This was our first cruise with Azamara having cruised around fifteen times with other companies. Embarkation was seamless with no queues at all - we arrived at the ship at 1230 for an 1800 sailing. Disembarkation was slower that seemed to ... Read more

Maybe my expectations were too high. Having cruised Oceania and Regent as well as many other lines, I was under the impression Azamara was 6 star. Embarkation and disembarkation were efficient and painless The staff were lovely, and ... 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

We have sailed on Azamara before, so its clear that they offer a product that we value. 1/ An example of their service: at embarkation in Istanbul it was raining. Evaluating the next day's forecast, Captain Magnus decided, I'm certain ... 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

Out of 35 previous cruises this was the worst .RCCL should be ashamed . The crew of the Ship tried their hardest but couldn't overcome the fact that this ship was not ready to sail as a luxury cruise . it was just out of drydock and it ... 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 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 my fifth time on Azamara and it did not disappoint. My only issue is it is becoming more popular and the good deals are running out. The secret of the wonderful life on Azamara is being let out especially by those that travel ... Read more
