We just finished our first Azamara cruise on the Journey. We really liked it. For the most part, I thought the food was very good. The buffets are not as big as on Celebrity or Royal. Really liked the patio (grill dining area). We never waited for a table (2 top, ate around 8pm) but did see some large groups waiting. I thought the service was great. I saw the captain more than on any other cruise. I liked the entertainment, but it’s definitely not big production shows. We really enjoyed the Azamazing evening and the white night, and the long times in ports. We got what we considered a very good deal, but we stayed in an inside cabin, which was small but worked fine for us. I was not sure I would like the small ship after sailing the mega-ships, but I really did. For the right price, and right itinerary, I would definitely sail Azamara again.
