Been on the Quest twice 2016 so was looking forward to sail on this " New" ship. Don't know where the other reviewer's comments about aloof crew came about but I found them all extremely friendly and approachable and all the wait staff eager to please. It must be difficult to staff up a new ship and mould them into the Azamara way, I believe there was only 20% previous Azamarans on board.
I wont go in to endless drivel about minor misnomers with the ship, yes there are things which I didn't care for and some what I preferred for over the quest, the Den being one, its a much better lounge now they have removed the casino, but the pianist plays far too loud as if to say I'm here listen to me. I thought the lack of tables and chairs on pool deck near the bar poor nowhere to sit and sip a cocktail, also the sun loungers were hard with no pads as previous ships. The shows were ok but only one headliner (comedian) and his second show almost a mirror image I found the experience good though and with a few more cruises under its belt it will be excellent
suite good, but shower door leaked all over floor not good for new ship.
Went May2017 on Azamara Quest we enjoyed it so much we booked as soon as possible to return July 2017. We have been on approx 30 cruises, mainly Celebrity which we will still use, but found the ship so friendly / easy to navigate and with great service we've vowed to return. Yes you don't get all the bigger ship amenities but I think its nice to do both, there was a couple of familiar faces on the "new" Pursuit. Dimple the security girl she remembered us and welcomed us warmly. Cabin staff Edwin, Joseph along with Elro attended to our every need. The specialty restaurant staff were professional and made for a pampered experience, Willy the Maître D saw we were "suffering one evening due to a very boisterous table of four and discreetly moved us to a quieter area. nice touch. Due to meal time clashes didn't get to see many shows, but wondered why there wasn't a poolside music offering on at least one afternoon or for sailaway etc. As I said prior Spirits bar in the Den was the place to be before and after dinner with a trip up to the living room for a civilised Disco. Met some nice folks of varied nations
