The South American cruise I took on Azamara was a great cruise and it is the perfect size ship for my wife and me. It is not worth double the price that Premium cruise lines are charging. Perhaps 125% to 150% at the most.
The food was good - excellent but not consistently excellent. Service was very good, and that was to be expected.
I do have to qualify this in that we sailed only seven months after the line was in operation and there were some major kinks that were just being ironed out.
