Most passengers were in their 60's and 70's. They have no activities for small children.
Best Food, Best Service and Best Employees
Take advantage of what the ship has to offer. The exclusions were well done. I believe they may have been expensive but well done.
Expect to meet lovely people from all over the world. Most are seasoned travelers. Ship is a sweet vessel,
This is not a cruise for small kids that need to be entertained. I think even teens would be bored. It is a great ship for adults but it isn't just "older" adults, either. Bring magnetic hooks for the walls in your cabin so that you have additional storage options.
All dining is "country club casual." The 60 to 70 aged cruisers tend to be well-heeled and have had their share of tuxes and ties. I loved that I never even needed the sports jacket I brought with me.
This is not a cruise for younger couples.
Leave the kids at home and take someone special with you. Make sure you like to eat, and not on a diet when you step on this boat.
Consider another high end cruiseline. As a Celebrity loyalist, we thought Azamara would be superior. It was not and this was a sentiment many others guests shared with us during the cruise. The good thing was that the poor experience united many cruisers and we made the best of it. We all vowed not to cruise Azamara again since there are so many other choices.
You won't find a friendlier shippingp
Be sure to sign up and attend the “AzAmazing Evening”.
The Azzaretto's thought that the Azamara was Azamazing!
Be prepared for a small ship.
Go on some other cruise line.
Get to the Living Room" early, if you want a good seat. It is very popular and offers a fabulous view of the scenery.
The back of the boat (from the rear elevator to nearly the back) buzzes with engine noise. So, if vibration bothers you, you might want to be mindful of where you select your cabin. The small ship really makes the journey more personable than a larger vessel. We will go again!
Book your special dinners in Prime C or Aqualina prior to embarkation as they are mostly booked-out by the start of the cruise.
Be sure to know your ports as the biggest shortcoming of this cruise was lack of knowledge even to the point of first ever incorrect booking by the land tour staff.
This was mostly older folks.
Don't hesitate to see the ships medical staff if you have an issue. One of our friends slipped on the stairs and hurt her hand. She stopped in to see the doctor. They did a full exam including an xray. No charge, no hassle.
