The track is nice but it is a pity that it is not along the ship, it is interupted by stairs at the aft section.

Great stage shows, but slightly below par bar singers.

Children's Programs

We did not have kids with us.

Service and Staff

Warm and very much welcoming

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Well designed, ample public space. It is a pity that the promenade is interupted with stairs, so the jogging track. Those made walk or run not so nice.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Should be perfect if it is not noisy. It could be from the air con fan. Clean and comfort.

Ship tip

Very good ship, worth trying.

I just came to the city by the shuttle bus. Not attractive for me

Nha Trang, Vietnam

3 out of 5
This was my second time here so just to the city with the shuttle.

Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam

It is very far from HoChiMinh City. Since I had been on this excursion twice, this time I just visited the market by the free shuttle.

Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand

Nice place to visit. Shuttle to the center of Pattaya was provided. Bangkok is far from here.

Ko Samui, Thailand Did not visit port
