Combining all three of these is Azamara Club Cruises, one of the best kept secrets in cruising and our insider pick for the best cruise line you may not have heard of . . . at least not yet.
From true destination immersion to top-notch service with unique touches that make Azamara unlike any other cruise line, you’ll experience the world’s wonders in elegance and modern-style from your boutique hotel at sea. We know you’ll love Azamara as much as we do, so we’ve highlighted a few of the things that make Azamara Club Cruises absolutely amazing in order to get the secret out and help you plan your next voyage!
Azamara Club Cruises strongly believes travel is one of those things in life that shouldn’t be rushed, and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why Azamara is one of the only cruise lines dedicated to extended time in ports and more overnight stays that allow guests to fully experience the culture, cuisine, scenery, festivals, and people of every destination at all hours of the day.
When you stay longer, you experience more—especially on Azamara. Seeing destinations come alive after dark is something other cruise lines rarely do, but it’s standard for Azamara Club Cruises and makes experiencing authentic nightlife safe and easy. Their "Cruise Global, Nights Local" mantra allows you to explore places after-hours, be it at the theater, a local pub, a cultural performance, or another intriguing locale.
Azamara boasts some of the most in-depth, intimate, and immersive shore excursions in all of cruising by seamlessly integrating your on-land and at-sea adventures into one gorgeous journey. Whether day or night, every tour is crafted to maximize immersion in every port of call. With a maximum of 25 guests, you’ll enjoy a more personal connection with the destination and more individual interaction with local guides who are committed to bringing you a uniquely authentic perspective.
A hallmark of every Azamara sailing is their “AzAmazing Evenings℠”; private, locally inspired, unique events that deliver authentic travel moments bringing you closer to your destination, its culture and its people. Complimentary on most sailings 7 nights or longer, all guests receive an invitation to one of these very memorable experiences. They are truly special, connecting you with the real character of a place, which is what makes travel deeply satisfying.
If there is a destination you’ve always wanted to experience, chances are Azamara Club Cruises goes there. They seldom repeat ports, so you’ll always see something new and exciting on every itinerary. Besides just staying longer and leaving later, Azamara Club Cruises truly immerses you in every destination: famous places, hidden gem locales, and remote ports where larger ships just won’t fit, like in the heart of Marseille, Amalfi, and Crete.
The most authentic travel moments transpire when you feel completely immersed in a destination. Chasing that incredible feeling of “this is exactly where I’m meant to be” is why you love travel and it’s what you’ll find when you cruise with Azamara.
Guests becoming immersed in local culture is paramount for Azamara Club Cruises and is evident in their variety of thoughtfully curated land excursions. You’ll travel to private homes, farms, villas, markets and more to experience authentic local life as it unfolds by day and enjoy after-dinner tours that highlight the architecture, arts, and scenery best experienced after night falls. No matter what adventure you seek—culinary, historical, cultural, outdoor—Azamara sails the world with a focus on local life, genuine encounters, and the true spirit of some of the world’s most captivating locations.
Azamara Club Cruises has crafted an onboard experience more akin to a stay in the world’s most exclusive hotels than any typical cruise ship: a stylish, sophisticated “club-like” atmosphere onboard to come back to after a day (and night) exploring in port. Completely redesigned, comfortable and never crowded, Azamara is known for impeccable service, inclusive amenities, elegant accommodations, gourmet cuisine, luxurious spa services, exciting entertainment, and a variety of onboard and onshore activities so you can choose to sit back and relax, stay up and party, or get out and explore. Azamara Club Cruises is also a ‘foodie’ paradise! Fresh ingredients, meticulous preparation, local inspiration, and a variety of fine dining options make every journey a culinary adventure.
Azamara Club Cruises’ fleet of intimate, mid-sized ships is about to get bigger with the exciting addition of the new Azamara Pursuit, which will be hitting the ocean in 2018. Comparable in size, style, and comfort to the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, the Pursuit will bring guests the experience of an upscale, modern boutique hotel at sea and visit unique ports that larger ships are unable to reach.
The Azamara secret is definitely out! By combining sophisticated style onboard with authentic cultural experiences onshore designed to deepen your understanding and appreciation of our world, Azamara has become the difference between visiting a destination and truly experiencing it.
