Another Great Azamara Adventure

Review for Azamara Quest to Australia & New Zealand

We sailed for 14 days from Sydney to Auckland. There was a lot of confusion about which port we would depart from Sydney. Was very confusing up until almost the last minute as the original plan seemed to have been the Overseas Cruise Terminal - located near Circular Quay at the Rocks. Instead we left from White Bay Cruise Terminal. (Apparently they've had alot of confusion as we later learned that ...

Recently back from my second Azamara voyage, both on the Quest. Overall this Sydney to Auckland cruise was excellent with some notable improvements, however there are areas which continue to disappoint. On the positive side, I found the ship to be spotless and the crew genuinely friendly. Most notable was the main restaurant, Discoveries. I was greeted with a friendly smile and often assigned ...

The itinerary was perfect to explore Tasmania, South New Zealand and North New Zealand. The Journey's crew from officers to room attendants are the very best of any line we have traveled on and are the Journey's #1 asset! The only problem is the ship's age. At 18 years old the Journey's cabins and "bathrooms" are very very small by new ship standards and detracts from the overall experience. ...

Sydney to Auckland, Average at Best

Sydney to Auckland, Feb18. First impressions were excellent, the online check in made things an absolute breeze, we were onboard the ship by 1pm, which gave us plenty of time to become familiar with her. The Journey is a lovely well maintained ship, very clean. Our cabin on Deck 4 was located midship starboard side around 5 cabins down from the Starboard Gangway but was extremely quiet ...

Spectacular 'Journey' to New Zealand

This was our second Azamara cruise (with a third booked). We like the size of the ship (650 passengers), the quality of food and excellent service from staff, the all-inclusive approach (good choice of included wines and drinks) and the itineraries - specifically, the overnight stays in several ports (Hobart, Dunedin and Napier) keeps the pace just right (not rushing from port to port). Captain ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, plus friends had recommended the Azamara Journey. We loved the lack of formality - no dressing up for dinner or jackets required for the men. The staff were friendly and helpful, service was excellent. The food was good - we really enjoyed Prime C but were disappointed with Aqualina. The house wine was average at best. Unable to comment on the ...

We enjoyed our first sailing on the Journey. We have sailed six times on the Quest and enjoyed every single cruise. Trip went well from embarkation even with the ship completely booked it never felt crowded. The guest speaker was outstanding but we would have liked to have additional speakers that gave us history on the areas we were visiting. Also, expected info on port visits prior to ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We were originally planning a driving holiday to New Zealand in February but when this cruise popped up in an email from our travel agent it seemed a great opportunity. We were attracted by the size of the ship and the inclusions. It was a bit disappointing that we did not leave from the Overseas Cruise Terminal but instead from White Bay but embarkation was smooth. We thoroughly enjoyed the 14 ...

The ship was comfortable, our cabin was kept fresh and clean and had ample storage, we enjoyed diverse excursions and activities (unhosted knitting group was great!), the food was stellar, and the crew never cease to amaze me with friendly greetings after not seeing some of them in a couple of years. It was personal and lovely. Azamara is not a child-oriented cruise line. To socialize expect ...

A great cruise despite Debbie

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

This was our first Azamara experience and our first visit to Australia. Fortunately we had hit some of the must do experiences before boarding (barrier reef, kola cuddle, Alice Springs) so our itinerary being significantly rescheduled by cyclone Debbie did not spoil our trip as much as it could have done. Embarkation at Sydney was so simple with about 650 passengers and some on board already ...
