This was our sixth cruise with Azamara. We have also cruised with Oceania, NCL, HAL, Windstar, Louis, Katarina and several river cruise operators. This cruise was 16 nights, from Hong Kong to Singapore.
Embarkation was smooth. In the early afternoon we got a taxi from our hotel to the Ocean Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. This terminal is very conveniently placed. We were cornered by a lady from the local tourist board wanting us to do a survey, so that delayed our boarding, otherwise it would have been quick!
The Journey was looking in pretty good state. We had an ocean view cabin on deck 4, which we have been on before, and this is a position we are quite happy with. Our room stewards did a good job.
Convenient location, quiet, comfortable. Have booked this area before and will do so again.
This was the embarkation port. A good place for a pre cruise stay, with plenty to see and do. The Ocean Terminal which is used by Azamara is a convenient embarkation point.
We sailed right up the river to dock at Nha Rong Wharf, which is very close to the centre of Ho Chi Minh City. Azamara provided a free shuttle into a stop behind the Opera House. This shuttle only took about 10 to 15 minutes. As we had been to HCMC before and spent quite a bit of time there, we just used the shuttle both days to do some wandering around the centre of the city.
