Long time cruiser but first with Azamara.
The ship was undergoing an annual Coast Guard Inspection so we were delayed embarkation until 12:30. We arrived at that time and our wait was 15 minutes. Check in went smoothly. Our bags, however, were not delivered until after 4 PM and talking to the crew we found that this was normal performance for them. Other cruise lines bring your bags much sooner.
High points of the ship and cruise: Fantastic lunches and buffets. Incredible White Night and Officer's Buffet on deck. The Azamazing Evening in St. Martin was excellent. Overall food quality was very good. Very friendly staff and officers. The ship was just remodeled and looked great. There were rust spots they missed but overall it is excellent. The entertainment was also well above average, excellent musicians and Lecturers.
Cabin was too small for us. Most people would find it acceptable but we needed more space and were unhappy with this one. The bathroom was tiny and some of the shelves were directly above the toilet, had to be careful to close the lid or risk dropping things into the toilet. Shower was so small the curtain was always brushing into me.
