Our overall cruise experience was excellent. The Azamara ships, although older and sometimes a little tattered are like a great old cashmere sweater, comfortable and great feeling. The effort of the crew from the captain to our butler, Eyup, and our steward, Girlie, was first class in every way. What sets Azamara apart is that they TRY harder than everyone else. One of the most impressive things was the immediate response to our mid cruise evaluation. I listed 3 small items that neede attention. They were answered and dealt with within an hour. The food, overall was excellent. All meals at either Prime C or Aqualina were as expected with excellent service. Some of the lunch choices for Windows buffet were interesting but well prepared. The entertainment, for such a small ship, was very good, especially Jackie Scott. White Night, as always was a blast. Russ and the band and Dancers put on a fun show. Shore excursions were good. The execution, except for the tender issue(see below) was flawless. The lectures, especially by Phil Smart, were informative and very well attended. Phil was a hit on the ship. A few very small recommended corrections The coffe a breakfast was terrible. It needs to be changed. Ever hear of Starbucks? There is not enough seating in Windows. I understand that this issue will be addressed with the remodel. The wine packages need adjusting and refining. The tenders in very hot weather were hot and stuffy. They need to be altered with either fans , more Windows or air conditioning or all the above. Again, overall, a great cruise. It's and old small ship that is beautifully cared for. If you want new and shiney and big with a lot of kilts and glamor, this probably isn't for you. If you want to see great places and make lifelong friends in a great atmosphere. Welcome aboard!

Cabin Review

Club Continent Suite
Cabin N2 8069
We were upgraded to this suite. It was what we expected. The remodel will take care of the insuffencies.The real bonus was we got Eyup and Girlie. If we go on Azamara Quest again, we will pay extra to get these 2 professionals.
