Before joining the Azamara Quest I have a couple of days in Tokyo to enjoy the city a bit.

Can’t wait to start my Asian Odyssey!

Azamara vs Regent

One thing I will probably end up doing is comparing Azamara and Regent. The first thing to note is that Regent is all inclusive where as Azamara is not.

Azamara standard pricing includes meals and standard drinks in the restaurants, shore excursions are additional and so is internet access. Meals in the specialty restaurants are also extra.

Prior to the cruise I purchased a Experience More for Solo Travellers package, which included unlimited internet, the unlimited beverage package, a few meals in the specialty restaurants, 3 bags of washing, some additional onboard credit and some spa credit. Onboard credit can be used for purchases onboard as well as shore excursions. So getting closer to a Regent style standard package.

On this trip my cabin will be on deck 7, just under the bridge, with a balcony that looks out over the bow, will be interesting.

    Hi! How exciting! A trip like this is on our list but we are going to Normandy and the South of France on Viking in September and then around South America Cape in February – maybe 2025! Will be looking forward to your pictures and stories!
