  3. Azamara Pursuit
This was our first Azamara cruise, having sailed before mainly with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean. We were expecting it to be a step up from the other lines but we found it wasn’t. The Officers and staff we found to be very friendly. Training of staff in some areas was certainly lacking. You wouldn’t expect a waiter to need a table plan to take you to your table and still get it wrong. Our cabin steward and the two Croatian barmen in The Den were excellent. Food in the main restaurant was very good but we found the buffet at lunchtime was disappointing. The speciality restaurants is an area where training needs to be given. The food was very good but waiters should not remove plates before everyone in your party has finished the course. This made a couple feel as if they were holding us up. We were lucky enough to be invited to an Officers hosting evening and we were lucky to have the Officer Lucy Dobson on our table who was an excellent advert for Azamara Staff. Would we sail with Azamara again? Yes we would if the price and itinerary were what we wanted, but our expectations wouldn’t be so high. A tip we found useful was that the coffee table is too big for the room but we moved it between the window and settee and it gave us a lot more room.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom
Cabin V3 6014
Our cabin was perfectly adequate with plenty of storage space. It was kept very well by our cabin steward. The bathroom is very small with the dreaded shower curtain.
The balcony is small and the table is too big for the space.
