Nino cabin steward was amazing! Friendly efficient super clean the cabin always and he is a hero! My husband lost his insulin and Nino found it! Thank you! In Jasmine dining room and Teppanyaka, Alwyn was wonderful. Friendly and always attentive. Alfifi in Le Bistro very attentive. And last but most recommended are Clifford and Samhain in the Grand Pacific Dining room! What an amazing couple of friendly and personable persons attending to our desires at a moments notice with a big smile and friendly comments. Great servers! All highly recommended for promotions and new contracts!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Yes, mostly. The carpets on stairs had many stains. Stardust, the theatre was poorly designed. You could only get into row from middle. Need to make an aisle on each side next to wall in theater. Yep reasons. Safety in case of emergency it would be hard to flee and not have to bother patrons already seated.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great bed enough room to move around. Wished hanging closer was bigger.

Ship tip

Enjoy the free style dining options in Alcazar and Grand Pacific. The buffet is great but so noisy and always crowded difficult to find a seat to sit

3 out of 5
Long bus ride to walk in boys I am garden which was nothing special and then a quick peek at the government buildings, which were impressive. Guide was awful did not say anything except when we asked. We should have taken the tour to Kuala Lumpir which was a long two hour ride one way but at krast we would have Deen something instead of walking in the rain in the botanical gardens!


5 out of 5
