We chose this cruise as several s places I had not been to. We enjoyed KL, and Pennang, and the shopping was good. I had been to Bali 18 times so knew my way around no problem, like my second home. Phuket I did not like as stinking hot, humid and dirty. No taxis were at the port as was advised. Only private drivers wanting a day fare, when we only wanted a quick look around,ended up with a non licensed car, trip into Robinsons departments store. Air con great and so was lunch cheap and tasty. Got a taxi back to the ship easily. Thailand the most disappointing part of the trip, and never again. The ship is tired, but very clean and the service was great. The main anytime dining options, 4 different however with same menu was ok. The buffet was great, so much selection and deserts to die for. I have never used the buffet ever before for evening meals on any other cruise, however it was superb. The entertainment was lacking as we were looking forward to the broadway shows, of which 2-3 only, the rest other entertainers. Overall a great cruise, and would recommend.
