Breathtaking Bucket List Destination by Docntx

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: South America

Excellent ship, overall good value. Excursions seemed a bit steep, although run well. Ship seems to have minor problems surprising for being the youngest of the fleet. Captain and crew are exceptional. Minor questions: Why no outside temperature included in all the ship info? Why have HD TVs and only SD programming?

Great value and awesome service and staff by deaneanddebv

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: South America

We really liked Azamara. The inclusions make it a good value. We had lived in South America so we did not do any tours but it is nice to have overnights. The service and people really are amazing.

Not as good as expected by EdFLondon

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

All the pluses first Number of people in front of me at check-in at 11am: ZERO Boarding group number 4, and it looked like there were about 10 people (max) in each boarding group Had to wait for the Patio (and buffet) to open at noon. "Suffered" by lounging on the plush pool chairs. I really liked the Patio. Ate there twice. The cabin: Wonderful The sheets And those large plush pillows Plus, the mattress topper was so good that I could not feel the split between the two beds Also noticed that the curtains and drapes were much nicer, heavier than others. That quality feel The negative: the bathroom: smallest I’ve ever had and not the greatest water pressure in the sink or the shower Big towels, tho , almost too big, if that’s possible And those little sweets every night on the dish. Nice touch. The coffee table didn't match the decor and is in the way. Moved it Not a glaring colour in sight anywhere: no turquoise, no red battling with orange. The Den and The Living Room are amazing spaces, so was the Cabaret Discoveries: the food was amazing - both breakfast and dinner as an example: Sunday night dinner: over-baked salmon. Delicious (not a word I use often) and, when I lifted the salmon off the asparagus and potato under-parts, there were the two asparagus, perfectly crossed in an X, and I mean perfectly placed. Waiting: for anything: negligible…. Zero checking in, zipped through boarding, I think there were a max of three couples ahead of me getting into dinner. And especially disembarking: where I am used to long, long queues in large, large groups: nada. Walk off when I wanted Which leads me to the negatives: No served breakfast on the last day. That was a surprise. On NCL and on Celebrity, there is a full-service breakfast on the last day (as well as the buffet). I was really surprised that, on the last day, in Discoveries, it was a buffet. Granted, a nice enough one, including the carved ham station, but, still, buffet. Not the best in meeting my expectation. Also, surprised that there was no served lunch on embarkation day. Again, on all the other cruises I’ve been on, except Pullmantur, the MDR has been open for embarkation lunch. I did go to the buffet once: on the first day, for chocolate dessert which I took back to The Patio. It really was as much as a scrum as any other line – tho in a smaller space. Service: this is where Azamara did not meet my expectations. At that price, I expected near-flawless service. Three (negative) examples: I ate at the Patio on embarkation day. That went fine. I ordered chicken wings, then cold soup, then a burger. Came one at a time. But when I ate there on Saturday, I ordered chicken wings and a salmon burger and the wings and the burger arrived at the same time. Not a good move. It meant one wasn't was warm as it should've been by the time I got to it. Dinner on Sunday: the waiter plopped down a Caesar salad that belonged two tables to my left. And then gave me French onion soup when I had ordered clam chowder. The guy next to me ordered a steak medium rare, and it wasn’t. His wife was a bit disappointed too, and they’re frequent Azamara people. Twice, my sparkling water glass got topped up with still water. Granted, they were constantly asking to refill the wine, but they usually asked if I wanted more water AS they were pouring it in They were also not the most pleasant and engaging service staff in The Patio. Almost surly. Would I cruise AZ again: yes, with a couple of conditions -- it would need to be a more special itinerary and I would not pay a premium of more than a few hundred dollars

Not so Azamazing Pursuit Cruise by debraalt22

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

The directors need to work more closely together for better guest experience. New cruise director needs better training. Hotel director very seasoned & great leader. However food disappointing. Spa was terrible & should be removed from the ship!!!

This was our almost ideal South America Adventure by barry69

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: South America

We love Azamara among the other cruise companies for the small size of the ship, the good food, the great cabins, the excellent service, and the great ports of call they have chosen. We generally do not mind the lesser quality of onboard activities, and shows provided on the Pursuit but have suggested they increase the quality of these activities.

South American Cruise by howardapage

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: South America

We enjoyed our cruise around South America. South America was not high on our list of places to visit, but we learned a lot and saw a lot. I don’t know if I would return or not, but some places, such as Monttvideo, Punta Del Este and Buenos Aires would be worth visiting again. I would not return to Lima Peru. There is a nice shopping center along the coast and the Fountains Park are great. That’s about it though. While visiting South America, which is a long way from our home, we found it was worth extra time to visit Iguazu Falls, especially since it is quite close.

It was a great, relaxing, well-paced time at sea! by jnbadams

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: Transatlantic

Excellent but should have free WiFi or as an option for free alcohol Excellent use of all space including eliminating cascino. Open access to captain and other crew (promoted relaxation and enjoyment.) Presentation by skilled entertainers appreciated. (History lecturer disorganized) Instructor on I-phone etc. dedicated and timely. Change of itinerary handled well. Many food stations really enjoyed.

Missed the two best ports due to weather; the ship is too small and lacks variety in food, entertainment, decks, excursions....disappointing for a high end cruise. The staff however was amazing and unparalleled in service. by dslglfpt

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

38th anniversary cruise was so disappointing although the bad weather- flooding and 90 mph winds when we reached Livorno was not the ship's fault. I think Azamara could have done more to substitute/compensate than require you to book another cruise. The ship is too small for us; too little variety; too sedentary. But lovely staff and you are treated well. The special events are great and the food then is also. Otherwise not worth it.

Interesting Ports by pcreedsmith

The ports were interesting and easily explored on ones own if sufficient research had been done.

Journey to Beauty by barbdevir

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

This cruise was pretty much what I expected. There are a few wrinkles to be worked out on the ship like no interactive TV. Everything (booking excursions, checking bills, etc.) must be done in person. You can do all of this 24/7 at guest relations if offices are closed. Also furniture in stateroom was not well arranged which made getting around the cabin difficult. We never sat on the couch! It was too hard to get to. As always, Azamara was great.

Azamazing Aegean by bejacob

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

A truly fantastic experience. Our itinerary changed slightly due to weather, but the substitute ports were wonderful. I can't think of a better way to see the Greek islands than by cruise. The ship and crew were amazing. Everything was first rate. Both the Azamazing Evenings event and the White Nights party were so much fun. I can't wait to get on board another Azamara cruise.

Fabulous Ship, Captain and Crew by Pboothe

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Azamara Pursuit / Destination: South America

This was our first Azamara cruise and we were so impressed with everything, we decided that we will be an Azamara Customer for life. The service was fabulous and with a smile. The food in the dining room was fabulous and the menu had many choices. Pool area had some shade with lounge chairs to get out of the sun. The gym was great with a view, plenty of equipment and area for yoga and Pilates classes, spin cycle classes. They offered watercolor painting , jewelry making, and needlepoint classes at no charge. The 3 piece live band played prior to dinner and after dinner. We danced almost every night. There were a variety of shows with 2 seatings. The Captain Carl and Cruise directorTony were always around smiling and available if you had any questions. The ship was very bright and very clean. If you have never been on an Azamara Cruise, YOU Should Go On One, You will not be Disappointed. We have been on other cruise lines and we were VERY impressed with Azamara!!!!
