gkelley949's Tips

Azamara Quest Azamara Quest - Tell people to not bring any kind of pocket knife on board. They confiscated (but returned upon disembarkation with some confusion) my husband's that he has been taking on board other cruises for many years. It has a few gadgets--is just a standard Swiss army knife--not a large blade or anything.
Venice, Italy - We had been there before so skipped the main sights of Doge's Palace, St Mark's Basilica. We took the back streets guided walking tour which was great. Venice was very, very crowded--difficult to walk and it got pretty warm in the afternoon. Would never want to go there in the summer.
Hvar, Croatia - There's really not much there and the shore excursion that we took for $135 USD PP was absolutely not worth it. They should substitute another port.
Koper, Slovenia - The Azamazing Evening was in Tito square, walking distance from the ship. It was over the top. Our shore excursion was to Ljubljana which was great. Wish we could have spent more time there, but it was an hour & 15 min bus ride to the ship. Included lunch was just OK.
Dubrovnik, Croatia - Beautiful city, but a lot of tourists. We had been there before and don't remember it being crowded like it was that day. If you have time take the tour to walk the wall (and not on your own).
Zadar, Croatia - Very nice and walkable from one side to the other. No need to take a shore excursion. Lots of nice squares, parks, churches. Easy to see on your own.
Kotor, Montenegro - Loved it and the visit to the nearby city of Budva. both very scenic. The ship was docked directly on the promenade of the old walled city of Kotor. Stuff was relatively inexpensive.
Korcula Island, Croatia - Loved it. It's about a 3 hour town, which worked out good because the ship departed there at 2PM. Glorious pine treed promenade along the water with lots of scenic views and waterfront restaurants. Take the walking tour shore excursion.
Wurzburg, Germany - The Residenz (staircase & ceiling especially) and the chapel at the Residenz.
Avalon Passion Avalon Passion - Find out how many locks you will encounter before deciding on your itinerary. This route included 66 locks which was time consuming
