If you like a boutique-style hotel and experiencing a destination like a local, you’ll love Azamara Club Cruises. This award-winning line is all about authentic destination experiences at port and a friendly, comfortable feeling on board. Learn more about the Azamara difference below!

Longer Stays

For the traveler who likes the idea of a cruise but doesn’t want to be herded on and off a ship to spend only a few hours in a destination, we have one suggestion: Azamara. Their ships stay in port longer – often until at least 8PM or overnight – so you can experience the destination by day and by night.

Immersive Experiences

Since you’re getting to stay in port longer, you have more time to immerse yourself in the destination. Azamara’s smaller vessels can go to smaller ports that the big ships simply cannot reach. Some itineraries even focus on just one country, and you can experience its culture, cuisine, and history in several different ports. And we can’t forget the AzAmazing Evenings! These complimentary exclusive experiences are on nearly every itinerary and highlight the best of the local culture and cuisine.

Size of Ship

With only 690 passengers, these ships aren’t too big or too small (Goldilocks would be pleased!). You will be able to meet new people without feeling like you’re lost in a sea of thousands of strangers.

Relax and mingle with fellow passengers in the updated public space.

Unique Itineraries

With only two ships, Azamara rarely repeats ports (let alone itineraries) so you can pair back-to-back voyages together and experience even more. And with complimentary self-service laundry, there’s no need to stress about running out of clothes!


As soon as you board an Azamara ship, you feel at home thanks to the warm, welcoming staff. The crew is eager to get to know each guest’s name and preferences to make the journey even more enjoyable.

Updated Ships

In 2016, both the Journey and the Quest underwent extensive refurbishments. Gone are the days of dark, dated interiors. They now feature a fresh, contemporary feel and enhanced technology.

Dining Options

By dining options, we don’t just mean that you have a multiple restaurant from which to choose. We mean you have the option to choose when you eat, too! Forget having to decide between the early-bird special or waiting until 9PM to dine – Azamara’s four restaurants all feature open seating. So whether you want fresh options at Discover, contemporary Italian at Acqualina, a steak at Prime C, or relaxed dining at Windows Café, the choice is up to you!
