We loved the intimacy, close attention to detail, comfortable state rooms with terraces, ports of call and delectable food choices on this cruise!
The only criticism is the poor scheduling of the White Night . Scheduling this fabulous party on the last night of the cruise did not allow us to stay for long and really enjoy this wonderful event since we had to get up early to catch our return flight the next morning.
We choose this cruise because of the ports and tours. We did a tour in every city, so did not do a lot on the ship. We liked the smaller ship, but were a little disappointed overall. We have been on larger ships and this is billed as the top of the line and we just didn't see it. We had not cruised for 13 years, so maybe the next level is not as good now as it was then. If you like the iteniary, the tours and guides are fabulous. It is also fun to meet people from all over the world!
Enjoyed the itinerary which prompted my first time as an Azamara cruiser. Very friendly service and extras that I especially enjoyed, complementary wine and AzAmazing complementary evening in Gibraltar.
Overall the ship was beautiful. It is decorated in a somewhat formal style, but at the same time felt comfortable. It was very well laid out and very clean (hand sanitizer at every corner!). The service, food, and facilities were all top notch.
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.
