Azamara Quest Hemingway Hideaways

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our first cruise on Azamara and we were very impressed with the ship.  We booked for New Orleans so the change of plans and visit to Cuba was a plus.  However, changing Mobile AL to Tampa was a negative for us.

Quest again

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our second cruise on Quest lived up to our expectations.  We would say the ports-of-call on our first trip (Bordeaux, Bilbao, St John de Luz, Lisbon, etc.) were far more interesting than this cruise but the islands we visited were beautiful and the water spectacular.  Quest or Journey would be our ships of choice on any cruise but, with only two ships, they don't always go where we want, when we want.

Azamara is Amazing!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We've cruised 3 times with Azamara and each has been great.

The friendliness of the staff and crew and excellence of service make this memorable. This was a special Valentine cruise for my wife and I celebrating our marriage. We enjoyed every minute. Once you do an Azamara cruise you will have a hard time settling for anything else.

Great Cruise Line, Great Itinerary, Too Many Days At Sea

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Azamara is a great experience.  While it is more expensive, you get what you pay for in service, food and a great ship.  Our only criticism of this particular itinerary is that there are too many days at sea.  There are 2 1/2 to start the trip. That is too many.  A stop in Jamaica, which the ship passes by on the way to Colombia, would help.

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.

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.

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.

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.

San Juan to Miami December 2016

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

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.

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.
