Checked out of the hotel and a taxi to the mariner are to join Azamara Quest – taxi cost was $12 cheaper than our arrival taxi, due to not being in the rush hour.
Check-in went smoothly and we were aboard the ship around 11.40 am even though boarding was not supposed to be until Noon.
Our cabins would not be available until 1.30 pm, so we were invited to have lunch. On boarding we were given a glass of champagne, which was cold and very acceptable.
The self serve dining room, which is called Windows, but to make sure that a high degree of hygiene is maintained all we did was point to the food that we wanted and it was served to us by the staff. Other waiters came round with wine of the day, water, beer and soft drinks.

First stop after lunch was the library. They have a very good selection of books.
With a very peaceful ambiance.

Another dinning area with bar.
and another I don’t think we will starve to death . . .
or we could just relax.
Small bar area just before the main dining area.

Very easy to walk down from deck to deck because the Azamara Quest is about a quarter of the size of the Diamond Princess.
