Just came back from our cruise, and it was more than I expected. I had read some of the reviews, and since this was my first time on this ship, I was a little worried. Our experience was great. I'll tell you the negative first. The ... Read more

Went on this ship 14 years ago and nothing's changed in all that time! It needs a total makeover, a total gutting of the ship. It looks old and feels old. The food in the dining room was only mediocre. They have 2 specialty restaurants ... Read more

Due to the bad weather we missed the Buenos Aires port which we were looking forward to. ChoiceAir was the worst company to deal with. My husband and I never book through cruise lines but due to unpredictable weather we decided to take a ... Read more

Picked this ship and cruise for the itinerary-- was so pleasantly surprised at how nice so many of the ports are-- you never hear much about places like Punta del Este, Ilha Grande, Ilhabela and Parati, but they have beaches and charming ... Read more

I had great expectations for the Azamara Cruise in South America but I came away very disappointed. I must say, that with the exception of two waiters in the café, the service was exceptional. The officers made themselves very ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Azamara. Most of our cruises have been with Crystal and Celebrity. We are a couple in our late 30s and really enjoy a more subdued, upscale environment. I was a little worried having booked this cruise, as ... Read more

We were on the Azamara Quest Antarctic cruise 13th January - 1 February 2013. It was a “bucket list” cruise and was our 4th cruise on Azamara and our 3rd on Quest. Our flight from Heathrow to Buenos Aires was uneventful. But ... Read more

This was our first sailing on Azamara and I'm a travel agent so we were very excited to see why Azamara has such a loyal following. We spent 2 days in Buenos Aires first at the Icaro Suites then embarked on our voyage. The checkin ... Read more

My husband and I have been on approximately 20 cruises on lines ranging from Carnival to Crystal. We prefer a larger ship but my husband liked this itinerary because of the overnight docking in several ports. We decided to think of it as ... Read more
