  3. Azamara Journey
This was the first time sailing on Azamara and we were very impressed. The cabins are very comfortable but the balcony was smaller than we expected as it was not big enough for a couple of sunbeds. Saying this the sunbeds on deck were very comfortable and there were plenty of them. The staff are absolutely fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. With drinks and gratuities included we found the price very reasonable. The food was very, very good and it was always served with a smile. French Onion Soup, Steaks, Lobster were some of our favourite meals. The entertainment was quite good and the entertainment team excelled with a great 'white evening' (the best party we have had onboard any ship and we have been on lots) and the azamazing evening was wonderful. We were disappointed the stop at Kuda Bandos was cancelled but trusted the excursion team when they suggested getting a boat to one of the islands. We decided to do this and were taken to what I can only describe as a building site, not really what you expect in the Maldives. I wish we had been given better advise as we would just have stayed onboard and saved our money. We feel as though the excursion team really let us down by not doing their homework properly. The cruise it self was around southern India, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives and apart from the Maldives we were absolutely fascinated by all the different places we visited, the traditions, the people, the buildings, even the noisy, hairraising traffic were unforgettable experiences.

Fantastic Ship
