Guests are free to dine at any of the F&B restaurants and bars onboard with different cuisines, such as Japanese, Chinese, Southeast Asian cuisines, etc.

 

Please present your Access Card when entering any restaurant for verification purposes.

Gala Dinners

Guests are advised to book early for their gala dinner seating in their choice of restaurant to avoid disappointment.

In the event of minor accidents, inconveniences and emergencies while at sea, there is a fully qualified physician and a team of nurses onboard. The clinic is open daily at the posted hours.

 

Emergency medical attention is available around the clock by contacting the Reception. Basic medicines are also available, but may require a doctor's prescription.

 

Shore Excursions

Our friendly crew at Reception or our Shore Excursion Counter will be happy to explain the different options available at each port of call. You may join one of our pre-arranged tours or opt to do something independently. As tour seats are limited it is best to pre-book your shore excursion

 

For shore visits, casual wear and comfortable walking shoes or sandals are recommended while suitable beachwear are ideal for island excursions. (Skimpy beachwear is inappropriate in Muslim countries).

 

Bring sports or gym attire if you are planning to play golf or tennis or have a workout.

 

During shore visits, however, it is wise to avoid consuming tap water or drinks with ice from street vendors.
