This port should never have been included in the Itinerary. The shuttle bus took us into the town but we were not able to get off and explore as it was impossible to walk anywhere. The entire town is under construction and there was no entry to any of the buildings. It seriously looked like and Earthquake had hit it. Everyone got off the shuttle bus and straight onto the next shuttle bus to return us to the ship. Read Less

Hired a taxi for the day.. driver stayed with us for the day and is way cheaper than booking a Princess excursion. You just create your own itinerary on the fly and the taxi driver is happy to oblige

It was interesting so we’re glad we went but it’s being developed, probably over developed, and it’s like a huge building site with Chinese companies throwing up hotels everywhere. The people were lovely though.

This port is complicated. The people and the place are wonderful. However, it presents as a third-world country. I travel the world to experience how other cultures and peoples differ from my own experience of the world…so, I found it fascinating. That said, a number of our shipmates were VERY put off by the squalor, apparent poverty and trash-filled streets/beaches. Read Less

The ship shuttle bus drops us near a market downtown. We enjoyed walking along the street near the market but didn't spend too much time in the market as the heat/smells were overwhelming the market.

This port is a joke. There is zero port facilities, except a shuttle bus that takes you to downtown Sihanoukville. We were dropped off in a dirty, ugly and chaotic open air market. Walking on what looks like a sidewalk is downright dangerous because it’s uneven and muddy; motor bikes and scooters can travel anywhere they like, including sidewalks. Before you even get off the bus, tour venders bombard you with local tours. But with the chaotic traffic, how would I know that they could bring us back before the ship departs? Many of our fellow cruisers didn’t even get off the shuttle bus. Some were a little braver and took a walk for several blocks before getting the next available bus back to the ship. This port is totally unprepared for cruise passengers, and they don’t even seem to care. As I said, it’s a joke, and it’s an expensive joke at that, since most passengers have to pay for a visa, even if they decide to stay on the ship the whole time. Read Less

Cambodja is not much developed. Roads are in terrible conditions and it is very dirty. There was a shuttle from the pier to some square. Here a number of TukTuk drivers offered there services. We started on $80 for a TukTuk the entire day but baargained down to $50. Still probably a high price for cambodia! We went to the waterfall which took about 45 minutes. The road was sometimes none existing and we had to get of and push the tuktuk out of the mud. also there was two "tolls" we're we had to pay some guy sitting in a hammok money for unclear reasons. Anyway the waterfall was soo beautiful it was woth all hazzle! Then we went to the beuatiful Otres beach and had a great lunch including beer for just $4. Finally the market which was an interesting experience Read Less
