Cabin: Club Veranda Stateroom

We chose this cruise because we hoped it would be more luxurious, being the highest quality line that Royal Caribbean became but it was not.

I would describe this as better than Celebrity (also RC) but not on par with Seaborne or other similar ships.

The food was decent. The speciality restaurants were not worth the money. The best place we ate was the Patio which was outside. A small menu but you can bring out food from the Cafe, which was decent. My main issue is that dinner ends early and you can’t get food after 9:30 other than room service. Many other cruise lines have a later night option. That would have been nice (if not expected).

Hi AdamCR, it sounds like we missed the mark with you on this cruise, and for that I apologize. But now that you've sailed once with Azamara, maybe you'll come back and give us a second...

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom

Cabin V2

Small! Bathroom is way too small. If you are older or slightly larger person, the shower is way too tight. For the money, upgrade to the suite. Easy decision. This room is opposite the housekeeping service door. You hear the door constantly. Stay away from this room for that reason alone.
