Azamara Journey features cabins in four main categories -- interior, oceanview, veranda and suite -- many of which can hold more than two passengers, and there are ADA-compliant cabins across all categories.
Each cabins has two twin beds that convert to a European queen, terrycloth robes and slippers, a welcome fruit basket at embarkation, fresh-cut flowers, a tote bag, complimentary use of umbrellas and binoculars, complimentary shoe shine, a daily in-cabin news bulletin and chocolates at turndown.
Every room also has at least a desk, a refrigerator with a mini-bar, a safe and storage in dark paneled wardrobes and drawers. Cabins have individual climate control, side tables by each bed and plugs that are both U.S. and European. Flat-screen TVs have some international stations. You can also use the interactive TVs to order pay-per-view movies or room service and find out about shore excursions.
Bathrooms for all cabins (with the exception of suites) are on the small side, with Formica sinks, a storage ledge under the sink and a shower with a curtain. (The small size of the bathroom and shower is perhaps the main complaint you will read about the cabins on Cruise Critic's message boards.) Toiletries are by About Roses.
Interior: The ship only has 24 windowless Club Interior staterooms, measuring 158 square feet apiece. Some interior rooms do have sofas and tables. These digs are located on decks 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8.
Oceanview: Azamara Journey has three categories of Club Oceanview staterooms, located on decks 3, 4 and 6. Obstructed view cabins are I43 square feet, while porthole and picture window cabins are 170 square feet; handicapped-accessible oceanview rooms are 255 square feet. Some oceanview rooms have sofa beds, and connecting rooms are available.
Balcony: Azamara Journey has two categories of balcony cabins, located on decks 6, 7 and 8. Both Club Veranda and Club Veranda Deluxe are 175 square feet; the former has a 40-square-foot balcony compared to that of the latter, which can range from 46 to 64 square feet. These rooms each have a small sitting area, and while all have sofas, some have an actual sofa bed. Others are connecting cabins.
Suite: Each Club Continent Suite, Azamara's entry level suite type on Deck 8, is a spacious 266 square feet with a 60-square-foot balcony -- big enough for a full-size table and three chairs. There are two large closets and a bank of drawers, offering plenty of storage. All have sofas; in some rooms, they convert to sofa beds. The showers have tubs, and there are a few extra About Roses products. This room category and those above have DVD/CD players.
Located on decks 6 and 7 forward, the Club Ocean Suites range from 440 to 501 square feet with large 233-square-foot verandas. These cabins are true suites, each with a separate living room, a guest bathroom and a walk-in dressing room with a vanity. The master bathroom is decked out in marble with a whirlpool tub and shower.
On decks 6, 7 and 8 aft, Club World Owner's Suites measure 560 square feet with 233-square-foot balconies. Besides having all of the features of the Ocean Suites, these cabin have convertible sofa beds, making them a popular choice for families.
Suite passengers receive a variety of extra perks, including full butler service, afternoon canapes, priority check-in and debarkation, complimentary garment pressing, a bag of free laundry, 235 Wi-Fi minutes, sparkling wine and a four-bottle bar setup. (You can exchange out the liquors you don't drink.) Suite passengers can also eat in the two specialty restaurants as many times as they want during the trip, for free, and order off the menus for these restaurants as room service.
Other VIP perks include priority seating at the Azamazing Evening, a private cocktail party with the crew and -- for the top suites -- a "best of the best" dinner with the captain and other officers, where the ship's chef creates a special meal with paired wines. This is held in the ship's library once per cruise.
