Recently I was invited on board Azamara Quest for a few hours while she was docked in my hometown of Southampton and I took this opportunity to take a full ship tour and, most importantly, check out the accommodations on board.
Azamara is well-known for being a fantastic premium cruise line with immersive itineraries and great onboard dining experiences, making them a great introduction to small ship luxury cruising.
Sophie was on board Azamara Pursuit last week, sailing around the south of Portugal and Spain! When asked to document the food experience on board, she didn't disappoint...
With a fleet of three ships and the latest, Onward, due to join service in 2022, Azamara will firmly establish themselves at the heart of the ‘mid/small ship’ category. Recently bought by a private equity firm from Royal Caribbean – things are certainly moving forwards for this exciting cruise brand.
"Last week, I embarked on a cruise with with my colleague Amy on board Azamara Journey. This has been my first ever cruise and prior to leaving I had quite a few unanswered questions. Mainly would the seas be kind and smooth?! My last experience of being on the water in any kind of vessel was a crossing I made from Menorca to Mallorca. Nothing like the cruise I was going on but the crossing was not great and didn’t leave me wanting to experience anything like that ever again.
It's safe to say that pretty much all of us at Panache have had an amazing summer getting back on board some of our preferred partners' brilliant ships - some of them brand new - and got that taste of post-pandemic cruising we have all been craving for so long. Last month, our lovely assistant Anita escaped our wet British autumn and enjoyed the last of the summer sun in Greece on board Azamara Journey. Here's what Anita had to say about her fantastic cruise with Azamara...
This summer, Panache Cruises' Admin Manager Lyndsay Cuddy spent a week on board Azamara Quest sailing around the Greek Islands. She was the first of the Panache Cruises team to get away and we were all extremely jealous - although as you may have seen, we all followed suit! Lyndsay has written all about her experience on board Quest on one of its first cruises back at sea.
