Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin: Club Veranda Stateroom

As Journey was newly out of dry dock, there were some minor snagging issues with unfinished work but nothing to spoil the cruise. In the stateroom these were quickly rectified once pointed out.

Caldera is not really geared for passengers on cruise ships so initially it looked a bit disorganised at the port, but in fact we were on board in 40 minutes with nothing lost.

As this was a first time on Azamara (normally sail Celebrity) I cannot say how much improvement has been done to the ship but she looked splendid and the crew are helpful and friendly from the Master down.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom

Cabin V1

This is a new cabin, previous a crew one (the Cruise director's) they have cut a new hole in the side fof a balcony and after they had fitted the missing light, wired in the fridge and finished installing the shelves it was fine. Not the largest on the high seas, particularly the shower / WC which does seem small compared to those on Celebrity. This is presumably a reflection of both the age of the ship and it's overall size.

The bed was really comfy and the furniture on the balcony much better quality than we normal.
