A few years ago multi-award winning luxury cruise line, Azamara Club Cruises took steps to evolve it’s destination immersion offerings, and enhance onboard experiences fleet wide. Both Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest underwent an extensive refurbishment project titled Azamara Remagined, which gave each ship a complete bow to stern overhaul. Nothing was untouched and upgrades were applied to staterooms, suites, and public areas.

The creative concept behind the reimagining was to bring the organic essence of destination immersion onboard using the four elements of nature. Earthy muted tones add a relaxing element whilst an enhanced outdoor pool grill brings the fire. Airy new outdoor venues and new tranquil spa suites complete the full circle.

Eager to know more about the revitalisation programme, we sent some of our team onboard so that they could report back on the newly upgraded Azamara Quest. Find out more about what they thought;

 

Azamara's Suites and Staterooms

 

Azamara Club Cruises have added two “Spa Suites” to the forward section on the upper deck next to the Spa. These allow direct access to the Spa and Gym with one “Night in Private Places” experience included per cruise. This means private use of the whirlpool and sunbeds on the viewing deck of the Spa, overlooking the bow with a butler who’ll cater to your every need. Those who would like to experience a “Night in a Private Place” can do so for around $60.

All staterooms have had an extensive makeover. We saw a refurbished Deck Four forward Oceanview room, which was very spacious even with a double bed, armchair, minibar, and all the usual features. All staterooms now feature a top of the range interactive TV, and bathrooms have been rebuilt with upgraded stone and porcelain surfaces.

 

Azamara's Inspiration Centre

 

The Inspiration Centre on Deck Four features a giant screen much like a big iPad. It has touch screen technology and tells you all about future Azamara Cruises itineraries all over the world, including ports of call, future cruise prices and so on. Touch anywhere on the map to to view videos, see beautiful photography and destination information.

 

Azamara's Living Room

 

What was the Looking Glass lounge at the top of the ship (forward), is now called the Living Room. Here you’ll find touch screen tables where you can send a digital postcard to relatives via email from the comfort of your couch. In fact, the WiFi has been improved ship-wide with a faster and more reliable connection. A small food station and coffee machine in the Living Room make it a convenient hangout in the mornings or late afternoons. The vibe is quirky and elegant with suspended birdcage chairs for fun.

Dining with Azamara Club Cruises

 

Main Dining is in the Discoveries Restaurant which now has additional seating. The grand Tiffany chandelier hangs from the ceiling and is apparently the most expensive feature on the ship. Both speciality dining restaurants feature the same cuisine but have been refurbished. 

The Pool Grill is now known as The Patio; a refined outdoor dining experience with a new menu and sophisticated ambiance. Occasionally you’ll also be able to enjoy live music or open air movies from across the pool as you dine.
