Not quite so good

This was our third trip on the Journey. We have not been on any other cruise ships , so cannot compare. Overall it was a good trip. We very much like the small ship experience, no kids ambiance, and the staff are all excellent , and seem to "know you personally". Other guests were predominantly "senior", but well travelled and easy to get into conversation with. The one point many other ...

This was our first Azamara cruise and will not be our last. From the very first day until the last, the service was superb. The food was excellent in both the Discoveries Restaurant and the Window's Cafe. We particularly enjoyed dinners in the Window's Cafe sitting at the stern of the ship, enjoying the sunset and breeze. The waiters and staff were super responsive and friendly. Noteworthy staff - ...

My husband and I just returned from the 12 Night Rio Carnival & Buenos Aires Voyage on the Azamara Journey and we can't stop raving about the trip. We are well-seasoned travelers who have taken more than a handful of cruises, but this experience was really "la creme de la creme." We love cruising for the ease with which it allows you to see multiple destinations: you unpack your bags once, you ...

Wonderful Experience For An Azamara First-Timer

This was our first cruise with Azamara. Most of our cruises have been with Crystal and Celebrity. We are a couple in our late 30s and really enjoy a more subdued, upscale environment. I was a little worried having booked this cruise, as the photos of the ship online make the decor look very dated and old-fashioned. I was also concerned about being on a much smaller ship than we are used to. ...

I was on the Rio to Buenos Aires 9 day cruise that disembarked Dec 22. I'm a pretty experienced cruiser having been on over 70 cruises including now 2 on Azamara, 2 on Oceania, Seabourn, Crystal, as well as a range of other lower price point lines over the past 25 years. I have been at sea for 100 days this year. In my opinion, service by all staff, crew and officers (with one exception by Guest ...

Suite Life on Azamara Journey in South America

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

This was our second Azamara Cruise and first time on Journey, the identical twin of the Quest. In fact, we had the same exact cabin (7005 - Club Ocean Suite) as we did on the Quest, and imagine our surprise to have the same Butler, Alwyn! There were many familiar faces on board from the Quest, so we felt at home right away. The Journey is well-maintained and our suite was just as we remembered ...

This is the second review of our back to back cruise, we thought it was appropriate to do two reviews as they were two different cruises and we will focus particularly on the differences. As back to back cruisers, our view of embarkation was a little different. Azamara handle back to back extremely well, we had been invited to early evening drinks a couple of days previously when our new room ...

This review was long in coming since I have been massively busy and unable to find the time to do a thorough job in reviewing the ship. The beginning of the trip was to say the least, hideous! This was possible because my expectations were so high having cruised with Azamara twice before and was blown away by both embarkation procedures. Sadly, the Port in Rio was a disaster for all who ...

First Time Cruiser

We just returned from a wonderful cruise on the Azamara Journey today after a 12 day cruise and 2 day precruise package. We embarked on the cruise on Dec 11. We started in Santos (Sao Paulo port) and ended in Buenos Aires. We had a fabulous time. I sometimes wondered if I was on the same ship mentioned in some other reviews. For back ground I am 59 years old and my husband is 61. We have sailed 9 ...
