  1. Totally agree, we will endure debt for years but at least we have made every effort to look after our fellow Australians in this very trying times
  2. No posts on the Asia forum for over a week, most unusual. Has every one cancelled their cruises to that part of the world?
  3. Was a full page ad in the West Australian newspaper Travel Guide on Saturday 15 Feb, Verandas are $3,499 No it was not my "Imaginecruising" dream either!
  4. All inclusive Indian Ocean Odyssey with Silversea, 16 nights from Singapore to Mumbai Everything included on the ship. ie drinks gratuities, WIFI etc Includes flights, transfers and one night Hotel in Singapore Four nights in Yangoon and Colombo included within the cruise. Prices from $2,999 per person but departure is 28 February so you will need to get a move on

    Vietnam Visa

    You had better believe it CissyFuss, Not only does many cruise lines not know the charges their ships will charge for Visas, give incorrect information, Vietnam Consulates etc have been known to give false or misleading information as well regarding Visas. Princess is probably the worst of the bunch because they impose charges well above the norm to make extra from their passengers and have been doing so for years. According to our resident expert Expat Cruiser, Princess will charge you $USD33 (even though their cruise personaliser says $US56) and the cost of an EVisa is $USD25, for $8 per person extra I would let Princess organise the visa and cop the extra as a cost of cruising. Less hassles and you have to do nothing!

    Gardens by the bay are a must see and you probably need 2/3 hours to do it over. Yes you will see plants and flowers from all parts of the world as well as tropical plants Singapore and Asia are well know for
  8. All you need to do is scroll down the topics on this forum and you will find plenty of threads that will assist you to research your trip and provide the answers you seek

    Look out for the Ladyboys!
  10. There you go, take plenty of small notes as you will not get change
  11. Just change some Aussie $ to Dong, about what you think you may need for your stops, money changers everywhere, they even came on board our cruise ship a few years ago. Most places will take USD but not AU$, so Dong it is. JUst make sure you use up your Dong at the last stop, not worth taking home unless you are intending to use it to wallpaper your toilet walls. Cards are accepted at many restuarants and better shops so they can be used for larger purchases.
  12. You really need to confirm where your ship will dock. Often, The small ships can access Saigon via the river which means they will dock quite close to the city and you will not need to then stay overnight in a hotel. If you dock at Phu My then that is quite a different situation.
  13. You have missed the boat, 2012 sailed by seven years ago!
