Just came back from our cruise, and it was more than I expected. I had read some of the reviews, and since this was my first time on this ship, I was a little worried. Our experience was great. I'll tell you the negative first. The shower stalls are very small, but the amenities are good. The excursions from the ship did not appeal to me and it was expensive, as is the spa. The good ...

This was our third trip on the Journey. We have not been on any other cruise ships , so cannot compare. Overall it was a good trip. We very much like the small ship experience, no kids ambiance, and the staff are all excellent , and seem to "know you personally". Other guests were predominantly "senior", but well traveled and easy to get into conversation with. The one point many other ...

My husband and I just returned from the 12 Night Rio Carnival & Buenos Aires Voyage on the Azamara Journey and we can't stop raving about the trip. We are well-seasoned travelers who have taken more than a handful of cruises, but this experience was really "la creme de la creme." We love cruising for the ease with which it allows you to see multiple destinations: you unpack your bags once, you ...

This was our first Azamara cruise and will not be our last. From the very first day until the last, the service was superb. The food was excellent in both the Discoveries Restaurant and the Window's Cafe. We particularly enjoyed dinners in the Window's Cafe sitting at the stern of the ship, enjoying the sunset and breeze. The waiters and staff were super responsive and friendly. Noteworthy staff - ...

Due to the bad weather we missed the Buenos Aires port which we were looking forward to. ChoiceAir was the worst company to deal with. My husband and I never book through cruise lines but due to unpredictable weather we decided to take a chance. ChoiceAir has an emergency team that is supposed to do everything they can to ensure you get to the ship. They did not accommodate our requests but were ...

Disappointing Azamara

Went on this ship 14 years ago and nothing's changed in all that time! It needs a total makeover, a total gutting of the ship. It looks old and feels old. The food in the dining room was only mediocre. They have 2 specialty restaurants which were better but they charge you extra to dine there. This felt like "nickle and diming". The cruise was not inexpensive--these restaurants should be included ...

I had great expectations for the Azamara Cruise in South America but I came away very disappointed. I must say, that with the exception of two waiters in the café, the service was exceptional. The officers made themselves very visible and they were unusually cordial. I thought I would like the small ship experience but I did not. There were not enough activities going on in the ship. I realize ...

Azamara and Christmas/New Year's trip was great!

Picked this ship and cruise for the itinerary-- was so pleasantly surprised at how nice so many of the ports are-- you never hear much about places like Punta del Este, Ilha Grande, Ilhabela and Parati, but they have beaches and charming towns that rival anything in the Caribbean. Lopes Mendes beach was so beautiful. The fireworks New Year's eve moored in front of Copacabana beach were just ...

Just to be clear at the start of this review. I AM AN AZAMARA LOYALIST so the fact that there are some criticisms should be seen as hopefully constructive criticism. I have been critical of H Office actions such as laundry /internet access but would go to the stake supporting the on board experience. In summary for those who may not wish to read further. Good cruise not great. Tango evening ...
