  3. Azamara Journey
I just enjoy getting away on my own from time to time and cruising is my favorite way to escape. It is always more fun to have my travel buddies with me but it’s not always possible and cruising is a way to make new friends or hang out alone, if you prefer. For some reason, “all in the same boat” seems to be the perfect motto for single travelers and the reason to travel that way. Azamara ships are the perfect size for me. Small enough to navigate easily, super friendly staff and management and this last trip, GREAT entertainment! I know you can get bigger shows on bigger ships (with bigger audiences) but this group were out of New York and outstanding! There was a particular young singer/dancer that I believe will be Broadway bound name Michael Bradley. Not only can he perform, he helped Marcio with our iPad classes. Those were so much fun and I learned a LOT! I hope they have them on all their cruises in the future. Of course, the ship is ready for a “face lift” and having been on the Persuit this summer after its rehab, it’s going to be a big improvement. Yes, the showers are still small and will be after the renovation but some big men showered in the spa shower...just a hint. The “White NIght” was, as always, a highlight of any Azamara cruise. Everyone had a grand time and our cruise director who is also outstanding kept everyone on their feet.Eric deGray is one HUGE talent! The Chef’s table dinner with another special evening..additional, naturally. All in all, I believe I got my moneys worth and will certainly be back with Azamara soon!

Cabin Review

Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom
Cabin VX 8034
It’s hard to go into raptures over the cabin which was right in the middle of the ship...perfect place for those few “rock and roll” nights. It’s a tired old gal with a tiny bathroom, nice veranda which for some reason always seemed wet but the crew do try to wash the doors and deck often. The bed is quite comfortable , the TV scarce in the way of programming but enough. You don’t want to spend your time in there anyhow. The cabin stewards were attentive and kept it clean. Since I was alone, I got all the hangers and drawers and didn’t need all of them.

    After a short walk from the ship, we went to Kiss the Chef in the LX Factory area for a cooking class. We were outfitted with aprons and supplies to make a Portuguese main course, a fish stew, and a chicken sausage with applesauce. It was fun and filling. We came away full and smiling.
