  3. Azamara Journey
We chose this cruise for the dates and the destinations and the fact that we had traveled on the Azamara Quest 6 years previously and had really enjoyed it. We have no desire to cruise on large ships with thousands of passengers, so Azamara fits the bill, also the ability to get into smaller ports and not always have to tender appeals to us. In between the two Azamara cruises we have cruised on Ociania Riviera, also in the Med, bigger ship so bigger bathrooms and fabulous food however I have to say Azamara Journey was just as good regarding the food, could not fault it. Best of all the fabulous crew, so very friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. We ate in all the restaurants and all were fabulous, I guess if I had to choose Acqualina would be the favourite, however the food everywhere was superb as was the wine. Once again being a smaller ship you can not expect Broadway productions, but we got them ! the entertainment was superb, the dancers and singers great lead by the Azamazing Eric, what a great entertainer he is so polished and talented and a really friendly man with a great sense of humour ... Loved it all ... nothing to complain about ... Would I cruise with Azamara again ? In a heartbeat, I can't comment on the shore excursions as we did not do any, we just like to get off the boat and do our own thing, then come back to the wonderful haven that the Journey provided. The Azamazing evening that the ship provided in Monaco was incredible, must be the best acrobatic show ever ... what a gift ... Thank you Azamara for it all can't wait to see you again.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Nice colouring in the decor, bed really comfortable, bed linen fabulous, cabin cleaned early and efficiently as soon as we vacated for breakfast. The only disappointment is the size of the bathroom,especially the shower cubical, however I realise that is not something that can be fixed easily.
