Review summary

The cruise was interesting but a little overpriced. t gohe ship is nice with very high quality staff and dining. The excursions were OK but could have been greatly improved if they had employed headsets so that everyone could hear the guide's information.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Embarkation went smoothly with minimal waiting after a taxi ride from our hotel. Silverseas had a transfer desk at our hotel, but they provided absolutely zero help as we had not booked the hotel through Silverseas..

Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia

4 out of 5
Not much to do right at the port, but an hour bus ride to Kuala Lumpur was worth the time.

Singapore

4 out of 5
We stayed several days on our own after the cruise and enjoyed the activities in Singapore a great amount. The city is a mix of very modern new buildings with older ethnic neighborhoods , and it's metro system is clean and modern and an easy way to get around Singapore.
