Near-luxury indulgence on intimate, mid-sized vessels
Azamara Cruises. Azamara is the new, deluxe cruise line managed by Celebrity Cruises, for discerning travelers who long to reach out-of-the-ordinary destinations and enjoy indulgent amenities and service on the high seas. Azamara's intimate ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, each can carry 694 fortunate guests. Because they are smaller and sleeker than larger cruise ships, they can sail to ports that others simply cannot reach. In a prior life these vessels were two of now-defunct Renaissance Cruises' universally acclaimed R-Class ships.
Highlights. All staterooms feature European bedding and soft goods and flat screen televisions, and wireless internet service in all staterooms and public areas. Butler service is provided in every stateroom; shore excursions ( called shore immersions), are designed to let guests become part of the fabric of life in each destination, instead of merely being an observer; 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 service offered is unmatched. Being mid-sized, the ships offer pretty much everything you'd expect from a large ship, except scaled down, like a small casino and small cabaret lounge.
Who Loves Azamara? A great choice for travelers looking for an upscale, near-luxury experience, on a more intimate vessel than the mega ships. People looking for the opportunity for a rowdy late-night party or poolside belly-flop contests will likely be happier elsewhere!
Locations. Azamara sails to Europe, Asia, South America and Antarctica, Africa, the Caribbean, and Panama Canal.
Pricing. An Azamara cruise starts at about $220 per day per person, including port charges, but excluding airfare.
