Itinerary: Singapore to Shanghai

We just finished our first cruise today. We enjoyed every moment fron Singapore to Shanghai. It would be difficult to fault the service on The Legend. The food is excellent in quantity and quality, the staff are friendly and helpful - every aspect of ship service runs like clockwork. The entertainment is superb and the whole package a real treat. We will be back! A couple of negatives just for balance. The Windjammer buffet does not have adequate seating so you can find yourself wondering around with a plate of hot food for twenty minutes wanting a table. When you get one you have to take turns in going to the buffet for fear of loosing it. The Romeo and Juliet restaurant is lovely but the food is not quite that good esp the steaks. Aussies like good steaks! We would prefer a completely non smoking cruise. The land based trips were all educational and enjoyable but why do they insist on calling jewlery and other shops- factories when they are clearly retail outlets. Overall this was a great vacation and good value, if we had had the sense to stay out of the casino it would have been even better. Always next time and there certainly will be a next time.

Always fresh and plentiful with loads of variety.

Was not like the picture but was adequate, a little musty smelling but OK. There's so much to do on this ship, you don't spend much time in the cabin.

Something for everybody.

This is up to personal choice. Shopping in Hong Kong is awesome. I had shirts made in 24 hours and the quality is super. Cambodia and Vietnam are both interesting especially if you want to see a million motorbikes all wanting to kill you!

We started in Singapore and sailed to Bangkok, we are frequent visitors to this city, but never from the sea before. Thence to Cambodia where we visited a fishing village. Take a few dollar bills for the beuatiful kids here. Next stop Vietnam, what a place and the driving....crazy death zone!!! Hong Kong and the ride to the peak - can't miss - and the Stanely Market shopping. Girls-you should see the dresses and silk. Finally Shanghai. The lights along the river are astonishing and....this is the only place where I've seen a man drop his pants and do a number two in a public streetside garden (maybe I've not been to the right places).

We will soon be home in Aussie and planning our second cruise, I'm sure it will be with the Caribbean Line again.
