Azamara Journey

December 2016 - Azamara Journey to Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Nice Ship, Exotic Ports

We've been on Azamara before and we like the smaller ship experience. There are no crowds, it's easy to get around the ship, and the food is excellent. The entertainment is more cabaret style than big productions, but equally entertaining. The Journey was recently refurbished so everything looked new and in good condition. The entry level suite far surpasses any mini suite we've had on other cruise lines.

 

We went to Hong Kong, Viet Nam, Thailand and Singapore. The life styles there are very different than western countries. We visited a lot of Buddhist temples and shrines. The local food is also good to try, as long as you have someone with you that can help you choose wisely. English is also not commonly spoken in Viet Nam and Thailand so having a guide fluent in English can be helpful. Singapore and Hong Kong are large modern cities where English is spoken everywhere and it is easy to get around on your own.

Coral Princess

February 2016 - Coral Princess to Panama Canal, Central America

Not the best Princess experience we've had

The Coral Princess is a smaller, older ship and is showing its age. The casino, Princess theatre and Horizon cafe are small and can get crowded. On dolphin deck there were pipes leaking in the ceiling. I also felt that there was not as much entertainment during sea days or at night. On the plus side the food was excellent and in general the service was good.

Cruiser455's Tips

Hue (Da Nang), Vietnam - There's a lot of see and do in Da Nang and Hoi An. We used a private guide and were able to see everything we wanted to.
Hong Kong - Easy to get around on your own, but can be expensive.
Singapore - It was very hot and humid and it rained hard both days we were there. The subway (MRT) is very clean and easy to use. Marina Bay Botanical Gardens is amazing.
Ko Samui, Thailand - We went to a place to ride elephants through Azamara. We also saw a monkey and elephant demonstration. I didn't think the animals were being treat very well.
Azamara Journey Azamara Journey - Most passengers were in their 60's and 70's. They have no activities for small children.
Colon, Panama - We had no time to explore since we had an excursion into Panama City.
