How it Ranks: Azamara Journey ranks #1 out of 2 Azamara Club Cruises Cruise Ships based on an analysis of expert and user ratings, as well as health ratings.

The 694-passenger Azamara Journey impresses guests with its superb amenities, outstanding service and spacious cabins. Past cruisers rave about the comfortable accommodations, appointed with complimentary welcome fruit baskets, Egyptian cotton linens and flat-screen TVs. Seafarers looking to stay in the lap of luxury can spring for a suite, which affords extra extravagances like butler service, in-suite dining and complimentary dining at specialty venues (guests who don't stay in a suite must pay an additional $25 to eat at specialty restaurants). Thanks to a 2013 renovation, the Azamara Journey boasts a caviar and champagne bar in the Aqualina restaurant, a new chef's table and new sunloungers. The ship also offers a complimentary culture immersion program, known as AzAmazing Evenings, as well as an array of dining choices — including Mediterranean fare at Aqualina, a specialty restaurant, and sizzling steak entrees at Prime C, a chic steakhouse. Overall, most cruisers say the Azamara Journey delivers a quality cruise experience with a sophisticated ambiance and they praise the crew's attention to detail. The Azamara Journey sails around the globe, with 2014 itineraries covering the West Indies, the Mediterranean, South America, Europe, Asia and the Pacific.
