Azamara Journey Overview

As the old saying goes, 'good things come in small packages', and this is certainly true of the Azamara Journey cruise ship. This elegant vessel is the perfect size to visit ports that are inaccessible by larger ships, such as Bombay and Bordeaux. Her sister ship is the Azamara Quest and she belongs to the Azamara Club Cruises fleet, a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Ltd.

The Azamara Journey specs
Weighing 30,277 tonnes, measuring 592 feet in length and spanning nine passenger decks, the Azamara Journey is in the smaller percentile of cruise ships. She can accommodate 686 guests (double occupancy) and has 408 crew. Her sailing speed is 18.5 knots.

Inside the Azamara Journey
When you step on board this beautiful vessel you can be forgiven for thinking you've travelled back in time. Reminiscent of an early 20th century Atlantic steamship, the interior decor is best described as understated elegance. Dark wooden finishings, soft lighting and soothing colours create a warm, welcoming atmosphere, where excellent service is a top priority.

Things to do on board the Azamara Journey
The Azamara Journey manages to pack a lot of entertainment punch for a small ship. You will find all of the usual cruise activities, such as trivia games, shuffleboard and duty-free shopping, but where this vessel really excels is in her enrichment programme. The port lectures are both entertaining and informative, and encourage passengers to really get to know the history and culture of each destination.

Continuing on this theme, the ship also hosts regular 'AzAmazing Evenings', a social event dedicated to creating a unique cultural experience for guests. The entertainment staff bring together musicians, delicious food and destination experts to recreate overseas experiences, such as 'watching the ballet in Russia' or 'enjoying live music in Tuscany'. These evenings really ignite your imagination!

Azamara Journey restaurants and bars
The Azamara Journey has a small yet spectacular selection of bars and restaurants. Guests can choose to eat at the main dining room, the buffet, the poolside grill, several casual cafes or one of two specialty eateries. The chefs are more than happy to accommodate special dietary needs, although they ask that passengers submit specific requests well in advance.

When it comes to enjoying a drink, all of the bars on board are worth a visit. In keeping with the Azamara Journey's style, the bars and lounges are elegant and tasteful, and offer a good selection of wines, beers, spirits and nonalcoholic beverages. Even better, most of the beverages are included in your ticket price, so you can sample new flavours without worrying about your wallet.

Azamara Journey itineraries and shore excursions
The Azamara Journey cruise ship is a truly global vessel, with sailings to a variety of ports from Europe and Scandinavia to Australia and the South Pacific. The shore excursions available will therefore depend on your chosen destination, but rest assured - there will be a range of exciting tours to choose from. Some examples include a private tour of the Parthenon in Athens, paddleboarding in Miami and a Jetboat Adventure in Sydney.

Cabins on board the Azamara Journey

Guests can choose from several accommodation options on board the Azamara Journey, ranging from an interior stateroom (158 square feet) to a Club World Owner suite (560 square feet with a 233 square foot balcony).

Standard staterooms (interior, ocean view and veranda) come equipped with basic amenities such as a safe, a mini-fridge and a phone, as well as some nice luxuries like bathrobes, slippers, fresh flowers and fine toiletries.
In addition to being much larger, the suites also come with butler service, complimentary access to the ship's two specialty restaurants, Aqualina and Prime C and more

Entertainment on board the Azamara Journey cruise ship

The Azamara Journey by day
Why not learn a new skill at sea? The Azamara Journey's enrichment programme features photography lessons, dance classes, computer workshops, culinary demonstrations and much, much more. These are often taught by the ship's crew - for example, the photographer will take the photography courses, while some of the performers may offer a select number of professional dancers.

Other popular daytime activities include trivia games, Shuffleboard, art auctions and port lectures. The Mosaic Cafe is the place to play cards and socialise with fellow cruisers, while the library offers an impressive range of titles. Alternatively, catch up with friends back home at the eConnections Internet Cafe.

Pools, spas and fitness facilities on board the Azamara Journey
The Azamara Journey's main pool area is relaxing and conveniently located just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Day Spa. Why not start your day with a dip in the pool, followed by a relaxing massage or body scrub? Alternatively, make yourself comfortable in the Thalassotherapy pool, or treat yourself to a new look at the hair salon.

Also located within the spa area is the Fitness Center, a small but well-equipped space with cardio machines and free weights. Some group fitness classes are available, but it's best to check the schedule every day or ask one of the instructors.

If you prefer to exercise outside, there is a jogging track on the top deck. Thirteen laps are equal to one nautical mile. Don't be surprised if you see friendly staff providing cold water and towels on the outdoor track - this is just one example of where the crew really go above and beyond to ensure you're comfortable.

Azamara Journey nightlife
By night most guests linger over a delicious meal at one of the ship's wonderful restaurants. After dinner, you will find most people enjoying a drink at the Martini Bar or watching a production show at the Cabaret Lounge. Depending on the schedule, the Cabaret Lounge also plays host to talented singers and live bands.

Another superb place to spend an evening is the Looking Glass lounge, an elegant bar with floor-to-ceiling windows and a telescope through which you can admire the dazzling night sea. The Looking Glass also serves some of the best cocktails to be found on board.

Approximately once every cruise there is a 'poolside party', if the weather allows. Best enjoyed on balmy sunny evenings, these parties include a delicious poolside buffet and a live band. As the sun goes down, most revellers flock to the dance floor. What's better after a good dance than a game of blackjack or roulette? The Casino Luxe has group and individual gaming facilities, including slot machines, and also a television which screens major sports matches. Instructors are also on hand to teach you the tricks of the trade, free of charge.

'AzAmazing Evenings'. These are culturally-themed performances designed to showcase a specific region and its heritage. Not only are they a fun night out, they are also incredibly entertaining and educational.

The Azamara Journey for families
Due to its size, the Azamara Journey cruise ship does not cater very well for families. There are no designated children's areas, organised activities or babysitting services. That said, children are permitted as long as they are at least six months old for short sailings, and at least 12 months old for transatlantic, transpacific and selected South Pacific cruises. If you are happy to make your own fun, and your children don't mind being one of few on board, then you'll still enjoy some quality family time at sea.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
