  3. Azamara Quest
I visited India in the 60's and always wanted to take my wife to sample various ports and the Spice Cruise seemed the best option. Picking Azamara was due to their schedule, because we had only cruised once before in 2015, with another cruise company. Overall we found the Azamara Quest to be more like a country hotel rather than a ship sailing deep sea. The cabins were a good size and the shower was very good and the shower space adequate for me being 6 ft 2 inches tall Water pressure was very good.. The balcony was smaller than the island Princess (our previous cruise), but still held two chairs and a small table. The ship had just come out of dry dock and there were a couple of hic-cups such as our balcony had not being cleaned after the dry dock. Once reported the small problem was fixed very, very quickly - we went for a meal and on our return the table and chairs had been scrubbed, as was the deck. Later a sailor cleaned the varnished rail and re-varnished the whole rail, adding a second coat the following day as well as repainting the metal rails - couldn't fault the attention that we received, and we were not inconvenienced The evening entertainment for such a 'small' ship was excellent - first class visiting entertainers, and the onboard singers and dancers (who were with us the whole cruise, compared to visiting entertainers) were fabulous - many doubled as hosts for various daytime entertainment. Couldn't fault our cruise.

Met our expectations.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom
Cabin V2 6023
Smaller than expected, but the space was adequate, Amenities excellent, stowage under the double bed available for shoes, small cases etc. Large cases stowed in wardrobe. Small settee and table- desk with drawers and chair - fridge - plenty of bottled water. Consider how long you stay in your cabin, not long.
