The boutique ships Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest have each undergone a major renovation to transform and modernize their suites and staterooms. The redesign, which includes a completely remodeled spa, as well as technological enhancements such as high speed WiFi and in-room digital personal assistants, takes its inspiration straight from the destinations the ships visit.
Delivering unique destination experiences is a key theme for Azamara Club Cruises, and with ships small enough to visit ports where larger vessels won’t fit, guests can access the heart of cities such as Marseille, Crete and Bangkok. Getting the most out of what these destinations have to offer is where Azamara excels, and its program includes longer stays in port until 8 p.m. or later, more overnight stays and a range of night tours.
AzAmazing EveningsSM takes the concept further, offering groups an opportunity to experience the best of local culture with a series of private, bespoke evening events. Possibilities include a hillside evening in Tuscany with a performance by three tenors, a Beatles-themed evening inside a stunning Anglican Church in Liverpool where the Fab Four grew up, or getting the red carpet treatment at a performance by the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra in St. Petersburg. A complimentary AzAmazing EveningsSM event is included on all itineraries that are seven nights or longer.
Azamara also offers a night touring program, which lets groups experience a curated selection of after-dinner tours that showcase the architecture, arts and scenery best appreciated after dark. From guided walks around illuminated landmarks, to after-hours museum visits and live performances, the night tours offer a glimpse of another side of the ports that daytime excursions miss. Azamara’s Insider Access land excursions offers another opportunity for hyperlocal experiences; groups visit private homes, farms and villas for a real behind-the-scenes destination experience.
