We sailed on the Journey for a Panama Canal transit and it was wonderful! It was our first time on Azamara. I was a little nervous as it was "a luxury line" and we are just two unassuming retired folks. We found our fellow passengers down-to-earth and unpretentious.
The cruise was very smooth. I usually have difficulty with my balance when I get off a ship but I haven't experienced that this time.
The staff on the Journey all seemed very friendly and helpful. The wait staff in the Main Dining Room and in Windows Cafe were very attentive and even checked when we had special requests from what was on the menu!
The cabin itself is a little small but you don't really spend a lot of time in it. We did pick a cabin with obstructed view but the view was still pretty good. We had a straight view to the outside and the obstruction was mainly to the side. We didn't hear much noise from outside the cabin, except the one day we tendered, but it didn't bother me.
