Fabulous city easy to get around to see the sights... costa did not give any info about any buses etc apart from own excursions... this is very poor most ports lay on free buses from ports and really costa could not provide excursions for 5000 people... I have never come across such an unhelpful attitude to helping their customers Read Less

Lots to do in Singapore, great place to wander around and explore. Enjoyed the garden domes and went to a fancy rooftop bar for a cocktail and to see the city lights at night. Found a great bar called Crazy Elephant for those who enjoy rock/blues music, resident band were brilliant. Don't miss the Muslim quarter especially the area around Arab Street, great little boutique shops and Mediterranean restaurants. Read Less

Plenty to see and do in Singapore. The night time show in the Gardens by the Bay is a must see, on twice a night. Ship berthed within 40 minutes walk of the Gardens and hence the local metro links

Singapore is always amazing, so much to see and do and I can't wait to go back again. Clean, orderly, with great food and people.

Fascinating city best done on your own. Our post-cruise hotel was the Marina Bay Sands, which is spectacular. Don't miss Gardens by the Bay.

A clean, vibrant and lively city with something for everyone. The marina area (and evening supertree music) a real highlight. Botanical gardens might sound dull to some but really interesting here. Application system to bring prescribed medicines into the city worked well. Taxis cheapish but metro also easy and a great way to get around. Read Less

Day -1 Singapore Sat Mar 2, 2019 We landed in Changi Airport at 10 pm on Saturday Mar 2, 2019. Singapore Tourist Card is a 1 day pass offering unlimited travel on MTR and buses for S$10 (plus S$10 refundable deposit). Kiosks sell them at the Airport, but they close at 9pm, and there are no self-serve kiosks at the airport. Strongly recommend this card, unless one does not intend to use public transportation. If you have previously travelled in any MTR, then you will have no problem at all with MTR in Singapore. Kids under 7 and under 0.9m travel free. I enquired with the MTR inspector regarding my child being under 7, but over 0.9m and he replied free. I like that answer. I booked the M Hotel at 81 Anson Road, Singapore 079908 which is situated at the Marina Bay. We did not book their fairly comprehensive breakfast (about S$20 pp), as we wanted to have an early lunch at the famous Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice restaurant. The hotel is: 18 mins drive (21 Kms) from Airport 5 mins walk to nearest MTR Tanjong Pagar) 8 mins walk to China town. 8 mins drive to Marina Cruise Centre, where NCL Jewel docks. Day 00 Singapore Sun Mar 3, 2019 9.15am walked towards the Maxwell Food Centre in Singapore. We decided to go for Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant, simply because of the many positive Yelp reviews and also the fact that the place was featured by Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay. The restaurant opens at 10am and already there is a very long lineup. Other places serve similar menu and get only customers who have no patience for waiting in line. Service was fast, but do not expect too much, except having a chance to taste this famous dish as this is a food court and tables were not necessarily spotlessly clean. I ordered 2 Hainanese Chicken Rice and 2 vegetable dishes for S$18. Fifteen minutes later, I was walking away with my order. The chicken was very tender with practically no fat. There is a sauce that you get in a small side container that would spice the food up, and I find the meat to be quite bland without. Not expensive, and worth a try. We took MTR to Mustapha Centre, very interesting place but could not find anything worthwhile to purchase there. I had ordered tickets online from Klook for Garden by the Bay for admission to Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. US$ 22.70 adult US$ 13.85 (Child 3-12) Total CAD $74.35 This ticket is only good for the day that you select. Check the dates as the place is sometimes closed. While there is a discount when purchasing tickets from Klook, in our case, it was a hassle to exchange the Klook coupon with an actual ticket only at the Red Dot Design Museum at 11 Marina Blvd, 018940. The entrance to the Garden by the Bay is 18 Marina Garden Drive, 018953. This is a minimum 16 mins walk (or 12 mins taxi ride). This superbly magical place is truly a must see. You do not have to be a flower lover to enjoy. Best time to visit is 6 pm-10pm as you have time to see everything during day time and savour the lights during the evening spectacular show time. Do bring a sweater as it is chilling cold inside and there is a lot of walking with no bench or chairs anywhere to rest. I could have easily stayed there for the entire day Read Less

I spent a few days in Singapore prior to my cruise on the Sapphire Princess. Great city, great food, lots of shopping. I was impressed by the super trees and the two giant conservatories at Gardens on the Bay and spent a lot more time wandering around the attraction than I thought I would. Food is very good all over Singapore - chili crab, Hainan chicken, laksa noodle. Many malls have food courts that have hawker stall type stands serving inexpensive but good local food. Read Less

Singapore is fantastic. Don't be afraid to use the MRT. It is easy to use, gets you to almost anywhere in City and is very inexpensive to use. Very clean City and very safe. Cannot wait to see Singapore again.
