This was our third cruise an Journey the last being about 3 years ago. Embarkation was brilliant, we only paused long enough for them to register our credit card then up to the café for lunch and wine. We had a last minute ... Read more

We are in our late 50's and have cruised a fair amount (maybe 15 cruises?). Most of our cruises have been on Celebrity and Royal Caribbean, although we initially cruised on NCL with our teenage daughters (the entertainment was better for ... 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

Ship much older than one would think. Interior tries to intimidate the luxury of by gone days. 1). RECEPTION Check in at port excellent and quick. At reception it stated that the ship was full and no cabins were available to be ... Read more

Embarkation in Piraeus was easy. As our taxi pulled up to the cruise terminal in Piraeus, an Azamara rep with a clipboard greeted us and two uniformed attendants relieved us of our luggage. In short order, we handing our passports and ... Read more

Just a few words to let you know that Azamara is still a great choice for cruise ship aficcionados. Embarkation and disembarkation went smooth. Journey is a medium size ship elegant and quiet like I like. No annoying music around the ... Read more

When our son announced he was getting married in Spain two years ago, we knew we wanted to add something from our "bucket list" to our second trip to Spain. We decided to add a "luxury" cruise to tick off Greece and ... 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

Our second Azamara cruise, and only our third cruise in total - so not old hands at this yet. We wanted warm weather (our first cruise in October was not blessed with such!), and boy was it it warm... hot actually... but it was July in the ... Read more

We have been on over 15 10-14 day cruises on Celebrity and a few on Prncess- the big and mid size ships and enjoyed them immensely. When we met other cruisers on these cruises they as well as our travel agent raved about Azumara. When we ... Read more

Our first Azamara cruise was very good, but because we have been on Seabourn and Regent cruises we knew that we were definitely not on a five star ship. Here are the major shortcomings: Food in all the buffets was not great. To get truly ... Read more

This was our second Azamara Cruise, so we knew what to expect. We had a night in Athens before joining the ship. We stayed at the Athens Diamond Plus Hotel which was very well located - about 5 minutes walk from Syntagma Square and 10 ... Read more

The itinerary was Greek Islands, Corfu, Dubrovnik and overnight in Venice. I should say upfront that for us this was a large ship as we have gone on nothing but small ships for many years. So, we're used to checking in and walking through ... Read more

How can you not love Azamara? If you can afford it, just do it.  Sure it's not cheap, but (for us at least) even the MDR (I'm picking up cruise terminology!) was excellent, and a very good quality. The size of the ship meant we would ... Read more

Our recent cruise actually started with a flight from Heathrow to Athens via British Airways. We were offered a couple of flights which were not direct but this was not an option we wanted to take. Fortunately there was an option to go ... Read more
