Ship Facts: Azamara Journey Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azamara Journey Deck Plans
The Best Ever - Everyone said so
Where to start? What did we like the best?

The first thing that comes to mind, is what is missing. What is missing is someone trying to get in your wallet 20 times a day. Wine is poured liberally at lunch and dinner, coffee and treats are complementary all day, all over the ship, there is a complementary laundromat. On other cruise lines, we have felt less than comfortable. I feel that given no options, 7 or 8 dollars is a lot to spend on the "house wine". Ships that leave the gratuities to the passenger, often have overzealous wait staff, and maitre D's. There is a tackiness in all of this.

The second thing we liked the best was the crew. Yes, Yes, all cruise ships have friendly crews. But this one tops them all. These people are really, really, friendly, and because it is in their nature, they already have the tip (it is included in the fare).

The third thing we liked best was free shuttle buses from the dock to the central city in each port. This not only saves money, but cuts down on the aggravation and stress factor tremendously.

The fourth thing we like best was the fellow passengers on the ship. These people were more interested in the ports, than in their clothes. Very comfortable.

And lastly, the food. Everyone we talked to on the boat agreed that it was the best of all ships.
