Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Club Veranda Stateroom

We prior had cruises with the Quest, and had a desire to see a Grand Prix. But, Azamara is engaging in gouging their guests. The price of the Grand Prix excursion was $299.00 pp for two days admission. We had to walk to the event ourselves, and Azamara issued us tickets which showed a price of 66 euros ($66.00) This is ticket scalping. We complained onboard, and a month later(after research) customer relations said that they would refund $100 pp. I wanted $200.00 pp back because we could have bought the tickets that day for the 66 euros. Good hospitality relations would have informed us of the true price and availability during the cruise.

Before the cruise we wanted to stay one night in Rome, and Azamara wanted $600.00 pp for a one night hotel stay and transfers from the airport and Civitavecchia, the embarkation port. We found our own accommodation.

The ebrochure showed Taomina as a port, but Azamara changed it to Giardina Naxos, and blithely told us that we could get a taxi to Taormina for $30.00 The first time I was on the Quest in 2012, we were tendered then shuttled to Taormina.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom

Cabin V1

I found it adequate, my husband had issues with the shower, and the shower curtain. The cabin had a king sized bed and a small sitting area. The veranda fit a table and two chairs. This room was larger than the standard stateroom.

Port Reviews

Malta (Valletta)

Did our own tour to the Museum, catherderal, Poco Villa. St Paul's Church. Not enough time to do it all.

Sardinia

Walked in town, best prices for shopping. Nothing much to see in Oblia.

Corsica (Ajaccio)

Did our own tour in ajaccio,, Napoleon's house is very interesting, The local market was there, and also a must see if possible.

Positano (Amalfi)

We had a private driver to Positnao and Ravello. Ravello is fascinating.
