  3. Azamara Quest
This was our first cruise on Azamara since we mostly sail on Celebrity and Princess. We love the smaller ship and the fact that there weren't many children on board (I only saw one). We wanted to go more upscale and chose this cruise for the itinerary (Venice-Croatia-Montenegro-Slovenia-Venice). I'd say this cruise was very good but not amazing. Here are my pros and cons: Pros - Windows Buffet - loved the fresh squeezed orange juice for breakfast and the full salad bar at lunch and dinners. My favorites were the carved roasted turkey which was so tender and delicious, lentils, salad bar, smoked salmon and mackerel for breakfast, and their Indian dishes (which unfortunately were too few). - Discoveries Restaurant was very nice with freshly prepared cuisine (we liked this better than their specialty restaurants which charged a fee). - Service at all restaurants was good though some servers were much better than others. - The ship was usually able to dock at ports or very close to it with a short tender. - Embarkation/disembarkation at ports ran very smoothly with little or no waiting time. - Love how they provide guests with bottled water 24/7. - Having an overnight in Venice was brilliant. - Azamazing evening in Slovenia was magical. - White Nights dinner was great despite the stormy weather. Cons - Most of the main entrees seemed to be dry and overcooked. - Asian cuisine wasn't very good. - Prime C was a letdown - the steak was meh and their onion soup was dismal. - The restaurant aft windows in Prime C were dirty. - Our shower was so small - a few turns and you'd bump into the wall. Plus the shower curtain would keep touching you all the time. The bottom walls of the shower looked like they've been peeled and fixed but it looks cheap and worn. Although we were expecting more, we enjoyed the smaller size of this ship and will cruise again if the itinerary is right for us.

Good - Not Amazing

We wanted to go more upscale and chose this cruise for the itinerary (Venice-Croatia-Montenegro-Slovenia-Venice). I'd say this cruise was very good but not amazing. Here are my pros and cons:

Pros

- Windows Buffet - loved the fresh squeezed orange juice for breakfast and the full salad bar at lunch and dinners. My favorites were the carved roasted turkey which was so tender and delicious, lentils, salad bar, smoked salmon and mackerel for breakfast, and their Indian dishes (which unfortunately were too few).

- Discoveries Restaurant was very nice with freshly prepared cuisine (we liked this better than their specialty restaurants which charged a fee).

- Service at all restaurants was good though some servers were much better than others.

- The ship was usually able to dock at ports or very close to it with a short tender.

- Embarkation/disembarkation at ports ran very smoothly with little or no waiting time.

- Love how they provide guests with bottled water 24/7.

- Having an overnight in Venice was brilliant.

- Azamazing evening in Slovenia was magical.

- White Nights dinner was great despite the stormy weather.

Cons

- Most of the main entrees seemed to be dry and overcooked.

- Asian cuisine wasn't very good.

- Prime C was a letdown - the steak was meh and their onion soup was dismal.

- The restaurant aft windows in Prime C were dirty.

- Our shower was so small - a few turns and you'd bump into the wall. Plus the shower curtain would keep touching you all the time. The bottom walls of the shower looked like they've been peeled and fixed but it looks cheap and worn.

Although we were expecting more, we enjoyed the smaller size of this ship and will cruise again if the itinerary is right for us.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom
Cabin V3 7044
This is a nice midship location on the 7th deck which is only two decks away from the Windows Buffet (on deck 9) and Discoveries Restaurant (deck 5). The room itself was standard size but furnished nicely. We enjoyed the two reading light sconces.

The worst part of this cabin was the shower. Very small and cramped with the bottom walls looking battered and worn.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Ljubljana
    The tour of Ljubljana included a brief city tour with lunch and a boat ride. Ljubljana was very lovely but the city tour only consisted of a few short blocks. The bus ride was nice and comfortable and the canal boat ride reminded me of Amsterdam but not as nice. The lunch at a restaurant was okay - mushroom soup, chicken and potatoes. No salad or any vegetables. Owners didn't seem too pleased that we were there. Tour guide was fine but nothing exceptional. Wish we were given more time to visit markets and shop.
