Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Club Veranda Stateroom

We (family of 4 including parents and 2 adult children) were on the Journey in May 2018 for the Greek Islands to Italy 8-day cruise. We chose this cruise as we had previously done this itinerary, and wanted to return with our children as adults. We were blessed with wonderful weather and we were very happy with the ports. This was our second cruise with Azamara

We were very happy with the service and the attention we received from the crew. The cabin stewards, the bar personnel and the waitstaff were friendly, fun and very accommodating. We requested the same waiter every night in Discoveries and an effort was made in order to make this work for us. The senior staff was very visible and interactive, which I very much appreciate. They really seem to love their jobs and take very seriously their obligation to take care of their guests.

Unlike some previous reviewers, we quite enjoyed the food on board! We found there to be great variety both at the buffet and in Discoveries, and were very happy with our selections; we liked the different chef’s recommendations as well as the locally flavored dishes (fresh tuna was offered on a few nights and was delicious every time!). We had a special dinner for LCV members which was excellent. 3 of the 4 of us drank the “house” wines—we are casual wine drinkers and could always find one of the 6 available (2 whites, 2 reds, 1 rose, 1 sparkling) which satisfied us each day.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom

Cabin V3

Veranda cabins are known to be on the small side, and the bathrooms are quite small. Storage in the cabin overall is adequate but it is pretty limited in the bathroom. This is a known limitation on the Azamara ships, so one has to go into the journey with this in mind. Fresh fruit and small chocolate treats are delivered to the rooms daily. This stateroom is on portside aft, and there are no complaints about this room in particular--not noisy at all. There was some movement felt on one particularly rocky evening
