Not pleased with the ship, the third rate entertainment and especially the suite :

Sail Date: October 09, 2016

Reviewed: 1 month ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

With the exception of the Diamond Princess Players and a few 'professional' acts - too many acts were like 3rd rate AMATEUR HOUR - have seen better when I was a 12 years old in camp!  And - the Cruise Director was himself just a complete mistake!  Even the Wheelhouse singer and musician were incompetent, and the lounge singer/guitarist in both the Wheelhouse and the Pizzeria were horrible! As to our Jr. Suite - it CREAKED AND CRACKED ALL NIGHT LONG - for 6 nights - even through they could have moved us on the 5th night, but DID NOT!!!  Yeah, they tried to stop the squeaks, but could NOT.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Our Jr. Suite - it CREAKED AND CRACKED ALL NIGHT LONG - for 6 nights - even through they could have moved us on the 5th night, but DID NOT!!!  Yeah, they tried to stop the squeaks, but could NOT.  
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Most all visited ports were at least 1-1/2 HOURS away from the Excursion sites. In Thailand, Bangkok was a 2-1/2 hour bus ride in EACH DIRECTION.
Entertainment
Mainly 3rd rate Amateur Hour stuff!. And what a waste of a Cruise Director - like he 'phoned it in'.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
While most ALL passengers were either American, Australian, Canadians or otherwise Caucasian, the food selections were mainly Asian - and even the Asians on the ship - lived mostly in San francisco area! NOT PLEASED.
To be fair - Dining Staff was EXCELLENT!
Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan
Osaka, Japan Did Kyoto, not Osaka - was nice.
Busan (Pusan), South Korea
Shanghai, China
Hong Kong
NOT the ships fault, but we could not dock until 7-HOURS past our schedule due to very rough seas and very bad weather.
Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam
Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand
Was not going to take a 5-HOUR BUS ride back and forth, took a shuttle to Pattaya City, only 40 minutes away - nice.
Singapore
We love Singapore!

Tip

FIND ANOTHER SHIP TO CRUISE ON!
