We do not like the idea of a large cruise ship with lots of people so we chose the Azamara. The itinerary took us from Singapore to Sydney via Bali and Komodo and along the coast of Australia from Darwin.
It was the right choice. From the moment we stepped aboard it felt like home.
We had a stateroom with balcony on Deck 7. There was plenty of room, lots of space for clothes and the suitcases stored under the bed. It was absolutely spotless.
The cabin was a reasonable size with very comfortable large bed. Lighting was good and and all linen was in good condition and very clean. There was plenty of cupboard and hanging space. The bathroom was compact, clean and perfectly adequate. It was well insulated and you did not get any noise from other cabins. We did however smell smoke from someone who was smoking on a balcony in spite of the no smoking rule.
There was no noise from engines or anything.
It was raining for part of our tour. We were taken by bus to the old fort and to the cemetry. It would have been possible to walk and there was very little information given. I did not see the point of going to a cemetry.
