Azamara Quest emerges from Navantia with refreshed spaces, blue hull

The new 'Azamara blue' hull
Azamara Quest on Friday emerged from an eight-day drydock with refreshed public spaces and a new ‘Azamara blue’ hull. The tone was named for the cruise line by Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz.

Ship-wide renovations included new carpets, upholstery and a new color palette in public spaces, new mattresses and upgraded veranda furniture for suites and staterooms, a resurfaced pool and new sun loungers and pool towels.

The Casino Bar was expanded and enhanced with new furniture, and the Spa/fitness center was refreshed with a new steam room, showers and the latest Life Fitness cardio equipment.

On the culinary front, a new caviar and champagne bar was created within Aqualina, one of the ship’s two specialty dining venues, and a new Chef’s Table concept features three wine degustation menus—Italian, French and Californian. At Mosaic Café, passengers can now purchase Nespresso coffees (other specialty coffees continue to be included in the fare).

Enhancements were also made behind the scenes in the staff and crew areas.

Upon departing from Navantia Shipyard, Azamara Quest will sail a 13-night Madeira and Canary Islands voyage, followed by a four-night Spain and Northern Africa voyage on Nov. 28. The ship then embarks on a 16-night trans-Atlantic voyage to Rio De Janeiro for its South America season.
