Dancing with the Stripes: Azamara Quest Cruise Review by mamagump
Overall Member Rating
Dancing with the Stripes
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)
Specific aspects Azamara offered were fruit in the room daily, unlimited water and wine with lunch and dinner, room attendants Danny and I Made, and room service for breakfast on the veranda daily. These services made our cruise very enjoyable.
In addition, we also enjoyed the variety of dining offered in the evening, casual or more formal (but not that formal, just no shorts or sandals for men). The food presentation (ice sculptures one night and fruit sculptures were fabulous) and the evening pool parties/BBQ offered yet another choice for evening dining.
The entertainment, for the most part, was good. Cruise Director Russ's "night" was professional. Most cruise directors typically don't do their own show and he was a class act all the way More around, both performing and as a cruise director. The Quest Singers and orchestra were also very good in lots of entertainment venues throughout the boat. One of the few disappointments were a couple of the entertainers were not as strong as what the ship could have provided.
The spa experience was good. The only advice would be to take off all jewelry in the saltwater hot tub on the spa deck. It tarnishes.
The cold washcloths and drinks offered upon return from excursions were a wonderful touch as the climate was very hot in July and August.
Overall we would cruise with Azamara again, definitely! Less
Cabin review: 1C6037
We were on level 6 with a balcony so we were very pleased with our room. We are traveling with threesome (mother) who had a hide-a-bed and it would have been nice for the ship to offer more single rooms as it was crowded with 3 in a room.
