We are a couple in our early sixties. Choose a Caribbean cruise every year for the weather and ports. This was our 3rd Azamara cruise. We choose small luxury lines.
We were in N2 category.
As in past excursions were canceled for lack of participants. If there is something you really must do then best to do it as independent.
Tender service was good.
Hotel mng Philip was good.
Dining...we had lunch at buffet every day. Food quality was good, not super. Would have liked to see more seafood,sushi vs. mixed salads with mayo. Oceania and Regent do shrimp cocktail, oysters etc, not Azamara.
Panini and sandwich station usually crowded. Sea day when they were make no Ruben sandwich they ran out of bread, sauerkraut.
Pool service ok but sometimes had to wait 20 min. for someone to come by and offer a drink.
Dinner... we ate in one of the 2 specialty restaurants every night. Service there was good but slow on occasion. The main reason we are 'jumping ship' next year is that the menu is the same every night ....boring! We did not go to MDR because heard service there is VERY slow. Would have liked to see menu changed every couple of days.
We had room service every morning for breakfast. It was good.
Butler seemed very rushed, wonder how many cabins he was serving, he is either overworked or it was his personality...not sure.
Most people in their 70’s and 80’s. all of the music around ship played to this age range.
Spa services were good but would have liked a 'relaxation area' to wait while in bathrobe...not a bench at entrance.
Went to disco one night...DJ,music and fun evening.
White night party on deck always fun, wished they did that more than once.
Large lovely suite. We had a larger shower and no bathtub. Glass door into shower was difficult to open and close due to plastic stripping which prevents water from leaving shower. Towels thick and soft. Hooks needed throughout cabin so bring your own. Cabin quiet except for one morning when they were setting up BBQ directly above us. Bed extremely comfy.
Sailing the leeward coast....excellent!
Tropical day sails...superb!
Grand case, motored 5 min to snorkel spot for one hour.
Kekoa sailing...snorkeling was fair, catamaran great, crew terrific.
Water clarity great, fish not teaming
