  3. Azamara Pursuit
We returned at the end of last month after a brilliant two weeks on Azamara Pursuit. We chose this trip as we had always wanted to visit the Chilean Fiords and it was on our favourite cruise line. We found that overall the food was an improvement on previous cruises and compliment the chefs. It was always hot and well presented as well as delicious. Sometimes the portions were over generous but we coped. Our cabin was a balcony on deck seven which we prefer and it was kept spotless by Louis and his assistant. They were unobtrusive but there whenever you needed anything. The entertainment was as usual fairly low key but a great improvement on our last Azamara voyage. However you do not choose this line if you want non stop activities. The Azamazing evening in Montevideo was a real highlight and very well organised giving us a flavour of carnival. Unfortunately, due to weather conditions, we were not able to call at the Falklands which was a great disappointment especially to the British many of whom had booked this in order to visit this port. That is life and the Captain took the right decision judging by the storm that hit Buenos Aires a few days later. Other ports were as expected though again weather conditions curtailed some excursions. One issue was the high price of excursions especially at the substituted port of Puerto Madryn. Sea days we a delight -sailing through the Fiords ten the Beagle Channel. Glaciers and volcanos were everywhere. The best thing about Azamara is the staff from the Captain down. We often met Captain Carl around the ship and found him very likeable and efficient. It is hard to single anyone out as the service is really excellent but other staff that deserve a mention are Lee, the assistant Cruise Director and Tony, his boss. They were both lovely people and a credit to the company. We cannot wait to see them in Plymouth next year.

Fantastic Trip for scenery

Cabin Review

Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom
Cabin VX 6070
The cabin was quite compact but sufficient for our needs. There was plenty of storage space. In fact we did not use all of this.

The one issue was the dreaded shower curtain though this seems to have improved slightly from previous trips as the curtain is heavier.

The cabin was always kept spotless by Louis and his assistant who were in twice a day. It was nice to have chocolate treats at night.
