We chose this cruise because it gave us the opportunity to try a Club Continent Suite at a very reasonable cost. We made a great decision. Although we were put off by the negative reviews that we had read on this site, we are happy to say that the Onward is a beautiful, well staffed and well run ship. Our cruise couldn't have been better. Our suite was clean, bright, and well appointed. The bathroom is, thankfully, much larger than standard Azamara bathrooms (which are mini). The shower was great and we liked the bath products.
As suite guests, we were able to dine in the specialty restaurants each night. We were surprised at the excellent quality of the food and preparation. Every meal was a party! The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was very enjoyable.
We don't regularly eat meat, but we found that we were able to put delicious, interesting meals together even in Prime C which is a steak intensive venue. The meals that we had in Discoveries....a few lunches and special brunches were also excellent, with unbelievably great service. And speaking of service....it is absolutely amazing all over the ship. All the crew seemed to be upbeat, smiley and really enjoying their jobs. We enjoyed interacting with so many of them with their diverse backgrounds.
