This was my first Azamara cruise and probably my last. I wanted a small ship experience. That's why I chose the Onward. I cruised on Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Star Clipper and Crystal previously.
The ship was badly refurbished. I stayed in a veranda cabin. The desk in the cabin had a big crank on it. This ship was just launched in May 2022. I felt that the cabin was cheaply refurbished.
The main dining room experience was disappointing. The food was either overly salted or under seasoned. Please do not try the souffle on the ship, it is so sweet that it will put you in a diabetic coma.
