Having cruised on Azamara Journey before, we had high hopes of a great experience in the less explored waters of the Sea of Cortez. This time Azamara exceeded all expectations.
Embarkation was an unhurried, well organised process, and our cosy balcony cabin was traditionally elegant and comfortable, with water,sodas, fruit and quality toiletries replaced daily. A supremely comfortable bed had lovely Frette linens, and plush robes and slippers were provided.
Dining, whether casual, gourmet, or in the lovely standard restaurant, were innovative, delightful experiences, with efficient, friendly service, accompanied by a daily choice of excellent included wines. If room service was chosen, it was delivered, freshly prepared, promptly and invariably delicious.
The on board staff, all well trained, friendly and highly professional were clearly happy in their chosen professions, resulting in a very happy relaxed on-board atmosphere.
Daily activities were well organised, efficiently run and varied, enabling passengers to socialise easily and make friends.
The Baja and Sea of Cortez ports were all delightfully charming, with the opportunity to visit pretty, unspoilt , welcoming small towns, and the abundant wildlife we were able to see made this a truly memorable cruise.
Azamara is a cruise line offering so much to discerning passengers who do not feel the need to have the razzmatazz that the big resort ships now offer.
