Cruise itinerary

Day Port Due Depart
1-2 Fly from the UK
2 Cape Town
Cape Town
Cape Town is the 'Mother City' a cosmopolitan, vibrant city with stunning beaches and welcoming climate.
3 Mossel Bay
4 Indian Ocean - Cruising
5 Durban
Durban
Three-wheeled Tuk Tuk open cabs ply the Golden Mile, Durban’s palm-lined promenade. Restaurants and oriental bazaars like the Victoria Street Market are fragrant with spice and incense, all reminders that these shores look out over the Indian Ocean and exotic Asian destinations beyond. Follow the arts and crafts trail, go golfing or fishing, visit a crocodile farm or head inland to the game reserves of KwaZulu Natal, veldts that lead the eye to the craggy peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains.
6 Richards Bay
7 Maputo
Maputo
Five hundred years of Portuguese rule have left their mark on Mozambique’s capital while the scars of civil war 30 years ago thankfully go on healing. Street signs around Maputo still celebrate names like Mao, Marx and Lenin but the free market economy is gathering pace. Hotels such as the elegant Polana are back to their colonial best, street cafés serve up spicy peri-peri platters, bustling markets trade spectacular batiks and hand-crafted drums while the languid surf goes on teasing the sands of the Baia’s pristine beaches.
8-10 Indian Ocean - Cruising
11 Pointe Des Galettes
12 Port Louis, Mauritius
Port Louis, Mauritius
Attractions include the Caudan Waterfront, Port Louis Bazaar, the Mauritian Chinatown and the old Port Louis theatre. The capital has also three museums which are: the Mauritius Natural History Museum, the Blue Penny Museum and the Mauritius Stamp Museum. The biggest and oldest post office in Mauritius is found near the Caudan Waterfront.
13-16 Indian Ocean - Cruising
17 Male
Male
Many of the islands are uninhabited, and one third of the nation's population lives on the largest island, Male. When it comes to size Male' would perhaps count as one of the smallest capitals in the world. 
18 The Laccadive Sea - Cruising
19 Cochin, India
Cochin, India
The view of the harbour is immediately recognisable even if you have never cruised to this uniquely picturesque Indian port before. For the lines of fishing nets gracefully hanging down from bamboo frames along the waterfront have inspired artists and hotographers ever since this Chinese fishing style was imported into Indias Kerala region. It is a magical welcome to a mystical place, especially its old town - Fort Kochi (Cochin). This not only has a 16th century Portuguese-built church but a 17th century synagogue for the small community that still remains from the Jewish settlers who arrived 2,000 years ago.
20 Colombo, Sri Lanka
Colombo, Sri Lanka
Colombo is the largest city and former capital of Sri Lanka. It is located on the west coast of the island and adjacent to Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte, the capital. Colombo is a busy and vibrant city with a mixture of modern life and colonial buildings and ruins and a city population of 647,100.
21 Bay of Bengal - Cruising
22 Bay of Bengal - Cruising
23 Andaman Sea - Cruising
24-26 Rangoon - Overnight onboard
27 Andaman Sea - Cruising
28 Phuket
29 Penang
30 Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang)
Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang)
For Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur cruise ships must dock at the deepwater cruise port Kelang, which is 90 minutes drive away. This, though, is good news for cruise visitors because, along the way to the capital, you not only see the magnificent Salahuddin ‘Blue’ Mosque - the largest in southeast Asia with room for 16,000 worshippers - but also visit the Batu Caves where a stone staircase with 272 steps leads up to a Hindu Shrine. If you make the effort, you are rewarded with the company of scores of monkeys which live around the caves.
31-32 Singapore - Overnight onboard
Singapore - Overnight onboard
Singapore is a melting pot of people and cultures. Malay, Chinese, English and Tamil are official languages; Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Hinduism and Christianity are the major faiths. Ever fascinating, Singapore boasts diverse cultures, luxurious hotels, and some of the finest duty-free shopping in the world.

It was a really good cruise despite some strong winds. The food has to be amongst the best that I have had on a cruise ship. The staff were as usual very attentive and looked after us very well. The decor was excellent and the ship had only completed a refurbishment 2 weeks before. Fantastic. The entertainment was not up to standard; one of the speakers was poor and the other's subject matter was not of much interest. There needed to be more speakers particularly as we had 6 sea days. The guest entertainers lacked variety. The 2 who joined the ship half way through, one was a ventriloquist and the other a magician and OK for one performance but not 2.

End of October is not a time to do a fall cruise. 4 out of the 8 stops were cancelled due to various weather conditions and whilst this is not the cruise lines fault their response is. The line provided free drinks for 2 evenings to compensate passengers, as I had bought a premium drinks package this was of no benefit to me. When I asked at reception how I was to be compensated I was told " it was the luck of the draw" and I was not to receive anything! In relation to the cruise itself I found the selection of tours disappointing. The entertainment was acceptable and much better than 5 years ago when I last used oceania ( although this is not a high bar). Food is good and service is like most cruises, good in parts. Outside of the cruise you had provided accommodation and transfers all of which worked well except for the transfer from hotel in new York to cruise terminal. We had to wait one and a half hours make 4 phone calls and listen to excuse after excuse - very poor

Staff were wonderful, food lacked flavour and portions too big, the ship was tired and shabby in places repairs were poor But far the worst were the prices onboard drinks were extremely expensive, and the excursions were not only a rip off but were very poor for the money. Why should they charge gratuity on drinks on top of extortionate drink prices. Will never cruise with this Line again
