Azamara Quest provides authentic service, destination-inspired programs, and an intimate, boutique hotel atmosphere. Azamara's signature AzAmazing Evening events deliver exclusive and immersive onshore experiences, while onboard, Quest offers cabaret-style entertainment that includes three unique musical shows. A Million Dreams pays tribute to classic love songs, featuring music by Whitney Houston, Adele, Bruno Mars, and Elvis. The Night Spot highlights gathering places around the globe, including a Las Vegas lounge and a swanky cigar bar, with music by favorites such as Cher, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, and Billy Joel. The trio of performances is rounded out by His Song — The Music of Elton John. The ship's Cabaret Lounge also transforms into 54 Below at Sea for a special Broadway experience.

This beloved R-class cruise ship, which originally sailed for Renaissance Cruises,  also offers plenty of opportunities for learning and enrichment, including line-dancing classes, expert talks on a multitude of regional topics, and port-of-call lectures that offer travelers insights into the destinations they're visiting. The ship also features the luxurious Sanctum Spa, which has a fitness center, thalassotherapy pool, and dedicated space for acupuncture treatments. In addition to its outdoor pool area, which includes two whirlpools, an open-air bar, and tennis tables, Quest also has a jogging and power-walking track, and an on-deck game area.

Azamara Quest was refurbished in 2019 and now boasts an updated gift shop, six additional oceanview cabins, and The Den, a sophisticated lounge with comfortable seating, live music, and a concierge desk where destination experts help cruisers optimize their time onshore.

Itineraries and Departure Ports

From 3-night weekend getaways to epic 24-night itineraries, Azamara Quest offers a variety of country-intensive voyages designed to let travelers immerse themselves in the culture and spirit of their destination. Quest departs from ports worldwide and sails to a multitude of exciting global locales, including Africa, Asia, South America, Europe, and the Caribbean.

This ship is best for: Like the other ships in Azamara's fleet, Quest's small size gives it access to ports that larger ships can't reach, making it the ideal ship for travelers seeking unique itineraries with bucket-list destinations. Many of the vessel's onboard activities are designed to complement ports of call for a truly immersive experience.

You should know: Azamara Quest was designed with mature travelers in mind. With no dedicated children's program and few activities to attract the under-18 crowd, this ship won't appeal to families or multigenerational groups that include young children.

Activities on Azamara Quest

From the Cabaret Lounge where cruisers enjoy vibrant musical stage performances to The Drawing Room, a tranquil onboard library, Azamara Quest has a variety of comfortable gathering places. Cruisers can find conversation and cocktails at Discoveries Lounge, while the Mosaic Cafe is the ideal place to people-watch over a cup of espresso.

For relaxation, take a dip in Sanctum Spa's saltwater thalassotherapy pool or try a rejuvenating acupuncture treatment. The ship also offers a fresh-air game area for cruisers who prefer to relax with a shuffleboard tournament and a dedicated sun deck for soaking in the rays. Travelers who appreciate learning experiences should enjoy the wealth of onboard enrichment opportunities, which include cooking demonstrations, wine tasting, and lectures on a variety of globally relevant topics.

Interesting trip by Lemoore27

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A lot of Visa problems never before experienced. China holidays the main problem. Azamara compensation for problem was fine. Cheap cruises support great, Andrea Whitby. Azamara ship staff remained steadfast thru a difficult period. Service and amenities onboard were outstanding. Even with the China visa problems, we enjoyed the cruise very much.

A Voyage of Wonderment & Beauty by frenchda23

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

As usual, sailing with Azamara was a pleasure. This my tenth voyage was a time to meet old acquaintances among the crew and to become acquainted with interesting fellow passengers. I would recommend that Azamara institute a policy of no hats or caps in the dining areas. After all, we are on a luxury ship and not at a tailgate gettogether. There is not much to add. There were no unpleasant surprises. They exceeded our expectations based on the nine previous trips concerning the comfort of the suite.

Wonderful Alaskan Cruise by sacaine18

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Azamara is an outstanding value in the premium space. I would rate Regent and Crystal generally higher but Azamara is comparable but has a price point that is usually significantly lower.

46 Azamara Quest Tips

Listen to the daily forecast and dress appropriately. Take your sunscreen and a bottle of water with you whenever you leave the ship. Don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it. It is available up to the point you board the bus. Let staff know of your needs in advance of going ashore.

It is hot and humid in most of these ports. Be sure to plan for this. Bring a hat and sunscreen. The tours and ship provide water. The information given about what to wear to visit the temples was conflicting. Be prepared with clothes to cover your shoulders and legs.
