Silver Shadow

12 Night Maylasia & Philippines (Singapore To Hong Kong)

Sail date: February 25, 2016

Ship: Silver Shadow

Cabin type: Suite

Cabin number: 825

Traveled as: Singles/Friends

Review summary

The ship was excellent and the service was the best ever.  The food however, while beautifully presented was often not hot and the beef, other than the filet, was very tough. The chef said they get all their beef from Kansas City so this issue was not a local problem.

The side trips were good, but the write ups consistently described the animals we could see they did not say that they were nocturnal and rarely seen during the day.  The monkeys however were great.

All in all it was a wonderful trip and I strongly recommend 3-4 days in Singapore if you had not been there.  It was  really beautiful city and the botanical garden was the best ever.

Thanks to Richey for all his help in putting this together.  He was the best yet.

The national cemetary had a very short stop and it was the most interesting thing in Manila to me.
