Great Cruise

Sail Date: June 04, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Room Type: Balcony

We cruised on the Azamara Quest. This is a ship that truly deserves its 5 Star rating. The port of calls were outstanding, the food fantastic. The captain was very accessible and I had discussions with him at least 10 times.

My wife made the comment after a couple of days at sea of "the question is whether we will ever cruise anyone but Azamara again?" This is how strongly we felt about the cruise.

Recommends Azamara Quest? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
THe dining room was exceptional. The speciality restaurants were even better
Cabin / Stateroom
Children's Programs
This is not a ship for children. We only saw a handful
Service and Staff
They were the best trained staff I have been around. Everyone seemed to be very happy.
Sorrento, Italy
You can take the train to Pompei for a couple of Euros. A ship provided shore excursion is not nece3ssaty here.
Don't Miss: Pompei
Chios (Khios), Greece
This is a beautiful little town. We walked to a near by beach that was a short walk down the waterfront. There was lots of sea glass at this beach
Istanbul, Turkey
The top sites are all right down town, a cheap taxi from the port.
Don't Miss: Get a turkish bath. It costs about $50 and takes a couple of hours, but is worth it.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Make sure you take the correct tour for you. We took the least costly one and it was not right for us.
Don't Miss: You have to go to Ephesus
Santorini, Greece
We went to the swimming area in Oia. It was at the end of a walkway down by the fishing village.
Don't Miss: Have some tomato balls. They taste esceptional
Mykonos, Greece
We took the excursion to Dios.
Don't Miss: Dios
Volos, Greece
We took a taxi to a near by beach. We then strolled down the waterfront.
Don't Miss: Have some Cipiro and appetizers at any of the waterside restaurants. Cheap and strong.
