Spring Bay, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands
Everything was seamless and professional. I’ve never experienced a cruise before that was so easy and relaxed. I really appreciated no lines; No lines to get on the ship, disembark at ports, at dinner, or at the buffet. And the never-ending glass of wine with dinner was wonderful. My cousin and I met the nicest people, and we became friends with a couple who had a suite, so we had several cocktail parties in their suite stateroom, very nicely prepared by their butler.
The size of the ship was perfect! And it really restored my love of cruises, as it was similar to the more refined cruise atmosphere I used to love in the 80′s. The port experiences was outstanding!!! Who knew Malta was such a great place! We thoroughly enjoyed ALL our ports of call in Santorini, Malta, Sicily and our 2 days in Sorrento. It most cases we were the first ship in port each day, and we were always the last one to leave. The port times really does make for a true immersion experience. I felt sorry for all the other cruise lines guests that would hurry their shopping or relaxing to make it back to their ships by 5pm. But to our benefit it really paid off, and we stayed in the towns late and really had the place to ourselves. It was great!

Discoveries restaurant – food came out HOT for each course. Wonderful. Delicious entrees and excellent presentation. Quality of meat could be re-examined.
Milena, hostess in Discoveries – Appreciated how she asked “REMIND me of your stateroom number” and not “WHAT is your stateroom number” Smart move to have nightly chocolates made on the ship and not pre-packaged. Delicious and a nice variety. Nice to see crew being rewarded with incentives – they had a double-discount night in the shops for Christmas Teak lounge chairs with thick cushions were nice by the pool Appreciated complimentary wine, sodas, waters and specialty coffees Chairs in buffet and Discoveries were difficult to scoot in under the table
“Late departures like this one (12-night Mediterranean cruise from Athens to Rome) were the norm and the 694-passenger Azamara Journey, a luxe ship with a laid-back vibe: resort casual dress code, no formal nights, elegant but understated décor, a layout that avoids bottlenecks, and crew as attentive and intuitive as boutique hotel staff.”
Life Is All About Time
“From the first stopover in Mykonos, I squeezed something extra into days spent in captivating Mediterranean tours loaded with historic sites and ruins—Azamara Journey’s late departures made all the difference. And, let’s face it, life is all about time.”
