Hopping the Mediterranean
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)
We really liked the feel of a smaller ship and the ease of getting around. It was easy off and easy on at every port. Our suite came with a priority tender ticket, but we never had to use it as we never had to wait. The pool deck chairs in the sun were always occupied either by people or quite a few books were out getting sun tans all day long. We had the luxury of being to lay out on our own deck so not an issue. We have been on two other cruises and this cruise by far had the best food of any other. Great presentation and quality taste. The buffet was , for the lack of a better word , a buffet. Adequate to fill your belly and better than most. We are Casino players and like the slots, not a good thing on a cruise and Azamara is no different. We figured out very quickly that it was for entertainment only and we were not going to strike it rich. Azamara got quite a bit of our money and there wasn't one trip to the casino for us that was fruitful.
The itinerary was outstanding. Great ports and great schedules. We had a trip of a life time seeing the things we saw. We only used the ship excursions in Israel and they ran smoothly. The buses were not full and we saw a lot with experienced guides.The system of dispersing the people was seamless. When we disembarked in Rome, it was walk off ship collect your bags and get in a taxi in under 10 minutes. Great organization. Overall, it was a great experience and Azamara treated us really well. i would not ever booked again on the 8th level unless they come up with a solution for the scrapping of the chairs Less
Cabin review: sui8088
Cabin was smaller than virtual tour made it look , but still really nice. Lots of closet space, two bathrooms, private balcony was very big. Under the Cafe patio so scrapping of chairs was unbearable in our room. Bed was not as comfortable as i hoped , but definitely adequate. master bath was plenty big and large vanity outside bathroom.
