hasn't cruising changed since the sailing ships. those were the brave conquring heroes that sailed on those ships who had no suites, baths, comfy beds or buffet food to speak of. And we have something to complain about?

Among the many museums in Melacca (or just around the Dutch Square are), this is a good one perhaps second only to the Stadhuys museum -- if you are a museum lover like us. The replica of an ancient ship itself is quite unique, and...More

As an old merchant seaman this was a 'must see' attraction for me. The cost of going around the Flora de la Mar and the Maritime Museum across the road was very, very reasonable. There are lots of steps to gain access to the ship...More

We've stayed at Hallmark Crown. But since we both love to walk, we simply walk to it. But u can find a hotel near to Dataran Pahlawan area. I bet it much closer compared to ours. 😊
