Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Extremely large, the balcony held a chaise and two chairs with a table - padding was removed at night to stay dry and replaced in the morning. The steward learned my schedule and cleaned when he knew I would be gone.

Ship tip

Don't miss any of the nightly shows they are fantastic and varied.

Fell in love with Bangkok. Did the Royal Barges and canals tour and got to see a huge part of the city. Second day went to Ancient City which was a historical representation of Thailand.

Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Reminded me of a Caribbean third world country with beggars and filth everywhere.

Chan May (Hue), Vietnam

Had a chance to explore daily life and get a feeling for the people. They were extremely friendly.

Ha Long Bay City (Hanoi), Vietnam

Ths was in communist North Vietnam and we were given the "party line" a lot. Almost missed my second excursion the Water Puppet show because the tour guide added a stop at a pearl factory to try and sell jewelry.

Hong Kong

5 out of 5
Did the excursion and saw almost all the popular place, Victoria Mountain, resolute beach, major temple, a ride in a junk through the harbor, and then a dim sum luncheon at the largest floating restaurant in Hong Kong. i then spent the night at the Regal Airport Hotel which was fantastic and very beautiful.
