This will have been our 10th cruise, but our first with Azamara. I am aware that all reviews are personal experiences, so this is what we found; and others are welcome comment or have differing experiences. We booked through an 'on line company' who were more interested in the money than the aftercare service, but in the end it all worked out Ok.
We arrived for two nights at the Copthorne Waterefront hotel in Singapore before the cruise. We flew Emirates economy, which was fine from Manchester ( both our flights were very good with this airline, and well organised ). The Copthorne was pleasant and the staff good, so no problems. Transportation to the ship was a joke, as the local carrier ( WANG transport) were poorly organised and did not provide a decent bus for the luggage and passengers. However we got to the terminal and the boarding process was easy and professional. We were soon on the ship and most passengers went straight to the Windows buffet !!!. Crowded yes, but it was boarding day, and our 'staterooms' were not quite ready.
After a short wait we got to the cabin; and ours on deck 6 (6037) did have a restricted view which we knew about when we booked. However it is quite blocked with one of the boats; so if you book it be aware.
