In September 2013, Sherry sailed on the Azamara Quest round trip from Rome. The ports of call were; Elba, Corsica, Sardinia, Amalfi, Capri, and Sorrento. The Azamara Quest was a wonderful small ship which allowed you to reach many ports that you wouldn’t be able to if you were sailing on a large ship. The Quest held only 694 passengers, which was wonderful!
We were in a Club Oceanview stateroom and the room was comfortable with plenty of storage area for your wardrobes. I would highly recommend a Club Veranda Stateroom or a Club Continent Suite - well worth the upgrade! This is a perfect ship for clients who are seasoned travelers that don’t want the mega ships and would like new and exciting itineraries. The average age on our ship I would say was 55-70 years, although we did see a few younger guests.
We stayed in Rome prior to the cruise at the Hotel Massimo D’Azeglio. The location was wonderful, only a block from Termini Station. You could walk to many restaurants from this hotel as well as sights. They offered a very nice continental breakfast in the morning. We found it was easy to walk in Rome and pretty easy to use their subway system. We booked an excursion to Anzio from Rome. This was approximately an hour train ride from Rome (Termini) to Anzio. We toured the battlefields of Anzio, Anzio Beaches, The Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial. I thoroughly enjoyed sailing with Azamara and would sail with them again!
