We are a couple in our mid-60's. We must have been on over 25 cruises (NCL, Costa,Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity, Crystal, Regent). It was on a Celebrity cruise when we met a couple who said they absolutely loved Azamara. So we ...
The advantages of going on a small cruise ship is its easy to get on and off without a huge crowd. Checkin was easy so was disembarking and finding your luggage.
The crew as usual was great, helpful visible, the ship was spotless, ...
We boarded our BA flight at 9.30 and took off just after 10.00 am. We arrived in Nice at 2.30-ish and boarded the coach for the transfer to the ship. Once we arrived at the port we found that the usually well-organised embarkation was ...
We chose this cruise because because with live in Antibes and it departed and returned to Nice (no flights). This was our second Azamara Quest cruise so we either like being abused or it was pretty good (the latter)
All 'inclusive' ...
I went on this cruise with my parents, and we really loved it. Embarkation was a breeze, we took a taxi from the airport to the port in Nice, France, and about ten minutes after getting out of the taxi we were on the ship. MUCH better than ...
First cruise on Azamara, after a lot of cruises on Cunard, and one cruise on Celebrity. I enjoyed this cruise very much.
- Nice ship, with an elegant, but relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
- Excellent crew, always smiling ...
The ship,is old and tired, staterooms are adequate but bathrooms tiny.
Staff are cheerful and sort of helpful. Limited responses.
This cruise served a purpose for us, I.e. Visiting Croatia ports, and we got a good deal, however we ...
Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Venice were new travel locations for my husband and I. We always enjoy Azamara cruises. Food is great, and the size of the ship is perfect. You don't walk miles to get to things and you meet lots of ...
We stayed 3 nights in Venice before our cruise; it was not our first time to Venice so we choosed to stay at Hotel Cipriani which is located on Giudecca Island.
Embarkation was very smooth, as there were no lines; we had a Club Ocean ...
This is our second cruise on the Quest and wont be the last.
Service is second to non with all staff we encountered helpful, engaging and in good humour.
Food was great in all the restaurants we tried and there was always a good ...
We chose this cruise based on the itinerary. We wanted a cruise that included Malta, Dubrovnik and Venice. We liked the fact that many items like some drinks, gratuities were included in the cruise price. Destination Immersion is one of ...
ports of call
time in port (except Dubrovnik, deserves a full day)
STATEROOM: shower size ( well documented) . Tiny balcony.
SERVICE: Slow service in restaurants, whether a large table or for ...
Good itinery, more incluciviity, small ship, longer port stays.
This was a top notch cruise, our second with Azamara and it will not be the last.
Staff on the Quest are superb. Guest services helped us sort out an issue with our ...
Fourth cruise with Azamara (and fourth cruise ever!). Wonderful to do the Trans Atlantic and it was all that I have come to expect on Azamara. Once again the whole crew from Captain Carl down were so friendly, professional and engaged. The ...
We had been on Azamara before and pretty much knew what to expect except now it is mostly all inclusive. One of the things we really enjoyed was eating lunch in the main dining room on sea days (and we had 10 of them). I thought it would ...
This was our first cruise with Azamara but we have cruised with the following lines, Celebrity (Elite Status), NCL, HAL & Princess.
Azamara advertises as a luxury cruise line but we feel they fall short with making this claim.
Wish there were a way to rate 3 1/2 as that is more appropriate. This was our third cruise on the Quest and interestingly, I would have rated the earlier two cruises higher. In fact, we were on the Quest in September and were more ...
We love days at sea and we love the smaller ship experience. It had been almost 10 years since we were last on Azamara Quest and we leapt at the opportunity to do another transatlantic on the ship. Azamara didn't disappoint. The Quest ...
This cruise was originally chosen due to its three day call in New Orleans. However only eight weeks before we were due to depart they changed the itinary to call in to Havana for two days. Fortunately they still had New Orleans as a ...
Having sailed Oceania many times wanted to try Azamara to see how they compare. We booked this cruise before they changed the itinerary mainly for Key West and New Orleans. They canceled the stop in the Yucatan and added Havana, Cuba as ...
We chose this cruise because it went to New Orleans, and Havana was a last minute addition that only enhanced the trip. All was superior and crew and managerial staff were first rate, accessible and fun to chat with. We bought 4 meals at ...
We choose this cruise when our travel agent made it available and we saw it had two overnights in New Orleans and an overnight in Havana Cuba. It was our third cruise with Azamara and our second on the Quest. We got what we expected and ...
We are a couple in our mid 60's and have about 300 days at sea with many different lines. At the present time Holland America is our favorite line.
Embarkation was very easy. Embarkation service was pleasant and friendly.
We ate in ...
A fantastic cruise, great ports, great service and wonderful amenities. The entertainment was good. Loved the fitness center and our trainer. The trainer also gave some wonderful seminars that we thoroughly enjoyed and got a lot out of ...
Small islands not visited by larger ships made this special with a smaller ship. We tendered in all ports except St. Maartin, and we were the only ship in each of these ports.
Senior staff very visible and the crew is wonderful. ...
