Delightful ship, crew, passengers: Azamara Journey Cruise Review by enival

Delightful ship, crew, passengers
Destination: Western Caribbean
Activities crew led trivia games (my favorite) and other good programs. Entertainment included a 7-piece orchestra, some singers, comedians and magician in the small Cabaret lounge not like the spectaculars on big ships, but we preferred these. Even the few tiimes we played black jack, the dealers More were very friendly and helpful. The only thing we didn't like - but it didn't really bother us - was the promotion for the art auction and the visiting artists on board - and some guests who we understand were brought on board at low cost or free to bid for paintings. This seemed a big cheesy for this kind of ship.
The ship adapted well to cancellation of Guadeloupe and Martinique because of labor problems there, moving to St. Martin and Antigua. We enjoyed relaxing at St. John and Virgin Gorda beaches, taking the St. Kitts scenic rail trip, and just walking around other ports. We did not take any paid excursions but a number of people did. The variety of passengers, about 70% Americans, 20% Canadian, 8% Brits and a few scattered others (my guess at percentages) made it even more interesting. The gym was adequate with good aerobics classes. The pool was small with two hot tubs, and the usual problem with people reserving chaises. All in all, we heartily recommend the Azamara Journey for those who like varied passengers, top-notch food, and casual cruising (no formal nights, no set seating) Less
Medium size with king bed, love seat, desk/dressing table, entry hall with closet and drawers, veranda with two chairs and table extended the room's feel. Tiny bathroom but compact with shelves and small cabinet. On desk 6 at end of hall.
