If I wanted to narrow down between those two choices, I would not only look at price, but also itinerary and size of the ship. Personally, while both are very nice, Azamara would be my choice between the two. Price would obviously be based on type of cabin, length, and sail date. Keep in mind that prices shown include the cruise fare and port fees, but not taxes, transfers, or gratuities. One of the best times of year for pricing is in September; everyone is going back to work and back to school.
