Asia is about as local as it gets to Australia and we enjoy the region so this cruise provided a good option for us. Had travelled on a smaller ship in the past (Silver Whisper) and enjoyed the experience plus like the idea of all inclusive. Ship boarding was painless and quick. Disembarkation for shore excursions was well organised and painless, as was final disembarkation. Journey had a recent refit so all areas were very nicely presented and we enjoyed the ship. Weather was not so kind to us, which puts a bit of a strain on facilities when going on deck is not an option, but no real hassle and meant we got to talk to more people than we probably would have - seemed a very nice group of people onboard. Shame the White Night and Opera under the Stars had to be cancelled due weather as I am sure they would have been great, but can't blame the ship for bad weather. Considering it is a small ship the entertainment was excellent. The small song and dance group were very good, better than some seen on larger ships. We were lucky enough to have Briona Daugherty onboard, a very versatile singer and her night at the opera was outstanding. Comedian/magician a bit average, but our experience is these acts tend to be a bit hit or miss. Eric the cruise director is also a talented entertainer in his own right and his shows are not to be missed - Azamara is lucky to have permanent staff like Eric. As you would expect, the gym is small and can get a bit crowded at times. The menus in the main restaurant (Discoveries) were spectacular but the food did not always live up to the promise, although generally good. Buffet was good. Prime C and Aqualina were outstanding and would rate as 5+, well worth the supplement. Chef's Table also provided a very nice experience. Overall rating is a balance of the main and supplemental options. Wine and alcohol are included but with upgrade options available. These can be purchased any time during the cruise. Included are 2 white, 2 red, a bubbly and Rose on offer each day and changed on a daily basis. Wines are from all around the world. We were going to upgrade to a wine package but enjoyed the daily wines well enough and didn't bother. Stewards were always happy to let you try the wine before selecting. The crew were great with the majority coming over as genuinely friendly and helpful. Shore excursions were by far the most expensive we have seen (and the basis of our rating) but well run and we enjoyed them - the bicycle tour in Ho Chi Minh is not for the feint hearted! Shuttles were provided at all ports and were convenient. A big advantage is the ability of the ship to dock 'downtown' in places like Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh. Enjoyed the Hanoi tour but be warned the advertised 3.5 hour transit from Halong Bay is more like 4.5, which reduces time in Hanoi, and the drive back was a bit painful. Hanoi itself was great. I think they would be better having an overnight at Danang, which provides access to Hue and Hoi An, and just a day stop in Halong Bay (where the cave is not to be missed), others might disagree. Azamara seem to sit somewhere between the regular cruise lines and those such as Silver Seas. They are are more expensive than the regular cruise lines but you do have inclusive wine and spirits, no additional charges or tips, the staff were great, the ship seems to attract a nice group of people, and in most ports is conveniently located close to the action. If an attractive itinerary comes up we would travel with them again. Read Less

We are seasoned cruisers and after an extraordinary Silverseas Cruise to the Galapagos in March we wanted to try their more mainstream cruise style. CHECK-IN The check in was seamless, there were more than enough staff to process everyone without delay. A great opening memory. BUTLER Since we had bulters on other cruises (Oceania) we were prepared on how to use their services and Albert lived up to our expectations. He was available within minutes of our request for service. He exceeded delivery for room service, made and cancelled reservations without hesitation and kept the refrigerator and ice bucket filled. It felt like he was our own private butler even though we knew that he served more than our suite. DINING The Restaurant (yes, that's the name of the main dining room is called the restaurant) delivered impeccable service. The menu selection was robust and regardless of breakfast, lunch or dinner the service levels remained high. FORMAL NIGHTS There were 2 formal nights during our trip and those of us who did not want to dress up had little choices as to where we could go and eat/drink. This was probably one of the negatives of Silversea. In addition to 2 formal nights, all but 2 evenings informal meaning that jackets were required for men and dresses/pantsuits for women. The average temperature in Asia was 90 degrees so dressing up seemed overkill and antiquated. This was a disappointment of the trip. LA TERRAZZA This venue was used during the day for lunch and breakfast with outside seating available BUT in the evening they shut off the outside deck, pulled the blinds and transformed the restaurant into an Italian Restaurant. I would have preferred to have the option to eat on the outside deck. Oceania Cruises does have that option which is a plus for Oceania. SHORE EXCURSIONS Many of the shore excursions were part of the price of the cruise. However, there were two paid evening excursions that included local entertainment and dinner. THEY WERE SPECTACULAR! LOGO WEAR A major disappointment was the lack of anything with a Silversea logo on it. No shirt, no baseball cap, no water bottles, nothing. When asked, we were told that others have also requested it but "Corporate didn't believe in it." To bad, a great marketing opportunity that they chose not to use. WOULD WE GO AGAIN? Possibly...I liked the small ship, the service but formal nights and no baseball cap has us looking at other options too. Read Less

I took this 7-night cruise Hong Kong-China-Vietnam and it was a most pleasant trip. I have cruised on Star Cruises many times but this cruise is different. Ever innovative (Star Cruises pioneered the freestyle cruising concept, NCL, previously owned by them, is only a follower) but now they are doing non-inclusive meals instead. The idea is not cutting back but it gives cruisers even better free choice. Yes, everything is priced now, but they give each passenger an onboard credit that you can spend what you will, on food, excursions, and purchases. The normally inclusive meals are now priced very reasonably, so that even if you take meals as if inclusive, you may come to spend less than your daily allowance of HKD280 a day. And great that, under a new Executive Chef, the food quality and presentation is improved too. This allowance is for all passengers, but those booking a Balcony cabin or a Suite are further given a set of vouchers good for discount, free meals and drinks. Balcony passenger can order continental breakfast delivered free. The entertainment is the best, not only one of the best, and production shows are large scaled with more dancers and entertainers on stage even than onboard a ship double the tonnage. The ship seems old but refurbished and well-maintained. Because of the new F&B system, people no longer congested in the 'free' outlets but now spread out in the some 10 eating outlets that includes Japanese, Italian, Indian, Southeast Asian and of course Chinese and continental European. There are offering of dishes from well-known Hong Kong Michelin-starred restaurants too. With the choices where to eat, this is a real gourmet cruise not priced at gourmet level. The HKD125 lobster dish is a steal. It turned out to be a more enjoyable and carefree cruise than what I have recently enjoyed on other cruise lines. The trip visits Shekow (Shenzhen) where most passengers embark, then visited Ho Chi Ming City and Nha Thang, both interesting ports but far from the pier. My allowance was adequate to cover the normal food expenses as well as the bus transport. Highly recommended, although sea may be rough in winter. I look forward to their new itinerary from March, from Hong Kong to Kaoshiung (Taiwan) and Manila. Although I do not award a 5-star to this trip, it certainly is 4-star plus and plus trip and I have an experience that exceeds my expectation. Read Less

We chose this cruise as it went to some interesting places which we would not otherwise have traveled to such as Taiwan and Cambodia and also because my husband had been to Vietnam but I had not. Unfortunately due to Azipod problems on the ship our itinerary was modified and we only got to visit Chan May and Phy My in Vietnam and Laem Chabang in Thailand but received a generous discount in lieu of this. Overall the cruise was good. Embarkation was a bit of a shambles. We had arrived early in the morning so had to wait for check-in at 11am which was fine as we had expected this. Check-in went smoothly however once checked in we could not board the ship as it was not ready. This resulted in a significant amount of people all waiting to board and although we had been given numbered sections to board by many people disregarded this and the ground staff did not enforce it well. I would have been happier to wait a bit longer for check-in to open if we could have walked straight from there to boarding thus eliminating the long queues at security. Once on board the staff looked after us well. The service in the restaurants was great and cabin service was also excellent. Food in the complimentary restaurants was a little bland for us but that is to be expected with so many tastes to accommodate. We didn't try any of the specialist restaurants as the variety in the main dining rooms suited us. The layout of the ship is different to others we have been on and one disappointment was that there was no lounge at the front of the ship where you could relax and have a view outside but the lounges and bars were good and well placed around the ship. The entertainment on the ship was excellent and we attended most of the shows. Good variety of acts and also good variety of entertainment in the bars. Of note were the two ladies playing the violin and cello in lounges around the ship who were exceptional. Pools were nice with our favourite being the spa pool situated up the front of the ship giving you a view of where you were going. Main pool was a bit cold for us but we did venture in on one day which was particularly hot. As mentioned earlier we only got to three ports. Something to note with this itinerary (in particular our three ports) is that the boat docks a long way from the city at industrial ports so there is nothing at or close to the port to look at. Ho Chi Minh and Bangkok are both 2 hours drive from the port. We booked a tour of Hoi An which gave us some time to ourselves and we enjoyed looking around the old town and markets. We also booked 'on your own' tours of Ho Chi Minh and Bangkok which gave us 5-6 hours in each city to look around. Shore excursions were easy to book and you were off and onto the buses reasonably efficiently. Overall we really enjoyed it despite the missed ports and extra days at sea. Read Less

This was the third cruise we have taken aboard the Norwegian Star. We like its relatively smaller size compared to newer ships. Engine problems that occurred during the cruise prior to ours forced the cancellation of stops in Taiwan, Hanoi, Cambodia, and one of two ports in Thailand, because the ship had to sail more slowly than normal. Norwegian offered a 50% refund of the base price and a 50% credit on a future cruise (if taken in the next twelve months). The extra days at sea were relaxing and the weather was great throughout the cruise. Service was excellent as always and the crew very pleasant. Although disappointing that we didn't see everything that was originally scheduled, we enjoyed spending a few days prior to embarkation in Hong Kong and a few days after the cruise in Singapore. We like cruising on Norwegian and look forward to our next cruise with them. Read Less

We chose this cruise because of the great ports it was to visit. There was to be 4 ports we had not been to and this was a winner for us. So excited NCL coming to Australia on a more regular basis.Unfortunately the ship had Azipod problems and the 4 ports that we were looking forward to were all cancelled which was disappointing but NCL more then fairly compensated passengers and we still had a great holiday. The mood amongst some of the other passengers was a bit negative which was painful. The staff overall were fantastic, very friendly and always obliging.The food at all venues was as good as any other cruise we have been on (24) Enjoyed the entertainment and thought the production group was excellent. Our cabin steward was amazing...He looked after like us royalty and made our holiday that much more special. A special mention to the Cruise Next Specialist Sherry.She was inundated with passengers trying to sort out their next cruise to use the 50% credit and made her self available more then would be expected. She was very helpful with our questions and gave us the correct information when the chinese whispers were running wild through the ship. Read Less

First time wth NCL, but done many cruises before. Not a good start with the azipod issue and went from 7 ports to only 3. Extremely disappointing especially as we did not go to the ports we all really wanted to go to. However, we decided to go ahead with the cruise and glad we did. The ship itself is old and creaky especially at night when trying to sleep, but it is still beautiful and has many lovely areas. Cabins. Had a balcony cabin and it had everything we needed. Quite small compared to some cabins we have had but it was fine and very clean. Entertainment. Fantastic shows by the entertainment team, some of the best we have ever seen on a ship. Plenty of different bands and singers to suit most tastes. Great NYE party on deck. Only thing missing was some comedy and perhaps a piano entertainer. Staff. Very friendly staff. However did not find guest services helpful nor the shore excursion staff who told me different things about the refunds for our excursions that were cancelled. Still have not got my money back now !! Ports. Did Hue which was fine, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh, the latter two were excellent. Food. Brillant food in the dining room, the Brazilian restaurant and the buffet. Osheehans was ok. Good things about NCL. There are a few things that NCL do really well and we really liked compared to other cruise lines. E.g.-loved 'washy washy' -made you want to wash your hands ! Like the layout out of the market cafe, easy to navigate, plenty of tables and liked that there was cutlery and sauce on the tables ready for you. Also liked the BBQs on sea days and the paella and seafood on offer then too. Not so good things about NCL. - should stop guests entering the theatre when the shows have started. Having a constant stream of people arriving late and interrupting your viewing is annoying and rude and should not happen. The safety drill was shocking. I have never seen anything like it. Half the boat did not bother doing it and they allowed movement on and off the ship whilst it happened. We were on the deck and everyone was talking and we could not hear or see the demonstration. Very very poor. Shore excursions - first ship I have been on where they do excursions by putting everyone in the theatre and then you have to get your sticker on the way out. We had a delay on one exursion as we all had to wait for all the buses, if they did it the normal way by numbering you with your bus as you went in, it would be more effective and quicker. Just a suggestion! The salon, had my hair cut and not only was it the most expensive haircut of my life at $90 but was the worst. Looks like it has been hacked to pieces. Never again. Overall a good cruise although I'm still awaiting for my shore excursion refund and my refund for half the cruise back as promised. I hope the delay in this and the poor communication I have received so far from NCL, will not damper too much my thoughts on what was, a good cruise despite the itinary changes. Read Less

After reading some bad reviews of Millie, we were a bit concerned about the experience we would have. However, for us, all was well. The cabin 7014 was well placed at the end away from noise an bustle, cabin steward Patrick was efficient and friendly. In fact, all the crew went out the way to smile and say hello. The food in the main dining room (we had anytime dining) was very good and we could not fault it. Our waiter Rey was in a class of his own, nothing was too much trouble for him. Did not go on any of the cruiseline excursions but instead, did our own thing or booked ahead with outside agents. The tours the cruise line offered were at least double the amount of money we paid for the same itinerary.We were not hassled to upgrade (which we had read in some of the reviews before boarding the ship) and so all in all we had a very nice time. Cruise ports were a long way from the main attractions in a few of the ports; however, we knew that before boarding so it was not a surprise to have to travel two hours from the port into Saigon or Hue. The entertainment was top notch and we thoroughly enjoyed the variety of the different shows. We did not think that there should have been smoking allowed on one side of Deck 10 as people had to walk past there on the way to the buffet. Smoking should have been allowed far away from any general area. Read Less

This cruise was chosen by my 16 year old as her birthday present. We had heard Celebrity was a good cruise line with a nice mix of young and older without being too geared one way or the other. We were not happy with most of the crew but the cabin steward was fabulous. Guest relations could use some work they only had one person in that department worth speaking to. My daughter enjoyed the teen club and the staff in there. The pool and public area were good. Getting off the boat at some ports was cumbersome, but all in all it was well worth it. Embarking was easy and fast, I think it would have been helpful to have clear instructions for all passengers, as we knew our room wouldn't be ready, others were not aware and it was confusing for them. We used select dining and it was perfect, as we typically eat at off times. Read Less

We went on this cruise as we had missed calling in Vietnam on an earlier cruise this year, when we were on the Quest. We loved the refurbishment on the Journey and yes the bathrooms are still small etc but you don't spend a lot of time in the bathroom. Embarkation in Hong Kong was very smooth and quick, after a welcome champagne our stateroom was ready and the luggage arrived promptly. Sailing out of Hong Kong harbour at night was a spectacular sight the nightly laser light show was happening as we sailed. We had all our meals in Discoveries restaurant and thought the food was excellent, portion sizes were great and lots of variety each night, drink service was excellent with a choice of 2 red and 2 white wines each day. A couple of highlights for us was the 'White Night' and the Aazmazing Evening in Bangkok, for the Aazmazing evening were bussed from the ship to a beautiful setting in the ancient city. One thing we really like is Azamara's attention to hygiene, each entry to any dining area is staffed at the hand hygiene station and you have to sanitise. Another nice touch is that when you return to the ship, every staff member you meet will give you a warm "welcome home" and it does feel like coming home. All in all a great cruise. Read Less

We arrived in HK 5 days earlier visiting friends and staying in a hotel in Kowloon not far from Harbour City Cruise Terminal. Our 13nt cruise then commenced with a quick embarkation in HK. As we had a late check-out included with our hotel room rate, we decided to leave for the port around 2pm, the first taxi driver shrugged his shoulders when I verbally asked him for transport to the port, even the concierge at the hotel tried communicating with the driver. The concierge then ran around the corner from the hotel and within a couple of minutes a replacement taxi was found, by this time I had found directions/address in Chinese that Azamara had supplied. The taxi took us straight to dockside and to the luggage drop point where porters were waiting. We then put our luggage through the scanners and exited this area into the shopping centre! There were port staff with signage and ten minutes later we were boarding the ship and check-in was in the cabaret lounge complete with sparkling wine. Staterooms: We were in V2 (7089). We haven’t sailed with Azamara since the refurbishment. I liked the colour scheme overall throughout the ship. However, on looking more closely at our room, the fascia on the wardrobe doors were peeling away, the seal in the bottom of the shower was discoloured (this was later replaced mid-cruise throughout these rooms) and the veranda appeared in poor condition around the metal work where the balcony divider was, drain area and pipes above. Our room had a solid metal divide between our cabin and 7091. This was great for noise insulation and privacy. I would not hesitate in booking this room again. Further down the corridor toward 7095 the stewards parked their trolley all day and appeared to work from this point. Also in this area, beyond the firedoor on the corridor (left open) there was a loud drone when we were under way. We could not hear it in our room at all. The bathroom is as small as ever but overall the room had good facilities. The interative tv worked well. Improvements? Place soft close shutters on the stateroom doors, why is it other guests allow their doors to slam shut, if they just held the door back from slamming it would make everyone happy! Bedding... well the bottom sheet on our bed (two beds made into a king) drove us crazy. There wasn’t even a mattress protector and the sheet always came untucked and slid over the pillow top section of the mattress. Our cabin was overall clean. My main concern was on disembarkation day when we went up to breakfast at around 6.20am and upon returning just before 7am the steward had changed the bed linen and made up the bed and then placed our wet washbags, and smaller suitcase back on the clean duvet cover. During our stay, I had suffered from swollen ankles and grazed my leg. I had placed my feet up on the bolster and there were speckles of blood which were visible. The steward had not even changed the cover on the bolster cushion just placed it back on the bed, I turned it over and basically left it out for him to change before we left. During the time we were having breakfast he had cleaned the bathroom and removed the towels and also packed up our last minute toiletries for us on the sink surface! He had left the two face cloths which we had not used so we used this to dry our hands etc. I appreciate how tight changeover day is for the staff, however it wasn’t even 7am. Food and Drink: Great choice throughout of food and drink. The complimentary list could do with Baileys and Tia-Maria adding (love liquor coffees!) We bought these a couple of times. Some of the beef was very good indeed as was the lamb and fish. The deserts were mainly very, very good although the pastry on the deserts wasn’t that delicate, very often tough to cut. Great gelato and choice of flavours. Breakfast and lunch in Windows had a great choice and staff were always quick with drinks. We really enjoyed the Jazz Brunch in Discoveries too. We tend to drink sparkling water and for the first few days of the cruise the complimentary one was great (pink and blue bottle) with plenty of small bubbles, however as this was depleted the one supplied (dark blue writing on) was flat and had a poor taste. The helpful staff did try to locate some of the older stock for us to no avail. We ate in Prime C too, the Chateaubriand was superb. Highly recommended. We also ate a couple of evenings on The Patio, the food and service was brilliant and the restaurant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Deserts lacked choice but Windows adjacent had plenty. We also ate in Windows one evening, it was Greek night but feel it lacked atmosphere, the lighting was very harsh and wasn’t really what I remember from a previous cruise. Discoveries restaurant is so well run. After perusing the menu on the stateroom TV before we went down to eat were still always undecided what we were having as we found the choices very broad and appealing. Edward is one of the best waiters there! The only thing to improve here would be the choice of breads in the basket and the dips, it never changed during the cruise. The bread in Prime C was a good change though, and we ate too much of it when we ate there! The included wines were fine, some were not to our palates but we are easy drinkers. The included rose however was poor – very sweet and at 5% alcohol a poor choice for Azamara to supply. This rose never changed throughout the cruise. Entertainment: The shows are more cabaret rather than big production shows. We are in our 40’s and most of it did not appeal to us. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to Briona Daugherty singing opera upon the pool deck whilst we were docked in Halong Bay. Our seat for the evening was one of the bird cage seats upon deck 11. We both crammed ourselves into the seat and had a superb view of the concert. Her voice was superb. She was joined by Eric for the finale who also has an amazing voice. This was a very special evening and would have been worthy of a further concert during the cruise. We enjoyed Mel Mellers the magician but Beverley Davison did not appeal to us, she is a great violinist but her rapport with the audience was quite cringe worthy, she appeared to be requesting applause all the time. Other shows were watchable and passed the evening away. The demographics of the guests on board led to a very quiet ship after 10.30pm with barely anyone in the Living Room for dancing after this time. It really lacked atmosphere on an evening. The White Night Party on deck was great, however we ate in Discoveries with Edward being our server and had a great meal and superb service before going upto dance and observe! We did not attend the Azamazing evening as we had booked a private tour that did not return until 8.30pm. Itinerary: We are happy to have now visited this area of Asia, however, Vietnam is somewhere where we would probably not wish to return to. Hong Kong and Sinapore were superb. We had four sea days and we would not choose another cruise with so many, preferring a more port intensive cruise. Staying in HK before the cruise we visited friends in Sai Kung, a stunning area of HK, very scenic with superb walks and lovely small town atmosphere. We did a couple of days in the city itself as wells as visiting Lantau Island. In Vietnam on the first full day, we went on a nine hour cruise around Bai Tu Long Bay and Halong Bay with a great group of 10 we organised privately with CC. We used Indochina Junk, making a booking and payment is very easy. This worked very well and the itinerary worked very well for us. The second half day we took a taxi (negotiate, we paid $10 return) from the tender point up to the market hall where he waited for us. The wet market really is a wet market! The stalls are on rugs on the floor and compared to other markets is quite poor and dirty. My legs were splashed up with goodness knows what, I disinfected by shoes when we returned to ship. We also walked around the residential area by Bay Chai wharf. The houses are very interesting to see and the people friendly. DeNang Port: We booked the Countryside by Bicycle Tour and Hoi An through Azamara. This was a very good tour. Just 14 participated on the tour, so the numbers worked very well. We saw lots when cycling around the traffic free areas overlooking rice fields, residential area etc. Even seeing a water buffalo with her young calf, a couple plucking and washing ducks in the river, children going to school by boat and people working their crops etc. It stayed fine throughout the cycle tour. Hoi An was badly flooded so we did not see that much of the city unfortunately. Our guide was very good though and was very enthusiastic! The downside to ships tours is time spent shopping, this tour we visited the silk factory, although we did see the process of silk manufacturing and we also visited the marble workshop we would have all preferred to spend more time cycling. The included lunch at a riverside restaurant was very good. The venue was very light and airy and quite grand with lots of space and a view of the river in the unfortunate heavy rain we endured later in the day. We really enjoyed the company of the others guests during lunch. Ho Chi Min City: Many months before sailing I booked a private tour with a company again found on the internet called ‘Water Buffalo Tours’ . The guide we had called ‘Tang’ was superb, one of the best we had, he was witty, chatty and very caring. Look them up they are great! We never saw any other tourist for the day we spent with him and his driver. We visited a superb market, buying fruit to have with our lunch. He acted as a translator as the market stallholders were asking questions about us to him and vice versa! The driver had parked the van in a side street and the only way we could drive out was though the set up of a wedding, which had not quite started. It was quite comical! We then went cycling and enjoyed a lunch at a home of a local family. We really saw the real Vietnam. Later we went on a short boat trip of the Mekong Delta area. We even changed boat mid stream! A superb day one that we will never forget. In Bangkok we booked a lady called Pary Happy Tours, who is an independent guide I found on Trip Advisor. Her reviews are superb and I would use her again. The first half-day she met us at the terminal and we travelled in a luxurious van to Ayutthaya. The roads in BKK on a Sunday are relatively quiet and we made good time. We enjoyed a visit to a Buddhist Temple on the way, then visited a couple of archaeological sites, enjoyed a boat trip on the river and watched the sunset over Wat Chaiwattanarm before being taken to a lovely restaurant for the included dinner. She also bought us treats along the way. The driver was very caring with plenty of iced bottled water, cold wipes etc. The second full day in BKK, we used Pary again for tour of the city using public transport, she met us at the port with a taxi and took us around the temples and China Town before having a great lunch at the Thai Royal Navy Club close to the Grand Palace. There was a good mix of Thais and tourists eating here and we waited briefly for our order whilst the staff provided the food for the Buddist Monks who were eating in a section of the restaurant. Following lunch we took a Klong boat tour, seeing a couple of Monitor Lizards too! We also used a water bus, this is not for the faint hearted as the canal we were on was filthy, but Pary the caring person she is made sure we were sat right at the front to avoid getting splashed, she also dragged the canvas sides up around us too! The last half-day in BKK we used the Shuttle bus which took us to the Central World Plaza, they ran every 30mins. We walked and went shopping around the area, and took a tuk tuk (negotiate hard for a good price). Ko Samui: I had originally booked the Island Discovery Tour with Azamara, but we both felt that we had seen more than enough Buddha’s in BKK so 6.30pm the night before we hastily changed it to the 4x4 Eco Safari and elephant ride. I quizzed the LD rep on the desk before booking about the care of the elephants etc and was reassured about it. However, there appeared nothing Eco about the trip only the rainwater harvesting for flushing the toilets at the venue. It was a poor tour and very expensive. The 4X4 vehicles were never even taken off road and were poorly driven. The driver was on his mobile phone quite alot, he used one hand for steering the other permanently being on the gearstick. We also ran over a dog on the way back to port without stopping. The guide appeared quite monotone in her speaking and did not appear happy in her job. The ride to the elephant centre was about 30 mins up the main road from Nathon Pier. The centre is called the Namuang Safari Park (I wish I had had time to research it properly instead of hastily booking it –the reviews are terrible) the centre basically wants to extract as much money from you as possible, with a framed print of you on the elephant for around $10 (we did not to this) or a girl with a fishing net who you hand your camera to with some Baht for her to snap some photos of you on your elephant. They also heavily push for banana sales and then our elephant ‘driver’ upon returning to the debark point said’ Ok you give me good tip, 500 baht!! “ I quickly handed him 200 baht and scarpered, not even a thank you from him. The included lunch at the centre was poorly served, it was buffet and as it was raining there was insufficient seating for everyone, we were all sat amongst other groups, many were smoking too. On the journey back to Nathon Pier for the tender we called at the Coconut Farm and Rubber Farm, which was basically for the benefit of visiting tourists and both did not appear to be fully operational. Singapore: We stayed in Singapore for just one night. Departing on a late flight home on the 24th December which would arrive to the UK in the early hours of Christmas Day. Singapore is a stunning city, very clean and safe. The humidity was very uncomfortable, but we saw so much in the two full days that we were there. Taxis are cheap and efficient. Overall, we would choose to cruise with Azamara again. Mainly due to the fact of what is included for the fare paid, no signing for drinks etc. , With their ships being small the ease at which you can get on and off both when docked and on tender is superb with no queuing. The staff really are superb, how they do their job day in day out is unbelievable. All of them bid you good day when you see them around the ship and provide superb service which is genuine and caring. Loved relaxing in the Living Room. Read Less

This was my third curise with Azamara, all on this same ship. I enjoyed both of the cruises I had taken previously (as I have just about all of the nearly 30 cruises I’ve been on over the years) which is why I booked this cruise two years ago and a major reason for why I looked forward to it ever since booking. I must say that Azamara did not disappoint me and that I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is looking for an ocean cruise. The realitively small size of the ship allows it to go to ports that larger ships can’t and allows them to stay in those ports for longer periods; for example, the Journey was able to sail all the way into Bangkok, which Princess and other lines with larger ships cannot, and this allowed us to have two half-days and one full day to explore the city and surrounding areas, as compared to having to bus for hours each way and then pay for a hotel if an overnight or two was available. But that is not what makes an Azamara cruise special. It starts with the quality of the staff. From the wait staff to the stateroom attendants, the bar tenders to the casino staff, and all of the entertainment staff, the attention to detail, the respect, the friendliness, and the dedication to the cruisers’ comfort and enjoyment is always evident. These people are intelligent and demonstrate a sense of humor many cruise staffs do not. We only had a couple of bad experiences with the ship’s staff. The first involved the conceierge who was abrupt and rude when we tried to ask about transportation from the ship to our hotels when we hit Singapore; she cut us off before we finished the question and just said “Taxi”…no further information (cost, availability, do they take credit cards or American money, etc.). A dirth of information. The next bad experience is when my wife filled out an early survey and included a complaint about the movies on TV; the free movies were not being shown when scheduled and the “on-demand” movies were only available for a charge (unlike Princes and other cruise lines where on-demand movies are free in the staterooms). They called and, in a condescending voice, said that if we couldn’t work the movies we should ask a steward who could show us how. Really? How about getting someone who can actually read to review the surveys? The final bad experiences both involved Geeta of the Guest Relations department. The first of those experiences came when we had an issue with a charge for a service that was supposed to be complimentary. We brought the proof down to her and she said that we didn’t need it and it would be taken care of. Three days later the charge was still there so we brought the proof down and spoke with another Guest Relations person…the charge was reversed within a few hours. The other Geeta experience involved getting our passports prior to going on a private tour in Bangkok. We went down to get them at the time they were supposed to be ready, but she didn’t have them and told us to come back in 3 hours…didn’t take our names down, didn’t ask for our room numbers, didn’t offer to call us when they would be available. We came back some 6 hours later and she still didn’t have them, but she did have passports for people who had given her peers their room numbers and names. Evidently the port people were taking a long time to process the passports, but those who had a need to retrieve them could be expedited if they knew of the need. Needless to say we had to insist she take down our name and room number and, lo and behold, they were available bright and early the next morning. We had somehow lucked into an inexpensive room upgrade to one of their Continental Suites. The room is larger than the typical stateroom and the bathroom is comparatively luxurious. The suites come with an “English Butler” who brought sweets for tea, canapes for before meal munching, and a relative feast when we wanted a party for some friends. He helped with other items as well. The suite also provided for 235 minutes of free internet for each of us, as well as complimentary use of the specialty restaurants as much as we’d like to use them. I’m not sure the extras are necessarily worth the typical upcharge from a balcony stateroom, but it was worth much more than we paid for it. The food was phenomenal, although there were small areas which could see improvement. Neither I nor my wife eat pork and there was a great deal of it incorporated into the menus. There were always other choices, although not always very many. The ship offered daily wines (2 white, 2 red, and a rose) which cruisers could have anytime for free (and I use the term “free” loosely…its built into the overall price), as well as a number of higher quality wines for additional charges. I have a very narrow taste in wines and found only a few of them compatible with my palette; my wife has a more a broader, yet more discerning taste and typically found the daily choices quite acceptable if not outstanding. There always seemed to be vegetarian, gluten free, and lactose free options at each meal. We generally took dinner in the Discovery Restaurant (the main dining room). The food was exceptional and the staff friendly and efficient, if not always as quick as we’d like. More than once we had problems deciding what to eat there, but this wasn’t a good thing. As often as not I went with the Ceasar salad as none of the appetizer options seemed appetizing and the other salads and soups didn’t thrill, either. It was rarely difficult to choose which entre to have as typically only one or two appealed to me; too many pork dishes, vegetarian options, unknown sauces and ingredients and poor descriptions limited the choices substantially for me. The Windows Cafe (the buffet meal option) generally provided an array of options. We typically took breakfast there and found that only a few items changed from day to day. There were several types of eggs and you could get omelets made to order (with a choice of whole eggs, egg whites, and egg beaters). The remaining egg options were mass produced and laid out in trays, which caused them to be either too runny or too dry (in the case of the scrambled eggs, too tasteless). Pancakes, french toast, and waffles were also pre made and they came at best warm and more often cold. The options also included several types of bacon and sausage, but only twice had sausage options that weren’t pork (the lamb sausage was excellent but they only offered it once). Still, there was always lox and bagels, fruit, cheeses, and bakery goods…all of which were wonderful. The lunch menu changed more from day to day, with different meats at the carving stations, a daily pizza (along with the standard ones), two different soup choices, varying other entrees and salads. The hours sometimes seemed too short for lunch, particularly when morning tours ran a bit late; on those occasions not all of the options would be available and you wouldn’t be able to get back for a second pass; this caused the planners to overload their plates and take deserts with the first pass, wasting food and creating further shortages of options for those who followed. Each night they had a different theme for the dinner buffet. We only went for the White Night program (it was excellent in terms of choices and quality), so I can’t say from personal experience what they were like, but I didn’t hear too many complaints. The specialty restaurants were both elegant and worth the extra cost (if we had to pay it). We went to Aqualina one night and Prime C twice. Aqualina specialized in Italian food. The food was good but the options could have been more varied. Prime C is the steak house and it was awesome. They had steak, lamb, veal, and seafood selections all of which were mouth watering. There were also several themed “Chef Tables” where six-course fixed menu meals were prepared for the dozen or so patrons who signed up (at $95 per head…NOT included in the suite benefits), each with a special pairing of wine. The head chef and the somelier came out and explained each meal and the wine paired with it. We went to the California table and all who attended agreed that it was among the culinary experience of the cruise…by geometric measures. The evenings’ entertainment was typically good. We had seen some of the performances before, but they still entertained; the newer ones were better only in that we hadn’t seen them before. Eric DeGray, the cruise director, is a real talent and performed a solo show and with the 6 person cruise troupe. The band was sharp as was the solo guitarist who played the different venues around the ship. The casino was proportionally small but that didn’t really matter as less than a dozen people (or so it seemed) used it through out the cruise. Wong crowd, I suspect. We went on four of the cruise’s tours, the Azamazing Adventure, and two private tours. The private ones were MUCH better than the cruise tours, both in terms of the guides and the number of participants (a smaller crowd allowed for more flexibility in content and schedule, as well as interaction with the guide). The Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) highlight tours were both cruise tours and both horrid. They were too large, slowed by the least mobile participant, and included a shopping experience at a vendor who split profits with the tour operators. The Hanoi tour was burdened by a 3-4 hour bus ride each way from port to city, with a stop at a shopping location (presumably for a rest break) on each leg. The first real stop on the tour was at a hotel for lunch of mass produced “local” foods, followed by an extended walk around the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum and government houses…all of which were closed because it was a Monday. Next came a trip to a Bhudist temple that was overrun with other tourist groups. The last stop was at the Old Quarter where there was a brisk walk among the crowded shops and stalls, an adventure crossing the street to view a couple of sights, and then waiting for the bus to return to the ship. Other than the Old Quarter visit, which was the most interesting stop AND the shortest, the wasn’t much to see and too much time taken seeing it at the stops…with more interesting sights and photo ops pointed out from the moving bus along the way. The Saigon tour was only slightly better, but only because the drive from the port to the city was hours shorter. The water puppet show was entertaining, but the Buhdist temple wasn’t partcularly impressive or important, the visit to the government museum was mostly a waste, I didn’t even both with the history museum, the “photo op” of Notre Dame was less than spectacular, and the shopping opportunity at the laquer shop was a waste of time. The last of the Azamara tours we did was on Ko Samui and it was a bit better…we got to ride elephants in the pouring rain. The Azamara arranged cruises, like many of those arranged by the cruise ships, suffer from several problems that should be able to be overcome with a bit of effort and organization. The first is to reduce the size of the groups; its just not possible for one guide to properly service 30 or 40 people on a tour in any kind of efficient manner. Second, they should have special versions of the tours for those with physical disabilities. I think its great that there are people who don’t let their problems hold them back from living life to its fullest. At the same time, the need to move the group at a speed which they can manage lengthens each stop and prevents others from using their touring time to greatest advantage. Splitting the groups into this fashion would allow everyone to experience as much as possible. Third, they should not hire tour groups who add stops at overpriced “factories” just to try to relieve the tourists from their money. The goods are often inferior and always overpriced. Spending 45 minutes at such a place, and taking 15 minutes due to the need to get there and then back on the tour route robs the cruisers of an hour which could be used for experiencing the culture. Finally, find a way to incorporate more short photo-op stops at important sights rather then pointing them out on the fly. Those are the memories we cruise to make. We have never experienced any of those problems when we’ve been part of a private tour. Needless to say, we’ve decided to just go for private tours, organized with other guests, through Cruise Critic in the future. The Azamazing Adventure was more “Aza” than “amazing”. We had another overly long bus ride, this time to The Ancient City in Bangkok, a park that has been built to show various historical and significant symbols of Bangkok and Thailand. We got there as it was getting dark and boarded trams which sped to the place where the program was to be held. Between the darkness and the speed of the trams there wasn’t much of an opportuniy to take in the sights, much less get pictures of them. When we got to the area where the program was to be held we were rushed to the seats and then had to wait for the rest of the group to be rushed to the seats. The program itself was okay, if somewhat drawn out, but the activity that followed was poorly organized and not really explained all that well. Then we were herded back to the buses for another overly long bus ride back to the ship. This was my third Azamazing Adventure and, since the first two were both stupendous maybe I expected too much, but in the future I’ll ask more questions about what the program is before committing to it.

The ship was looking great & wonderful service which Holland America is noted for. Loved the itinerary we sailed. Wish they allowed more time in Cambodia to make it worth the Visa fees while in Cambodia. Considering it was just a "stop" to pick up guests who went to Angkor Wat days before. Everyone on the ship had to pay for the Cambodian Visa regardless if staying on the ship or getting off. Would have given a 5 rating if the food had been better. In the dining room the food looked like it stayed under the heat lamps way too long. Very tired looking & not fresh. Buffet food a bit better, but not by much. Best French fries on the pool deck!! Entertainment has never been a strong suite with HAL. Sadly it still isn't . . . Still our favorite cruise line for more of the positives we enjoyed. Read Less

This ship is probably the most beautiful ship we've ever sailed on (we've done about 15 cruises)! Of course, being new helps, but it's much more than that. They've really gone out of their way to make it visually appealing, from the artwork to the architecture. The restaurants area all beautiful too. The public areas are amazing! The ship left from Hong Kong, where we stayed for a few days. Interesting city, though we hit much rain. We learned that November/December is the rainy season in Asia. Our cabin, 13634 was amazing! It is a huge cabin with a sitting room and separate bedroom. The bathroom is about double the size of what we're used to (of course, this is a superior grand suite). We had a wrap-around balcony (about 3X the size of the others). It had space for two sets of lounge chairs and a table and chairs. The only problem with the cabin was that it is right below the pool deck and one morning we were awakened at 4:00 a.m. by the sound of the crew dragging pool furniture above us and using high powered hoses to clean the deck. Once we let them know, they ensured that it didn't happen again. Being a suite guest had its perks. We had access to a special lounge with snacks and free drinks between 5:30 and 8:00 p.m. There was a concierge in the lounge that helped schedule activities for us. He was a great help. He scheduled us for iFly, and bridge, galley and back stage tours. This was a huge perk of booking a suite! In addition, there is a restaurant just for suite guests, Coastal Kitchen. We really enjoyed the intimacy of this restaurant. We had some issues with a couple of the wait staff, but the manager ensured that things were corrected. Chen was the best waitress we ever had and we requested her, whenever possible. We learned that the ship does not offer a lobster night, rather, you can pay an additional fee for lobster; however, there was one night in the Coastal Kitchen that they did offer lobster for suite guests. The biggest con on the ship is one that has already been mentioned . . . the Windjammer buffet. The food was not always up to the quality we've come to expect of Royal Caribbean and we found that it was very crowded often, turning people away because there wasn't enough space. Luckily, most of the time we were able to go to Coastal Kitchen, because we were in a suite. The other con was the shows. They were absolutely NOT up to the Royal Caribbean standards. Some were not well-written and seemed like they were just trying to show off songs and costumes with no real theme tying them all together. The singer on the last night was probably the best show of the cruise. We have always enjoyed the big production shows, but this sailing was the exception. We booked all of our own excursions so I cannot comment on the ships' tours. Our private tours worked out great! Check out toursbylocals.com, if you're looking to book your own. The cruise ended in Singapore, where we also spent some time. I highly recommend spending time in Singapore. What a great city! Very clean and beautiful architecture! Be sure to visit Gardens by the Bay at night. The Christmas light show was an added bonus! All-in-all we really enjoyed our cruise and this beautiful ship. Read Less

Sailed the Asia Immersion Cruise on Celebrity Millennium from 10/30/16 to 11/13/16 We have sailed on 2 x Princess, 6 x Carnival, 1 x RCCL, 2 x Azamara, 5 x Celebrity and 1 x NCL. Azamara is our favorite and Celebrity 2nd. We sailed on the Summit in 2005 (which we liked, same Class ship as Millennium), things have changed on this class of ship in 10+ years, since then we have sailed the Solstice Class ships until the Millennium. I’m not quite 60 and wife is a young mid 50’s girl. Celebrity Experience: Ship seemed to be in good shape for being 16 years old. Some signs of wear and tear here and there. All in all not bad for an old ship. Easy to maneuver around the ship with a good layout. Didn’t have long waits for elevators most days, except when everyone is trying to get off the ship and trying to get to deck 4 or 1. There were some problems with water on the ship that we don’t think they handled very well. Some people we met on board didn’t go ashore one port day. They told us the water was off during our time ashore. They said it was off for more than 4 hours, with no notice or announcement. He went to the lobby desk to ask about the water being off and they said there was only a small problem and would be back on very soon. 3 hours later he asked again to see when he’d be able to take a shower. Again, he was told it would be back on soon. He said he had the impression that they either didn’t know or were just lying to him. He said every one of the staff he asked, he would get a different answer. I believe Celebrity handled this situation very poorly and didn’t communicate to the passengers what was going on and didn’t give an announcement when it was back on. My wife said the hot water for the public restrooms was off several times during the cruise, she reported it but didn’t get much of a response. For the first week and a half of the cruise we didn’t see one person around the pool area serving drinks. While at the pool area if you wanted a drink you had to go to the bar yourself and order one. Is this because of all the “Drink Included Packages”? MDR seemed shorthanded of staff, 2 times my wife’s vegetables were served cold and it took over 10 minutes or more to get them heated. On the MDR menu they have added some extra pay for items like Lobster and prime steak etc. (up selling?) Someone mentioned that the assistant for the cabin stewards had been done away with. Is this because of all the “Gratuities Included Packages”? Martini bar bartenders provided no show making drinks like we experienced on Solstice Class ships. They simply were pouring $15.00 martinis. Ocean View Buffet ran out of coffee at a few locations on the mornings everyone was trying to leave ship early. How does that happen? At least 2 times we had to search for coffee, surly the management must know on early morning ports someone should be staffing the coffee machines. The food was Okay at the buffet, again just seemed short staffed. I noted I had run out of minutes for the internet when I know I had 67 minutes left when I logged out. I went down to see the Ilounge person and she argued with me that I hadn’t logged out, when I know I did. Let’s face it internet on the ship is a total profit item as they have it anyway to help run the ship etc. Why would this person argue with me as an Elite Member and just give us some more minutes. I even went over the account with her, you could clearly see all my use (360 minutes total) was 5 minutes here, 10 minutes here, 4 minutes here etc. Then the last one usage was 67 minutes, out of character based on prior use. This was on a sea day after the Saigon port. We used the ship offered tour of a bus into Saigon to meet our food/city tour guide (who was great). Before leaving for the cruise I checked with Captains Club about the drop off location for this bus trip. They had ShoreX e-mail me (I still have it) that said we’ll be dropped off at Union Square (a central part of the city), our tickets delivered on board said drop off was Union Square. Just so you now this was the first time I’ve used a ship excursion ever, always DIY. They put us on a nice bus, with a tour guide telling us about Saigon, hard to understand, I would say her English was much better than my Vietnamese, no big deal. Well of course they dropped us off to another location. I called my guide who was waiting at Union Square, he grabbed a taxi and came and got us. Main problem was some people didn’t carry a cell phone that would work in Vietnam. Our guide was kind enough to call the other passengers guides and let them know the new location. Here you are in a strange city and do not speak or read the language which can really throw off some older people. The new location was about a half a mile or more from Union Square. Why the change, I’m starting to think as my guide told us in Da Nang (another great guide) that the guides get paid a few dollars for every guest that they bring to certain stores/locations, wondering now if Celebrity was getting more from this new location by out biding Union Square to deliver 100s of people to them, or was the tour people in on it and Celebrity didn’t know, makes me wonder. The Captians Club rep said maybe due to traffic for the change in drop off location, this just didn’t sit right with me, as the new location wasn’t all that far and the traffic around there wasn’t all that bad. Well, with the Ilounge person and the mistake in the drop off location I got pretty mad. So I went down to talk with the Captains Club rep. and brought this up to them and asked when the corporate model for Celebrity had changed from the attitude of “yes” to the attitude “we just want your money and increased profits”. I explained that my wife and I are not too old yet and have spent 10s of thousands with Celebrity in the past and could spend 10s of thousands in the future on cruises. Why would someone think it a good idea to argue over a few internet minutes? As management for my company I really wanted to know why, is it that your staff is not properly trained in customer service? Do you not empower your people to make simple calls like this? I don’t blame the staff, I blame management. The rep did offer a 10% discount on the Saigon bus trip and to return some minutes, she asked what would be fair. I said I had 67 minutes left when I last logged out, but would leave it up to her. They returned 26 minutes, which I used doing 2 emails with pictures from my Iphone to the kids, internet very SLOW. Everyone we spoke to that we met had the same feelings, that the Celebrity standards they were used too were not shown on this ship. Some people mentioned that the Cosmos Lounge was not available as a quite reading area or meeting place during the day as they always had art shows going on, didn’t bother me, but some people didn’t like losing that open space on sea days. Another sign of revenue enhancement? I’m not sure if Celebrity standards have fallen this fast since our last cruise just 2 years ago to Italy and Greece or is it just this particular ship. If this is the new Celebrity, not sure I’ll travel with them anymore. Really hoping it’s just the Millennium and not a corporate wide decision, if it is I hope their management understands that destroying the brand may not increase revenue in the long run. Cruising is personal and customer service is what separates you from the crowd. My company is very successful because we empower our people to make the customer happy (within reason) and we understand that we don’t have any kind of lock on the market and are not the only company providing our type of service. There are many companies our customers can use, what separates us is our superior customer service. Well, I’m glad I got that off my chest. These are just my personal thoughts and I don’t mean to demean anyone who loves Celebrity. Food: Nothing to really remember, Buffet was Okay and had some varied food available. MDR seemed under staffed, but Hostesses were very good in trying to get us seated at busy times using “Anytime Dinning”. We aren’t nor claim to be foodies’. If we aren’t cooking it or cleaning up we’re okay with whatever. In the MDR they did have Escargot every night which I love. Steaks ordered were cooked right and of good quality. Lines a little long in the buffet in the early port mornings, that’s pretty much expected. The buffet did have some empty coffee and juice dispensers on the early morning busy port days, why wouldn’t management figure on this and have them better staffed, running out of coffee is a BIG time mistake. Is this due to staff cut backs or poor management? Wife did have some cold veggies a couple times in the MDR, which took longer to get reheated than on other ships in the past, these things happen when you’re trying to feed a few 1,000 people in a few hours. Didn’t bother with the upscale pay for restaurants, so no comment. All in all everything regarding the food was okay; nothing stands out as really good or bad. Just not up to the standard we’re used to with Celebrity. Smoking: Okay, no judging here, don’t want to hear about it, just want you non-smokers and smokers to know a little bit. First smoking is allowed on Deck 4 port side, where the life boats are towards rear of ship. On Deck 10, port side near the Ocean View Buffet entrance and Deck 11 port side near the Mast Bar. Being smokers we always get to know a lot of other people that smoke as we’re confined to certain areas. So you meet people and over time get to know them pretty well. On this voyage there were 51 different nationalities among the passengers. We got to know people from Germany, England, New Zealand, Australia, Zimbabwe, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, even New York (LOL) from all over. Now, what’s funny is once they found out we were American, all they wanted to talk about was the Presidential election. Being news junky I was in heaven. Loved getting all the different views and being asked all kinds of questions they asked. I tried to answer as best I could, hoping I didn’t set back world relations too many years. Greatest time ever, so hard to understand how foreigners pay more attention to our politics those most Americans do. Oh well, bad education system I guess. Cabin: Deck 9, 9024, 2B, Balcony, forward on starboard side. Standard cabin, standard balcony, unobstructed. Cabin had enough storage for cloths and luggage fit under the bed. Shower had curtain instead of glass doors. Did have enough storage space in bathroom for our needs. Bathroom provided with soap, body lotion, hair dryer, shampoo and conditioner. Cabin was pretty quiet as above the cabin is the SPA so no noise at night etc. Cabin was well maintained and clean at all times. Had to request ice for the cabin, which is now standard on Celebrity, they say to save water, I suspect now after this cruise is just another cost savings or revenue enhancement. Entertainment: Shows were pretty good and varied in the theater. The comedian was pretty darn funny, saw him once during a sea day. They had a gal that played the Violin that we enjoyed. The house band was really good. The other couple of bands that played around the ship were not great by any means. One band seemed to be a couple of beats slow for most of their songs. They did have daytime shows on some sea days, which we thought was a nice touch. Over-all: I would suggest that others be prepared for a little lower standard for this ship as it was all about the itinerary and not the ship or service. Having taken our last cruise with Celebrity 2 years ago, not sure if standards are now lower overall with them or it’s just this ship. I won’t expect to be Wowed by anything on this ship, if another cruise line offers a better price and itinerary, I would take that. As this ship from our personal experience was just nothing special. Really sorry to have to put out this type of sad report. I would do this cruise again even knowing what we know now, but only because of the itinerary and for NO other reason.

Decided on taking this cruise, as we were interested in visiting the Asian countries/ports: Hong Kong, Vietnam (3 ports), Thailand & Singapore,; and wanted to try one of Celebrity's Millennium-class ships(we've already sailed on their Century and Solstice-class ships. I must admit that I was worried as to what the condition of the ship might be after reading numerous, somewhat negative reviews of the ship over the past 12 months. I'm happy to share that for a ship that's been in service for nearly 17 years, I don't believe the negative reviews of the ship's condition are justified. The condition of the ship appears to have been lovingly maintained. In fact I thought the condition of the ship was exceptional for its' age. Service was good in all areas. Food was very good in the Main Dining Room (though everything needed additional salt in my opinion- but I have to confess that I'm a salt-a-holic), and we appreciated the fact that portion sizes were sensible- leading to little food waste. Our Main Dining Room wait/beverage staff were exceptional. Within 2 days they knew our drink/food preferences, and could "read our minds" before we even ordered- again exceptional, and what one comes to expect on a cruise. In addition to eating in the MDR, we purchased a 3-meal specialty dining package. Very much enjoyed our meals at Tuscan Grille and Qsine. The third restaurant, Sushi on 5, is another story. This restaurant seems to have been abruptly thrown together, replacing what I believe was formally Bistro on 5. There doesn't seem to have been much (if any) effort in converting this dining venue, and because of this, you certainly don't feel like you're in a sushi restaurant. It's unfortunate, as you don't feel the "hip" vibes that are common in contemporary sushi restaurants. Add to that the fact that the sushi selection really isn't that good and you've got a formula for failure. The restaurant was nearly empty most of the cruise. Too bad- it could be successful with more effort on the part of Celebrity(change the atmosphere to a true, hip Sushi "Bar" and you'll fill it.) Selection and quality of the food in their Ocean View Café was very good, but unfortunately, it was often difficult to find an empty table for eating with all the passengers. All entertainment was good. The talent of the Celebrity singers/dancers were exceptional, but the productions they were performing were somewhat "cheesy" and a little dated. I believe productions just needed to be slightly reimagined/tweaked. All ports were great, albeit you did need to travel quite a distance (2-3hrs. each way) for most of the excursions in Vietnam and Thailand.) Read Less

Cruise companies must recognise that the world has changed and even grey cruisers are used to unrestricted free internet access. The issues concerning internet access spoils what ought to be a relaxing experience. First cruise, so impossible to compare to other ships or companies. Ship was about two-thirds full, so no queues and easy access to all facilities. Very relaxed. Most people go to bed at 10.30pm, so little night life. The extremely high cost of drinks might be a contributory factor. They made an error in what time to meet me at the airport, thought l should have arrived earlier, took quite an effort to persuade them to fulfill their responsibility and take me to the ship. However, the agent was extremely pleasant. All staff on the ship were polite and helpful. Food was excellent, as was the service in the Lido buffet and Rotterdam dining room. Not a lot laid on during days at sea to facilitate contact between the customers. I traveled alone and felt that the company did not recognise the needs of single passengers. The open dining facility in the semi-formal Rotterdam dining room meant that l was able to meet a wide and interesting range of people. Mixing with the elderly clientele that Holland America appeal to, was perfect for me, so the company would be high on my list for any future cruise. Read Less

It was a last minute decision to go on a cruise and this was the only one available. We booked two days before embarkation and arrived in Hong Kong the night before departure. The ship was beautiful and the staff very friendly. Although it is a French speaking ship, English was well catered for, with all crew bi-lingual. Announcements were made in French then repeated in English. This being our first cruise, we cant really make a comparison with other lines but we enjoyed the experience. There were other folk that seemed to be cruising experts and had been on many different boats; they had mixed reviews of our ship and line. One common complaint was that the food on board was not really up to standard for a 5 star cruise line; I agree. There were two restaurants, one buffet and one fine dining. The buffet was average and really only cafeteria standard, the choice was limited and food quite unappealing, with pretty much the same every day. The a la carte was naturally French cuisine and also limited. Quality in the fine dining restaurant was better than the buffet and the wine choice ok. The buffet wines were unacceptably poor quality. Entertainment on board was limited but pleasant, with singers and dancers and a piano player. Personally, I was happy with that level of entertainment and really, it was not a large ship, so one would not expect entertainment extravaganzas. Drinks and all food on board was included in the ticket, which was good. Excepting the wines in the buffet, the drinks selection was really good, with beers and quality spirits included; I like scotch and there was a very acceptable single malt in the choices. Any premium spirits or wines were charged for. Passenger demographic was mainly French with about 25 Americans and 15 Aussies on board. Everyone got on fine and we socialized with all groups. There were not many kids on board but they were very well behaved and the crew catered to and entertained them. I would guess the average age on board was around 45 - 50, hence, no disco....thank God. We have discovered that we like cruising, so we will go again soon and would very likely choose a Ponant cruise. Read Less

This was our first cruise, and my husband and I did it with 2 other couples. We spent 3 days in Hong Kong, before boarding the ship. It was easy to get on-board, although a little slow. We were provided with cold water whilst waiting to get through the boarding process. We found the ship great. It didn't feel overcrowded, except for peak times, like eating in the windjammer, or lining up for tickets to go ashore. We were in cabin 2578 on deck 2, with a port hole, which was larger than expected. The cabin was roomy, with ample space for us to unpack everything. We loved the Sapphire dining room, and ate there most nights. We had My Time Dining, but booked a time each night and had the same 2 waiters and table. The food was good in there, and service great. The windjammer was ok, but very crowded and noisy, and the food was average, although there was a large variety there. There were plenty of activities going on throughout the day, but things like the trivia were often very crowded. The entertainment was very poor. We went thinking there were going to be a few cabaret / Broadway type shows, but this didn't happen. The ice show was good. The staff were all amazing. From serving you in the eating areas to passing you in the hallways, they were always smiling and greeted you with a friendly hello. They were only too happy to help out where they could. We booked all 4 excursions through Royal Caribbean. Our first shore excursion was Sanya, and it was very poorly organised. We had to queue up for bus tickets for over 40 minutes, then get of the ship and taken to Chinese immigration for another 30 minutes, before finally starting our tour. In the brochure it was advertised as a morning tour, but was done in the afternoon as this was when they got into port. By the time we reached the village, the cultural show was half over and most of the displays were closed, so we were lead through them and had it described. The air-conditioning and fans had been turned off in the display areas, and it was incredibly hot. We had our meal and then straight back to the bus, missing out on the pearl museum, which was one of the reasons we chose that tour. Our next tour, Nha Trang, we had to be tendered on and off the ship. Our Nha Trang tour was slightly better organised, however, we did the river cruise that consisted of 10 minutes on the river, a short shore tour and then another 15 minutes back on the river. We went to a temple, and were left there for 90 minutes, we had seen everything there after about 30 minutes. We arrived back at the wharf at he allotted time to be tendered back to the ship, only to have to wait in the direct sun for 90 minutes, waiting for the tenders to come. This was unacceptable. We did both days tours in Ho Chi Min, and these tours went very smoothly. My husband did the Cu Chi tunnels on the second day, and found this tour very informative. Well worth the effort. We had an enjoyable cruise, and will probably look at doing another one in the future, but not for a few years. One thing we didn't like was the way they test your credit card by applying charges and having them as pending for 5 business days. We had three charges added as well as our sea pass charge, and had to wait to get it removed. Also, check your sea pass account daily, as we had 2 drinks added to it twice. Read Less

Went on a 8D7N fly cruise from Hong Kong and back to Singapore. Flight from Sin to HK, included in the package, was on Cathay Pacific which provided an average service. Check in luggage was fast, no queue (probably because we reached the terminal around 3pm where many passengers already check in). There was not much queue at the check in counters. The whole process was fast. We stayed in junior suite, 6394, hence no priority in check in. The terminal was large, so except a fair bit of walking before reaching the cruise ship. Got sea sick the first night (there are medicine available at medical centre free of charge). Pre-booked the internet via my cruise planner, which was cheaper than onboard. Access code was found in the room, together with our pre booked shore excursion tickets when we arrived. There are light snack available at Cafe Promenade prior to ship sail. Ship sailed off at 5pm with some dance at the poolside. Went for dinner at deck 5 (pre-booked My Time Dining). Strongly encourage to pre-book (at least 3 days before sailing) to avoid the Long queue at guest services and reservation counters. Servers Joseph and Ketut served us for almost the entire trip. Great service, and was able to remember our preferences after 2 nights. Luggage was delivered by time we finished dinner at 7+pm. Shore excursion at Sanya: As we would be docking Sanya on day 2, there are reminder in room that payment of US$25 for Visa. If need waiver, need to queue at Guest service centre, which resulted in snaking queue. guests also need to collect tickets for shuttle bus (complimentary) from ship to Sanya immigration. Please go early if u want to get off the ship earlier. Priority given to guests on ship's shore excursion. Waited for nearly 2 hours to get off the ship and finally clear the immigration. We had booked our own private driver (booking@delightcar.com) which cost US$100 for 6 hours. We visited Nanshan Temple, which was closed by the time we reached at 5pm; we only managed to go in to see the Guan Yin by the sea, which was worth the travel. Shore excursion at Nha Trang: As the cruise ship cannot stop at the port, the cruise provide small ships to send us to the port. Similarly, need to queue to get queue on the ship. Much of the information were not announced, please check with the staff for latest info. We managed to get onto the first tender, which means we have more time at shore. Please note that u need to be able to walk few steps to be able to get onto the tender, as there are stairs. We booked a private shore excursion (dung Pham tours), US$60/pax for about 8 hours tour. Highly recommend as it was better than the shore excursion by Royal Caribbean. Lunch was included. Shore excursion at Phu My: The last stop is at Phu My which is a commercial port. Nothing to see there except few stalls which sell Super mark-up items at least 2-3 times more ex than Ben Thanh market. Booked "Saigon on your own " shore excursion with Royal Caribbean. As we were first few to get off the cruise ship, waited for about 45 mins for other passengers before bus can depart. Travel time is about 2 hours to Ho Chi Minh city. Went to Ben Thanh market for shopping, massage and manicure. Prices are much cheaper than the cruise. Activities on the ship are flow rider, rock climbing, ice skating (limited hours open as they are closed for ice skating performance), Table Tennis, mini Golf. Please try in the early days of the cruise as there are more ppl queuing towards the end of the cruise. We are also entertained by the daily performance and movies. Out of the 7 nights, there are 2 formal nights and most really dressed up! So bring at least a set of formal clothes. There are Photographers who will go around to take your pics. They have photo package first 3 days, u can consider taking as photos are charged at US$20/pc. Dined at deck 5 (for passengers on My Time Dining). Food was generally quite nice except the first day. Also tried windjammer for lunch and breakfast, but prefer the food at MTD. Lunch and breakfast at main dining room is ala carte, we shared table with other guests. Breakfast at cafe promenade was limited to sandwich. We are greeted by the warm hospitality of the staff in the cruise. Despite the cruise having 3000+ passengers on board, we don't have the feeling of overwhelmed by people, except during shore excursion. It was our first cruise and a great experience. Read Less

It is a large ship. The check-in took over an hour & half. Due to the fact we had not been told to bring a copy of our passports. Otherwise ok. The ship itself is quite impressive. Very clean & some great friendly staff. A few issues- guest services queues up to 1.5 hours only 1 or 2 people at the most to help you. They do not have a money exchange desk so you have to use the guest services. The only time we didn't queue was 2.00 a.m. You do not get coffee in your room we asked they can only provide tea. Seems very silly as you have a kettle in your room. It would be a good idea to have some sachets in your room we did ask but was told "no only have tea" When you are going on an early start it would be good to make a coffee before you leave your room as sometimes you can queue quite awhile in the restaurants. The first time we went go on our first excursion it was total chaos 2 people only were issuing bus tickets. People were queueing on the stairs & all the way from the top of La Scala to the bottom, people were pushing & shoving it was dreadful. Some people had small children & babies also some people were disabled.This should not happen. No staff to help or advise. All different trips met at the same time & place. It needs to be more organised different times & meeting points Everyone was complaining. They blamed it on the Chinese immigration (this also took over an hour) but this was not the issue on the ship. I have never been in so many queues. A lot of wasted holiday time. It took nearly 2hours just to board the bus very stressful. The entertainment is quite good & varied. Meals also good. Ship itself has plenty to keep you entertained. Even has a high street with a pub. Worth upgrading the drinks package. Read Less

Because it was good for all ages,it had lots to do for our grandchildren and great entertainment at night for young and older,We all had a great time as it is hard to get everyone free at the same time to go away.My husband and i had a balcony cabinwhich we really loved,we would leave the door open at night and go to sleep listening to the sound of the ship pushing through the water.The meals in the sapphire room where great and our waiter was really really good He did tricks for the children folded amazing things out of servettes, and magic tricks,he was great with the younger children ordering food as that was one of the things as grandparents we wanted them to experience, they all enjoyed trying different food types and being adventures. We all cant praise him enough. As a family we enjoyed every night the different animals made of towels a nice touch.We went to cupcake classes and the woman there was great very helpful and friendly, she seemed like she really enjoyed her job.I while on board purchased a work of art which i fell in love with to start with i was a bit worried but it did arrive around the time they told me and it is now on my wall and i admire it every day. Kids club was good wave rider arcade games, our 5 year old loved the ice skating. I can recommend the cocktails for me the pina colada won the day.The only thing which let it down was getting off and where we where taken disapointing,plus we didnt need to get visas for china priorvery expensive.We all had a great time and would go again Read Less

The timing fit with our schedules and we were drawn to the destination. We have been wanting to visit Vietnam for a long time. We also got to spend a few days in Hong Kong before our cruise; it is a beautiful city, easy to get around, with lots to see and do. We like Royal Caribbean because we have finally achieved Diamond status and can enjoy the perks. The Diamond Lounge is on Deck 14 in a lovely location with good views. Although this was our first time on Voyager, we have sailed on her sister ships, Navigator and Mariner, and we have decided we don't really like this size of ship. It feels very crowded, and the interior mall feels more like a city than a cruise ship. But we do love the ice shows! Perhaps because this was a repositioning cruise and there were many staff changes as the ship moved from Asian itineraries/Asian clientele, to the Australian market, everything felt very disorganized. There was a long queue at the Guest Services desk most any time of day. There were no destination talks or enrichment lectures, no information about the ports we were visiting. The embarkation process in Hong Kong was atrocious. As Diamonds, we have priority check-in, but we had to queue for an hour before we reached the check-in area. Then, we were diverted to a separate line to make copies of our passports. Luckily, I always carry an extra copy of our passports, so I was able to skip that line and finally reach check-in. Then they took the passport, as well as the copy, which left us wondering, if they were going to take the passport and not leave us a copy, why not make the copies themselves on board and save the guests an extra step? There was also a lot of misinformation given on the website and to travel agents about documentation requirements for the ports. Some passengers paid a lot of money for visas they didn't need. We were told U.S. citizens didn't need a visa for Sanya; when we boarded, we were told we'd be charged $25 for one unless we booked a shore excursion. So we scrambled around at the last minute (and queued) to book a shore excursion. Disembarkation at Sanya was also terrible. All the guests going on excursions were scheduled to meet in the same place at almost the same time; we had gridlock that would violate anyone's fire safety code. It took us almost two hours to get ashore. Thankfully, they did better in the other ports. The first couple nights in the My Time main dining room, there seem to be problems seating the guests. There were long queues in both the "with reservations" and "without reservations" lines, yet we could see lots of empty tables, all set for dinner. Fortunately, the process improved as the week wore on. Other than the crowds and excessive queuing, it was a good cruise. There was lots of good entertainment, fun trivia games, pleasant staff, and delicious food. We disembarked in Singapore, where we have been several times before. We arrived at the new Marina Bay Terminal, which is now on the MRT--much more convenient than the last time we were there. Read Less

It was excitement that we a family of 5 plus a friend for the 16 year old. We had two Grand suite interconnecting rooms on deck 10. Because of the friend we had a small hiccup with embarking, we had not seen we needed to have a copy of his birth certificate, but once his mum emailed it we where on the ship heading to Winjammer for lunch. Our 16 year old had knee surgery 3 weeks before we left for the trip and most staff where considerate of him. By the time we had lunch our rooms where ready and our luggage was waiting for us, we loved them and our beautiful attendant Aloisa was friendly and attentive. Being a cruise out of Asia we as westerners was in the minatory and our kids (20, 18, 16 and 15) found it boring and the 20yr old could not find many people to chat with. We found the food lovely, we did Chops and Giovani's as well as the main dinning room. Chops was our favourite meal. oh and the kids had Johnny Rockets for dinner and enjoyed it. We found all the staff lovely and friendly. The ship was clean and always saw staff cleaning and attending to the car of the ship. The Itinerary was to include Taipei and Okinawa, but on arrival we where informed that Taipei was cancelled due to a typhoon, so we picked up an extra sea day. Okinawa was an interesting but the ship tour was shocking. The guide was boring and not engaging, she did get son a wheel chair in the Shuri Castle, but gave us no meeting place for us, so when we got split for the group we had no idea where to meet them (this happened to the two other wheelchair members as well). Then when we went in to the shopping district she got of the buss and had disappeared before we got off the bus and our son we left to chase her down, as was the older gentleman who could not keep up, then she stop 10 mins later at a fish market (we had no interest in that, by the time we got there our son was exhausted and I was furious and I let her know. Everyone was given just under an hour to shop, so we organised to meet at the bus pick up place so we could make our way back at our own pace. This was not the high light we where expecting and left us all disappointed. The only shows we did was the ice spectacular, this was very enjoyable and then hubby and I did a head liner, but she was from Twain and we did not understand anything, but she could play the Violin. Hubby enjoyed the Concierge lounge and their help everyday We are looking forward to our next Cruise on the Explorer out of Sydney in Feb. Read Less

The Voyager ship has so many things to do on it, particularly for kids. On a 5 night cruise, we didn't get to do everything. Favourite things: Flowrider, ice skating rink, ping pong. The service in the dining room was excellent. We actually didn't like the on-shore days in Vietnam - the people are very rude, following you around and pestering you to buy stuff, plus the traffic was dangerous with all the bikes zooming around and going through red lights - we almost got run over. So we wished we'd stayed on the ship instead of going on-shore. The two negatives about the Royal Caribbean company - 1. they say on their website to let them know of any dietary matters so I did, after I'd paid. They couldn't care less that we were vegan and they were extremely unhelpful, saying there was nothing vegan on the menu and we'd have to work it out for ourselves once on the ship. We were very fortunate that there was an excellent head waiter called Ismail on the ship, and we went to the dining room at his station each meal and he worked out special vegan meals and got the chef to prepare them for us. If it wasn't for him we would have starved. 2. I paid my SeaPass bill at the end with two cards - a Qantas cash card which I only had US$475 on, and the balance on my visa card. Subsequently I discovered that they charged the whole lot to my Qantas cash card which meant it must have used up some of my Hong Kong money that was on there. Not only that, but they charged the difference between 475 and the total not once, but twice to my Qantas card! I have had numerous emails with them and they have still not sorted it out. So while the ship, the activities, and most of the staff serving you on the ship are fantastic, the Royal Caribbean company and the way it operates needs a lot of improvement. Read Less
