We had used Azamara before and we liked the look of the Myanmar itinerary. We stayed in Singapore for 2 nights before boarding the ship. The embarcation procedure was diabolical. This took ages to be processed with long queues. This was not a great start, especially when compared to other small cruise ships. Azamara advertise themselves as a Luxury Small Cruise Ship line. It is anything but luxurious. After 10 days of the same basic food menus served both on deck 9 and on deck 5 we were sick to death of the options. We even tried both speciality restaurants ( which cost an extra $30pp ) and these served the same basic food as the main restaurant with a small presentation variance. Certainly nothing special and definitely not worth the supplement. The Executive Chef needs to jack himself up and provide a new menu for each day. The fact that the menu didn't change for the whole cruise is a sign of absolute laziness. Other that the dancer and singers performances on 3 nights, the rest of the entertainment was very weak. They use the assistant cruise director and director for 3 of evenings ! In today's age to only have 1 movie channel that shows an alternate film is ridiculous. The films are so out of date. They obviously want you to use their pay to view channels. The WiFi on the ship is so outdated that you simply can't download even emails. Even though we had purchased the Indulgence package which gives you the supposedly top of the range drinks, this is still extremely limited and you are forced to pay again for drinks outside this selection. To too it off, even drinks that are included in one's package are not covered if consumed out of the fridge in your cabin. How absurd. Every where you go you are constantly being asked to present your key card so that they can verify whether or not you are entitled to the service / drinks or whether you must pay additional. All in all this ship cannot be described as luxurious when compared to the other small ships we have sailed on. The shore excursions are expensive for what you get. In Phuket we were transported on a coach with a broken suspension for 2.5 hrs and then on an old delapidated water taxi for a further 2.5 hrs. We failed to visit the cashew nut factory due to time constraints In Myanmar the immigration process was appalling. We had fortunately arranged to do our own private tour to Bagan to do the hot air balloons over the temples. To do this we needed a visa. There were only about 50 people doing their own travels and it took over 2.5 hrs for our passports to be returned from the ship. The communication between the various departments of the ship is diabolical. The left had doesn't know what the right hand is doing. In all the ship has been dumbed down to the standard one expects on the large cruise lines. There is a lack of attention to detail on everything done on this ship. It is simply average - except for the price. We shall definitely be avoiding Azamara in the future. Read Less

Although it is an 39 year old ship we had a great time on board. We booked a club continent suite and the stateroom was spacious enough for two adults. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Food is, compared to Aida or MSC cruises, above standard. Entertainment is of course a little bit limited due to the size of he ship but we don’t need a rollercoaster nor a ice skating range. Two very good band are playing every evening and there is also a talented piano player and a DJ. The relatively small size of the ship is the biggest advantage. Never ever we had to wait in lines. Everything is good organized from embarkation to Disembarkation. Obviously it is easier to handle 600 guests than 4000+. Most of the guests are 50+ therefore there are no kids on board. Three negative items: First: on a 3-day stay in Myanmar we had to save water because the ship didn’t had enough water on board. The crew closed the laundry and towels need to be reused, same as the tablecloth. Would be no problem if we had been informed not just one day before the shutdown. The official excuse was that onboard examination proved that water form then onshore is not safe. But the crew stated that this happens every time when the the shimmies in Myanmar. Why they don’t inform the guests at the beginning of the cruise ore even better, dealing with this issue honestly during the booking process? Second: Azamara advertises with small ships which are able to dock close to the city. In Myanmar we were isolated on a very remote port. Driving time to downtown was 2 house one way. Third: some shore excursions are just a rip-off. If you pay 119$ for a day on the beach in a luxiourios hotel you I’ll end up in a hotel we’re you are treated as a second class. This happens to us. We paid 238$ for a day on the beach. The day on the beach was only 4h which we spent completly in the garden of the golden sands hotel in Georgetown because the beach is public with all its vendors and „beach boys“. While all the other hotels guests can have as much towels as the like we are only entitled to get one towel. Even after a kind request they refused to give us a second towel so we can cover the dirty chair. By the way: the rate for a room is 78$ per night for two guests according tot he hotels homepage.

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary as well as our good impressions of the Azamara brand from previous cruises. Clearly Azamara is no longer equal to it's number one competitor Oceania. Although the itinerary was excellent and we greatly enjoyed each and every port immensely, the direction Azamara executives are taking is not to our liking. The embarkation process was smooth and efficient. The staff professional and the ship beautiful. We prefer the small to mid size ships and have sailed on R Class ships many times. Quest is well maintained and is a joy to sail on. We only did one Azamara excursion as all our other tours were booked privately consisting of 8 to 10 fellow passengers arranged on our roll call here at Cruisecritic. All of our tours were excellent and informative.So based solely on the cities we visited the cruise was exceptional.The Far East is a special place to visit. Our cabin was just fine. Clean and comfortable. The ship is outstanding. Our disapproval of several issues made this lees than a wonderful cruise. Firstly, Azamara has chosen to discontinue providing casinos on their ships which came as a surprise to us as this differs from our previous cruises with Azamara. The casino space has been replaced with a lounge that was never very busy. Had the entertainment in the several lounges or in the Cabaret lounge been up to par this might not have bothered us as much as it did but in general the entertainment was deplorable. Dining was not as good as it was on previous Azamara cruises with overdone meats and uninspired selections at Discoveries restaurant. Prime steakhouse served perfectly tender steaks and the dinner there was a real treat. Aqualina, the Italian specialty restaurant was just fair. The pool area is comfortable and always busy during the day but since head office has decided that pleasant soft background music is no longer necessary at the pool and only twice on our cruise did they have a live band preform there, we felt the area was missing something. As on previous Azamara cruises soft piped in hits from the 70's and 80's worked beautifully. Oh and I should mention that the line does provide in cabin movies at $11.99 per movie which for the price we pay for the cruise seems to be a money grab. We have loved cruising with Azamara in the past but it is no longer the Azamara we remembered. In all probability we will choose another line to sail with in the future. Read Less
