Brand Essence Facts

  • Two small and intimate ‘boutique hotel’ style ships. For an onboard experience that’s upmarket, yet relaxed – and never stuffy
  • We sail to 60 countries and explore 187 ports of call throughout Europe, the Mediterranean, Asia, South America and West Indies.
  • Off-the-beaten-track destinations. Our ships are designed to navigate to the heart of small, remote ports of call. Giving you the chance to see life at its most authentic, far away from the crowds.
  • More overnight stays and late night departures at over 50% of our ports of call. Because some of the most memorable travel experiences happen only at night.
  • Richer cultural experiences. An onboard “excursion expert” helps guests select shore excursions based on personal interests. They also serve as knowledgeable destination guides, offering a deep insight into the culture and history at each port.
  • Unique voyages to exciting events and celebrations. For example:
    • Monaco Grand Prix
    • Rio Carnival
    • Holy Week in Seville
  • Our Land Discoveries will help you experience every destination from more interesting perspective. Live the destination like a local
  • Attentive, yet never intrusive service from a friendly international crew. With a welcoming attitude so warm and natural, that guests feel right at home.
  • Inclusive amenities on every voyage that others charge extra for, but we regard as essential:
  • all gratuities for housekeeping, dining and bar staff
  • bottled water, soft drinks, speciality coffees and teas
  • select spirits, beers and wines at all ship bars
  • boutique wines during lunch and dinner
  • complimentary English butler service plus speciality dining for suite guests
  • self-service laundry
  • free shuttle service to and from ports (where available)

Top Tips

Few cruise lines talk about Destination Immersion because they’re never in port long enough to deliver it – we are. A  key distinction:

  • Azamara arrive earlier, stay later, do night tours, and often spend a night or two in the world’s greatest destinations.
  • But it’s not just more time. It’s more time without the crowds, because the big cruise ships leave earlier, or we sail to places they can’t reach.
  • On Azamara they can enjoy the nightlife ashore – dinner, evening entertainment, summer festivals, music, theatre, nightclubs, night tours and
  • more.
  • AzAmazing Evenings℠ take our guests to ancient castles and chateaux, private gardens, exclusive museum events and more.
  • They’ll see and taste the best of local culture—dining, ballet, music, and traditional sports like jousting and polo – in a way few others do.
  • Share the experience of Azamara’s club-like atmosphere, and the unique camaraderie between guests, staff and crew.
  • A cruise is an entire 10-day or 2-week experience for you. Azamara’s international staff and crew add remarkable depth to this
  • experience:
  • Representing more than 60 different countries, they share great insider’s knowledge of different ports and cultures.
  • Our officers and crew often join guests at meals, on the deck, for impromptu astronomy sessions, and even for onshore excursions.

Azamara has just two small ships, but has won the HIGHEST accolades for service, on board experience and itineraries from Cruise Critic, Conde Nast.
