Georgie was excellent in looking into what we asked and at keeping us informed.

Cannot get downloads that require completion. Requested help but nothing

Would like hard copies of everything instead of by email because cannot get or complete important downloads. These forms are required to fill in passport details/visa requests/concerning wi-fi/lg into Cruise Personaliser. I hope you can help.

  • Day 6

    Kuching, Malaysia

    21 Jan 2019

    The port of Kuching lies in the western part of Sarawak, known as the land of the hornbill. Sarawak is the largest state in Malaysia, covering an area of 48,737 square miles in northwest Borneo. The history of Sarawak as a state began in the 1840s when the English adventurer James Brooke helped to crush disturbances during the Brunei rule over what is now Kuching. Brooke was installed as the Rajah to reign over the territory from Tanjung Datu to the Samarahan River, followed by his nephew, Charles Brooke, in 1868. Charles Brooke ruled until 1917 and was succeeded by his son, Charles Vyner Brooke. As the third White Rajah, he enacted a new constitution in 1941, establishing self-government for Sarawak. This initial effort for political independence was nullified by the 1942 Japanese invasion of Borneo. In 1946, after the Japanese surrender, the Rajah and his council voted to cede the country to the British Crown. In 1963, Sarawak, together with Sabah, Singapore and the Federation of Malaya, joined the Federation of Malaysia. Kuching escaped bombing in World War II and has retained much of its old charm. It is by far the largest city in the state of Sarawak. Kuching is divided by the Sarawak River; the south is a commercial and residential area dominated by Chinese while the north shore is predominantly Malay, characterized by old kampong houses lining the river. The recently renovated riverfront area provides a pleasant area for strolling, dining and taking boat rides. The ship will be docked at the Port of Senari, a distance of 11 miles from Kuching city.

  • Day 8

    Muara, Brunei

    23 Jan 2019

    The microscopic Sultanate of Brunei lays claim to one of the most dramatic rags-to-riches stories.Thanks to oil, the Sultan of Brunei is one of the richest men in the world, and the Sultanate is often dubbed a Shell-fare-state. Brunei's citizens do not pay income tax; they enjoy free education, medical care and old-age pensions. The government employs a third of the workforce, who are probably the best-paid bureaucrats in the world. Brunei Darussalam, as the country is officially called, is the rump of what was once a sprawling empire that occupied a land area of about twice the size of Luxembourg. On January 1, 1984, after nearly 100 years as a British Protectorate, Brunei became a fully independent sovereign nation. In August of 1967, Hassanal Bolkiah was crowned the 29th Sultan of Brunei. He succeeded his father, Sir Omar Ali Saifuddien III, who started to modernize the capital and is known as the architect of modern Brunei. Bandar Seri Begawan is the capital and the only town of any size in the country. It is a neat, modern city, split into three main areas. The “old” sector, built in the 1950s, is being redeveloped with new buildings around the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque; the Seri Complex, a commercial area dates from the 1970s, and Gadong boasts a recently shopping center and numerous restaurants. Bandar or, simply BSB, as the capital is commonly called, still features a sprawling maze of wooden houses built on stilts along the Brunei River. Its residents, the Kampong Ayer, have retained their traditional lifestyle despite all the trimmings of capitalism. They provide one of the more interesting elements in an otherwise modern city.

  • Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

    Day 9

    Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

    24 Jan 2019

    Kota Kinabalu, the state capital of Sabah, is a relatively new town; the original one was destroyed during World War II. Strung out along the coast with jungle-clad hills as a backdrop, Kota Kinabalu, or KK for short, is home to a population of about 300,000. It was known as Jesselton before the war. The state of Sabah occupies the northern part of Borneo and is about the size of Ireland. After World War II, the British declared Sabah a Crown Colony. In 1963, Sabah gained her independence and joined the Federation of Malaysia. The old seafarer's name for Sabah was “Land Below the Wind,” referring to the state's location just below the typhoon belt. Kota Kinabalu's deep-water harbor gave the town strategic significance, evoking a Japanese invasion in 1942 and heavy bombing by the Allies. Following the war, the capital was moved from Sandakan to Jesselton and renamed Kota Kinabalu after the mountain. The pride of Sabah is Mount Kinabalu. With 13,431 feet, this is the highest mountain in Malaysia and a spectacular sight. For centuries, the Dusuns, Sabah's largest ethnic group, regarded the mountain as the final resting place of their departed. High priests still perform annual rites to appease the spirits.

  • Sandakan, Borneo

    Day 10

    Sandakan, Borneo

    25 Jan 2019

    The town of Sandakan, once claimed to have the greatest concentration of millionaires anywhere in the world during its heyday as a timber centre, began on its present site in 1879, after an earlier settlement accidentally burned down. The region had been known for centuries for its pearls, camphor, bee's wax, sea cucumbers and edible birds' nests. This attracted traders from the nearby Sulu sultanate and from as far away as China.

    Manila, Philippines

    30 Jan 2019

    The city sprawls eastward from Manila Bay. Its streets range from multi-lane boulevards to maze-like alleys. In this metropolis of 12 million, the contrast between spacious well-maintained elite communities like Forbes Park and overcrowded slum areas such as Tondo is immense. Occupied over the decades by the Spanish, Americans, British and Japanese, East now meets West, giving the city its unique character. The Walled City, a medieval fortified town, was the heart and soul of the country for more than 300 years. This city fortress, surrounded by moats and turreted walls 30 feet thick, was known as Intramuros. Only members of the Castilian upper class, friars, soldiers and government administrators were privileged to live inside the walls; natives had to live in the outlying boroughs.
