This was our first cruise and in the middle of a short stay in Singapore and onward trip to Bali. First impressions of the boat was quite positive from dockside. Embarkation was ok and we were on board pretty quick. but once on board we were given no information about where we could go and when we could get our room, after some time i found a crew member who advised me the pool bar was open. so myself and my wife sat at the pool bar and had a drink whilst we waited information. after a few hours we were advised via tannoy, (which was very quiet) that the room was ready. we managed to find our room which was at the front of the boat and to be fair quite nice and clean even though the interior was identical to a 1980's caravan. We then tried to get some food, this was a disaster, no tables. poor food choice and poor food quality. we found a crew member about a table who tried to get us to sit with others on a table. This is not for me or my wife, i dont expect to pay for a cruise and be expected to sit at a table with people we dont know. This happened every day of the cruise and as a consequence of this both my wife and i at very little on board. Entertainment what can i say it was shocking and whoever the entertainments manager was should be sacked. We thougfht we would see a main show one night and awaited what we thought would be a quality show (from what we had been told by our friends) when the show was introduced we found out it was two mime artist. The standard and show was so poor we left after about 5 mins. The bands around the ship were ok, but have seen better in my local clubs. the best singer was a guest who sang with the band at pool side. The pool area was ok. clean and the pool bar and service stsff were really friendly and helpfull. so as a consequence we spent most of our time on board in that area. I became also fed up with the way RC were always trying to sell stuff and became very annoying throughout. All announcements i made in English were made by people whose first language was not English and we simply could not understand a word that wa said and as a result had to keep going to reception to find out about things. The cruise has the feel of being in an average all inclusive hotel in Benidorm and was a real disappointment. so all the hype we had read about was completely false. Overall it was very disappointed with the cruise. I am gald it was not longer and as it was our first has convinced both myself and my wife i will never set foot on a cruise ship again. A shame really as we both really wanted to enjoy and hoped it would be the focus of future holidays.

Short cruise out of and returning to Singapore.

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 2N 3206
Cabin was clean and tidy, it did however have the feel of the inside of a 1980's caravan. But quite large and clean. Bathroom was a bit tired and shower was tight . but over all adequate.
Deck 3 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins
