Azamara Club Cruises


A boutique cruiseline of distinction. Azamara’s smaller ships reach unique destinations larger ships can’t. With longer and more overnight stays so you truly immerse yourself in the places travelled.

Azamara offers elegant accommodation, fine wines and dining with a host of complimentary amenities.

Unmatched Amenities
The unique offerings of Azamara are beyond compare: butler service is provided in every suite; shore excursions are designed to let guests become part of the fabric of life in each destination, instead of merely being an observer; the enrichment programs offer everything from culinary to photographic explorations; two specialty restaurants provide the finest cuisine at sea; live entertainment can be enjoyed nightly; and the level of personal service offered is unmatched.

Smaller Ships – Out of the Ordinary Destinations
Azamara Club Cruises consists of two intimate ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Each can carry 694 fortunate guests to discover the hidden corners of the world that larger cruise ships simply cannot reach. In addition to offering a more personalized experience, the ships have recently undergone a $17.5 million revitalization including new European bedding and soft goods, flat screen televisions, new veranda decking and furniture, and wireless internet service in all staterooms and public areas. Plus, 93% of staterooms offer ocean views and 68% have a private veranda.

Why sail away with Azamara?

Experience the Azamara Difference. They don’t simply skim the surface but give their guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in the destination. Yes, you’ll have ample time to sample the cuisine, the shopping, the museuwms, and the monuments, but with longer stays in ports and more overnights you’ll also have time to discover the hidden treasures that tourists seldom see.

Stroll down the Ponte Vecchio in Florence and witness the breathtaking sight of the bridge’s lights reflecting on the waters of the Arno below. Lovers of culture will be mesmerized by the traditional operas performed at the Mussorgsky Theater in Russia’s iconic St. Petersburg. Shimmering like a pearl in the moonlight, Bangkok truly comes alive at night with jazz clubs, trendy restaurants and shows ranging from the hedonistic to the spectacular.

The truth is, you don’t really know a place until you know it by night, and Azamara’s longer stays and more overnights, offer you a one of a kind experience at an unbelievable value – that’s the Azamara Difference! With Azamara, you’ll love where they take you…
