First, let me describe who we are and what we were looking for in a cruise. We are two Americans in our early 40s, looking for a romantic/tropical vacation (without kiddos, of course). We enjoy food and wine, relaxing on the beach and a little bit of sight seeing. The 7-day Western Mediterranean cruise aboard the Azamara Quest was perfect for our needs.

The ship’s small size allowed us to get into ports like Ibiza and Minorca that larger ships would either have to tender in, or dock at a more remote location and bus to the city center. In 7 days, there were only 2-3 times the boat ever felt even remotely crowded. We were always able to find loungers by the pool, and never waited for a two-top in any of the dining rooms. There were a few small children aboard (maybe a dozen under the age of 10), but generally they did not intrude our “escape” from our own kids. The ship is in good condition, and the crew does a great job of constantly cleaning and organizing behind the passengers. Each day felt like a new ship!

The food and beverage was excellent. Not “fancy” by any means, but a large variety of high quality ingredients, prepared well. And many were locally sourced. Most of the included wines were from Italy, Spain, and France...the three countries of our cruise. As far as food, we dined on local cheeses and tomatoes from Italy, avocado from Spain, and seafood from France, just as an example. They served tapas (appropriate for a cruise departing from Barcelona) every evening in the Cabaret Lounge; perfect afternoon snack with a glass of wine to tide us over until dinner! The servers were very competent, but never pushy or intrusive...just what we were looking for in a romantic getaway.

Cabin Review

Club Interior Stateroom

Cabin 10

Great size for two adults. We didn’t spend much time in our interior cabin. Instead, we were out and about, enjoying the pool and public areas. As many reviewers have posted, the shower is a bit small, but nothing dramatic. I utilized the locker room to shower and change in the evening, giving my spouse a little space to get ready for dinner. The coffee table was a little awkward, making the couch difficult to use if anyone else was walking around the cabin. PLENTY of storage space for hanging clothes and in drawers. We were on deck 7; perfect location as most of the common spaces are two up on 9 (pool, windows cafe, spa/fitness) and two down on 5 (restaurants, casino, lounge). There were plenty of US and European outlets in the cabin, but not by bedside. There is an umbrella in the closet...remember to check the weather of your excursion destinations before you leave (we learned the hard way).
