Ship Facts: Azamara Quest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azamara Quest Deck Plans
Blissful 13 nights!
Our last Transatlantic cruise was in 2008 when we sailed from Miami to Barcelona, but this cruise on the Quest was far superior in quality.

The embarkation in Miami was trouble free, if a little lengthy, simply because so many guests arrived at the same time. Once on board we were welcomed with champagne and we sat in the lovely Mosaic cafe until our stateroom was available.

We were in a Sunset Balcony stateroom which was the usual balcony cabin size but with a much bigger balcony overlooking the aft of the ship. Whilst the cabin size is quite compact and the bathroom small, the cabin was well appointed and immaculately attended to throughout our cruise. Felitiadad, our attendant, and her assistant, could not have been more obliging and friendly. They called us by name immediately and It was a pleasure to see them every day.

We ate in Discoveries restaurant each evening and thoroughly enjoyed the food. On one occasion, my steak was only warm and rather tough. After mentioning this to the waiter, it was whipped away and I was served a hot, extremely tender replacement. The waiters in the dining room were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. They too, called us by name, quickly knew our tastes, and seemed genuinely interested in us.

The Windows restaurant served a varied selection of dishes and , once again, staff were attentive and helpful. Wine with lunch and dinner was of good quality and plentiful.

The Mosaic cafe served lattes, cappuccinos, iced coffees and a variety of teas. It was also a delightful spot to sit and 'watch the world go by'.

We were exceptionally lucky with the weather and spent many hours on sea days sunning ourselves by the pool. The sun beds were the most comfortable I have ever used and towels were very large and plentiful. Waiters were constantly walking around offering iced drinks and sorbets.

Entertainment during the day, was plentiful, and in the evening of extremely good quality for a small ship. The dancers and singers were delightful, and Tony, the Cruise Director, tireless in his involvement.

My only criticisms of this cruise were that the itinerary, whilst limited, was somewhat thoughtless, as the two ports on route to Seville, (Bermuda and Tenerife) , both fell on Sundays, when most shops and facilities were closed. The journey down the Guadalquivir River was exciting, as it was quite a navigational feat for the Quest. However, it berthed almost in the centre of Seville. Unfortunately, if you had not booked an extra night in a hotel, you did not get to see the city at all, as disembarkation was early the next morning!

There is no question that, God willing, we shall sail again on Azamara.
