Azamara Journey - 10- Day Athens to Venice

Sail Date: June 23, 2016

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We really enjoyed the size of the Journey, especially for cruising the Greek Isles and Adriatic, and are probably going to look for similar ships for future cruising. No more large boats for us. However, what really sets Azamara apart in our minds was the staff - from the crew to the wait staff. On this ship, the captain (Johannes Tysse) and the cruise director (Eric De Gray) are in a league of their own and a lot of fun but everyone was super courteous and helpful. 


The only thing I would look for next time is for a less port-intensive trip. As nice as the islands were, we both would have enjoyed a day or 2 more at sea just to enjoy the ship's amenities. Also should mention that having access to a laundry room was awesome. It really cut down on the amount of clothing we had to bring.

Cabin / Stateroom
We splurged on the veranda suite for our anniversary and glad we did given the 90+ degree temperatures. However, the room was one of the smallest we have ever had so of questionable value since we didn't spend much time in it. We probably would have had it been larger.
