Azamara Quest Cruise Review by connellsville
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Club Veranda Stateroom
The cruise director, Ernest, was excellent. All of the ship’s singers and dancers were very talented. The entertainment was very good. The ship excursions we took ranged from average to excellent. We especially enjoyed the Sitka raptor center and Sitka tour and the Mendenhall Glacier and Salmon Bake. The salmon was grilled over coals with a maple glaze. Best food we had on the cruise.
Our room was a standard balcony cabin. The bedding was great. Our shower had mold on the floor when we first got to our cabin. It was not removed until we complained to Guest Relations. Other than that, the cabin was very good.
The service in the main restaurant was very poor. I always had to ask to get my water refilled. The menu was uninteresting. The daily chef’s specials were the same as the entrees served at the dinner buffet in Windows.
Azamara used to be our favorite cruise line. It no longer is. The brand has been cheapened and it’s no longer a luxury cruise line.

Kenai Fjords National ParkWe did the six hour Kenai Fjords Cruise with Salmon Buffet. The cruise was excellent. We saw sea otters, seals and orcas, along with a calving glacier. The seating is excellent, and you can move freely about the boat. The food was very good for a tour boat.View All 36 Kenai Fjords National Park Reviews
SeaLife CenterThe Alaska SeaLife Center is a marvelous aquarium, especially if you have children. You can see native Alaskan sea birds, seals, sea lions and fish. The sea life is well-displayed in its natural habitat.View All 20 SeaLife Center Reviews

VancouverWe were picked up at the cruise port. Small van tour. Our driver first took us to Stanley Park. Then we headed out of the city to Shannon Falls. We spent 40 minutes at the waterfall. The drive is very scenic. We continued on to Whistler. The Peak-to-peak gondola ride is not included in the tour price. It is a must see if you like beautiful mountain vistas and well worth the price. Or you can hike the trails in Whistler for free. We spent four hours in Whistler, which is ample time to ride the gondolas and ski lifts and enjoy the mountain scenery. On the way back to Vancouver, we made some stops for photos.View All 12,802 Vancouver Cruise Port Reviews
