Review Summary

Overall a very enjoyable and memorable trip and one I would recommend to others wanting a small taste is South East Asia. We've experienced 4 cruises with Royal Caribbean and although we're booked to do our 5th next year, I'm a little concerned that their service standards are not as high as they once were - it could simply just be this this ship is larger than the others we've been on.

Food and Dining

Food was fine, but didn't wow.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The weather was beautiful, which unfortunately meant that the pool areas were very busy - pleased to see that the age limit for the Solarium was enforced.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Although most staff were very pleasant and helpful, there seemed to be less of them to the ratio of guests compared to previous RC cruises we've been on.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very clean and well laid out. Apart from being a little tired in some of the public spaces (Solarium especially), I would have rated much higher if one complete side of the main pool deck and ALL of the Casino hadnt been smoking areas. This really detracted from being able to fully enjoy the show amenities.

Ship Tip

It's a lovely ship, but people thinking about cruising on her should be comfortable around loads of people and not mind the extensive smoking areas.

Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand

4 out of 5
We were here for 2 days. Did Bangkok on our own on the first day, which was great, but very disappointed with the Pattaya temple and market trip on the second. Too many people and a complete commercial rip off. In hindsight, we would have much more enjoyed getting a shuttle to Pattaya and spending time on our own, as it's a lovely beach town.

Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam

5 out of 5
We went in small group tour to the Cu Chi tunnels - no crowds and very memorable experience, including crawling through a short section of the tunnels.

Nha Trang, Vietnam

5 out of 5
Favourite excursion! Just my husband and I on pedicabs with a great guide through one of the local villages. Relaxed pace with plenty of opportunities to see and experience local crafts, shops etc.

Chan May (Hue), Vietnam

5 out of 5
Went to the ancient part of Hoi An - really enjoyed meandering through the streets and had a great lunch. Very hot and quite busy, but still a lovely experience. Overall a very enforceable
