This was our first smaller cruise experience and we were extremely impressed! Azamara Crew staff was superb- couldn’t be more accommodating and friendly!! Food was fantastic!! I have cruised (10 total) w/ Royal Carribean, Carnival, Princess and nothing compared to the quality on this ship. (we are tough connoisseurs) We never felt the need to eat at the specialty restaurants because the food ...

Good for ports; less so for dining.

If you are mainly cruising to visit destinations, Azamara may be a good choice. Pursuit was small enough directly reach hotspots of ports. The ship was elegantly decorated, with substantially all-inclusive fares. However, those who like ships with lots of activities and a wide variety of dining options should probably avoid this ship. The sedate atmosphere will not be for everyone, and food ...

We are fairly experienced "cruisers" having been on 8 cruises with Viking, four with Norwegian, and one each on Holland America and UniWorld. Obviously, Viking is our "go to" cruise line (we have three more ocean and two river cruises booked through the spring of 2026). We chose this Azamara cruise because the itinerary offered stops that weren't readily available. This was a repositioning cruise, ...

This Was Not Enjoyable Cruising

We spent 18 nights aboard Pursuit from Cape Town to Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. The ship had a serious gastrointestinal infection aboard that was badly mishandled by Pursuit's crew. In the weeks since our disembarkation social media is reporting the gastrointestinal issues were related to South African bottled water, and after that water supply was replaced by Spanish water all returned to normal. ...

The Azamara Pursuit provides a good, solid, mid-market/premium experience. Embarkation was almost too fast and efficient. The staff had us aboard the ship, being hustled to the safety briefing. before we knew it. We felt we missed out on the joy of arriving and embarking on a new cruise adventure. The ship is comfortable and well maintained, the crew is friendly and helpful. The number of ...

We have cruised with half a dozen different lines but this was our first with Azamara and we were looking forward very much to joining them. As fairly experienced cruisers we don’t often use ships shore excursions because they are often disappointing and overpriced, however on this Azamara cruise my partner and I took two shore excursions, both of which were pretty disastrous. The first was to ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We booked three back to back cruises on Azamara Pursuit, 8 February Cape Town to Cape Town, 20 February Cape Town to Gran Canaria and 9 March Gran Canaria to Lisbon. When we boarded the ship, the swimming pool, whirlpools and self service laundry were closed and there was no self service in the buffet. The captain said this was because Norovirus had been present on the previous cruise and these ...

We chose this cruise as a celebration for my partner's special birthday. A couple of hours before boarding we found out that the ship had a very bad problem with Norovirus and was in a red state of alert. We were not advised of this by Azamara but discovered this on social media. We were not given the option not to board so would lose our money if we didnt. The embarkation process was chaotic ...

Azamara Pursuit - January 2024 – South Africa What a terrible company it is now it has been taken over. I have never come across such terrible customer care. We will never travel with them again. Buyer beware. 1. I booked a cruise to South Africa visiting 6 ports. We wanted to see as much of South Africa as we could and chose them because their marketing. We know that cruises are subject ...

Dealing with Azamara precruise was a nightmare. They actually "lost" one of our bookings and don't get me started on their website!! We were therefore very pleasantly surprised at how well our cruise went. The fact that there were less than 400 passengers may have helped but everything from embarkation on was so easy. Never had to queue for anything. We did ask our cabin attendant to remove ...
