Azamara Pursuit

Azamara Pursuit - Azamara

Pro: Beautifully renovated ship that offers intimate spaces and lively atmosphere.

Con: Most cabins, especially the bathrooms, are small and feel tight.

Bottom Line: Perfectly sized to sail into more remote ports; the shore experience is integrated onboard.

We were on the intensive Croatia cruise. Previously we have sailed on Royal Caribbean and Princess Cruise. Azamara was a delight in comparison. No constant high pressure sales, small ship, the all inclusive, and mature passengers made for a relaxing cruise. The staff were exceptional. Our room was quickly seen to every morning and evening and was always clean and everything we needed was always provided. Regarding the Veranda cabin bathroom, it is small, but the shower is ridiculous small. I am 5’8” and 135lbs and it was a tight squeeze for me. We loved the over all decor of the ship. We just wonder how they manage to keep the light carpets and furniture clean! The food was plentiful with many options while not outstanding it was not bad either. The White night and chocolate buffet were a lot of fun and amazing. We were in a port everyday and on the go all day so did not have time or energy for any of the entertainment that was offered. The free laundry was great although extremely crowded on the day we embarked. We found the Azamara excursions to be way over priced so with the exception of two excursion we booked our own. My only complaint was directions on getting to San Basilio and disembarking. We planned on taking a train to Venice and did not want to deal with water transportation to San Basilio. Azamara was of no help with this issue. After researching we found that by taking a train to Mestre we could hire a driver who took us directly by land to the port. On the day of disembarkation we had a driver picking us up at 6:30 am. Again I could not get any information out of Azamara before we boarded regarding what time we could disembark. Once on the ship we had to speak to three different customer staff members to get us on the list to disembark early. A little unnecessary anxiety. All in all we highly recommend Azamara and this Croatian cruise. Read Less

Our first Azamara was on the 8-day Croatian Intensive out of Venice. Previously we have cruised Celebrity and quite a few on RC. We were delighted with the experience. No one pushing drinks, spa service or pricey add-ons. Standard beer, wine and cocktails are included. The only option is for a high end drink package. We did not buy that but had excellent wines. We seldom encountered question lines anywhere and the staff was uniformly delightful. The excursions were well done, the Azamazing evening was incredible and White Night was a lot of fun. We enjoyed the more mature group on board, and met fascinating, friendly people. The food was uniformly good at every venue. Captain Tony was visible and accessible, as was CD Tony and the rest of the crew. We read previous staff reviews, but this crew seemed to be jelling nicely. I’m afraid, though, that this was a costly cruise...as we are spoiled now and cannot return to the bustling crowds, belly flop contests and waiting lines of less costly cruises. Read Less

Over the years, I have been privileged to sail on forty cruises. These cruises were on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Disney, Holland America, Cunard, Princess, NCL and some other lines that don’t even exist any longer. Out of all of those cruises, Azamara was simply the best. I am confused as to the Azamara Pursuit’s low ratings and inconsistent reviews. I concluded that since I am moving up from mass market ships, that maybe a reason why I feel that this cruise was really one of my best. People moving from higher level lines such as Seaborn, Silversea and the like would possibly be disappointed. Azamara is not a true luxury cruise line they live in between premium lines like Celebrity and luxury lines like Seaborn. Azamara, Oceania, Viking Ocean and Windstar are considered deluxe cruise lines in between premium lines (like Celebrity) and luxury lines like (Seaborn). I think if people understand and set their expectations correctly, they will enjoy a cruise on Azamara. What I loved about this cruise was the size of the ship, easy to get around and lines were a minimal. What a pleasure it was to not wait to be seated for dinner or for an elevator. The service was, for the most part excellent. The ports were fantastic and staying late is a nice feature. The particular Azamara cruise I sailed on was a Croatia intensive voyage. If you get a chance to visit this part of the world, take it. The ports were beautiful and historic. The décor on the Pursuit was very stylish and the ship looked brand new even though it has been sailing for many different cruise lines for the past 18 years of her life. I especially enjoyed the Azamazing evening and the White Night Party. All unique and gave the cruise a special touch. Food was also plentiful and mostly of high quality. The included drinks were enough for me as I drink very sparingly. I would have like to have seen more port/historical lectures. We had a gentlemen who presented on each port and he was great. I wish he could have done even more seminars on the history and geography of the region. I think Azamara could do more learning activities such as Cunard. Also, boarding in Venice could have been handled better however I think these issues have to do more with the port of Venice than Azamara. I will definitely be returning back to Azamara soon, it truly was the best cruise I have been on. Read Less
