Suez Canal to Dubai

Our friends had cruised on Azamara previously and had already booked this cruise. We have cruised before on large ships and didn’t really like the experience. So we weren’t really interested in cruising again ...

Second Azamara cruise previously on Quest

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, the destinations were mostly good apart from a change to Nauplion instead of Spetses. Mykonos was supposed to be docked instead we were taken ashore on tenders. ...

Piraeus to Civitavecchia: Upmarket but not ultra-luxury

After recent cruises with Silversea and Crystal, chose this port-intensive eastern Mediterranean itinerary for our preferred dates. We liked Journey’s Resort Casual atmosphere, but you get the room size you pay ...

Close to perfect

We chose this cruise because of the pricing, OBC, and itinerary. The Azamara Journey crew worked hard to prevent a ship wide outbreak of a GI virus and were successful. Someone(s) foolishly ate some street food. ...

Azamara Quest in the Med: very good overall but a few nits to pick.

Although my wife and I have taken many cruises, our May 2016 Mediterranean cruise was our first on Royal Caribbean’s upscale Azamara line and for us it was a most enjoyable one. We rate it a solid B+. ...

Good but not five star

Our first Azamara cruise was very good, but because we have been on Seabourn and Regent cruises we knew that we were definitely not on a five star ship. Here are the major shortcomings: Food in all the buffets was ...
