The ship is very richly decorated and the staff are highly attentive particularly compared to larger ships. The Varandah stateroom was a pleasure to be in and excellently cleaned and tidiesd regularly. in terms of service I particularly recommend two Ukranians Katerina serving in the cabaret and and Irina in the cafe and a Hungarian, Lazar, in the cafe. The entertainment was superb and the in house Magic City Opera events stand out for me. The locally guided tours were very informative with the personal touch particularly in Thailand but also Vietnam. The historical talks on the area were interesting and well informed. The captain is a extremely funny and gregarious and makes it all come together into the Azamara experience. My only criticism is the US obsession with charging for expensive WiFi packages. This is very stressful particularly for families and it should be integrated in the package forthwith as it is the only element at variance with the Azamara experience.
Verandah makes all the difference enabling us to relish the sea any time of day or night. The room is kept excellently clean and today and we were well looked after by the domestic staff
My only criticism is that the separate WiFi payments are very costly particularly for families. In this day and age they MUST be inclusive even if the overall cost rises slightly, This is a trick they do in US but most of us were not from the USA
