Azamura Club Cruises sell themselves as a Luxury Club Cruising option offering an interesting and slightly different itinerary, excellent food, luxury accommodation and a tip top crew offering a discreet and friendly service.

Azamura get 2.5 out of 5 for this and 5 stars for selling an expectation!.

Itinerary - The Black Sea itinerary is very worthwhile, the low points being the two V's Varna and Volos, but Odessa, Sevastopol and Yalta make up for those, as does the overnight in Istanbul - a superb starting point. Do try to get to the opera house in Odessa for a performance, the atmosphere and ambience is not to be missed.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1B

Tired furniture, but excellent quality bed-linen, towels and bathrobes. Good quality toiletries and fresh fruit and flowers daily (although limited in selection). Very small, but adequate bathroom.

Port Reviews

Istanbul

Do have a Hammam (Turkish bath) and do everything you can from the guidebooks - it is all fabulous!

Varna

Be careful of pick pockets. Not much to see, but a stroll from the cathedral back to port is worthwhile.

Volos

Okay, nothing special. A walk along the promenade and an iced coffee in one of bars is recommended.
