Itinerary: Spice of Southeast Asia

The itinerary was Singapore-at sea-Phuket-Lankawi-Port Kelang-Singapore. The sights were wonderful the endless ocean and the sunset.

We had the first seating dinning at six o'clock there is another seating at 8:30. The food in the Romeo and Juliet Restaurant was excellent it was three course. They changed the menu every evening. Every evening I ate fish as the main course and it tasted delicious. As a starter you could have fine cheese and even crab. Mostly I had an ice cream for dessert and on Christmas Eve the waiter of my table gave me a chocolate cake also. Which would normally not be possible.
However in the Windjammer Cafe the food was not so good. We had room service one morning in our suite an d the food was appalling the bacon was totally burnt and the toast you could have used as a hammer because it was so hard. The juice on the cruise was from a concentrate because it was always very sweet and unnatural.

I had the soda fountain package which allowed you to drink as mach soft drinks you wanted it cost US$4 for age up to 17 per day and US$6 per day for 18 and above. One time at dinner you could see the spectacular sunset through the huge windows. the champagne bar is very exclusive and has good service.

I had the Royal suite on deck 8 it was 1020 square feet inside and it had a 155 square feet balcony. In the entrance there was marble flooring with bar area and mood lighting. Further inside there was a lounge are with two sofas and two arm chairs. There was also a dinning table with four chairs. The TV's were not LCD but were quite clear.
Next to the entrance was a small toilet with a bidet. Next to the small toilet there was an adjoining marble bathroom with a steam shower and a jetted tub.There were Gilchrist and some Amenities.
In The bedroom there was a king size bed and above the bed there was a domed ceiling with mood lighting. The bedroom also had an armchair and a TV with a DVD player and speakers aroud the room. In the living room there as a white colored player piano (a piano that plays itself) which I know how to use. There was only one disc inside the piano with old songs it was only on the last day that i found the others in the seat of the piano. The whole day there were noises from the trolleys from the restaurant above. Our suite attendant was very friendly. The picture n the bathroom was the original from 1995. the design of the suite was a little dated. Overall 75%.

I didn't do many activities and went only to the pool once in the five days of the cruise. They had lots of activities like rock climbing and they had a kids club for ages 12months to 17 years.

I enjoyed the show in the That's Entertainment theater. they had different shows every night. Once they had a magician which could do amazing card tricks

I went of the ship at Phuket and Lankawi. In Phuket we didn't go on a guided tour because we went there before. The ship was tendered at Patong bay and we took the shore excursion boat to a pier near the beach. the sand was as white as it always is there. however the water has tiny creatures (probably some sort of plankton) that bite you and it hurt's a lot so you can only stay in the water for a few minutes. In Lankawi we went on a Guided tour which was Island hopping quite literally if you sat at the front of the boat because the sea were quite choppy. We went to two islands at one of them we had to follow the steps over a small mountain to a lake at the lake you could swim but I didn't instead I drove a solar powered boat with my mum and dad. There was also another island with a beach but it had lots of shrubs and twigs in the sand and there were lots of rocks in the water.

Recommend that you go to the Romeo And Juliet restaurant. And remember if you don't stay in a grand suite or above you need to take your own shampoo and conditioner.

if you book a grand suite or owner suite try and book the one which is furthest from the front of the ship because of the noise from the trolleys from the Windjammer cafe above on deck 9.

The furniture is quite dated on the ship the sofas in the public areas are very old.

If you have a grand suite, owner suite or royal suite you get complimentary champange and a fruit basket.
