On the Azamara Journey, you'll feel more like you're staying at a boutique hotel than on a cruise ship. The ship's staterooms were refurbished in 2016 and were outfitted with high-end amenities and a sleek, contemporary interior design. Interior staterooms start at 158 square feet and feature a 40-inch flatscreen television, an in-room refrigerator stocked with bottled water and drinks, bedside reading lamps, and USB charging ports. Veranda staterooms measure up at 135 square feet, including the balcony, and suites range from 326 to 836 square feet, including balconies. Suite guests will benefit from particularly spacious rooms with a separate sitting area and sleeping area, 24-hour room service, daily fresh fruit and fresh-cut flowers.
Dining & Gastronomy
For a small ship, the Azamara Journey certainly has no shortage of choice when it comes to dining. With two specialty restaurants, a Chef's Table experience, a tapas bar, a café, and a frozen yogurt station, guests will be spoiled for choice when it comes to main mealtimes as well as snacks between meals. Meals can also be brought to your stateroom at no extra charge. At the main dining room, the Discoveries Restaurant, guests can look forward to a variety of international inspired, multi-course meals with plenty of soups, salads and appetizers to satisfy every taste. Vegetarian, vegan, kosher, and gluten-free options are also available.
Entertainment and Activities
The Azamara Journey has a low-key, relaxing onboard environment that lends itself to a restful vacation. During the day, most guests prefer quiet activities such as reading, knitting, and chatting with other passengers over a cup of coffee. Educational lectures, enrichment workshops, and rounds of BINGO are also popular. In the evenings, the cabaret club Feinstein's/54 Below is the place to be, featuring a constantly-changing regime of music, opera and theater performances.
The highlight of any Azamara cruise is the "AzAmazing" evening shore excursion. Guests will be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience immersing them in the culture of the destination region. Whether it's a folk festival in a village, a symphony in a concert hall, or a reenactment of a medieval sporting event, guests will be sure to be amazed at this cultural treat.
Azamara cruises feature a resort casual dress code. Passengers are asked to dress slightly more formal in the evenings, particularly for sit-down dining. Suits and dresses in the restaurants are welcome, but not required. There are no formal nights.
