It's a bit late to answer this as your trip has been and gone - we were on it too and had a fabulous time - it was our first cruise so we had nothing to compare it with - but hope you enjoyed it too!!! We had a balcony cabin but found we didn't use it that much - though it was nice to have it. Great to open that door in the mornings.

As nobody has answered I will because we love Azamara. If you were pleased with Celebrity then you should love Azamara. It is slightly more upmarket and nothing happens at a rush but the ambiance and the pace of living says it all. As you seem to have been with Celebrity quite a few times you should be Select or Elite status so make sure that your agent has told them tis and on the first night onboard instead of being given a time to dine in the normal restaurant you should be offered a table in one of the speciality restaurants and if you are not ask for it. Well worth that extra (free) visit, you will be asked if you mind a $5 tip being added. Great staff and great ships. .......Neil.

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
