  3. Azamara Quest
We have cruised numerous times with Azamara and with Seabourn, taking price into consideration until now have enjoyed them equally. There were many problems on this cruise, the wine list was sadly depleted with several of the wines advertised unavailable. The food was just okay, again several obvious items missing. Berries were frozen and mushy and the fruit and juices were never varied. Steaks overcooked and veal greasy and appeared deepfried. Wait staff training seems to have relaxed and waiters regularly walked away when being spoken to, reached in front of diners to retrieve dinnerware and on one occasion dropped dirty cutlery in my lap. Entertainment was dreary, bingo ball machine not working, and run through so fast by a crew member we could not understand that all enjoyment was lost. The Azamazing evening was a disgrace, held in a terminal hall with no atmosphere a few dreary performers and long lines for a caricature or calligraphy drawing. Within fifteen minutes they had run out of beer and white wine. Second half of the cruise the ship was invaded by workers filling the corridors with men, ladders, cables and removed wall and ceiling panels from morning to night making pleasant travel impossible. on the last day they pretty well dismantled most public areas making everyone feeling they couldn't wait to get rid of us. I could go on but will end by saying it is the first time I am pleased to be at the end of a cruise.

Disappointing

Cabin Review

Club Oceanview Stateroom
Cabin 06
Cabin with balcony was a bit tired but ok.
Air con did not seem to respond and had a mind of its own.
Plastic shower curtains are awful.
Cabin attendants were great and working under trying conditions.
Deck 4 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins
