Azamara Adds Quest

Azamara Cruises officially added Azamara Quest to its fleet on Monday, joining sister ship Azamara Journey. The 694-guest Quest set sail from Miami on the first of two special two-night cruises, which will be followed by a series of Caribbean and Panama Canal itineraries. Azamara Cruises, Royal Caribbean International's deluxe brand, was created in May 2007 to fill a space devoted to more intimate and exclusive onboard experiences, coupled with access to less-traveled ports. Identical to Journey, Quest will offer the Mediterranean-influenced, Aqualina, and steak and seafood specialty, Prime C. For causal dining, Quest has the new Mosaic Café, which offers a variety of foods such as pastries and tapas. Quest arrived in Miami on October 19 after a nearly $20-million makeover (the ship was prior property of Renaissance Cruises), including the conversion of 48 staterooms into suites.
