Review Summary

Having been reluctant to ever cruise due to our worry about getting sea sick, we finally decided to try a short 7day cruise close to home. We departed from Singapore, stopped at Penang,Port Klang,Phuket and return.  Ship: Although it is not brand new, it is wonderfully maintained. Promenade with  Lovely walking track, fantastic 3 tiered dining room. we had the late seating and met a great couple from Australia who we are still in touch with. It was great to meet up each day at dinner and exchange notes on our different excursions. We did not use the pools much as there were always quite busy and we were worried about the sheer numbers of bodies using it each day but then noticed that each pool was drained and cleaned every night and re-filled so after a few days we felt it was safe enough to use.Yummy  Staterooms: We had a Jnr.Suite at 282 Sq ft and were amazed at how large it was. The balcony was great with a chair and sun lounger . The walk in wardrobe was plenty spacious for all our stuff with room for two large suitcases. Bathroom was adequate with full tub and shower although the water temperature was never quite hot enough to want to use the tub. The bed was comfy and we had the best ever sleep every night.  Our steward was great and we started to look forward to which towel animal we would get each night. Entertainment was great, food was lovely. Even in the buffet dining room there was lots of variety and food was good. The tablets I had bought for sea sickness never needed... so we were sold on cruising as the BEST ever way to vacation...

We loved the two formal nights, got all dressed up and had a party... I think this is really special and makes the whole experience a little more special than the free style casual cruising on NCL
