Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

After four years we returned to Azamara because of the route - from Piraeus to Dubai through the Suez Canal and Red Sea. It actually appeared as good value for money and we had loved Azamara in the past.

We flew to Athens a day early as exploring the city is pleasant in the October temperatures. Boarding was simple on the Saturday although one suitcase was delivered to the wrong cabin and it took time to get more than the 'it is coming' response.

The ship is looking good and well cared for with ongoing cleaning and painting etc.

Cabin Review

Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

Cabin VX

Refurbishment has improved the experience and the interactive slim television is a good improvement. The shower remains the Achilles Heel of this class of ship.
