Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Club Continent Suite

We have sailed on Azamara before, so its clear that they offer a product that we value.

1/ An example of their service: at embarkation in Istanbul it was raining. Evaluating the next day's forecast, Captain Magnus decided, I'm certain with headquarters' approval, to switch the first 2 ports so as to maximize our chance of good weather. This tactic worked perfectly, although I'm positive it entailed extra travel time and thus cost.

2/ In an improvement over previous cruises, there is a focus, both in the MDR and Windows Cafe, on aiding those with food allergies. For example, in Windows dishes without common triggers are labelled to allow better choice.

Cabin Review

Club Continent Suite

Cabin N2

Wonderful stateroom. The extra space was appreciated. That, and the allotted free Wifi minutes, were a highlight.

Port Reviews

Santorini

Wonderful guide and an excellent archaeologic site.

Istanbul

We love Istanbul, but concerns security led us to go straight to the ship. Great views from there.

Kusadasi

Terrific excursion, including a guide who helped excavate the site. The Terrace Houses are a highlight.

Rhodes

We wandered on our own, using Rick Steves's Guide.

Mykonos

Wandered on our own and finished our shopping here.
