We booked in March for this cruise. My father and mother-in-laws have poor walking abilities and they do not enjoy flying. But they do want to see Vietnam so we booked this cruise which visit two Vietnam ports.
First of all, embarkation in Hong Kong is not great. Kai Tak Terminal is very busy because this ship and Dream Cruises are both embarking on the same day. The queues are very long. Fortunately because we have two elderly people among us we could join the special elderly queue for check-in.
Then the worst thing was the zig-zag bridge that connect the terminal with the ship. I completely fail to understand why this winding zig-zag bridge is necessary when a direct birdge (airport jet bridge) can do the same job!
Deck 8 Promenade view room. More roomy than I expected. The room was clean and tidy. Our attendant Iwayan opened the connecting door for us and my parents-in-law. But the doors are very heavy. Overall good room. Do remember to close your curtains because the people opposite can see you quite clearly.
Kai Tak is not a good terminal to get in or out of. The zig zag bridge between the terminal and the ship is a nightmare. Someone from Hong Kong should be fired for installing this piece of junk.
This is a tender port and we had to wait till all the RCCL VIPs have gone ashore for our turn. When we got back the queue for tender was rather messy. Nha Trang is a nice holiday location enough.
