Azamara Quest Cruise Review by leslie99

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Club Continent Suite

Picked the cruise because of the itinerary. Best part of the voyage was the entertainment -- 4 young opera signers, Amazing night in Dubrovnik, and Captain Magnus. Our cabin, a suite 8043 was much smaller than what we are used to on other lines. Azamara advertises the suites include complimentary dining in Prime C and Aqualina. We were traveling with two other couples also in suites. It was next to impossible to get dining reservations. Our "butler" told us to speak to the manager of those dining rooms. He was very unhelpful. We did manage to eat in Prime C once and Aqualina twice. Service in Agualina was poor and food mediocre. There was nothing special about food or service in Prime C.

The included spirits and wines on the ship ranged from drinkable to not. We were constantly "encouraged" to purchase upgrade packages. Had to pay extra to have a glass of Chianti in Aqualina the Italian restaurant. Ridiculous!

Enrichment lectures were scheduled for 8:15 pm when everyone was dining.

The ship seemed understaffed, especially in all the food venues. . Only really great service was from our cabin attendants.

Overall value of cruise was poor. We sailed on the RSSC Explorer earlier in the year -- had a very large suite, absolutely everything was included. Cost was $95 per per/per day less than this cruise. And that was before we had to pay for the shore excursions, wine, etc. on Azamara. Shore excursions ranged from terrible in Rijeka (why does Azamara not use the microphone/ear buds other lines use) to excellent in some other ports.

Will not sail with Azamara again.

Cabin Review

Club Continent Suite
Cabin N1 8043

Very small for a suite. Very little closet and drawer space. Had to leave one suitcase out for the whole cruise. Bed and chairs were comfortable. Very small bathroom with small shower.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Best tour of cruise. Shopping with chef in morning, wine tasting with sommelier in afternoon and special dinner on board. Only really great meal we had onboard.
