Better Late Than Never

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Other

I had intended to write an extensive review of our Azamara Quest cruise to the Canaries, but I would strongly recommend any future cruiser to read "Procters" recent excellent review of the same cruise.
We can only add that Azamara were unable to provide waiter service for breakfast and lunch in the main restaurant. We know that Azamara are only "luxury lite" but Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, and even MSC, can provide this service. We did not expect to have to adjust our eating times to beat the queues and accommodate Azamara's inability to cater for a largely British customer base. This definitely was not open seating.
The evening entertainment was very disappointing and it was difficult to see what market they were aiming at. We exclude the American comedian from this criticism, although he was largely wasted on the aged, docile audience.
We would also prefer that the senior ships management concentrated on rectifying the consequences of the rushed refit, and meeting More their customers expectations, than serving burgers and ice cream to their guests. We know that some cruisers, especially Americans like this, but more acceptance and focus on the ongoing problems would have been appreciated.
We also sensed that this was not a happy ship.
This was not the cruise we were eagerly anticipating and Azamara fell well below our expectations. Less

Good size cabin but needed updating. Faded carpet and old balcony furniture.
