Review summary

All of the workers we talked to had prior cruise line experience and they all stated Azamara treated them the best which definitely showed in their work.  The Captain was extremely visible and social.  We only have 2 areas for improvement.  First, they should improve the quality of their in house entertainment.  The first production show of the cruise was like a high school musical production quality.  We didn't go to any other shows because of that.  Their guest musicians were of a high caliber but geared toward a much older crowd (piano and cello recitals).  Second, directions to/from the Pireaus port should be included with paperwork.  We got directions from hotel staff who said that the port was just across from the Metro station.  This is true.  But to get to slip 12 from #4 (where Metro station is closest to), it's a one mile walk.  And when this walk includes pushing 2 large suitcases and carrying a backpack in hot weather, it's a recipe for disaster.
