Azamara Pursuit

Azamara Pursuit - Azamara

Pro: Beautifully renovated ship that offers intimate spaces and lively atmosphere.

Con: Most cabins, especially the bathrooms, are small and feel tight.

Bottom Line: Perfectly sized to sail into more remote ports; the shore experience is integrated onboard.

My wife and I took this cruise as our delayed honeymoon trip. I had never cruised before but my wife had been on a few with Royal Caribbean. Azamara was recommended to us by our travel agent as we wanted to see multiple cities in Italy without having to constantly carry around our luggage but were wary of the bigger ships. The best thing about Azamara is that they stay in ports late, in multiple ports we saw other ships docked/tendered leave hours before we did. To me, this was the best benefit as our goal for the trip was to experience the culture and cities we were visiting rather than just sit on a cruise ship for 11 days. My review may be a little naive since I do not cruise often but I felt the trip deserved some feedback. We stayed in Rome a few days before the ship took off and it was well worth it to see the eternal city. Once we got to the port for embarkation we were immediately pointed in the right direction and the staff took away our bags and led us onto the ship - no delays at all. We were greeted with a drink and told that our room was ready and lunch was being served in the Windows Cafe. We opted for the Club Continent Suite as it was not much more than a regular veranda and the added benefits (butler, included specialty dining, etc.) seemed worth it. The room was fantastic and was actually larger than our hotel room we had in Rome. The bed was comfortable with a nice size veranda and bathroom. The only knock on the room is I am rather tall (over 6 feet) and the shower was too short for me to fit in comfortably, I also felt the TV did not have many choices and the wifi was extremely slow. The food was good to very good and we never went hungry. We went to Aqualina twice and found that to be the best dining experience from the food to the service. The food & beverage manager, Mustafa, was very friendly and actually helped us get our second booking in Aqualina because the night we wanted to go was full. We mostly ate breakfast in the room or in the Windows Cafe where the buffet was great for breakfast. At times I felt the options and quality was lacking in the Windows Cafe for dinner but it is a buffet and the casual dining space for the ship so no real complaints there. The timing that the restaurants are open can be annoying as in the middle of the day you may have limited options. We typically only ate breakfast and sometimes dinner on the ship as we tried to eat in the ports we were in. We are not big drinkers so we did not upgrade the drinking package and felt the complimentary drinks were adequate but not great. The complimentary wines were actually very good. My wife is vegetarian and while they have a separate menu you need to order the meals in advance which wasn't a huge deal but can be annoying when you don't want to plan that far ahead. There was not much entertainment on the ship but that didn't bother us as we are on the younger side for the cruise and tended to explore around the ports or keep to ourselves. We did find ourselves playing darts/ping pong almost every night on deck 10! The service on the ship was fantastic, the staff was all friendly and helpful and our butler was great. The only real negative I have is the excursions. We booked five through the ship and felt only two of them were worth it. Maybe it was the ones that we booked but they were typically walking tours that were rushed and not that interesting and the ship charged us over $100 for each person. We found most the time we dreading the tours and couldn't wait for them to finish so we could explore on our own. I plan on booking another cruise on Azamara as I felt the service and value was great and the late port stays were a huge bonus. The ship feels more like a boutique hotel that travels which is great for what we wanted. The only thing I would do differently is avoid the ships excursions and book tours on my own or just explore.

It was to be a luxury cruise with family members. Despite completing all pre boarding requirements it took over an hour. We were asked to show our passports four times. Poor organization! Food choices an d preparation outstanding. service tried hard but often inexperienced. Excursions few and poor. Nightly entertainment the worse I’ve seen. Disliked open seating. Never the same waiter or preferred table. best night was white night. if you don’t exercise,suntan, read,swim or drink on board nothing to do. Basic drink package with only three lousy beer choices and no liquor. Essentially second package should have been the first. Ports of call boring other than Marseille and Corsica.The ship is old and has many noises. We were moved to a balcony from an inside window due to banging noise of metal against metal. The stops at the ports were lengthy which gave more time to visit shop or eat. Read Less

Spent three nights in Nice pre-cruise then experienced the smoothest embarkation ever. Out of the taxi, luggage whisked away, straight onto the ship where check in was in the Cabaret Lounge. Got our key cards, grabbed a glass of bubbly and went to sit in the Mosaic Café. Decided to have lunch in the Windows Café and it was lovely. Really liked that you were served in the buffet rather than helped yourself, to ensure there were no illnesses like noro transferred within the first 24 hours - nice touch. Guest services were excellent helping me with wifi connectivity and upgrading to premium drinks package. Nothing was too much trouble - lovely staff! Sat in the The Living Room for a quiet half an hour waiting for our staterooms to become available. Such a lovely relaxed space - wonderful! Stateroom was lovely with everything needed. Nice touch that soft drinks and still water were available to drink free of charge out of the refrigerator. The bathroom is compact but served its purpose and, yes the shower is small but I am 6ft as is my husband and we both coped admirably. Out attendants Dina and Mark were lovely and were there if we needed them. Breakfast served in the room on time every morning and everything we requested was delivered. Service in Discoveries during the first two nights was very slow - painfully slow on the first night, but did improve slightly. The waiters however were lovely and very pleasant. Food in the restaurant was excellent. Great wine selection. We did not try any of the speciality restaurants. Some of the service from the bar staff was hit and miss and we got the impression that they weren't very happy, one in particular was quite surly when we asked for another drink. Maybe it was an off night. We felt that the entertainment wasn't great. The pianist in the Den was actually quite rude to one of the guests when she asked for multiple requests which we found shocking and to be fair, we would have asked him to stop singing he was that bad, so he should have been flattered for any requests! The group in The Living Room was great and the lady singer especially had a fab voice, however the DJ that followed should come with a government health warning as the music he played was chronic and didn't seem to cater for a younger age group (and we're over 50!!). Ports of call were great, it was just a shame that the weather wasn't in our favour. Dis-embarkation was painless, quick and we were off the ship in 5 minutes flat. Superb planning! This would be our second cruise with Azamara, the first on the Quest which was amazing and numerous cruises with Celebrity and other cruise lines, however we felt that the pricing was way off on this particular cruise. We booked 18 months in advance, however about 8 weeks prior to the cruise the same category stateroom was available for half the price. We were, however, upgraded which somewhat made up for this, but still leaves a sour taste in the mouth as this upgrade was requested rather than offered. Read Less
