Sail Date: Jun 2017
Cabin: Club Continent Suite

Our cruise from Hamburg to Copenhagen was our second with Azamara and represented superb 'value for money'. We had a suite on the 8th deck which was spacious, clean and very comfortable with friendly Butler service from Croox.

The food was first class in all restaurants with friendly efficient service from the staff. The 'speciality' restaurants, Prime C & Aqualina (which we were entitled to use without 'supplement' as we were in a suite) were as good as any first class haute cuisine restaurant. We did not use many of the facilities on board - the WiFi (we had a free allowance as occupants of a suite) and the internet was 'patchy' but we were in the Norwegian fjords where reception is difficult. The shows were very good for such a small ship (700) as was the 'Azamazing evening' which was a Grieg concert in Bergen.

We went of two of the ships tours (Flam Railway & North Cape - both well worthwhile) but they were very expensive. In a number of places we chose to 'do our own thing' which was much more cost effective.

Cabin Review

Club Continent Suite

Cabin N2

Clean,comfortable & well appointed - enough room for two with an adequate bath/shower facility. The bed was comfortable even for one with a very bad back!

Port Reviews

Bergen

Easy to get around 'on your own' and see much of what there is at a lower cost than the ships tours.

Tromso

Not very interesting

Olden

Did our own thing with a 1 hour bus Glacier tour - we were miles from the glacier - an expensive failure!

Stavanger

Did our own thing and wandered around the dock area, the Old Town and the Cathedral - an attractive city.
