About Azamara Quest
The Azamara Quest was first built in 2000 for the cruise line Renaissance Cruises, where she was given the inventive name of R Seven, being the seventh ship in that fleet.
When that cruise line collapsed, she was chartered to a German cruise line as the Delphin Renaissance, before being sold to Pullmantur Cruises and being renamed Blue Moon in 2006.
A year later, she was transferred to the new Azamara Cruises brand, also owned by the Royal Caribbean Group at the time, and she was rebranded Azamara Quest. Along with her sister ship Azamara Journey (the former R Six), she was one of the mainstays of this brand until 2018 when a third ship finally joined the fleet.
In 2021, the Azamara brand was sold by Royal Caribbean Group to a private equity firm Sycamore Partners. The cruise line continues to operate to the same standards despite the change in owner.
The ship has undergone multiple refurbishments, the main ones in 2012 and in 2018. She is registered in Malta, and has a passenger capacity of 686.

If you have booked a cruise already and want to check out the location of your stateroom or suite, use the Azamara Quest deck plan on the cruise line’s website.
Club Interior Stateroom
The Club Interior Staterooms on Azamara Quest are really comfortable and well-appointed. You’ll have two twin beds that can be converted to a Queen size bed if you prefer, as well as a mini bar, a 40” TV (wall-mounted to save space) and there’s still room for a small sofa and a writing desk.
Guests in this level of stateroom also enjoy luxurious bed linens, bathrobes and slippers, and fresh flowers in their room. There’s 24-hour room service available, along with a shoe-shine service when you want to look your best for any formal nights on-board.
Club Oceanview Stateroom
Club Oceanview Staterooms on Azamara Quest are actually the smallest on the ship, but they’re still big enough to be comfortable, and you get a good-sized picture window that allows for plenty of natural light to fill the room.
You get every amenity that’s included in an Interior Stateroom too, and some Oceanview Staterooms also have a sofa bed, making them a good choice for families sailing on the ship.
Category 08 staterooms have an obstructed view. They aren’t given a separate classification by the cruise line, but they are priced differently and so if you are more concerned with natural light than the actual view, these are a good value choice.
Club Balcony Stateroom
The Club Balcony Staterooms are a great choice if you want to enjoy a relaxing view. The actual staterooms are bigger than the Inside and Oceanview staterooms too, so you’ve more space to relax – meaning there’s now a dedicated sitting area with the TV. You also get a refrigerator with your mini bar, so you can cool your own snacks and drinks too.
The balcony is a decent size, with enough room for two chairs and a table. Overall these are a great choice if you want to be able to soak up the view of your destination, but will still spend much of your time exploring the ship.
Club Balcony Plus Stateroom
Choosing a Club Balcony Plus Stateroom unlocks a lot of extra features. The rooms are identical in size and layout to the Club Balcony Staterooms, but you get a lot of extra perks that you can enjoy during your cruise, including:
- Either 120 minutes of complimentary internet, or $130 towards a full voyage unlimited internet package
- A free bag of laundry every 7 days
- One complimentary speciality dining restaurant every 7 days
- Priority embarkation and debarkation
- Complimentary spirits in your room
- Complimentary AzAmazing Evenings on most voyages
- Various spirits, beers and wines included across the ship
- All gratuities paid for
- Bottled water, soft drinks, coffees and teas
- Transfers to and from port communities
- Concierge service for help making reservations
Club Continent Suite
The smallest of the suites on the Azamara Quest, the Club Continent is still a spacious room with plenty of space to relax and unwind and a 50% larger balcony (compared to Club Balcony staterooms) for a touch of added luxury.
You don’t get all of the benefits of a Club Balcony Plus stateroom with the Club Continent Suite, but you do get:
- A bigger TV (55”)
- 240 minutes of complimentary internet, or 50% off an unlimited internet package
- One free bag of laundry every 7 days
- Complimentary speciality dining
Club Spa Suite
The Club Spa Suite is a significant upgrade over the Club Continent Suite both in terms of size and amenities. As well as easy access to the ship’s spa, you also get spa music played in your room (if you want it – you can turn it off). You also get your own glass-enclosed bathtub and a separate rain shower.
As well as all the benefits of the Club Continent Suite, you get a free unlimited internet package, fresh healthy snacks delivered each day, and $300 onboard credit to spend as you see fit. These rooms really are luxurious, and the extra perks just make for a special voyage.
Club Ocean Suite
In terms of in-suite amenities, the Club Ocean Suites on Azamara Quest are very similar to those of the Club Spa Suites. The upgrade is more in the size and layout of the room. The actual stateroom area is larger and has fully separate bedroom and sitting areas.
Meanwhile, the balcony is huge – with enough space for a four-seater table and loungers. If you want a room where you can really unwind, or even have guests over for a cocktail evening, then this is a fantastic choice.
Club World Owner’s Suite
The Club World Owner’s Suite is the largest suite on the Azamara Quest, and the perfect location to host friends for a drink before a meal or a theatre show. The stateroom itself is huge, with separate living and sitting areas and a beautiful marble bathroom.
Meanwhile, the balcony is larger than many of the actual staterooms on the rest of the ship, giving you ample space to unwind on a warm summer evening. You get all the same perks as the other suite categories too, including the $300 credit to spend on board.
Azamara Quest Itineraries
In November 2023, Azamara Quest crossed the Atlantic for a Caribbean itinerary before heading south, where she will offer various sailings around South America until March 2024.
She’ll then cross the Atlantic once again to offer cruises around the Mediterranean, before sailing for South Africa for the winter 2024/25 season.
This shows you how an Azamara ship like Azamara Quest doesn’t just spend its time repeating the same itineraries. Booking an Azamara cruise allows you to explore amazing parts of the world at different times, perfect if you love the thrill of new cultures and experiences.
Azamara Quest Deals
Despite being a premium cruise line, Azamara Quest cruises aren’t anywhere near as expensive as some of the other luxury options, and there are some great deals to be had, especially if you’re flexible on destination and dates.
I’d recommend booking with Panache Cruises – they can tailor your Azamara Quest cruise so that it’s perfect for you, and they’ll get you the best Azamara cruise deals too.
I’ve worked with the team behind Panache for many years and I know how much they care about every passenger and itinerary, so they’ll definitely be able to help make your Azamara Quest cruise something special.
