Fabulous Cruise from Athens to Nice!


We were on the same cruise as an earlier negative reviewer; had a totally different experience! We had a verandah cabin, which had great storage ( we didn't even use it all) and utilized the desk and mirror area as ...

A Great First Cruise

As first time cruisers we had no idea what to expect or how "you cruise". We deliberately chose the Azamara Journey because of its size. We didn't want to be on one of those larger liners and after seeing a couple ...

Good but Not as Good as the Quest

We took the 10 night Greek Isles Amalfi coast cruise 4/27/15. At first glance, the ship is so similar to the Quest that it's amazing:) We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our last 2 cruises on Azamara so we ...

An absolute dream cruise.

We are a couple aged 65 and 55 respectively. In wonderful shape and well traveled but we had never been on a cruise. We thought it to be too stodgy and way too laid back for our style of travelling. Well, we finally ...

We are a professional couple, ages 52 and 61, and well traveled internationally. We have been 1000% anti-cruising, thinking that cruise boats were floating nursing homes, or floating buffets for drunken rednecks.We ...

To cruise or not to cruise. That was our question.

You'll love it! You'll hate it! We really had little idea of what to expect with friends who had cruised telling us we'd love it and those who had never cruised telling us we'd hate being not being independent ...

Wonderful holiday to remember, I hope to cruise again !

This was our very 1st cruise and we didn't really know what to expect. Other guests we spoke to on board seemed really surprised that it was our 1st time: it would seem that once you've got the bug you become ...

Too Good to be True!

I grew up on boats. I love to travel. However, up till now, I had no desire to go on a cruise ship. Why? Because I hate crowds, lineups, buffets, tours, corny entertainment and seasickness. And I'm not crazy about ...
