Norway by hoffdave

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

If want to see wonderful scenery, a great cruise.(Hope for good weather which we had, otherwise would be a real disappointment) Ports are small Norwegian villages mostly catering to tourists which in this case is ok as they don't, most of them, feel overly touristy. Azamara a good value, above par food, excellent service, ok included wines and spirits, ok entertainment (some good, some not so good). The ship is not the destination as on larger vessels, rather the ports visited.

Terrific cruise of Scotland and Ireland by LaughalotTN

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship was very nice with great food, staff, environment and entertainment. Ports were great, but unfortunately we spent too much time and money on the ship's excursions. We should have focused more on the towns close by.

Many Great Ports of Call by wrschonf

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The employees are fantastic. They are friendly and seem to be genuinely interesting in doing whatever they can to make your cruise a success. In a similar vein, the Captain is always there to greet you and to send you off personally at each port. NO company could do a better job in these respects.

This was our first time with Aramara and we are looking forward to our next on board experience. The two special evening events, White Night and Azamazing Evenging will provide wonderful lasting memories.

As expected. Just keep as is and I will be back. by medgorfajn

You have to stop unneeded noise from very high set amplifiers penetrating up to 7 levels. Also how came Oceania on same ship doesn't have this problem?

Disappointing for such an amazing itinerary. by Jeves

Would recommend another cruiseline since there are so many. We cruised Azamara because we thought it would be better than Celebrity. It was not.

Azamara was a fantastic choice for a cruise. Would highly recommend this cruise line and this itinerary in the Mediterranean Region was especially enjoyable. The weather was perfect and we hope to cruise again!

Amazing,would definitely do it again by crnaikirt

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Excellent, from working with Hayley who helped set up my trip through the complete trip I loved it. Really great educational and yet relaxing trip.inhad little time for rest on the tour days and enjoyed the sea days when they came. My one difficulty was WIFi. I feel it should be not as expensive and more readily available.

Wine and Tapas by TomRichard

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Azamara provides a quality experience.  The ship is just the right size for us at 680 passengers (not too big, not too small).  The food was consistently excellent at all venues.  Open seating at dinner is much appreciated. The all-inclusive pricing is truly that and there was no pressure to spend more.  The staff could not be friendlier.  The captain made himself very visible and bid us a good tour each day and welcomed us back as we return.  Cruise Director, Eric De Grey, is a talented entertainer and a friendly, visible person during the cruise.  The entertainment staff , especially the 7-piece ship orchestra, is talented and energetic.  The special Azamazing Evening on shore is unique and wonderfully planned.  Azamara is an overall great cruise line for middle agers (no children-friendly facilities or events).

Another pleasurable Azamara trip by xox

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Probably the favorite parts of the trip was the friendly and helpful staff and the wonderful ports of call. The Christmas evening entertainment was disappointing. There were beautiful voices on board and a program of Christmas carols and popular Christmas songs perhaps with some sing-alongs interspersed would have been more much appropriate than the tacky skit. Cruise Director Erik is very talented but he needs to slow his presentations (particularly intercom announcements) down so the older passengers can comprehend the information he is imparting. Lastly, we questioned the scheduling of the White Night party - why not have it during a night at sea rather than competing with shore excursions during a night in port?

Christmas and New Years in Indonesia by TexCruise

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We greatly enjoyed our Azamara cruise. They went out of their way for it to be a festive time. The service was excellent, the food was good, and the itinerary had enough diversity of shore time and at sea.

 

Some of the features in the room were showing wear, which is surprising since they just did their major refurb. But, it did not diminish our enjoyment of the cruise.

Nice Ship, Exotic Ports by Cruiser455

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We've been on Azamara before and we like the smaller ship experience. There are no crowds, it's easy to get around the ship, and the food is excellent. The entertainment is more cabaret style than big productions, but equally entertaining. The Journey was recently refurbished so everything looked new and in good condition. The entry level suite far surpasses any mini suite we've had on other cruise lines.

 

We went to Hong Kong, Viet Nam, Thailand and Singapore. The life styles there are very different than western countries. We visited a lot of Buddhist temples and shrines. The local food is also good to try, as long as you have someone with you that can help you choose wisely. English is also not commonly spoken in Viet Nam and Thailand so having a guide fluent in English can be helpful. Singapore and Hong Kong are large modern cities where English is spoken everywhere and it is easy to get around on your own.

Interesting Ports by pcreedsmith

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our reason for choosing the Azamara Journey cruise was ease of access to Middle East countries: Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, and the UAE were our destinations. We learned a lot about the customs and traditions of the area. Since ,most days were spent in port, it was unlike a traditional cruise with lots of onboard activities.

Great Ports...Really Great Passengers by rcalabre

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Azamara did a great job selecting the ports on this relocation cruise.  From the ports of call in Italy, Crete, sailing through the Suez Canal and the ports in Jordan, Oman and finally Dubai were amazing.  The port information provided by the staff and onboard port specialists made touring the towns on our own easy and very interesting.  

 

My only suggestion for the ports would be to spend more time in each port, but that would add many days t o this 17 day adventure.  Great Job Azamara!

Rome Roundtrip by Cruiser39663119

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Loved all the ports and time in each. Ease of getting off and on ship major plus, tenders ran frequently and easily.

Appreciated the reasonable spa deals/specials offered daily. The "Head to Toe" package I purchased was a great value and totally worth it!  Samantha did not disappoint either.

All staff was courteous, hard working and always smiling and willing to go the extra mile. 

Would mention that Guest Services should be fully staffed and functioning at capacity on sea days and before the cruise is ending.

Fantastic voyage by mcaston11

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The cruise was great.  Azamara is an amazing cruise line, with little extras added in as the cruise progresses. The cabin stewards are thorough, helpful and friendly, and willing to go out of their way to fill your needs.

The amazing evening was an outing to Ephesus, to experience a local string orchestra play for us at the Odeon, an ancient amphitheater. We sat in the ancient seats and listened to the orchestra play a diverse mixture of music.  Truly magical, to be able to experience such an unexpected evening.

Another treat was a cookout with fresh fish that the dining crew procured locally for us.  Fresh fish, out of the water that morning, cooked over the open grills on the upper deck.  I am spoiled for any supermarket fish ever again.

Another treat was fresh lobster procured locally and grilled for us.  These are the extras that Azamara provides that make it a memorable cruise experience.

The self-service laundry is a huge bonus.
