Editor Reviews


+ Cabin rooms are very large, fully-furnished with modern facilities, and some have a private balcony.
+ There is a big surprise for dinner with a lotus dance show.
+ Activities during the journeys are well-organized and enjoyable.


- The Royal Lotus Suite with private balcony is above the engines which trigger excess noise and exhaust.
- The food quality is below average with limited selection.
- Some public areas are cramped and have poor AC.
- Free WIFI is spotty.

Bottom Line

O’Gallery Lotus cruise garners high praise from upper-class cruisers thanks to an array of luxurious cabins and suites and superior services.
