Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Good ingredients but a waste as style of cooking not suitable, for instance, cod fish and egg plant tasted weird with cheese. Most food a dat salty. Pizza in sorrento pizza not cheesy enough compared to those on ovation.

Chic

5 out of 5

Nice service but there were times when one of my appetizer was left out. Some food was a bit too salty and Asian food was cooked exactly the same way despite different names.

Windjammer Marketplace

4 out of 5

Variety for breakfast is wide but no change throughout the cruise. There was live noodle soup and Indian dosai cooking section. Also some spread of western, Indian and chinese cuisines.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Laser tag - an activity not to be missed. It was fun and exciting. Bumper car - unexpectedly short queue but enjoyable. Pool - less crowded and peaceful on port days. Deck chairs widely available most of the time including sea days.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
There were at least 3 3D movies in main theater during my cruise. Movies were also available in two70 and outdoor pools. Main theater - had watched headliners - sequin & feathers on day 2, it looked similar to legs on ovation of the seas Also watched sonic odyssey on 5th night. A performance with violin, harp, drums, supported with dances, singing and orchestra. Had watched starwater in two70 on 1st night. It was the only performance that requires reservations. All activities, games and performances were in English.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Housekeeping - over all good service. But was a bit unhappy when tea spoons were only placed in cabin on last day of cruise and our mugs were not replaced after the earlier ones were removed during room cabins by staff. Over all, satisfactory services.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Overall clean but the cleanliness of the handle at the wall outside cabins need more improvements it felt greasy.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Overall clean. Obstructed balcony with sofa bed.

Ship tip

Must go to box office on first day of cruise to reserve laser tag and starwater show. North star and ifly are chargeable.

Phuket, Thailand

Ship was tendered at patong beach. Shops and shopping centre are within walking distance. Paid 300 bhat to nearby shopping centre via tuk tuk car.

Penang (Pulau Pinang), Malaysia

5 out of 5
Free shuttle buses are available but you need to be fast enough to wave it down. There are shops and eateries within walking distance. Mastercard and Visa not widely acceptable in most places even in 7-11 & other convenience shops. Nice and cheap street food.

Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia

2 out of 5
Nothing to visit and see nearby but there are shops in the cruise terminal.

Disembarkation
