Review summary

The cruise ship was excellent with more than enough facilities for all tastes. the food was very good, great choice and service. The itinerary was my main reason for booking the cruise and most ports of call were very good and enjoyable to visit. However I did not know that Bangkok was so far away from the port and we had very limited time to enjoy it. I was disappointed with a couple of things. I thought prices were high for alcohol, shop goods  and excursions. Another thing I was really disappointed in was that there was no free wi-fi, it was 79 cents per minute or a package of minutes could be bought. Because I had no mobile phone connection on the ship I needed to contact home using internet services and I was annoyed at having to pay for it.

Try to source own excursions and be prepared for on board spending to be more that other cruise lines.
