This was the first time we had sailed on Azamara. We liked the size of the ship very much and thought the senior crew members were excellent. We liked most ports but felt a few of them could have been missed. The ship tours were way too expensive. We were able to get our own for more than half the price with english speaking guides.
We had a very pleasant dinning experience in the main dinning room. We had the same waiters most nights and they were very good. We did not experience the best of service in the two special restaurants. The food was very good everywhere and the presentation was excellent.
The cabins were fine and the staff was very willing to please. Did not really understand the to do about a butler. He often looked uncomfortable in his tux. Did not thank that was necessary.
Did not think the entertainment was wonderful. The ship's dancers & singers were very entertaining but most other nights were so-so. We felt that the last shows were too late starting. The Journey band has a way to go. The combo was much better that played by the pool and in the lounges.
The Cruise director was very good. He was very visible and very knowledgeable on all subjects he spoke on.
The Casino was ample and the staff very nice. Too bad it had to be closed while cruising in Chile.
