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

Like its sister ship, Azamara Journey, Quest appeals to travelers seeking an intimate atmosphere. While the ship can carry nearly 700 guests, thanks to a low crew-to-passenger ratio (there are 408 crew members on board) the ship maintains a higher level of service than its midsize competitors. And for many reviewers, the ship's well-appointed staterooms, outfitted with amenities like flat-screen TVs, minibars and custom About Rose toiletries, put Quest a notch above other ships in the same size category. Guests staying in suites are granted even more privileges, like butler service, a complimentary bottle of vodka and Scotch whisky, and complimentary dining at specialty restaurants Aqualina and Prime C (travelers staying in other category rooms must pay an additional $25 cover charge). With four casual venues and the main dining room (a hit with recent guests for both the menu and the service), travelers can count on versatile culinary experiences. But the biggest draw might be the spa and fitness facilities, which previous passengers describe as modern and comfortable. While on board, guests can also enjoy seminars and lectures, wine tastings and culinary demonstrations, among other enrichment programs. The evening lineup is just as diverse. There's blackjack in Casino Luxe, nightly shows at the Cabaret Lounge and cocktails coupled with ocean views at the Looking Glass Lounge. In 2015, Quest will offer sailings around the globe, with scheduled itineraries spanning Europe, the Mediterranean, Australia, Asia and the Pacific.
