Sail Date: Nov 2023

Second time on this ship, first time post covid and hopes were high. I think it is important to differentiate between brands and definitions of ‘luxury small ship cruising’ before offering a fair review.

Azamara offers small ship all-inclusive cruising in a boutique setting. This is NOT 6 star (hate that phrase anyway). If you are looking for the above with an all-suite, all-butler style service then look elsewhere however if you are comfortable to compromise on cabin space and a FEW of those added luxuries, Azamara is most definitely the company for you.

The ship is beautiful. Perfectly laid out, easy to navigate, plenty of lounge and deck space with some beautiful furnishings. The decor is timeless and elegant with beautiful paneling, lighting, fireplaces and carpets, can you tell I’m a fan?

Cabin Review

Small but charming. Please consider some basic investment in these soon and address issues consistently raised.

Port Reviews

Florence (Livorno)

Great for its access to Pisa, Luca and Florence.

Monaco (Monte Carlo)

Got lucky and no tendering. Perfect to walk into town and a real WOW of a part to visit.


Very pretty port and a charming sail-in. Be aware of sundays and off season arrivals as EVERYTHING is closed and lacked atmosphere.

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Great city and definitely worth exploring further especially the north of the island. Be advised that the port is not walking distance to the cathedral and old town. A free shuttle was provided (grateful of this!).
