We (2 retired couples) have just returned from our first experience with Azamara Cruises and had a trip along the Dalmation coast. It was a changed itinerary due to trouble in Egypt but really glad it was changed. We booked on this cruise for that reason and the fact it was a small ship. The ports were all very interesting and had some magnificent sail ins into ports where a commentary was given on deck. There were also several overnight stays which enabled you to spend extra time there. All transfers from ship to port were free and frequent.
We cant praise the staff enough on this cruise. They were efficient and very friendly and kept us informed all the time without announcements permanently being played in the cabin.
The staterooms were immaculate & included dressing gowns, fresh fruit daily and soft drinks. Free dining worked very well and this was the first time we had experienced this and in particular free wine with meals at lunch and dinner.
Only downside would be that the shows were quite quick and not so grand as we have seen on the larger ships, but even so we still enjoyed them. Obviously the theatre was smaller but intimate.
Would not hesitate to recommend a trip on the Azamara Quest!! Very enjoyable.
