DISGUSTED BY WINDSTAR

Another great Azamara cruise but the need to be aware of the competition

We returned to Azamara after our first voyage last year on the Quest. We found that the two ships were almost similar although we preferred the artwork on the Quest better than the Journey. Else, everything was ...

Missed Ports - Few Returns

Air Canada did what Air Canada does. Poor food, and a 3 hour delay on the tar mac, scrunched in a corner with a cricket team. Hotels: Edinburgh was the best part of the trip - mostly because of 3 interesting, ...

Short cruise

Cabin was clean and comfortable but I wouldn't want to be on for a long cruise 14+ nights as wardrobe space was at a minimum. There was a good range of public areas and bars. The accommodation round the pool was ...

Azamara Journey with Teens

We were a little worried about an Azamara cruise with a 17 and 19 year old, but we all had a great time. The service was amazing, food was very good and the staff addressed each of our on board issues (gym temp too ...

Very predictable Azamara - no surprises

We chose this cruise as it gave us the longest time in St. Petersburg. Also as we live in Scotland, leaving from Edinburgh was a bonus! We'd been on the Journey twice before and in truth we've mainly gone by ...

Great close-in access to ports and wonderful surprise once onboard!

This cruise was selected to celebrate our anniversary and to get out of the extreme summer heat of Florida! Azamara only offered the one sailing for this itinerary, or we'd have selected another time to go since it ...

Good and bad.

Overall, I would say we were happy with this cruise from Rosyth to Longyearbyen then back again. I'm not convinced I would cruise again with CMV, it would depend on the itinerary. The Good: The price was ...

Amazing ports to see.

These were places we'd never been before. Everything was good except the choices at dinner in the main dining room. Too many fancy names for the previous nights leftovers, it seemed. Very little straightforward ...

Older ship, avg. food (poor steaks), excellent service

Title says it all. It is nowhere near as good as a Vikings Ocean Cruise. The ship is old has outdated decor (early Renaissance?) which is dark and dreary. The rugs are almost warn out. On the 7th floor starboard ...

Good cruise: rushed, expensive shore tours a disappointment. Service issues

Taste of Iceland (and Faroes). Third F.O cruise. We have gradually moved up decks each cruise and travelled paying near top-price for a suite this time. Four negative experiences took the edge of an ...

Lovely, interesting cruise; don't pay for internet: rubbish.

My brother and I chose this cruise because of the small ship, to see the Norwegian fjords and not to spend too much time on the open sea. The staff were really good and friendly, the ship looking a little worn in ...

Norway is spectacular.

We chose this cruise because the size of the ship meant that it visited fjords other ships couldn't. It certainly didn't disappoint. The scenery was fantastic and we were lucky to have several sunny days, which ...

I was a bit sceptical about my 7 night Scottish Island cruise on Marco Polo as I'd hear a few bad things about the ship, but have to say I had a great time. We chose this one based on the itinerary and were ...

This ship is very tired and old and needs lots of updating. The waiting and bar staff are very hard workers, polite and friendly but the reception staff and excursions staff appear to be more aloof. The food apart ...
