Review summary

Getting on the ship in Singapore was a huge mess.  Hours and hours of waiting and the ship ended up leaving about 3 hours late. 

 

All ports that required us to tender were a mess also.   The cruise director was actually Boo'ed off the stage one night as guests were so upset.   In short, it appeared they had not actually run tenders before. 

 

The food in the dining room was on par with what I have had in my 10 + other cruises.     Food options and quality outside of the dining room were a huge let down.   The windjammer food was horrible.   It was a rare occurrence when you actually found food that was hot, compared to luke warm or cold.

 

The ONLY other non paid food options outside of the windjammer was a small sandwich shop on the 5th floor that handed out small sandwiches horrible pizza slices that reminded me what we got in school lunches 35 years ago.

Dining room food was in line with other cruises. Windjammer is your only other (non paid) option and it was bad.... Really bad. The worst I have ever seen.

They drop you off far from anywhere. You have to purchase bus tickets into town or purchase a tour through the ship.
