I thoroughly enjoyed sailing the Italian and French Riviera aboard Azamara Club Cruises' Journey. I loved the smaller size of the ship, only 697 passengers, very easy to navigate. The fact that the ship is smaller, you are able to get into many ports the larger ships can not get into.
This itinerary is great for people watchers, shoppers or those who just want to sit at sidewalk cafes and enjoy a cappuccino or a bottle of the local wines. The views along the Riviera are spectacular!
Our ports of call included Rome, Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi, Taormina Sicily, Florence (Livorno), Portovenere, Portofino, St Tropez and Monte Carlo/Monaco.
There are many inclusions on Azamara Club Cruises making it a great value. For instance, gratuities are included. Also included are wine (served with lunch and dinner), bottled water, soft drinks and specialty coffees. The food was excellent and service outstanding.
Journey also features two specialty restaurants, Spa and Wellness Center, a coffee café, a piano bar and a wine bar, live entertainment, daily enrichment programs like wine and champagne tasting. At Azamara Club Cruises, they say “You’ll Love Where We Take You" and boy did I ever!
