This was our third cruise on the Azamara Journey, from total 39 cruises on 10 different cruise lines. We were looking forward how the refurbishment will change the view to the ship. And they did a good job in dry dock in ... Read more

I don't usually write reviews, there are so many good descriptions of cruises and ports I normally don't feel I have a lot to add, but this last cruise was such a disappointment and it was relatively expensive I thought I had to. Six ... Read more

As Journey was newly out of dry dock, there were some minor snagging issues with unfinished work but nothing to spoil the cruise. In the stateroom these were quickly rectified once pointed out. Caldera is not really geared for ... Read more

It was great to be welcomed back onboard by familiar faces from the crew. Our waiters remembered us from 15 months ago and it was great to see there smiling faces. What a great way to see Australia east coast by water. We could see ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised the Panama Canal before but it has always been on a Pan Max ship. Cruise the canal on a small ship like the Azamara Journey and it is a whole different experience. First you are not fighting 3000 other ... Read more

The second cruise after the dry dock, and they were still working on the ship! No washers or dryers, painting the baseboards, areas on deck partitioned off with plastic, food not that well presented or tasty. The crew was not familiar with ... Read more

My husband and I just returned from 13 day itinerary New Zealand and Sydney, Australia. We loved the more intimate smaller cruise, enjoying the ship, getting on and off, longer port days all pluses with less passengers. The staff were all ... Read more

I am a loyal Celebrity cruiser and because Azamara had a cruise which visited the islands where most of the big ones are not going, I decided to pay more than I am used to by buying Aqua Class on Celebrity. It was a wonderful cruise, the ... Read more

We just returned from an 11 day cruise on the Azamara Journey. The ship had come out of dry dock prematurely. The company allegedly allowed only 2 weeks to do a complete overhaul. There were weather issues and allegedly supplier problems. ... Read more

This was our 14th cruise, it being the second on an Azamara ship in the last 3 years. We were expecting another 5 star cruise, however it fell short of our expectations. We agree with recent reviews that the dining and cabin staff were ... Read more

We sailed on the Journey for a Panama Canal transit and it was wonderful! It was our first time on Azamara. I was a little nervous as it was "a luxury line" and we are just two unassuming retired folks. We found our fellow ... Read more

Been on Azamara several times. The brand is in the luxury market and priced accordingly and, in this light, I think it has slipped from its original standards. The staff are still very good and attentive but the food quality has just lost ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise on Azamara, and the 3rd on the Quest. First time over the Christmas holiday season. First impressions, the Quest looks a little tired, however, it is slated for refurbishment in early 2016. There seems to be ... Read more

Our first Azamara started brilliantly when we were offered the pay for upgrade to a suite from a veranda on the basis of our captains club / LCV status. WOW, we expected a real step up from everything we experienced on Celebrity. We had ... Read more
