Ship Facts: Azamara Journey Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azamara Journey Deck Plans
NOT SO AZAMAZING

This was our 10th cruise and we and our friends were very much looking forward to it but sadly Journey could not compare to Oceania's beautiful Riviera in any way ( we together with friends had sailed on Riviera twice in the last 12 months - read my review) and we also felt that Celebrity's own Solstice class ships were also so much nicer for half the price!

We found Azamara Journey to be very drab and in need of a total refurbishment. We had a standard balcony cabin (very comfortable bed) which was only ok but the bathroom was very small with an awful plastic shower curtain that would stick to you - very disappointing. No nice bath gelsor soaps.

The food in the main dining room was fine but we didn't find the restaurant that one had to pay extra for any better - which was very unusual as on other ships they are outstanding. The breakfast could be much better - always the same melon and no lovely fresh berries etc. lunch was ok we found the breads were poor as were the pastries.

Service was always good - but no better than we have had on any other ship

it is not quite fully inclusive as not the best quality alcohol was not included therefore we purchased scotch and better quality cocktails and wine. Found it surprising that every day in the ship information they would promote cocktail of the day for $9 - felt these should just be served not charged!!

We usually ate late so did not go to any of the shows.

No problem in sea days to get a sun bed (these were very comfortable)

Average age was approximately 70 - 80

We are early 50s as were approximately 40 - 50 other people

Transportation from and to the airport / hotels were very well organised

In Rome - stayed overnight in the Savoy - this is definitely nothing to do with the beautiful hotel in London! It was a very average hotel.

Coming back from Athens we stayed at the beautiful Grande Bretagne - a really fabulous hotel.

Would we go on Azamara again - sorry no......... but will definitely be going back on Riviera with our friends who we always cruise with.
