We are grreat fans of TA cruises and, having attained Captain's Club top level on Celebrity, this was a natural for us. Check-in in N.Y.C. was an absolute breeze, we arrived at the pier, extremely conveniently located in mid-town Manhattan ... Read more

We boarded the Journey in Lisbon on October 10, 2011 for our first transatlantic cruise. We were a bit hesitant to embark on this type of voyage before. No ports of call, open ocean, and small ship all added to our anxiety. This was one ... Read more

To criticise this cruise would be difficult. It was the third Azamara crossing and the sixth transatlantic. They really have it right, my only concern is that it is too much of a bargain to last at the prices we paid. The Journey, ... Read more

This ship is not comfortable for a trans Atlantic crossing. Compared to last year's crossing on the Solstice this one required my wife to take to our room and was like a cork in the ocean and add this to the extra 2 days to get to the ... Read more

Our first cruise was with HAL nearly 20 years ago. Our experience was so positive that we remained exclusively loyal to them for many years & many cruises. We only strayed to take specialty cruises on expedition ships or traditional ... Read more

It was our 15th Cruise and simply the best. The size of the Ship is perfect. The numbers of Guests make ship very personal and easier for the crew to pamper all of them. It need a short time to feel like in a big family ( in a luxury way ... Read more
