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.

Cabin review: Club Interior Stateroom

117050
We had inside staterooms on this ship. They were quite spacious with plenty of storage. The cabins were just 2 abreast facing 2 more cabins so very quiet. The bathroom was compact but had everything you need with nice toiletries. TV reception wasn't always good but we didn't spent much time in the cabin so it wasn't a problem. The bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows best ever. Free laundry down the main corridor was a bonus if required.

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
A lovely old walled town which was buzzing as several ships in on the day we arrived. Only problem we encountered was that not all the shops took euros and we didn't have the local currency.
Port
We arrived on a Sunday in Split and quite a lot of the shops were closed but there was a local market in the morning which was very interesting. We visited some beautiful churches.

Port
Our last port of call was Venice where we stayed overnight so no hurry to return to the ship. This was the only port where we had to pay for transport from the ship and we (and most passengers) went by water taxi which wait where the ship was docked. The trip to St Marks Square took about 20mins but water taxis were very frequent. A beautiful city with lots to see and do. Very busy here but we did get to go into St Marks and the scaffolding had been removed from the Palace.
