Review Summary

we enjoyed the cruise very much, for the ports that we were able to see. but we were very disappointed with the continued changes to the itinerary. This happened several times and turned several port days to sea days- these were NOT weather related changes. The changes narrowed our experience.

when they would move a departure time up in a port they did not increase the time in the next port, it was frustrating.

There was noise from the deck above.

Ship Tip

On this ship it is important to has a cabin centered in the ship. We did hit some rough waters and it is a small ship without the stabilizing system of the larger O ships. We also were called first for disembarking at ports.

This was our first port in China and it took hours for the customs to clear the ship. Narrowing our time off the ship to just 2 hours but I think it was a port stop used for the purpose of clearing customs- we were not warned about this and had booked a private tour for the day-
