This cruise was our 3 and 4th (back to back) on Azamara. We have taken 30-40 cruises and generally focus on Celebrity and have also done an occasional Oceania. Overall we rate Azamara nearly equal to Oceania. with the biggest difference being that Oceania does not charge for premium restaurants but does for drinks. We were quite happy with the food on Azamara and prefer to have access to wine and cocktails. Overall we were very happy with the daily wine selection. Mix drinks were generous and well made.
We had two Azamara evenings. One in Liverpool was fabulous the one in France not so much but the overall idea was very welcome.
Entertainment was decent for a smaller ship but no great shakes. Visibility of the captain was a nice addition. We have never been able to have a captain come table to table at events. This was a nice touch.
