SE Asia overview

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We enjoyed this cruise and would recommend it.  The ports were very interesting.

We sailed on the Diamond Princess a year ago but we felt the condition of the ship was not as good this time.  The ship was going into dry dock for a facelift a couple weeks after we sailed so we surmised that our timing was bad.

The only thing we did not like was the description of this as a 12 day cruise.  It was not.  It was a seven day cruise followed by a five day cruise.  Apparently, Princess combines shorter cruises in SE Asia to create longer cruises.  This results in a bit of confusion as other people on the ship are not doing the same cruise as you and quite a few onboard activities are repeated for the people who came on board after the first week.   Not optimal.

the different ports, the choice of restaurants on the excursions, the guides mastering the english language, not too happy with length of shopping time in all the excursions! wish there was more time allocated for shopping.

Ck before you book, specially if book a mini suite with a tub that is not proper, and Japanese toilet sear extremely uncomfortable. Also not much help on board, the ship dock in all commercial ports with nothing around, but dinning service was very good, the PIZZA was the best at sea.

First Southeast Asia Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Good itinerary to witness SE Asia in a short period. Crew seemed somewhat disengaged. Some activities weakly organized. This cruise lacked the attentive professionalism we have experienced in the past 7-8 cruises. Food presentation disappointing and quality of food was marginal to basically good.Wait staff could use better training to eliminate wasted motion, order errors, etc. This ship needs a comprehensive audit.

Check to make sure your ship has been renovated within the last two or three years.
