A great cruising holiday
"We chose this cruise because we have always wanted to visit St Petersburg and the 2 day stop at this city did not let us down. We chose the 2 day package and visited the Winter Palace (The Hermitage), the Summer..."Read More

Another great Azamara cruise but the need to be aware of the competition

We returned to Azamara after our first voyage last year on the Quest. We found that the two ships were almost similar although we preferred the artwork on the Quest better than the Journey. Else, everything was equal and the service continued to be excellent. We thought that the main dining room's menu had drastically improved over the past year and featured a more wide-ranging assortment of ...

Very predictable Azamara - no surprises

We chose this cruise as it gave us the longest time in St. Petersburg. Also as we live in Scotland, leaving from Edinburgh was a bonus! We'd been on the Journey twice before and in truth we've mainly gone by itinerary. In April/May we were fortunate to take the 3 week Spice Route cruise which was amazing. It was fun and seemed to have a 'friendlier' and more laid back feel but apart from ...

This cruise was selected to celebrate our anniversary and to get out of the extreme summer heat of Florida! Azamara only offered the one sailing for this itinerary, or we'd have selected another time to go since it was PEAK tourist season in all the ports of call. That made the trip stressful at times dealing with the thousands of visitors and hundreds of busses at tight venues, particularly in ...

As a 51 year old travel agent, i have been on many different cruise lines and the thought of travelling to the norwegian fjords on the back watch in september filled me with dread - how wrong was i !!! Surprisingly there was a very mixed age group on board, yes a lot of older guest's yet many my own age and younger. We were in an outside cabin on deck 2, the cabin had 2 portholes but yet ...

We chose the Edinburgh to Dublin itinerary because of the positive experience we had a few years ago on a Windstar cruise that disembarked in Edinburgh, and our desire to visit other interesting stops in Scotland and Ireland. We were not disappointed. Edinburgh is a lovely city, offering fantastic history, architecture, and pub food & drink. Upon arrival, we were pleased to learn that the ...

Taste of Iceland (and Faroes). Third F.O cruise. We have gradually moved up decks each cruise and travelled paying near top-price for a suite this time. Four negative experiences took the edge of an otherwise excellent cruise. They were: 1. F.O's paper map (and website) detailed the approach to the Rosyth port as via the town from the north. Like others including taxi drivers we found ...

My brother and I chose this cruise because of the small ship, to see the Norwegian fjords and not to spend too much time on the open sea. The staff were really good and friendly, the ship looking a little worn in places, but as it's going into dry dock soon, this will be dealt with. The food was good and for me excellent portion size. Activities on board still pitched toward the older ...

We chose this cruise because the size of the ship meant that it visited fjords other ships couldn't. It certainly didn't disappoint. The scenery was fantastic and we were lucky to have several sunny days, which enhanced the experience. Embarkation was easy because we were amongst the last few to board. However this meant that we were unlucky enough to miss the buffet as the muster drill was ...

I was a bit sceptical about my 7 night Scottish Island cruise on Marco Polo as I'd hear a few bad things about the ship, but have to say I had a great time. We chose this one based on the itinerary and were certainly not disappointed. The food was great and there was plenty of choice. We took the drinks package at £17.00pppn and it was worth it for us, but on board prices are very reasonable ...
