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: Juneau | Taste of Alaska's Wild Harvest
Discover the foragers, fisherfolk, and farmers behind Alaska's cuisine. Guided by the harvest, this truly seasonal tour may either start on the dock, where you'll meet the captain of a commercial fishing boat and peer in on the lifestyle of an Alaskan fishing family. Tour the living quarters and learn about sustainable salmon harvesting, and select fresh salmon from the onboard ice cooler to take to our cooking class. Or you may first meet with a local kelp or oyster farmer, or foraging expert to learn about how the landscape shapes the natural ingredients that flavor southeast Alaska's regional fare.
We'll transfer to the kitchen at Jorgenson House, a gorgeous inn owned by a fourth-generation family of Juneauites. Here, we'll discover how to cook with the whole salmon, showcasing recipes that fully-utilize every part of the fish. We'll enjoy lunch on the deck with stunning mountain views, with seafood as well as locally harvest greens, berries, and more. We'll meet with an Alaskan native cultural ambassador to understand the importance of the local harvest on our plate.
Note: In case of inclement weather, we will forgo the fishing boat visit and instead have a presentation at Jorgenson House on harvesting local ingredients including kelp, oysters, devil's club buds, fiddlehead ferns, and other products, and prepare a recipe to take home. We'll also have a tasting of products made with Alaska kelp. The tour will then proceed with the salmon cooking class and lunch.
