Great itinerary and enjoyable cruise
Embarkation: Hong Kong
The negatives: The veranda cabins and bathrooms are looking shabby and need some major updating. Makeup/shaving magnifying mirrors are not standard. We had a pipe break that leaked water and a More cabinet door come off its hinges. Both were promptly repaired, but the ship is showing its age. The food quality was very uneven and does not match that of Oceania. Some of the main dining room food is excellent, but little is outstanding. The buffet was fine for breakfast and lunch but was less appealing for dinner, with dried out food and lackluster choices. All of the desserts were excellent. We ate at the speciality restaurant, Aquilina one time. The food was very good, but we would prefer not to have to pay the extra charge. Oceania, my comparison experience, does not charge for the specialty restaurants. Being constantly photographed was very annoying and in my opinion, cheesy. It is something Oceania does not do. My biggest complaint is about the laundry room. It is totally inadequate to accommodate all of the passengers on a 17 day cruise. Machines were broken and never repaired. Too much time was spent waiting to use the machines that were operating. The bottom line: I would cruise on Azamara again only if the itinerary was unique and especially appealing. The future plans to offer free liquor is not an incentive for me, nor is raising the price of the ship excursions or special evening events. Less
