very happy with the ports, the care and service on the ship for the stateroom, dining room, shore excursion (took 4 of the ship's tours and 6 arranged privately through Cruise Critic) and all worked out well, all were pleasant, smooth. Reason for taking ship's tours was for the ones such as Bangkok that was very far from the port. The reason for taking private tours was combination of price, smaller groups and value for choices available. Embarkation and Disembarkation were both smooth (with possible exception of the slow Immigration procedure in Singapore). Hotel we stayed in both before and after the cruise (swissotel The Stamford) was excellent. Enjoyed Matt's zumba on sea days. Favourite experiences on shore were the Elephant ride in Koa Samoi and the trishaw ride for 45 minutes through the crazy busy streets of HCMC/Saigon. Walking for 40 minutes among the Thai Festival in Penang was an experience I will never forget All in all, a fantastic experience that we enjoyed immensely.
