My husband and I have cruised 25 weeks primarily on windjammer tall sailing ships. We love the adventure and ability to get to know the other passengers and crew that a tall ship allows. We also have enjoyed cruises on small OAT ships and Grand Circle river boats. We started hearing about Azamara and all reports we read were positive so we decided to give try it thinking that it was a onetime thing as the ship that large would be too big for our taste. Boy, were we ever wrong -- we enjoyed every aspect of our Azamara Journey cruise.

We purchased a package that had us flying into Barbados on the day of embarkation. All travel went smoothly including the transfer to the ship. Embarkation was a breeze. The only thing that was a bit disappointing in the whole 14 days was that we were not escorted to our cabin, or even to the elevator. But we had no trouble finding our way.

Our veranda cabin was small but very comfortable with a love seat, desk and 2 chairs & a small table on the veranda. The bathroom was tight but had adequate shelf space for us to put all our toiletries.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1A

The way the light is in the entry hall when the closet door is open it puts the closet in a shadow. They need to put a light in the closet. Bathroom very small. Good location near but not too near the self service laundry.
