Sail Date: Dec 2023

Booked this Christmas Cruise in October 21 as we had done the same trip in December 18, with the odd different port. Was looking forward to visiting Esperance but that was later removed from the schedule, which gave us an over night in Adelaide. Obviously, since we last sailed on Azamara Journey Royal Caribbean had sold the fleet off to private investors ad Oh boy, didn't it show. The standards over all had slipped significantly.

We booked a Continental suite as we didn't want to suffer the small bathroom and shower in the the Verandah Staterooms. The room was a good size; bathroom smallish but at least the shower was fine. Our room attendant Putu was very helpful and sweet and did a great job keeping it tidy and clean.

The ship is looking tired and the seats in Mozaic Cafe are looking worn and dirty on the arm rests. Food was OK nothing to shout about. The Goose on Christmas Eve in Aqualina was tough as was, believe it or not, the Christmas pudding. Christmas Day Brunch was good but where was all the shellfish we had in the past, not a prawn to be seen. Christmas Day evening meal in Prime C turned out to be Turkey roll and not roast Turkey as advertised. Wine was a hit or miss, no Sav Blanc and only Azamara own labels.

Adelaide is agreat city to explore, and a visit to the Botanical Gardens is a must. Adelaide is known as the City of Churches and has some lovely architecture.
