OVERVIEW

       
 Azamara Journey is one of eight nearly identical ships built
for Renaissance Cruises.  Each ship was rather unimaginatively
given the name R followed by a number corresponding to its
place in the sequence in
which the ships were built.  After
Renaissance went out of business the fleet was dispersed amongst
a number of cruise lines.  R One is now the Columbus 2 of
Hapag L
loyd Cruises.  Oceania Cruises has R Two (Regatta);
and  R Five (Nautica).  R Three is Pacific Princess and R Four is
Ocean Princess of Princess Cruises. Azamara Journey was R Six
and fleetmate Azamara Quest was R  Seven.
 P&O Cruises'
Adonia was R Eight.

    Although the
R-class ships, as they are known, have, and
have had, numerous owners, for the most part, they have
retained their original atmosphere and style.  They are
indisputably elegant and lend themselves to sophisticated, up-
market cruising.

       Since the hardware is still very similar, the question
naturally arises, why choose one line over the others?
       
        "We have here a philosophy of destination immersion, "
explained Captain Jason Ikiadis, Master of Azamara Journey,
"We go to 170 ports in over 50 countries.  We like to stay later
and even overnight so you have a real chance to visit the places
that you are going to. In addition to that, onboard we have a
casual elegance."

       "From what I hear, it is the friendliness of the crew, the
flexibility and the follow-up that people really appreciate," adds
Hotel Director Heike Berdos.  Returning guests "say it feels like
homecoming."

       Azamara Journey competes in the luxury cruise segment.  A
selection of wines is included with lunch and dinner; specialty
coffees, teas, and soft drinks are also complimentary.  For guests
staying in certain suites, there is no cover charge for the specialty
restaurants and they have free access to the outdoor section of
the spa.

       Journey's itinerary takes her around the globe.  "We also try
and go to some places that are off the beaten track where the big
ships can't go," noted Captain Ikiadis. "It really doubles your
chances of savoring the country that you are visiting."      


   
The elegant lobby staircase is the ship's
centerpiece that announces the ship's
style.
 
The interfaces between guests and management are located in the
ship's central lobby including the
 Guest Relations Desk
(left)
, the Shore Excursions Desk (above) and the Future
Cruise
Sales and Club Desk (below).
Journey's art collection is generally non-obtrusive with some exquisite glass work.   The paintings are for the most
part contemporary and/or abstract.  There is also a collection of photographs dating from the mid-20th Century.

The decor of Journey's public rooms is
classical and understated.  It is
reminiscent of an upper class English
country house or a traditional American
country club.
