Azamara Journey was a great ship, we traveled from HongKong to Singapore, stoping in Vietnam and Thailand. The food was good, and there was a lot of crew for each passenger. The average age of the passengers was around 50+. Not a single child in our ship, we were the youngest by far (27yrs). Highly recommended.

The Shoe That Fits!

We've cruised on Crystal, Seabourn, Oceania, Windstar, & Orient Lines, & for us, Azamara is the shoe that fits. The service is as good as it gets without getting obsequious (Crystal), & is only surpassed by Seabourn & why split hairs as both are so very good. The destination intensive nature of Azamara's cruises suits us to a T. The food is excellent & as we have twice booked a suite we enjoy the signature restaurants often & always with delight.

Highly Recommend Azamara, always

This was my 8th or 9th cruise with Azamara, and the Journey and the Quest have become my favorite ships because of the smaller size, the friendliness and great service from the staff, fine food, excellent lecturers, longer stays in port, and many included items.  On the Journey March 17th sailing, I thought the event in Manila was handled poorly, though.  Should go back to the party held there in 2012.  Afternoon programming on sea days should be revamped, and on some days the 2 lecturers were scheduled in the same 2 hour period.  It was difficult to find the recordings of the lecturers should one miss them.  Solos table at dinner in the dining room is a good idea.  The high cost of travelling single will cause me to book fewer trips in the future, though.

Everything was great with one exception.  First all the good things:The ship, the service at all levels, the food, the cleanlines of the entire ship and the excellent response to all of our questions. All of the above you and all your  people do very well.Now tthe problem:  You advertised this particular sailing as Tapas and Wine.  You had plenty of wine but only one night of limited tapas.  We were expecting to have a different assortment of tapas every night to go along with the differnt wines.  We as well as some people we met on the cruise thought this was a huge misrepresentation and disapointment.

If you enjoy a smaller ship with an attentive, friendly staff Azamara Journey or Quest is the ship for you.  Comfortable accommodations, excellent dining choices, good entertainment, knowledgeable lecturers and staff, enough time in ports to explore, no nickel and diming.

We were missing one of our suitcases and the ship quickly offered to do our laundry without cost until our missing case arrived. We love Azamara and have sailed on the Journey three times and the Quest one time. We currently are scheduled to sail on the Quest in Austrailia and New Zealand. I highly recommend them - they do not nickel and dime you to death!

We have traveled with Azamara on two previous cruises and have enjoyed all three experiences. We prefer a ship no larger than the Azamara ships. The food is excellent, staff friendly, ship clean and well run and the shore excursions are well chosen. Our first considerations when choosing a cruise are destinations and Azamara has very good itineraries.

This is my second cruise with Azamara and another great experience. I like to view the ship as a floating hotel so I appreciate the itineraries, time in port, and ease of leaving the ship as priority. The food and beverages on Azamara are top notch as are the crew. I highly recommend this cruise line.

We like the size and the not having a lot of children aboard. Everything was first class.

We had a wonderful time. First experience on Azamara and would definitely choose them again. We love the small ships and this is one of the reasons that we chose them. The itinerary was wonderful. We called it the rainbow cruise as we had rain storms many times so saw many rainbows - multiple in some days. We didn't let the rain dampen our spirits and toured about even when we were wet. The Canary Islands were very interesting - we visited 4 islands and each one was different. We had been in Madeira once before but there were still many things that we had not seen the last time. The Azamazing Evening was so cool - couldn't imagine this on bigger ship. Nice to try local food and see the culture. Enjoyed our time in Gibraltar. Liked that the dancers and singers were on the cruise staff and involved in the games/trivia. They were all so friendly. Food and service as great. Nice to not have to pay for tips and drinks.

Azamara cruise line has the best Captain at the helm. He was a joy to hear every day. Your staff in every area of the ship were excellent. Excursions were below par for a cruise of this kind. Details were lacking. Entertainment on the ship: Ed in the Casino Bar was excellent. Jamilla and Clare Langdon were the best performers. The other performances were given 3/10. White night with the music was superb!

From the Captain to the stateroom attendant, this cruise exceeded our most lofty hopes. The food was excellent, and entertainment (led by Eric) was wonderful, and the ship was spotless. The organization of the ship's crew in support of on shore activities was thorough and very effective. Finally, the organization of disembarkation was most effective and much appreciated!

We couldn't ask for a better cruise line - the entire crew is very friendly - including crew that do not interact with passengers usually. The ships are clean and well maintained and don't look their age. Another cruise line that took over an 'R' ship really show its age - not Azamara! Our AzAzamara evening in Venice was jaw-dropping in a theatre that was Rococo and beautiful. The Music was fantastic and the soprano sang beautifully. We cannot wait for our next cruise with Azamara in April, 2016!

Our second time to cruise Azamara, and not our last. We cruised from Venice to Adriatic (Croatia and Montenegro) then to Greek Isles. (Crete, Santorini, Hydra and Naufplion) ending in Athens. What we love about Azamara was the small, intimate nature of these ships. You can be as quiet, or "party" as much as you want. The food is good, especially in the two specialty restaurants. We did a special "Chef's Table" which is a small (10 people) wine pairing dinner. It was great! We had French, but they had Italian and California options, too. Service is great, and were amazed that they all remembered our names- from room staff to restaurant, and bars. The other thing about Azamara is their small size allows them to go places that others cannot get to. In Split the ship went right up to the city dock, while the other large ship had to tender. A highlight was their "Azamazing" evening- a private cello concert in the old city of Dubrovnik. It was amazing! Already booked again!

Azamara has it all - big enough for on-board entertainment and comfort and small enough for that personal touch that makes everything fun and stress free. We especially like not having to think about gratuities or paying extra for unlimited drinks and having a laundry area provided. This was our 4th cruise with Azamara and they continue to improve! This time we had an Azamazing Evening in Positano, Italy with a Night of Neopolitan Music and the recent dry dock and remodel brightened up the interior and added many extra touches to the staterooms (such as a USB outlet next to your bed). Overall, very enjoyable experience with very friendly staff who listened to every request (especially to food preferences) and delivered! Looking forward to number 5!

Overall ok with some big positives, of off-ship performances, hard working personnel, good food quality and variety, captain had timing and route flexibility. Security team was good. Cabin service outstanding. My thumbs up is this conditional. Negatives were occasional service failures on dining room, abysmal internet system, unimpressive show performance, customer service desk unimpressive, future cruise sales office only fair. Handling of back-to-back pax a bit clumsy. In a number of instances execution was ordinarily. Comparisons are Oceania R ships and HAL Grand Cruises. I would use Azamara again only if cost (single) very favorable compared to above lines.

Azamara continues to be out travel group's preferred cruise line. In spite of some rough seas, and inclement weather, AZ still provided an outstanding cruise experience. When we were unable to dock at two ports, they provided appropriate transportation at the next ports so we were able to experience the area. In some cases we even saw more than we would have otherwise. Also, their AZamazing evening was just that, and the elaborate "French Night" buffet on deck was just one more example of the extras that always surprise and delight us. And can there be a more wonderful, friendly crew and staff at sea! Since we were sailing when the powerful hurricane struck Florida, AZ offered complimentary phone service to anyone with family and friends who may have been affected. We hope to keep traveling with this awesome cruise line in the future; as they say when you return to the ship from an excursion, "welcome home."

When compared to Crystal and recently Regent, I preferred this ship for the following reasons: Service, many staff have served on this ship for more than five years and provided superior service. Value, the price point was far below the other two all inclusive lines. Special events, neither of the other lines had surprises. For example, white party, chocolate buffet, special night off ship, dim sen buffet, brunch, etc.. Food quality and taste, superior. Room service, very prompt. Entertainment, was not good along with location speaker. Two other negatives, laundry and fitness access. Of note, captain's presence frequently seen on ship to include disembarkation. Overall experience was terrific.

We enjoyed the cruise. First time for Azamara in some of these ports. Went into ports where they only get six or seven cruise ships per year. People in port excited to see us and many volunteers were very helpful. Lots to do on the ship on sea days. They kept you busy if you wanted to be. Azamazing Evening was not as good as some of the others we attended. Venue was not suitable for the number of people and we were not able to see. However, twice a local band came on board while we had deck parties and performed. This was a great experience.

overall nice. Many things need to be changed. The drinks on the pkg that is included were TERIBLE. The bar tenders need better training. The one drink my husband liked was a blended drink. After the first one he got he was told the blender was broken and they couldn't make it any more. Well that was CRAP because other people were getting blended drinks. There should be laundry on every floor not just the 7th. Malibu rum cost no more than other alcohol yet that was in the up grade pkg we have gone on Vacation that were not as costly as Azamara with better Alcohol selections included. I wish we had known the average age of the people on this cruise was 75+. we asked for music to be played during the day at the pool area. We were told we can not do that people complain because they want to sleep. Really go to your damn room and take a nap.

We liked this cruise ship very much. The smaller size and fewer passengers was a real plus. All of the staff were very helpful and very friendly. Dining options worked very well. Evening entertainment was varied and very professional. We really enjoyed the regular cabaret performers and their evening shows. However, the entertainers from Feinstein’s 54 Below did not live up to the hype. There were a few issues with some of the shore excursions. They tried to pack in too many sights on some occasions that limited the enjoyment of more interesting places.
