Review summary

The food and wine was beyond my expectations.  I am not a frequent cruiser and this was my first on Azamara.  The Discoveries restaurant was very nice and I wish I would have dined there earlier in the cruise.  It was much better than the open dining (and more casual) buffet type restaurant.  

The staff was excellent.  Very professional and courteous - always on top of refilling drinks or clearing your table.  

I was glad to purchase the internet package, but wished it was faster and could handle more than one person in my party.  We constantly had to switch off which was annoying.

I purchased the five bottle wine upgrade, but found the standard wines they served each day was more than adequate for my taste.

Will look to Azamara again as a first choice, but would love to have a room with a balcony in the future.

Cabin / Stateroom

We were above something mechanical which was very loud on two mornings. Liked that we were close to the elevator/stairs and the 5th floor where the casino, bar and food options were located. I would prefer in the future to look at the 6th floor and a room with a balcony.

Ship tip

Bring a backpack. It was nice to shop and go to the beaches and have an easy way to transport your sunscreen and beach gear. St. Barth's was by far the best island we visited. Very upscale. Antigua had the most beautiful beach (Dickerson's) but felt the island was very poor. Would not go solo.
