A Taste of Southeast Asia

Sail Date: January 27, 2008

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was a perfect size to accommodate our needs. Not too large to get lost but not too small to be cramped. Daily activities were well planned however the tours offered require some fine tunning as time allocated was insufficient in most ports and unnecessary stops were made along the way. Overnight excursions listed as two day trips were in fact barely one full day. Hotels offered on the overnight excursions were excellent. It was an extremely aggressive trip in that there were a number of ports which perhaps could have been included on another trip or this trip could have been extended by at least two days. It was however, an wonderful experience and certainly provided us with destinations that we are likely to return to in the not too distant future. Viet Nam was a true experience and one not to be missed.

Pros: variety of ports of call

Cons: distance from the ports to the main tourist areas

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? Yes!

Hai Phong (Hanoi), Vietnam
The Hanoi Hilton but it must be viewed with an open mind. Another overnight absolutely necessary.
Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand
It all a must see. Overnight is highly recommended.
Don't Miss: All of the temples
Nha Trang, Vietnam
Don't miss the beaches in this picturesque port. The restaurant and seafood are outstanding
Hue (Da Nang), Vietnam
While we didn't visit Da Nang we took an excursion to Hoi An. This port was great. A touch of old Viet Nam. Small streets, outstanding shopping and outrageous restaurants
Sihanoukville, Cambodia
This port was average at best. In order to properly see Cambodia a trip to Angor Wat should be added to the cruise otherwise this particular port holds no appeal
Don't Miss: There are nonoe
