  3. Azamara Quest
We have travelled many times on Azamara, this was so looked forward to and disappointed on so many fronts. The worst was the Amazing evening, it was dreadful.The blurb said we would be met by stilt walkers and proceed carnival style to a folkloric evening, returning to the ship singing carols. Wrong on all counts. We were left to walk to the end of the pier for a performance by a magician of dubious skills, the local high school band played for a while. Great disappointment. The whole debacle could have been accomplished on board. The entertainment was lack lustre. Having been spoiled by hands on CDs like Tony Markey and Eric de Grey , Russell Grieve was not at all up to their standard.we rarely even saw him. He would put me off booking my next Azamara cruise . No carols at the trim the tree event again as promised. To sing of Christmas we went to the non denominational midnight mass, very high church Roman Catholic. The priest had 5 bottles of communion wine, he opened one, had a glass, that was the last we saw of that. He gave out communion wafers then proceeded to eat the remainder like popcorn while a singer sang. He treated the sacred body of christ like crackerjack, sitting to one side cramming them in his mouth. It disappointed in so many ways, standards crashed in windows, cold food in Discoveries. It nust was not Christmassy.
