Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Excellent

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean and as she has just had a remaster very up to date

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a sheltered balcony on deck 6 but next time I would choose either an ocean view or inside as the common rooms were very spacious and you could always find sometime to sit on sea days

Ship tip

Do it! Book an inside cabin

Ports of call

Doha, Qatar Did not visit port

We stayed on the ship as we had to sort out our India visas

Muscat, Oman

4 out of 5
We took the shuttle into the town, walked through the market and along the foreshore

Goa (Mormugao)

1 out of 5
We did a dreadful tour - visited a market then we were dropped at a resort with not much shade for an hour and a half

Colombo, Sri Lanka

4 out of 5
The port offered a large range of stalls right next to the ship. We didn’t do a tour

Phuket, Thailand

3 out of 5
Tendered at Phuket and the rickety pier ended in the sand with a 10 metre walk to the road. Not good if you are needing a walker or walking stick

Penang (Pulau Pinang), Malaysia

4 out of 5
Very hot and unfortunately tendered (not scheduled) which added to the time of the tour. Okay guide but could have been a bit more informative. We visited a street market, museum and stilt houses.

Singapore Marina Bay

5 out of 5
Very clean, great shopping, easy to get around and a visit to Marina Bay Sounds is a must. We had breakfast with the orangutan at the Singapore Zoo, wonderful experience and the zoo is very good.

Chan May, Vietnam

3 out of 5
We just took the shuttle into the nearest village and there were stalks on the pier

Hong Kong

4 out of 5
We left the ship in Hong Kong and flew home

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very quick and not too long to wait for a taxi
