Another Great Azamara Cruise

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
My wife and I have been on 14/15 cruises with different cruise lines and Azamara comes out top all of the time. We have just returned from a cruise which included Sorrento, Taormina Sicily, Valletta, Santorini and Athens on Journey. We booked through Iglu cruise again and again everything went according to plan. Flying from Heathrow Terminal 5 into Rome where we were taken to the cruise terminal. Boarding was so quick and easy in no time we were have lunch on board. No queues, no fuss and before long we were unpacking and getting ready for dinner. The whole experience on board for the next seven days was perfect for us. The places we visited were stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days in Sorrento.

Taormina we found breathtaking and the cruise into Valletta likewise.

There was an issue with the repositioning of the TV in our room but it was dealt with efficiently and quickly. We had an ocean view room which we found very comfortable. Evening meals we took in More the MDR , breakfast and lunch in Windows Cafe and in both places we found the food excellent and the service impeccable at all times.

Our third cruise with Azamara and while we were on board booked for 26th. May on Quest 2014 to the Mediteranean which includes Nice, Monte Carlo, Pisa, Florence. We have done all of this before but the experience of being with Azamara is so good we really dont mind where we go.

Overall we like a quiet time on board our cruises. Neither of us drinks alcohol but those who do are well catered for. We rarely go to the shows or take excursions. We like the quality of the 5 star hotel and although younger people may find this boring it suits us down to the ground. Look forward to seeing you on future cruises Less

Cabin review: 054012 Club Oceanview Stateroom

Room 3021 small circular window. Very small. Tiny closet. We changed to room 4012 large square window larger closet much better and very adequate. No problem with noise in either cabin.
