Azamara Quest Club Continent Suite Review
The Azamara Quest Club Continent Suite boasts a modern décor inspired by nature’s elements of water, sand, wood and stone. Tones of white, cream and charcoal are accented by dark honey colour timber and sparkling silver chrome highlights.
Position and layout
The Azamara Quest Club Continent Suites are located midship and aft on deck 8. They are generously proportioned rooms with 24.7 sq. m. / 266 sq. ft. of internal space and a double-sized veranda.
An extra wide, titled entry foyer with closet storage on one side and bathroom on the other leads to the main living space. The layout is akin to that of a hotel junior suite with bed, writing desk, lounge chairs and coffee table. It feels spacious and there is more than enough room for two guests to move around comfortably.
Chrome-trimmed, white cabinetry runs down one side of the suite. It features luggage space, deep storage draws (a very clever idea), concealed CD/DVD player and a writing desk. Above is a large wall mounted flat-screen TV which sits within an eye-catching pebbled frame.
A luxurious queen-sized bed is dressed with Egyptian cotton bed linen. It rests beneath a white leather bedhead that reaches all the way to the ceiling. The bedhead is inlayed with attractive geometric patterns. On each side a mood light and reading lamp is mounted on dark honey-coloured timber – another eye-catching design feature.
Next to the bed is a high backed, charcoal coloured armchair, together with a small timber and chrome coffee table and a smart, chrome-framed, leather seat.
The private veranda
Natural light floods the suite from floor to ceiling glass doors that lead on to a private veranda. The Azamara Quest Club Continent Suite veranda is a charming space complete with table and who chairs. At 5.6 sq. m. / 60 sq. ft. the veranda is almost twice as long as those of regular staterooms, but we note that it is no deeper. This means it can be a squeeze when moving around the outdoor table and chairs.
The white marble and granite bathroom is arguably the most successful aspect of the refurbishment. The dark honey-coloured timber continues here with shelving and vanity. A large, square designer basin and Hollywood-style mirror compliment the modern look.
The shower is large and has a glass door. It features wet-shelving recessed into granite surrounds as well as quality tap wear. The only fault we identifided was the odd location of the shower head. Rather than being overhead it sits on the wall delivering an awkward horizontal spray. Some Club Continent Suites have a tub/shower combination. These suites are available on request.
Hanging space for clothing in the Azamara Quest Club Continent Suite is limited. It consists of a single closet with 3-timber panelled doors (the same configuration as regular staterooms). Guests taking longer voyages with lots of clothing may find this hanging space insufficient.
