Ship Facts: Azamara Journey Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azamara Journey Deck Plans
Azamara is Fabulous!
This was our first Azamara club cruise and we really liked it, I'm mean a lot.

Embarkation was a breeze and the attendants were helpful and kind in Stockholm. Met on the ship with a glass of champagne and knowing the cruise wasn't sold out (by my constant searching on the web) I asked about upgrades. We upgraded from an ocean view standard cabin to a continental suite for an additional cost. Sure, no sea days and only 7 days on the ship but the bathroom was full size including a real tub and nice balcony. Heaven!

We used the typical pool and hot spas which were clean and not over crowded.

The ship seemed to flow with people not in a hurry and enjoying each port and port scenery.

White and red wines were served with lunch and dinner as well as sodas included in the cost. No problem asking for one and the wait staff cheerfully brought whatever requested. Bar prices were reasonable and even happy hour was a great deal at the pool bar. Pool barbq open until 4PM.

I felt like I wasn't nickeled and dimed as I have on other ships,there were cold bottles of water ready for each days departing into ports and drinks ready for us upon our return to the ship. Our Butler had coffee delivered each morning and brought the tea service cart by each afternoon.

Since there are less people than other ships getting on and off the ship was no problem.

The french toast, caramelized pears and bananas in Windows cafe was outstanding. Prime C steak house had an amazing black angus steak and exceptional service. Overall service on ship was excellent and welcoming.
