Azamara Quest

October 2016 - Azamara Quest to Caribbean

Another Terrific Azamara Cruise

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.

Azamara Journey

January 2016 - Azamara Journey to Panama Canal, Central America

Another Great Azamara experience

Entire crew did a great job of meeting every need.  Food was better than expected with great variety.  Love the small ports Azamara features. Wine selection was excellent.  Azamazing Evening was a lot of fun.

EElwin's Tips

Miami, Florida - The Hop on Hop off excursion left a lot to be desired. We hung around the port for an hour before they left.
Barcelona, Spain - We've been to Barcelona before. We walked into the city, but there is a port shuttle, as some might think it is a little far. You don't need the ship's shuttle.
Genoa, Italy - You can just about walk anywhere. This is a beautiful city that you don't hear much about.
Casablanca, Morocco - A trip to see the mosque is well worth it. Walk through the Medina and make sure you go to the far end.
MSC Fantasia MSC Fantasia - If you think the buffet will be crowded, try coming in from the back where there is often more seating available. Also, if you come in the front, don't necessarily stop there for food. Many of the items are repeated as you proceed to the rear and there may be less crowding.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Didn't go to Labadee. Ended up in Falmouth Jamaica instead where the Azamazing Evening was held. Event was outstanding with band Third World playing.
Miami, Florida - Great cruise terminal, but didn't spend time in Miami.
Panama Canal Transit - Always wanted to transit the canal and was not disappointed. Would do it again.
