Cabin was spacious, has been refurbished, pleasant decor, new balcony furniture, average cupboard space to hang clothes, odd bedside tables, ample drawer space. Nice timber finish retained, and enhanced by new decor and artwork. Horrible shower curtain, adequate only storage, rather small overall. Koningsdam, fantastic bathroom, Solstice not far behind, both have glass sliding shower doors and are spacious. Overall cabin on Journey is acceptable, see above for best cabins, Koningsdam and Solstice the best! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine but a little crowded. The little table had to be moved to sit at the dressing table and we had to request that a cupboard door be fixed as it was hanging off when we arrived. There was sometimes noise from the Cabaret Lounge but we did not find this an issue. Balcony furniture was much improved. Read entire member review >>
Nice colouring in the decor, bed really comfortable, bed linen fabulous, cabin cleaned early and efficiently as soon as we vacated for breakfast. The only disappointment is the size of the bathroom,especially the shower cubical, however I realise that is not something that can be fixed easily. Read entire member review >>
Enjoyed this cabin location! Positioned on the back of the ship, there was little wind and fabulous views of the day's port of call during sail away. Very relaxing to look over the ship's wake. No problems, other than the thermostat. That thing needs to be trashed. Cabin is not large, but is adequate. And being three decks below Windows Café removed us from the noise of the restaurant.

Cabin design was very good, to be expected small bathroom. Storage was better than average. Recent update was appreciated. Veranda was reasonable, not maintained very well. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice, we especially liked the view. It was a frontfacing cabin. You might get more wind, more sun and more movement but it didn´t bother us. In the afternoon you here some music from the stage below, also not a problem. Bathroom very small. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was at the aft of the ship and had a large balcony but had the problem of soot from the ship. This was not a problem for us, we just put towels on the chairs, and it was great to sit and listen to the sea. Read entire member review >>
The cabin had plenty of storage in our opinion. Luggage fit nicely under the bed. Very little storage in the bathroom but we managed. The drapes closed securely so sleeping easy. No noise to speak of. The AC was adequate. We asked for service on it and after that it seemed better. We had several days in the 90s! Read entire member review >>
Bathroom rather small: tiny shower area. This is a stern facing cabin : larger external veranda, (but no loungers). Slightly more enclosed feel on the veranda than the standard (side) cabins, but nice wide views. On balance a good choice. We did not experience any "movement issues" despite being right at the end.

We were in stateroom #7116 a Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom (formerly Sunset Veranda).
Quiet location, no overhead noise. Balcony partition not that private, could easily see or be seen from the adjacent cabin balconies. View partially blocked by ship's hull.
An adequate cabin with a slightly oversized balcony (could accommodate two loungers and a small table and chairs).
The room decor was fine if a little tired. The duvet was lumpy and not of good quality, the bathroom very small, furnishings worn.
Plenty of closet space and room under the bed to store luggage.
Interestingly, we received a note that work was to be done on our balcony (it did need some painting and the railing could have used a new coat of varnish) but no work was ever performed. Read entire member review >>
Tiny shower in a small bathroom. Great balcony but without needed lawnchairs. Bed not as sturdy and level as should be. Unable to place baggage underneath the bed as in other ships, so had to use space in an already very small cabin. TV screen good with good programs, but unable to rotate it for viewing from the sofa. No classical music available. Music heard in public rooms not available in the cabin. Very good interactive menu on the TV. Very good channels on TV, but should add CNN (to accompany FOX and MSNBC). EXCELLENT availability of CNBC, not found in most other ships. Adequate closet space. Sufficient number of drawers. Adequate desk with bunk. Adequate lighting. Adequate bathroom amenities and lighting. Read entire member review >>
We had a Sunset View Balcony at the front of the ship on Deck 7 - has the advantage of no cover over so you can breakfast in the sun with room service. Great to see the crew at work on docking and leaving and first glimpses of a new port memorable. Bathrooms are small but adequate and there is enough cupboard space as on fly cruises 23kg of luggage is all you can take.
There is an excellent self service laundromat on board with American washers and dryers but the ironing boards are a bit small!! Read entire member review >>
Azamara Journey Sateroom 7001, a Sunset Veranda (SV), faces forward immediately under the Bridge; needless to say a great view. SVs are identical in size with other Journey veranda staterooms (the verandas are larger, but due to the slope of the ship superstructure usable space is not that much different), but are priced somewhat higher due to location. SVs are located both on the fore and the aft of the ship, and while many enjoy them for the view they do endure the worst movement during inclement seas; we enjoyed the view but also experienced one night of relatively rough seas. Both stateroom and bathroom shower were smallish for a veranda, but pleanty of storage space. Read entire member review >>
