Another big hit! Our guide was excellent, spoke excellent English and, despite the enormous crowds, she managed to get through to allow us to easily see the sights. Lunch was fabulous and the sights were awe inspiring!

Actually the trip was called "Best of Bangkok in a Day" and it was an excellent tour. However, it was extremely HOT and humid. We were NOT offered water. Be forwarned that Bangkok is at least 2.5 hours from the port. We would advise taking a tour on day one and spending the night in Bangkok to avoid having to make a 5+ hours trip back and forth each day. Due to grid lock traffic (to be expected in Bangkok) some people's tours did not get back until midnight which meant NO dinner. Read Less

A great city to visit but a long drive from the port. The various temples that we visited were works of art, but after 2 a bit much. Spending time to visit the flower market was a waste of time, it’s a place that only needs 10 minutes, after that became quite boring. The lunch was excellent, the food varied and very tasty.

We really liked the city tour of Bangkok. It was a 2 and half hour drive, but as the guides were so engaging this flew past. We visited the golden Buddha which was amazing and a highlight.

This was a highlight tour. The temples were beautiful and very interesting. The tuk tuk ride went for about 30 mins and was hysterical fun.....we laughed our heads off the whole time. The tuk tuks were in a convoy and took over the town, very funny. Lunch at the Princess Hotel was fantastic and the best food we had had including the ship. I would have liked 15 more minutes to enjoy the lunch though. A very enjoyable tour. Read Less

We booked the tour with an overnight stay in Bangkok. Again, there was a very long drive to get to the tour. We went to several temples and sights but every stop was hurried with little free time to enjoy the sights.. The overnight stay in the Sheraton Hotel was fine but again there was little time to explore on your own. This was an expensive excursion but cut out a lot of the driving to and from the port.

This was by far the worst day of the cruise. Never, never, never will I return to Bangkok. Not only was the drive to the city long and tedious, we then spent the rest of the day in a continual traffic jam. The two temple visits were OK, but we were disappointed that the trip to the royal palace was cancelled because of the King's death. The palace was our initial reason for booking this tour. We had a buffet lunch in a western hotel which was OK, but nothing special considering we were in Thailand. The trip along the river was OK but, as soon as we returned to the bus, it was yet more traffic. Our itinerary took us to a jewellery outlet which sold HIDEOUS items that were certainly not my taste. Then back in the traffic jam to return to the ship. We even had a traffic jam trying to get into the port - and we were the last group to board the ship. Wonder why... Read Less

Travel time in to and out of Bangkok was horribly long. Spent less than 2 hours in the city, which included lunch and shopping (so to speak). More time riding on a bus than enjoying sights is stupid. If this was the case, why not exchange this port for something else. Bangkok was so far away from the port, it was hot and uncomfortable. There were many homeless and the smell of human (not animal) feces on the street was vile. the constant repetition of King Rama IX, this and King Rama IX that was incredibly boring. The temple was OK for a short while, but too much time was wasted there Read Less
