Like her sister ship, the Azamara Quest is a mid-sized beauty with a deck plan well-suited to the needs of modern voyagers. In addition to going to the most celebrated destinations on Earth, youll also go to less-traveled ports, enjoy scenic rivers and waterways that are off-limits to big cruise lines, and sail to the doorstep of great cities like Seville, Hong Kong, and Bordeaux.
You'll never feel crowded in the comfortable social spaces of her bars, restaurants, and lounges. Youll love the genial club-like atmosphere and the way the attentive staff and crew get to know you. And youll feel the same friendliness with your fellow voyagers.
Staterooms feature modern amenities, furnishings, and European linens. And one of the greatest features of this ship is the large number of staterooms with verandas. There's nothing better than opening your door to the fresh sea air and views.
Azamara's friendly ships are an altogether wonderful place to call your home away from home!

Exclusive Shore Event: Sitka | Land, Sea, and Sky
Located on gorgeous Baranof Island, our port of Sitka is the gateway to coastal Alaska's indigenous culture and beautiful wildlife. We'll start at the Sitka Sound Science Center, where we'll have the opportunity to feel sea creatures in the "touch tanks," from starfish to spiky urchins. Other displays include a deep-water fish aquarium, and a fascinating orca skeleton.
We'll transfer to the Alaska Raptor Center, which rehabilitates 100 to 200 injured bald eagles and other birds every year. While many of the birds can be released into the wild, some are too gravely injured, and remain at the center. Trained staff will introduce us to bald and golden eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls, and we'll discuss conservation and care for these special birds.
We'll go on to Naa Kahidi Hall for a beautiful dance and storytelling performance by Tlingit dancers, and then transfer to a delicious local seafood lunch at the Channel Club. Our final stop of the day will be Fortress of the Bears, an inspiring facility dedicated to caring for orphaned bear cubs. There are currently seven adult bears at the center, who we can observe from a raised platform.
