For our fifth cruise we returned for a third straight time to Azamara Journey for a voyage that would take us around the British Isles labelled as a "Castles, Distilleries & Pubs Cruise" starting in Edinburgh, Scotland on July 28, 2012 and finishing in Southampton, England on August 9, 2012.
We arrived in Edinburgh via London early in the afternoon of July 25 to see some of Edinburgh before the cruise and after the cruise we travelled to Lyme Regis for a few days on the beautiful Dorset coast followed by a final few vacation days in London.

For a third time in a row we sailed on Azamara Journey - one of three near identical ships owned and operated by Azamara.
It really has become so far our home on the seas. We first tried Azamara Journey in 2010 because we wanted to try a smaller ship after two cruises on larger vessels with Celebrity Cruises. We loved the experience on the smaller ship. It really did suit us better. When booking some of our subsequent cruises we had actually looked at some other cruise line options - but the combination of available itineraries and service that we knew and loved brought us back to booking again on Azamara Journey.
