AZAMARA CRUISING: Azamara Quest Cruise Review by Kirkhangates
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
It was the most expensive, yet the worst in terms of entertainment and food, of our four winter cruises, everything done as cheaply as possible. The food in the main dining room, was a step down in quality from Celebrity, instead of being the expected step up. The entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge (no theatre) was made up of solo recitals, a trombone player (twice) a classical pianist, a classical singer, a classical violinist, one night a screen showing 2 hours live of the American Academy Awards(and a comedian who was o.k.) In every case the one artist did the whole show, no variety. On every Caribbean cruise I have been on previously, there has been a steel band playing on deck, especially at parties and sailaways. On the Azamara Quest a trio consisting of keyboard, drummer and a girl singer\guitarist who could not play or sing. The same trio played most nights in the only other music lounge, The Looking Glass, which was cold and lacking in atmosphere, due to the fact that there was nobody in the place. In the present format, Azamara will not survive. They may have a high ratio of reservations at the moment, due to people trying out a new concept, but most people I spoke to onboard, will not be re-booking. Less
First class, but NOT pretentio...
Great itinerary on a smaller s...
