    This is informative. I’m booking my first Alaskan cruise tonight for next August. 


    Enjoy your cruise! 


    We went on our Alaska Cruise in 2012 and still have fond memories of it! 


    Planning for a revisit in the next few years..☺

    From the New York Times Travel Section in late October, they had this headline: “36 Hours in Singapore”  with this sub headline: "Yes, there are futuristic mega malls and skyscrapers. But you’ll also find a rich cultural heritage reflected in traditional temples and shrines, street food and homegrown art."


    Here are some more of their story highlights: “Singapore’s main island is sometimes described as diamond-shaped — fitting, perhaps, since the sparkling city, which had a starring role in the movie 'Crazy Rich Asians,' is known for its materialistic pursuits. But look past Singapore’s shiny veneer and you’ll find a compression of Chinese, Indian, Malay and other heritages reaching back far beyond the city state’s half-century history as an independent nation. And thanks to the superb street food and efficient public transit, you don’t have to be crazy rich to enjoy this cinematic city, which is now more accessible than ever with Singapore Airlines’ new nonstop service from Newark.”.


    As detailed below, we were able to do Hong Kong and much in SE Asia earlier this year.  We have been to Australia and New Zealand earlier.  We want to make it to Singapore, but we have not yet been able to finalize that timing.  From this profile and what others have shared, it is definitely on our top priority, future to-do list.  Feel free to offer your reactions, ideas, tips, suggestions, etc.  In this article, there are a number of ideas for places to dine, drink, involving in culture activities, etc.  Also interesting pictures, maps, etc., are included.

    Thanks for your info. I've played conservatively and we're not flying until 4pm, so lots of time at Singapore Airport I suppose, which is OK because it's pretty nice as an airport, and I know where the staff get their meals...


    7am disembarkation and 4pm flight is totally fine! ☺ 


    From 🇸🇬 with love.

    Are the production shows offered twice or three times during the evening?  How long do the shows last?


    I have received conflicting information about both of my questions.  As an anytime diner and one who also wants to experience the main entertainment on Royal Princess, I am trying to plan when I ought to try to have dinner when these shows are presented.


    Normally 2 time slots for the day. 


    Typically the show last around 45 minutes. ☺
