The ship was comfortable in all weather conditions, thanks to stabilizers. Small enough to get into all but one port (Geiranger, Norway) without tendering.

The ship was built ten years ago and shows her age. But staff (friendly and willing) and food (delicious and plentiful) more than made up for it.

The ship was big enough to offer choices in food and entertainment, but small enough to retain a certain intimacy.

Staterooms were comfy with most amenities, although they lacked the CD players we found on other ships. The bathroom had sufficient storage. The bed was low, and for some could have been difficult to get in and out of. Linens were fresh and in good condition.

The pool, specifically the grout around the tiles, needs attention. It was discolored and stained. Not inviting. Too many of the mens rooms were in bad condition: they smelled, the sink fixtures were loose or broken, locks weren't on all stall doors.

We were at sea for 3400 nautical miles, and would definitely take this ship again. I think a positioning cruise might be a little long in this size ship but I'd try it once.

Delightful Azamara JOURNEY over-delivered in many ways!

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom
Cabin V1 6073
The desk in our cabin was showing its age. And, oddly, the light switch for the bathroom was damaged.
