Sail Date: Jul 2017

We decided to do this cruise although we have one booked for September on the same ship. We wanted to visit this area and it seemed an opportunity we did not want to miss when we saw it when on board late last year.

I admit we are devoted to Azamara. We were disappointed in the lectures this time and sometimes activities were scheduled at the same time - which was disappointing.

The trip was to small ports - some people did not seem to realise that it was only villages that we were visiting and seemed to expect bigger places to explore.

Response from BonnieM, CBO - Azamara Club Cruises

Thank you for the review manc. Being able to visit off-the-beaten-track villages is one of the benefits of sailing on a smaller ship like Azamara Journey. We look forward to welcoming you...

Port Reviews


Busy tourist spot. Shops and cafes. Tender port but no problems on getting a ride there and back - no queues.

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

Lovely little town with friendly people. Weather was prefect - best day of the summer so far.


Just walked around. Cool and drizzle but not unpleasant. Numerous shops and cafes to go into and museums and botanical gardens to visit.


Hired a car and did our own thing. Visited Geyser and frozen lake and explored the countryside as well as getting to the Blue Lagoon when the weather was dreadful. Even in dreadful weather the small fishing villages were interesting and all the people helpful and friendly.

Torshavn (Faroe Islands)

Unfortunately it was Sunday so very little open. Atrocious weather in the morning defeated us after a few minutes. Went back into town later in the day and a few things were open but tended to close at 4 pm. Worth a visit if you want to say you have been to the Faroes


We stayed there for 4 days as we had done a couple of years ago before embarking on a Baltic Cruise.

Great town to walk around. Plenty to see. Would recommend the Hotel Phoenix for its convenient location
