The notice of the increase went out a couple of months back.

GD do not dock in Vietnam. They use tender boats.

I was told yes on the phone but my real experience was NO.
Yes - You pay SG$800 or deduct 800GP for a inside stateroom.
No - You cannot redeem a free cabin at the last min.
You need to wait till 30mins before the gate close to know if there are still available cabins.

I booked as a member and I heard Kevin Cheng will be performing after I booked the schedule.
I don't think my booking comes with concert tix, anyway, I don't like to watch concert.

HCM is 55km from Vung Tui town and another 10km to the port.

The feedback doesn't sound good to take taxi.
Shore excursion SGD100+ per pax, pretty sure none of my slot buddy wishes to travel with me to HCM city.

Depends on which day you travel, eg Friday departure the gate closes 19h30.
Approach manual checkin counter at 19h00 to check if there is available cabin. I don't think they will give discount.
Basically my experience told me that they don't even bother to entertain if you are not a casino high roller.
Do let us know if you intend to do last min checkin and tell us your experience.

Are the gratuity fees charged to each individual guest credit card or it’s being charged as a total sum per room?

Thanks.
