Azamara Quest

Cruise ship Azamara Quest, IMO 9210218, port of Livorno
The 181-meter “Azamara Quest” was built in 2000 by the Chantiers de l'Atlantique in St. Nazaire, France. She was the seventh ship in a series of eight identical cruise ships built for Renaissance Cruises and, in an amazing flight of fantasy, she was named “R Seven”. She then became “Delphin Renaissance” and “Blue Moon”, before settling for the actual name.

Beautiful name. Beautiful ship too. :)

They keep building them bigger and bigger. I find myself wondering at what point is safety being set aside for going over the top.

It is interesting to see the previous comments about how big this cruise ship is. I have only been on river cruises, with 140 - 225 passengers, and one converted ferry with about 300 passengers. When I see the enormous ships, I get turned off. I would not want to be on a ship with 2-3,000 other people. But when I looked at this ship, my reaction was "this one doesn't seem so bad."

Beautiful vessel.

Have never been on a cruise, and I wonder if I would like it?

I agree with Jack and William. Except that unlike Jack, this one seems as bad as the other ones...

The size of this ship only makes me wonder how much is riding on those hawsers tying it to the dock. :-)

Amazing and beautiful VP.

Floating cities are amazing but I would never spent some time in one of those. My concept of travelling is rather different, as far away from the crowds as possible. :-)

I wonder who dreams up these names and how the company decides on one.
