We chose this cruise for the itinerary and an opportunity to try Azamara. We were very satisfied with everything aboard ship. As suite passengers we had free access to the premium dining venues. Prime C was excellent and would have been worth the upcharge non-suite passengers paid. The other venue was hit or miss. Cabin and dining service were everything one could ask for. Entertainment we felt was a strong point. We've experienced the 'shows' on larger ships and been underwhelmed. Azamara's individual performers (esp. singers) were excellent. We enjoyed the White Night. It's a nice extra. The Azamazing (sp?) evening concert was much appreciated by the Ozzies on board but most of us North Americans didn't know the band. I took the 'behind the scenes' tour of the ship and heartily recommend it to anyone interested in what the crew does to make our trip pleasurable. We used private tours arranged by RCCL for Bali and Semarang as one of us uses a wheelchair. We cannot say enough about their efforts and those of the on-board staff to accommodate our needs. Tours: Bali and Komodo Island were fascinating and highlights of the itinerary. Semarang and Surabaya, not so much. Thursday island really isn't worth a stop but Darwin has much to offer. Cairns and Singapore were great start and end points. We've already booked our next cruise on Azamara. Read Less

We chose this cruise to explore the Cape and Arnhem Land. Unfortunately Cyclone Nora decided to have the owners and captain make the decision to cancel the cruise at Horn Island. They are to be congratulated in the way this was done and the way in which they got everyone safely back to Cairns. If we had continued we would have been right in the path of Cyclone Nora and who knows what would have happened. We were offered half the cost of our cruise back or could choose a free cruise from 5 options. We love Expeditions 1 and will be boarding her again in Darwin in October to do our cruise in reverse hence seeing Arnhem Land plus have the opportunity to again explore the coastline and islands from the tip of Australia back to Cairns. Captain and Crew were all excellent and we look forward to cruising with them again. Read Less
