I recommend the Costa Allegra if you do not require a top of the line ship for your cruise, because the splendid itinerary is what's most important (Hong Kong, Philippines, Borneo, Malaysia, Sultanate of Brunei, Singapore, 2 ports in Vietnam, Sanya on Hainan Island (China). We had fabulous experiences in each port and several sea days for relaxation. This 17 year old ship had a mini facelift when it was repositioned to its new home port of Hong Kong last year, and everything is clean and sparkling. Its 4 and 5 day cruises are aimed at asian guests, but this 14 day itinerary was offered mainly to travellers from the UK and Europe. I found that onboard activities on sea days were unimaginative, but service was uniformly excellent, the evening entertainment was superior, and the quality of the food was rather good.
