Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On October - 21 - 2007

Azamara Quest The 694-passenger Azamara Quest was delivered to Azamara Cruises on Monday in Miami. The former R Seven from Renaissance Cruises then sold to Pullmantur Cruises where it sailed as Blue Moon, the vessel underwent a $20 million dollar renovation.
Work included the conversion of 48 staterooms into 32 suites, the opening of a lounge at the forward end of the ship to provide 180-degree views, the creation of a new Sunset Bar on the aft deck, along with new carpeting, furniture, bedding and linens.

The Azamara Quest offers a main dining room and two specialty restaurants: the Mediterranean-influenced Aqualina and Prime C for steaks and seafood. More casual dining is available in the Mosaic Café, open from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily, with pastries and savory dishes by day, and assorted hot and cold tapas at night.

The ship’s expanded AstralSpa provides an outdoor relaxation lounge and treatments in a new aesthetics suite including acupuncture, mirodermabrasion and facials. Some spa services will be available in passenger suites.

Azamara touts itself a cut above the ordinary cruise lines by offering butler service in all staterooms and shore excursions (they call them “shore immersions”) that are designed to let guests become part of the fabric of life in each destination, instead of merely being an observer. Additionally, Azamara’s enrichment programs offer everything from culinary to photographic explorations. Azamara is the new, deluxe cruise experience for discerning travelers who long to reach out-of-the-ordinary destinations and indulge in amenities and service unparalleled on the high seas.
