Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2009

We have cruised with Celebrity and Azamara before. This was our second cruise vacation on the Journey. We recommended the cruise to six friends and we managed to convince them to join us on this 14 day western Med. cruise from Copenhagen to Barcelona. They all had a wonderful time (two of them are very experienced cruises, and the other four are "green-beans" to cruising.

The Journey really stands out in its Food and Beverages department. Scott and Lisa "Brownie" and their teams are doing an excellent job in delivering an miraculous food experience. The staff on the Journey do not seem to know the word "no". They will always try to accommodate requests, even rather unreasonable ones. We requested Beef Wellington one night, and Lisa prepared it very well, we later on became known as the "Wellingtons". We had Escargot and roasted foie gras about 5 nights... No problems...

We cannot compare the standard of the F&B department to what we experienced in May. This is perhaps slight worrying, as Azamara may be struggling with delivering consistency over time.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1A

7108- No complaints.

6030- Obstructed view- but no real obstruction as there is no lifeboat covering the window. Cabin appear to be smaller than the regular inside and ocean view cabins as it did not have a sofa or table.

Port Reviews


Take one of the boats to the islands outside of the bay of Vigo. Beautiful sand beaches. 25-30 minutes.
