Review summary

Old Ship that will be dry-docked next month for major refurbishment that should have taken place years ago. The ingrained dust in the stateroom and other areas of the ship caused allergic reactions for my wife and me, with runny noses and itchy eyes. The mattress was too soft, so my wife had to sleep on the love seat/small sofa bed. The menu in the main dining room was not five star, with little variety and creativity. However, the food on  Deck 9, where the Windows Cafe and the outdoor grill are located, produced much more variety and better food. Unfortunately, there was understaffing in the Windows Cafe on Deck 9, especially for dinners and even some lunches, because some of the staff was being shuttled between this venue and the main dining room.

Actually we were upgraded to stateroom with a veranda upon arrival (7101).

Ship tip

Take your own taxis around the islands for much less than cost of Azamara's excursions.
