Like her sister ship, the sturdy Azamara Quest is a mid-sized beauty with a deck plan well-suited to the needs of modern voyagers. You’ll never feel crowded in the comfortable social spaces of our bars, restaurants, lounges, Casino and Cabaret. Nor will you feel like a sardine jammed in around the pool, where our attentive staff is always ready to offer a complimentary bottled water, soft drink or fresh towel. Staterooms feature modern amenities, furnishings, and European linens. And one of the greatest features of this ship is the large number of staterooms with verandas. There’s nothing better than opening your door to the fresh sea air and views. Azamara’s friendly ships are an altogether wonderful place to call your home away from home!

Rome has something special to offer to all visitors, no matter their interests and tastes. Whether you daydream about fighting with gladiators in the Coliseum, debating with togaed senators in the Forum, tossing a coin in a fabled fountain, or being awestruck by the magnificence of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s masterpieces, Rome seems to live up to its sobriquet as the Eternal City.
There’s a reason they named one of the most stunning coastlines in the world after this town: “La Vita e Bella” in Amalfi! It’s also one of the largest towns in the region, so take some time to explore it. Rub shoulders with the Italian elite as you walk the pedestrian streets, ducking into shops and galleries. Drop into a bar and order the drink the region is best known for: limoncello. Make sure when you get it, that its been chilled. Limoncello, like revenge, is best served cold.
Head to the hilltop town of Taormina, one of the most beautiful places in all of Sicily. Stroll down the Corso Umberto for good shopping and people watching, and don’t even think about leaving before visiting the Teatro Greco. The Roman arena is a piece of art in and of itself, but it’s the sweeping views that are the star attraction.
The Lilliputian capital of Malta, Valletta is one of the most concentrated UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world. But despite its small size (less than half a square mile!), we think you’ll be wishing you had more time to see everything the city has to offer.
In a desirable location on the stunning Costa Smeralda, Olbia has been inhabited since the 8th century BC, but a recent archaeological discovery of 24 shipwrecks—two of them from the age of Nero—has landed it in the spotlight.
History buffs aren’t the only ones who will find plenty to see and do in Ajaccio. Art lovers will want to head to the Palais Fesch Musée de Beaux Arts to see the largest collection of Italian Renaissance Paintings in France (outside of the Louvre, of course). And foodies should check out the main market on Boulevard du Roi Jerome for myrtle and plum liqueurs, melt-in-your-mouth beignets (sugared donuts), and brocciu, a type of pungent cheese.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Monte-Carlo is a place with a reputation that’s far bigger than its mere 0.76 square miles. It’s the kind of place where professional athletes, royals, socialites, and Bond villains (or the actors who play them) rub elbows while searching for elusive lady luck. Come prepared to be amazed by the opulence, by the breathtaking beautiful surroundings, and for some of the finest people watching this side of the Atlantic.
Dynamic Barcelona is all about architecture, from the magnificent medieval buildings of the Gothic Quarter to the Modernist movement typified by the work of Antoni Gaudi. Though his materials were stone and metal, his forms were organic, awash in curves, swirls, and colors. His masterpiece is the amazing Church of the Sagrada Familia, colossal and as yet unfinished, though construction began in 1882.
