Ship Facts: Azamara Quest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azamara Quest Deck Plans
Azamara Quest with a Great Balcony
(See our detailed review on the message boards for Azamara Quest.)

We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, the service was very attentive, and the ship was beautifully decorated. Were there a few little mishaps - of course - but that's life. They were very minor and either we ignored them or made a request for correction - which usually happened immediately.

Cabin (7119): The cabin layout is exactly as that pictured on the website. The cabin is truly beautiful. Everything looked new: lovely wood furniture, expansive closets, bedding is great, large bathroom (and even a small guest bathroom. Our favorite place was the balcony. It truly is large and we spent many hours on the balcony. It had two loungers, and two sets of a table with two chairs. In fact, the balcony is so large that we could walk back-and-forth.

Butler: In the past, we have had 2 butlers on Celebrity and 1 butler on NCL America. Our butler on this cruise, Antonio, was the best of all! A frequent question on the boards is if the suites get 2 or 3 people to service the room. The answer is 2. On Celebrity, if you are in a suite, you have 3: a room attendant, assistant attendant, and a butler. The butler brings breakfast, afternoon tea, canapEs, and reservations. They do more if you ask. On Azamara, the assistant attendant does a lot of the cleaning. The butler does all butler service and also does some of the light cleaning.

Food: Wow! OK, was every single meal the best we've had on a cruise - no. Was every single meal delicious - yes. Were some of the meals special and memorable - you bet. One that is truly special is the Veal Osso Buco in Aqualina. It is different than typical, and excellent! Overall, we rate the food equivalent to our three happy experiences previously on Celebrity.

Discoveries is lovely (but somewhat loud depending upon where you sit). We never had to wait for a table. A few times there would be one group in front of us that needed to be seated before us, but that took no more than a minute. We always requested a table for two and our request was consistently satisfied.

We ate dinner twice at Aqualina and once at Prime C. Both were excellent, but only a small notch up from Discoveries. I'm not discounting the food - it was really great - just trying to make a distinction.

Overall: Fantastic cruise. Would we go on Azamara again? Already booked!
