Comfortably installed in my balcony cabin, I took time to tour the ship and inspect other cabin types.By far my favorite cabin category are the two Spa cabins on deck 9 forward (pictured above). Since there are just two, I recommend booking early to snap one. These are closely followed by the club continent suites… Continue reading London calling – Azamara Pursuit-life aboard

It is entirely true though, there really is no substitute to walking through… Continue reading London calling – the miles pile up
