Exceeded our expectations!
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
My wife and I could not have been more pleased with our Best of Italy cruise aboard the Azamara Quest. During this 14 day adventure the Quest visited Civitavecchia, Sorrento, Taromina, Ravenna, Trieste, Venice, Dubrovnik (Croatia), and Florence(Livorno). The itinerary was what first attracted us to the trip. At several of the stops, Venice, for example, the ship stayed overnight so we were able to see more of the site.
Let me start at the beginning, the embarkation process was very well organized and very welcoming and the champaign apon boarding was nice too!
The staff throughout the trip was exceptional: friendly, helpful, just a delight!
The entertainment was uniformly good. The 9:45pm show was always something to look forward to. Thanks Tony!
The food was outstanding! The fish fry in Dubrovnik was something special. The fish we had for dinner had been swimming in the Adriatic a few hours before! Our comlpiments to the Chef!!
The wine More selections with lunch and dinner (included in the cost) were also very good.
The shuttle buses at each port were really a bonus. The buses facilitated getting to the various cities from our dock. There were always enough buses and there was never any crowding.
Just to give one example of how remarkable the cruise was: we sailed into Venice at 7:00am, the sun was just rising as we went by St. Marks Square and Tony, the Cruise Director, had Pavoroti playing over the loudspeakers in public spaces. Could not have been more perfect!
Thanks also to Captain Carl for the volcano!
The disembarkation and transer process was a very smooth operation.
My wife and I will cruise again -- with Azamara. Less

Cabin review: V27025 Club Veranda Stateroom
We had a cabin with a balcony. It was clean, roomy, and we had space for all of our "stuff". The cabin stewards were very attentive and very helpful.Read All Club Veranda Stateroom (V2) Reviews >>
