Never made Barcelona or our hotel due to BA cancelling our flight ,flight was re-booked for the following morning (BA putting us up in a nearby hotel ) and we made the ship .

Food was good with good choice . Service ...

Azamara was easy to book.  I booked direct because they promised to match any prices decreases. Booked our own air directly with USAirways.  We also booked our own hotels for our stays before and after the cruise.  We took taxis to/from the ship.  The cruise line charges for these services seemed too high for us.  For example, we stayed at Le Meridien in Barcelona for 179E including breakfast.  ...

Overall I'd give Azamara a solid A for this performance.  The ship itself is compact.  No feeling of hiking half way across a shopping mall to get from the food areas to activity areas.  At 30,000 tons/700 passengers/400 crew the experience is fairly intimate with an individual service feel.  The crew had a genuinely happy attitude; not just pasted on smiles.  The head of the hotel staff ...

Beautiful ship and perfect for passenger count less than 700.  Ship size allows for entry into Ports of Call not normally available with larger ships.  Such as Parking up the Seine in Rouen and Greenwich UK. Allows for easier access to the main cities in Europe, i.e. Paris and London.Cabin was a special treat due to size and spaciousness for us.  Had chances for upgrade but due to the possible ...

Several priorities led us to select this particular cruise: 1. TIMING was to coincide with our 40th anniversary. 2. DURATION since we prefer cruises of ten or more days. 3. COST, or perhaps I should say value. 4. ITINERARY, which proved to be the bonus element for this cruise.  5. CLIMATE, we would be escaping summer heat and wanted moderate to cool weather.This particular sailing of AZAMARA ...

My wife and I loved Renaissance Cruise Line ships - 678 passengers, no children under 16, no formal dining, open dining hours, 24 hour full menu access, small out of the way ports and super friendly crew. They traveled the Mediterranean and, after 9/11 went bankrupt - no one was traveling to that area of the world. They had 7 ships and 2 (the oldest two)were purchased by Celebrity and put into ...
