This was our first cruise with Azamara so I can't compare their recent retrofit with what it was in the past. It took a little getting used to as it felt SMALL, but the convenience of being only 2 floors away from either the pool level ... Read more

We had so looked forward to this cruise for a special birthday and left it disappointed. We booked a package with Azamara and the first problem was when we arrived at the airport to find that seats had not been booked although we had ... Read more

I have sailed on much larger ships and knew that things would be very different on a smaller ship. I wanted a different itinerary and after many discussions with travel advisers and friends who had sailed with Azamara I bit the bullet and ... Read more

Long time cruiser but first with Azamara. The ship was undergoing an annual Coast Guard Inspection so we were delayed embarkation until 12:30. We arrived at that time and our wait was 15 minutes. Check in went smoothly. Our bags, ... Read more

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

We had very high expectations for this cruise; perhaps they were too high, as we were quite disappointed. I'll start with the positives: Embarkation was easy and quick. We were on the ship and hooked up with our friends in no time. ... 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

This was our third trip through the Panama Canal and we enjoyed it as much as our first two. We had been to many of the ports on this itinerary before, so we picked this cruise for the ship - we love the R Class ships. We sailed many ... Read more

We have cruised with Azamara before and were very pleased. This time we noticed a significant denigration with the quality of the food offered. There were always items at each meal that were acceptable. If we were cruising on a mass ... 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

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

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

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
