Great Cruise Experience

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
We had been on the Oceania Regatta in 2007 and the Azamara Quest in 2008, but our recent cruises have all been on larger ships (from 2000-6000 passengers). When we booked the Quest this time, we were wondering whether we would enjoy the over-all experience on the small ship after all the entertainment and activities of the big ships. We needn't have been concerned. Our 12 days on the Quest wound up ranking as one of our best trips ever.

The ship is well-maintained and comfortable, and the service was excellent. The entertainment and Cruise Director were very good. We were there for Captain Jose's first cruise, and he was terrific. All the officers were 'out and about' and very approachable. Captain Jose was everywhere! When a section of the ship had a temporary black-out, he kept us informed of the progress continuously. The electrical problem affected the main kitchen, so the entire dining room was moved to the pool deck... tables, chairs, tablecloths, etc. and an open-air More barbecue was set up in just a couple of hours. The lobster tails, lamb chops, filet mignon, chicken and all the other planned menu items were cooked to perfection on charcoal grills.

The entire staff was friendly and professional. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. We didn't go to the specialty restaurants because our meals in the dining room were excellent. Azamara knows how to handle the "Open dining" (not true on some other lines) so there was never a long wait even though there were no reservations.

We highly recommend Azamara and would sail with her again in the future. Unfortunately, the itineraries don't bring the Azamara ships back to Florida often enough, and I don't want to fly to an embarkation point. Less

Cabin review: 6067

The cabin was in a convenient location. It was quiet and clean. The mattress was good. Our room steward provided everything we requested.
