Review for a Asia Cruise on Azamara Journey

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Had some reservations about Azamara as the company had changed hands since our last cruise with them. However, we were happy with the ship, cabin comfortable, excellent cabin attendant Raymond. Food good in dining room and buffet. We enjoyed the destination lectures. Agree with previous reviewer, the drummers from Kagoshima were amazing. Also the buffet on the deck before we reached ...

In my opinion: Avoid this cruise and Oceania for the following reasons: 1) horrible crowd management - 2 hour lines shoulder to shoulder for onboard immigration process; 2) bad excursion experience overall - booked, some bad guides, insufficient coverage of areas, problem with availability, 3) some excellent and some very rude and inexperienced staff. In my opinion there are much better ...

A big, disorganized mess

This was not our first cruise with Oceania and after a fantastic experience in Tahiti, we couldn't wait to go back. This experience however, was quite different. Our stateroom (A4), public spaces, etc., were lovely and comfortable, and the specialty restaurants were very good. The buffet and the Grand Dining Room however, went downhill compared to the previous cruise, Where Oceania let us ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

Our cruise experience, including our pre-cruise three night stay in Tokyo, was a mixed bag at best. Starting with the "transfer" from Narita airport to our hotel: this was a disorganized, chaotic mess. Our greeters at the airport kept us waiting for hours before finally leading us on a long walk with baggage to the bus. The Hilton Tokyo was a very good hotel with an excellent buffet breakfast but ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

In total, we have cruised @. 40 times to most corners of the world. This was our second time with Oceania..... and our last. We booked directly and our only contact was with the cruise consultant who took the booking. Any questions, and there were several regarding air, guest services etc were directed to him, but he could only pass the questions up the chain. We paid the fee ( higher ...

1) Food was good, not great 2) Shore excursion guides were not always proficient in English 3) Hired non-Oceania guide for Kyoto (from GetYourGuide) and had wonderful experience 4) Excursion to view Mt Fuji was a wasted day - coming into the port in the AM provided the best view and photo ops from the ship’s deck - excursion took us to the far side of the bay (much further away) or a ...

A Great Regent Cruise -- Returning in August

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Debated whether it was a 4* or a 5. Lets say 4.5 and round it up. Itinerary was Tokyo to Tokyo with stops in Japan, Korea and China. Pre Cruise (included) - We did our own air and transfers. Added 2 days on our own to the hotel @ $450 a night. The pre cruise tours were organized by Destinations Asia and had an American in the front doing all the managing and announcements. Worked well ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Overall a very mediocre cruise - nothing special Cruised with Holland America 10 years ago and it's not as good then. The points: 1) We were also charged for Crew Appreciation even though our Have It All package booked through IGLU stated this was included. It was only removed after we queried this with Guest Relations, although we did tip the cabin staff personally. 2) During the cruise, ...

Review for a Asia Cruise on Celebrity Millennium

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our worst experience with Celebrity in our over 20 years of cruising with them. The Millennium is a dated ship that has not been well maintained. Celebrity should no longer be using her. Service has suffered greatly in the post-COVID era. The ship felt understaffed with totally indifferent staff. There were waits and lines everywhere. The buffet cafe was always crowded and dirty. We ...

We’re do I start, this our first cruise and our last with Holland America. First the good, outside cabin good with great steward; have it all package good value and Wi-Fi actually worked throughout the ship. Specially dining was excellent. Band in the rolling stone lounge excellent but that’s about it. Dining in the main venues was an experience to be missed. Lack of organisation and it appeared ...
