Azamara still tops

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Middle East
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)

We did Athens - Mumbai in 2012 - first time with Azamara and as a result resolved to return. So 2013 saw us cruise Athens to Dubai.

A lot of crew remembered us from the year before - How do they do it? Within an hour it was as though we had never left.

Everything you hear about Azamara service is true. I now wouldn't cruise with anyone else.

Food remains excellent.

Despite the complimentary drinks now available I paid for a liquor package which allowed us to have Pimms, Grolsch & Pilsener Urquell beer, Bombay Sapphire gin [essential; for that pre-dinner martini!] al for about an extra £8/day.

The new sunbeds are even more comfy than the old ones!

Captain Johannes and Cruise Director Eric - what a team!

We'll be sailing with Azamara in 2014 without doubt Less
