We arrived in Athens the day before departure and were taken to the Athens Gate Hotel by Welcomepickups. We would recommend both the hotel and the car service. Welcomepickups also brought us to the port the next day - timely, clean car, ... Read more

This was our third cruise with Azamara, chosen mainly for the itinerary. We stayed one night prior to embarkation at the Hilton, Athens. This was part of the package. Arrival in Athens was mid afternoon and about 35°C, so we decided ... Read more

Having cruised many times over the past 20 years, we decided to try a smaller ship with an excellent itinerary and good reviews. We certainly found our ideal on this cruise from the first moment we arrived at the dock. Even though there ... Read more

This is my 6th cruise with Azamara and I keep coming back so I must enjoy it! The staff of course is the reason, but a lot should be said for the Azamara clientele. I met so many nice people and enjoyed great company. I have cruised the ... Read more

We were on the Athens to Nice sailing and had a great experience. To be honest, I was not expecting to like this cruise and thought many times to cancel. I’m glad I did not. We had a verandah cabin, which is the smallest cabin ... Read more

Friends had sailed on Azamara before and raved about it, so we wanted to give it a try and we LOVED it ! Will be back ! The ship was smaller than our most recent cruises, and we loved that part of it, even though we were skeptical. ... Read more

We were on the same cruise as an earlier negative reviewer; had a totally different experience! We had a verandah cabin, which had great storage ( we didn't even use it all) and utilized the desk and mirror area as a secondary makeup area. ... Read more

Although my wife and I have taken many cruises, our May 2016 Mediterranean cruise was our first on Royal Caribbean’s upscale Azamara line and for us it was a most enjoyable one. We rate it a solid B+. Getting things off to a ... Read more

What a pleasure to be back on the Quest - - my four most recent Azamara cruises were on the Journey, which I also love. The two ships are equally welcoming; however I would give the Quest a slight edge for one reason: the entertainment. I ... Read more

This was my third and last cruise (12 Night Best of the Holy Land) aboard the Journey. The ship is in desperate need of a serious makeover not just refreshing cosmetics. The staff was as friendly as ever. The quality and choices of food ... Read more

The purpose of this seven night cruise, our tenth on Azamara, was for some relaxation. It was a port intensive cruise with only one sea day. Only one port was new to us (Patmos). An upsell offer pre cruise allowed us to splurge and ... Read more

This was our first Azamara cruise. Wanted to see if we liked the small ship experience as we tend to favour Celebrity's Solstice class ships. There are pluses and minuses. Loved the fact that you never had to fight for a sunbed and no loud ... Read more
