Just completed a 16 day cruise on subject Azamara Journey. I concur with your post regarding this up-scale market ship. Food and service was exceptional.
However as a single inside cabin travel I have a few comments regarding this ship.
1. Azamara does not know how to handle the single suppliment traveler. Seating for the "prefer to share" dinning room is slow and cumbersome. Dinner time frequently took 2 1/2 to 3 hours to complete with long delays between courses.
2. Showers in the inside cabins are the smallest of any cruise ship that I have sailed on. (I have cruised 63 times in the past 8 years)
3. Bed matress was old and sagged.
Given the above problems, I would still happly sail on Azamara again. These are just items that need attention and improvement.
