The quality and number of exotic, new-to-us destinations on this cruise made it a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience.  Highlights included Malta (perfect location for a Segway tour with all it's hills), Crete (hired our own expert in Minoan civilization as a guide - Marilina Paters was fantastic), Muscat and UAE (especially Dubai - incredible architecture, and the light and water shows at the base of Burj Khalifa at night), Myanmar (overnight excursion to Bagan to tour the ancient temples; Yangon - Shwedagon pagoda at night), Singapore and Bali.

Fine. Although directly across from a staff service door.

Ship Tip

BB King Blues Band was a fantastic addition - great, authentic music in the Crow's Nest every night.

Great place for a Segway tour, since it is very hilly. Can go for greater distances and see more in a short period of time.

Look up Marilina Paters as a guide if you want to learn about Minoan Civilization history.

Stayed on for 4 days after cruise was over - Marina Bay Sands hotel is fantastic & over the top - especially the infinity pool on 57th floor. Don't miss it!
