Our second cruise on Azamara Quest within 6 months was not disappointing. We had been "Azamazed" in October 2013 when we took the Nice to Rome cruise and booked the Nice to Rome cruise again for our 10th wedding anniversary in April. We had the joy of meeting up with friends made on our first cruise who had also enjoyed thier first experience so much they decided to repeat it. There were 4 different ports of call so it was definately a different cruise. The delight of this ship is the crew headed up by Captain Carl who seems to instill his enthusiasm in being captain of his lovely ship to all the crew. There is a heartfelt welcome and desire to please throughout the ship's company. Our butler Ravin and steward Vasily were wonderful. They made our special day more special with a personalised card, balloons in our room and a champagne fountain for us and our guests. THe weather was not so kind to us as it was too breezy for the White Nights in Olbia to be quite as wonderful as the evening off Amalfi in October. For those of us who braved it wrapped in the ships tartan rugs it could have been a Burn's Night. It was still fun and the crew go to such effort to lay out the dining room al fresco around the pool side. The wind and swell meant that our tender port of Bonifacio was not an option but Captain Carl made arrangements for us to berth in Porto Vecchio which turned out to be a delightful alternative and allowed those who were going to visit Bonifacio on the tours to get there as it was only 18 km away. Azamara is a relaxed shipping line with excellent food and service. The speciality restaurants are worth the small premium and if you have an early dinner for sail away you have a brilliant panorama as you sip your aperitif. We love Oceania and think that the food is better on their line but they are the gold standard for food at sea.We will be sailing on their Nautica in June which is the same R class ship so we will be interested to compare how the 2 lines work the same ship. We have only travelled on Marina and enjoyed the extra space in the staterooms and spa and extra restaurants. However we love the ambiance of the smaller ships and have been wooed by the wonderful officers and crews on Quest. We have booked a further cruise on Quest's sister ship Journey next year so we would recommend AZAMARA to anyone.

Cabin Review

Cabin 8040
Excellent midship cabin. Quiet and generously sized with a bath. Plenty of storage space. However as it is a small ship it is only equivalent to a standard balcony cabin on Oceania's Marina.
