  3. Azamara Quest
We'd done many Uniworld riverboat cruises and wanted to do the Panama Canal, so Azamara seemed to be a good choice. The staff on the boat was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. The food was quite good too, however the buffet dinner in Windows was marginal and the service was worse. Breakfast and lunch there were fine. The specialty dining venues were very good but I question the value of the "upcharge" and then their asking for a tip on top of that.... The ship itself was in good condition, but you could tell that they were in need of some major TLC in certain areas; our stateroom was clean and comfortable albeit a typical cramped room. The shore excursions thru Central America were interesting however there was too too much time spent on the bus, and too little time on the ground. Given the geography of CA, this is understandable and unfortunate. Azamara's website is pathetic and its interface to the shipboard system was lacking, according the Azamara folks we talked with.
