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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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).

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."

Azamara Journey

By: wardster

Reviewed on: 23 Dec 2018

We enjoyed our second cruise with Azamara, though the port intensive nature of the itinerary (Intensive Cuba) left relatively little time to fully enjoy the ship. The food was consistently excellent, particularly in the specialty restaurants, which we were able to enjoy twice each. It was disappointing, however, that the main dining room was open for lunch only twice for the entire cruise. Another complaint is the lack of service in ALL bar areas and lounges, including the pool. On the plus side, our butler (Alfy) was one of the best we've ever had, and the cabin stewards were outstanding. I do wish that Azamara would adopt Regent Seven Seas' model of a truly ALL inclusive experience, including beverages, shore excursions and airfare.

Azamara does most things right

By: John

Reviewed on: 21 Jan 2019

If you prefer smaller ships Azamara cruise ships provide all the benefits of sailing with about 700 passengers. The Az Journey was clean and well maintained. Staff and crew are incredibly friendly and helpful. Food was very good in all regular and specialty dining venues. For a 10-14 day cruise you won’t be disappointed. The Azamara approach to evening entertainment is a letdown somewhat. Our recent voyage on the Journey from the piano player in the bar, the trio in one of the cocktail bars, the guest performers to the entertainment singing and dancing staff were lesser quality than the performers found on Celebrity or RC. One exception, Cruise director and her assistant were very good, better than the professionals hired to entertain.

This was our first time with Azamara and also the smallest ship we had ever been on. It was so much more relaxing than the bigger ships. Activities during sea days were of the quiet kind with brain games, a few lectures, and quiet music. I think the ship could probably do without the casino and the lame art stuff. The food was excellent in the dining room, buffet area and patio area. There was also a little coffee area that we didn't have time to visit. Azamazing evening event was terrific and we had a great time at the "white night" party. Plan ahead for that one because it was really a nice event. These two things are definitely something you can only do on a small ship, so we say, "GO FOR IT"!

I had upgraded my drink package and it was not needed, in fact I did not use it at all. That was the only disappointment I had on this cruise, even though I had upgraded my drink plan I had to pay extra for Baileys and Port wines, only included in the highest package.

We love the small ship atmosphere, and although the Journey is starting to show some wear and tear since its last refurbish, it was the perfect voyage for us!

Azamara is Amazing

By: Debbie

Reviewed on: 22 Sep 2023

This was our 4th cruise on Azamara and won’t be the last! As a small cruise ship (700 passengers) we had a very relaxing trip. With almost no children on board all service was designed for adults. The kind and professional service, great food, interesting excursions, wonderful pool and hot tub all made for a very relaxing environment. We knew the staff that assisted us by name and they couldn’t do enough to make our vacation the best that it could be. We even were able to arrange a tour of the bridge and the Captain was very visible around the ship to chat and answer any questions. It was quite a memorable trip!

Once onboard we had a delightful time. When we started our booking we got caught up in Azamara going to a new reservation system. Everything worked out fine.

Azamara was Amazing

By: Annie

Reviewed on: 23 Oct 2023

Don’t listen to the reviews. The ship and crew were seemless from beginning to end. The ship may not have all the bells and whistles of the new fancy ships, but the staff, food and entertainment extras make up for it! Only dislikes were so so internet and paying $25 for Bingo cards. Buffet was meh. Eat in the Din8ng Room all the time. Pray that you have an Amazing Nite at a port. Ours was a choir inside Ephesus after dark. It was AMAAAAAZING!

This ship and staff is the best I have ever travelled on . The food was wonderful and the staff could not have done more for us. If I have chance to cruise again my choice would be Azamara Cruises.

Fabulous journey on the Journey

The Azamara journey attracts the type of people I like to travel with. Most of them are kind and welcoming. The accommodations are lovely, the amenities are great, the crew is stupendous, the excursions are fun and the food pretty much hits the mark every time. Did I mention how amazing the servers are? Regardless of what my next cruise is all about I hope it matches the standards of the Azamara Journey.

This was a great size ship. She does need a bit of refurbishment done inside the Staterooms. The furniture is quite well used. Now that is the only negative Staff are super amazing Food super amazing The cruising activities were educational and others just fun Once you are on the ship you don’t need to spend anymore money unless you want to purchase gifts. All ports were visited Organised excursions however some of these were very over priced. Others we would of paid more Shuttle buses available Travel to airports available And again staff amazing
