NEW YEARS EVE PARTY - at least this was a good one

No Amazing evening - all cancelled, no white night all abandoned, missed ports and very poor decision making by the Cruise directors. Cuts in included drinks and cuts in quality food, very poor cooking. Good on board orchestra but that s all. The Guest relations dealt withy the visas very well so that was good. Not memorable and really quiet naive and badly lacking in research as this is AFRICA foe goodness sake - not Miami_ Duh. Exasperated!

I suggest that Azamara need to research the destination before sending passengers out into the unknown! We took this cruise in reverse order with Oceania 6 years ago and it was perfect! Well organised and we went to Mombasa without a hitch. To call off this port with a week before boarding is inexcusable as it always been a problem area. All the difficulties were a 1000 miles away. This is poor planning by Azamara so please BEARE before booking!!!!

Food quality has definitely gone downhill and cutbacks are obvious.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Plus Stateroom

OK but the same as the others on this small ship - as expected

Clean and tidy but the balcony needs cleaning and keeping clean.

Average food. Good quality but not cooked as requested.

More limited choice than previous years and very limited fish.

Only the special buffets were of the required standard.

Staff polite and efficient but senior manger ineffective.

Recognised from a RCI cruise - so he was upgraded
