First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had never cruised because the thought of a floating city with 1000s of people sounded like a nightmare. We liked the idea of a smaller ship and the longer times on shore really appealed to us. We also liked the ports of call. We were pleased beyond our wildest expectations! From our cabin steward to the captain, including the hotel director, Cruise director and Assistant cruise director, ...

My fourth cruise on Journey and it won't be my last although my next sailing will be on Quest. Azamara has a lot to offer and the ships crew are very experienced and helpful. You certainly will feel well looked after while on board. The food options are very good and although you have to pay a supplement to use the speciality restaurants they really are worth it. Take the 3 visit package for $70! ...

We chose this cruise for the ports: Venice, Sibenik & Dubrovnik Croatia, Kotor Montenegro, Corfu Greece, Taormina Sicily, Sorrento italy, and Rome. Then we looked at reviews for Azamara, which we had never heard of before, and were impressed with them, so we booked it. This trip certainly lived up to the reviews. We loved the ship, the crew, the passengers, and the ports. I would highly ...

We are a party of 6 and have just spent a week on Azamara Journey from 02/08/2016, sailing from Venice to Rome via Croatia, Montenegro, Corfu and Sicily. The refurbishment of Azamara Journey in January 2016 does not hide the age of the ship, but it does make it a pleasant combination of nostalgic, old ship elegance and contemporary touches and convenience. Save for one issue (see the cabin ...

I chose this ship as I wanted to be away on these dates and this cruise came up at a very reasonable rate for a solo traveller. I had also heard very good reports is Azamara cruises. The transfer from the airport was not easy. We had to claim our luggage twice and then had a long walk to the transfer bus in high temperatures. On arrival at the ship we had to claim our luggage again and another ...

We chose this cruise for the dates and the destinations and the fact that we had traveled on the Azamara Quest 6 years previously and had really enjoyed it. We have no desire to cruise on large ships with thousands of passengers, so Azamara fits the bill, also the ability to get into smaller ports and not always have to tender appeals to us. In between the two Azamara cruises we have cruised on ...

Never tried it b4. tauted as a luxery cruise with top amenities. not true. cabin/crew service awful. dining room crew awful, poorly trained wait staff. Shore tours were very expensive with poor guides. very little value for the money. over all i would have to say the tours were expensive, sloppily run and poorly organized. as you might tell by now, i doubt that i would ever sail on ...

After sailing on the mega new ships, we found the difference on a smaller boutique ship profound. Azamara is owned by Royal Caribbean. We chose the line because of the complimentary beverages (wine and standard cocktail brands), prepaid gratuities and longer stays in the ports of call. The daily wine selections were fantastic and as a foodie, the culinary cuisine left us craving for more. Whether ...

Loved the service from the staff for which AZAMARA is infamous. They are definitely the best for service by far of any cruise line. The ports of call were brilliant in the Mediterranean, and time in port gave the option to do two excursions if required. The AZAMAZING EVENINGS were so special in CHANIA and VALLETTA. We did back to back cruises but visited same place twice and managed to ...

So now we are picking up the Journey in Aukland New Zealand and cruising for 16 days around New Zealand and Australia .Can't wait! We booked before we left the ship in Athens. Loved the room service...breakfast served on our Veranda each morning! We ...
