Stateroom 6009, an airy and spacious balcony stateroom on Deck 6. We had originally booked an ocean view cabin but were offered an upgrade at a reasonable price.

Sitting area in our stateroom, showing the floor-to- ceiling sliding balcony doors and the table and chairs outside. Unfortunately, the northern Pacific weather was not the greatest for sitting outside!
The pool deck showing the jogging track around the outside on the deck above. The pool deck also led to the Patio Grill, where we sometimes enjoyed a drink and a casual meal such as nachos or a burger.
The Den, on deck 5. This was where the quizzes were held each afternoon, or it was a pleasant place just to relax, have a drink and chat to our fellow passengers. During the evening a pianist and singer would perform.
The Discoveries Restaurant on deck 5. This was the main dining room and we ate some scrumptious meals here, with excellent service.
The opulent main staircase on the Azamara Quest. All the Azamara ships are decorated to the highest standards with deep carpets, fine artwork on the walls and comfortable furniture.
