Our review

Snapshot

Reading about how Azamara Club Cruises delivers destination-rich cruise experiences does not do the line justice. But when you are sailing to exotic ports of call or visiting places off the beaten path, then you get what all the buzz is about.

On board you will enjoy complimentary amenities that include select standard spirits, beer and wine. Also, your cruise fare includes gratuities, bottled water, soft drinks, specialty coffees and teas, English butler service for suite guests, self-service laundry, shuttle service to and from most port communities, and concierge services.

The ships’ intimate size fosters a feeling of community. Staff and crew quickly learn guests’ names and interests, and guests develop easy friendships with each other and with their favorite bartenders, waiters and attendants. Azamara officers are a big part of ship life, frequently joining guests on deck, in dining rooms, and at social events.

About Ratings & awards

Cruises on this ship

Destination-focused travel & club-like hospitality

Because of the size of the ship, you will grow to love the prime docking locations Journey gets, which tend to be close to city centers, shopping and nightlife.

Life on board Azamara Journey is relaxed. Since the ship tends to spend longer days in port, there is never the feeling that the ship is overrun with people. Also, the staff members go out of their way to make you feel at home.

Ways to connect 

  1. Participate in AzAmazing Evenings. Azamara organizes these complimentary events that let you see authentic cultural entertainment.
  2. Book a Land Discovery tour purpose-built for small groups. Be on the lookout for the new Insider Access Land Discoveries that take small-group visits to private homes, estates and farms, where hosts bring local traditions to life through a shared meal.
  3. Choose a Nights and Cool Places group tour, which features arts, architecture and scenery after nightfall.

What it's like on board

Refurbished in late 2012, Azamara Journey features refreshed accommodations and an architecturally interesting interior design. At the heart of the ship is an impressive staircase that can't be missed. 

Eating is an event on Azamara Journey, there are a variety of options that include the main dining room and two specialty restaurants. In addition there is 24-hour room service and a variety of bars (including a juice bar).
