which was excellent and largely run by Brits. There were two production shows, two shows with brilliant speciality acts and a More singer/pianist called Linda Gentille an American who performed partly in Mandarin.

There were 51 nationalities on the ship which gave it a very special atmosphere. No nationality predominated although there were about 200 mainland Chinese and 200 Australians.

This was probably the best ship we had been on after five previous cruises. Less
