First cruise on a smaller ship

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Service was beyond excellent.  The embark/debark process was seamless as were the on & off procedures at the ports-of-call.  The food was excellent and varied; the ship was well-maintained and had a very visible, warm, friendly, out-going Captain.  This was the quietest cruise we've ever been on - no obnoxious cruise director & staff trying to get folks up to make fools of themselves or loud music blasting.  There were no photographers always in our faces trying to take those souvenir pictures for sale, but were available if desired. This West Indies Hideaway cruise was so relaxing and laid-back, but a little too much so for us.  Because of the small size, the evening entertainment options were very limited and not always of interest to us.  The shore excursion offerings were very sparse compared to our 16 previous cruises on multiple other lines.  The staff and crew were most accommodating, and the Caberet Room entertainment was excellent with very talented singers and dancers.  They also offered ballroom dance lessons by great Pro's.  Bar & Wait service and room stewards were also very good; the gift shop was a little small and limited, and we really liked the price inclusive beverages & gratuities - great idea!  We had trouble with the ship's internet but were not in dire need to use it often.  Overall, a very good cruise.

Azamazing Cruise

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We loved the ports of call.  We visited ports that we had not cruised to before.  We were very disappointed that the stop at Virgin Gorda had been canceled and unfortunately Azamara did not give a credit towards another cruise, which was odd because we have received credits in the past.  Azamara is one of our favorite cruise lines.

For their Azamazing evening we went to the Antigua's Government House where we toured the house, met the Governor General Williams, had cocktails, canapes and deserts while listening to a steel band followed by a band and fireworks before returning to the ship.

Not a Luxury Cruiseline in My Estimation

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The food and service were roughly comparable to the sister line, Celebrity. 

 

I expected something special for New Year's Eve but was quite disappointed by the 'White Night' activity on the pool deck.  The conditions were so bad that we were unable to get out of port that night.  Then I realized the pool was the only area that could accommodate all of the passengers.

 

I did not consider this to be a good value for the price.

San Juan to Miami December 2016

The food and wine was beyond my expectations.  I am not a frequent cruiser and this was my first on Azamara.  The Discoveries restaurant was very nice and I wish I would have dined there earlier in the cruise.  It was much better than the open dining (and more casual) buffet type restaurant.  

The staff was excellent.  Very professional and courteous - always on top of refilling drinks or clearing your table.  

I was glad to purchase the internet package, but wished it was faster and could handle more than one person in my party.  We constantly had to switch off which was annoying.

I purchased the five bottle wine upgrade, but found the standard wines they served each day was more than adequate for my taste.

Will look to Azamara again as a first choice, but would love to have a room with a balcony in the future.

A wonderful New Years Eve

My husband and I loved the cruise, especially that there were only 675 passengers.  It gives one a more intimate feeling.

 

The food was terrific. We enjoyed the specialty Italian restaurant--Aqualina.

Christmas Day lunch buffet and Christmas evening White Party buffet and entertainment. Great price for what they have in store for you.  We also had an anniversary celebration on board and they took care of recognizing us at the table with a shared cake and our statement was completely decorated, and awaiting for us after dinner.

Winter in the Caribbean

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Azamara staff wonderful as usual. Food very good. Ports visited very similar which tends to be a feature of the Caribbean. Entertainment O.K. but not wonderful. The cruise Director does not compare with Eric de Gray on the Journey.We will continue to sail with Azamara as it suits our needs.We love the informality and the friendly atmosphere on board.

Azamara amazing? Almost!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

As a frequent cruiser, we were looking forward to our first Azamara experience. It came very highly recommended, so our expectations were high. As far as service amd cleanliness, no problem. Food was good to very good. The specialty restaurants were excellent. The ship was comfortable, but not too exciting. Activities were limited. We stayed in a club suite which was nice, but the balcony was very narrow. Our biggest issue was the noise level above our cabin. ...under the cafe. Nothing could be done . The staff was totally aware of this issue, but nothing could be done. 

We would return on another Azamara cruise, but would be more aware of cabin location!

Another Terrific Azamara Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

What can you say?  Cruising with Azamara continues to be a great experience. We were on the Journey earlier this year and haven't been on the Quest for a while.  Since our last trip, the menu has been revamped and reorganized much for the better.  I don't know if it was this chef or an overall upgrade by Azamara, but I have to say the food was terrific, especially in the dining room.  All the main courses I had were outstanding, especially the veal chops.  The crew continues to be first rate. Kudos to Dale, Anthony, Naik and Metrizcal at the bars and Munna in dining.  The ports are what we've come to expect from Azamara with the exception of the poor Hop on Hop off excursion in Miami which was less than acceptable.  Still, we can' wait for our next Azamara cruise.

I loved the staff.  However, sometimes for the excursions it was difficult to find out where we were supposed to meet and what time.  Also the 24 hour cancellation fee was a big cumbersome because sometimes we would feel tired but we still had to go on the excursion anyway.

It is hot and humid in most of these ports. Be sure to plan for this. Bring a hat and sunscreen. The tours and ship provide water. The information given about what to wear to visit the temples was conflicting. Be prepared with clothes to cover your shoulders and legs.

Listen to the daily forecast and dress appropriately. Take your sunscreen and a bottle of water with you whenever you leave the ship. Don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it. It is available up to the point you board the bus. Let staff know of your needs in advance of going ashore.
