  3. Azamara Journey
Chosen based upon past history. Entertainment was very good in terms of cruise director and entertainment group. Service and friendliness of staff was excellent. Great relationship between cruise director and captain. Food was good but not exceptional, including the specialty restaurants. Staff was friendly and outgoing. No issues at all with embarkation and debarkation. Some of the ship excursions were more expensive than other shore excursion alternatives. Hard to keep all at the same level. Porto Empedocle was a total bust as a stopping point. Unless you wanted to take in ruins, there was not much of interest in this port. Cruise Critic reception was good and well organized - much better than many expected. Lecturer was hit and miss - some people liked the lectures, some found them less than enlightening. Refurbishment of the ship was very much a success - public rooms, staterooms and all other areas were much more open and inviting than before. Lightening up of the colour schemes game a much 'larger' impression of the ship in general. Very successful redo by the Azamara team.

Overall impression - ship is greatly improved, itinerary could do with work.
