After five successive cruises on Azamara Journey we switched it up just a little bit by selecting a cruise in 2018 on its sister ship Azamara Quest. We made the choice of this cruise based on itinerary and time of year, but once we made the choice we were pleased with the prospect of seeing what differences if any there may be between the two virtually identical ships. In August of 2018 these two ships were joined by another near identical ship named Azamara Pursuit and the fourth near identical ship named Azamara Onward is set to start sailing in 2022. The ships are owned and operated by Azamara. At the time of our sailing Azamara was a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd but as of the beginning of 2021 it was sold to private equity firm Sycamore Partners.
Our cruise choice for 2018 was a Mediterranean cruise that sailed from Rome to Barcelona with a few ports of call that would be new to us even though we had cruised in the region four times previously. We did look at alternatives when planning a cruise vacation, but in the end our familiarity with Azamara, the itinerary and a schedule that suited us well made selecting this cruise on Azamara Quest an easy choice.
