One of the reasons on deciding to do this cruise starting in Auckland was to meet up with a relative who emigrated to New Zealand back in the 70s. Mission accomplished! On the itinerary, there were several ports in Eastern Australia which we had not previously visited and by sailing back-to-back it afforded us the opportunity to explore ports within Indonesia, and revisit Singapore. Despite its age, the Ship looked in fine condition, and was wonderfully clean and well-presented. In fact, no different to our last cruise in October last year. Therefore, we were surprised to learn it was going into dry-dock for a week for refit/modifications in Singapore. Embarkation in Auckland went very smoothly. This was our third time on the Quest (and our fourth time with Azamara), and it was great to see some familiar faces among the staff when we came aboard. Can honestly say we've always found the staff on Azamara ships to be well-trained, courteous, and helpful, yet very friendly. They are indeed exceptional people so it is no wonder they are offered repeat contracts. The entertainment offered on the ship in the evening, (Cabaret Lounge), is not high on our list of priorities, much preferring instead to listen to the ship's talented musicians on board, individuals and groups, who frequent the different lounges. However, pleased to note the 10-minute short plays and then the four opera singers, have been superseded with the return of the ship's company of 'singers and dancers'. Praise be! Although, tongue in cheek, one of the opera singers is still on board in another guise? On this B2B cruise, we've had two AzAmazing evenings, two 'White Night' events, and then two 'Chocolate Buffets' - so, what's not to like? And, delicious food, always. Have booked further cruises for next year!
