  3. Azamara Journey
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.

Great ship, great crew, great food and drink = great cruise.
