Intimate Luxury with Destination Immersion.
With Azamara Club Cruises the world is meant to be experienced, and not merely viewed from the deck. Thus, their “Destination Immersion” programme, meaning longer stays, more overnights, and night touring. More time in port means more time to enjoy exclusive tours, which take you behind the scenes of local destinations. Or “Nights and Cool Places”, which offer an after-dinner experience. That is in addition to the complimentary “AzAmazing Evenings” events, created specifically for Azamara guests to participate in a unique night of culture and, of course, fun.
A voyage with Azamara is like staying in a fine boutique hotel, only better. Sparkling accommodations, 24-hour room service, a choice of excellent restaurants and an international cellar of fine wines will raise your spirits. You’ll also enjoy many options for evening entertainment, first-rate spa services, and daily classes including fitness instruction. Included in your price will be an “AzAmazing Evenings” event (on most voyages), select standard spirits, international beers and wines, gratuities, bottled water, soft drinks, specialty coffees and teas, self-service laundry and shuttle service to and from port communities, where available.
Azamara ships are not too big so you’ll never feel lost. And they’re not too small, so you won’t run out of new things to do and new people to meet. With a capacity of 686 guests, Azamara’s two mid-sized ships are really just right. You’ll love the genial club-like atmosphere and the way the staff and crew get to know you. Azamara’s smaller ships also offer the big advantage of being able to sail to places larger cruise lines cannot. For instance, they sail to the doorstep of Bangkok, while other large cruise lines dock a few hours away. They sail to the city centre of Bordeaux, the heart of Seville, and within a short walk to Hong Kong’s buzzing nightlife and Shanghai’s famous Bund.
Every voyage includes a complimentary “AzAmazing Evenings” event. These authentic, exclusive and bespoke hosted evenings are a unique opportunity to enjoy the advantages of longer stays in port and experience a destination to its fullest. Whether it’s the ballet at Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg, a polo match and reception in Saint Tropez, or a gala affair at the Belfast Titanic Museum, each event reflects the beauty and culture of a specific destination. And each is a night you’ll never forget.
Azamara visits a variety of fascinating ports in the Mediterranean, The Black Sea, Northern and Western Europe, Asia, South America, the West Indies and North America. Nearly half of all Azamara port stops feature overnight or late night stays.
Whether you book a stateroom or a suite, you’ll love the polished style and stellar service in your own private retreat. Stateroom Amenities include Egyptian cotton bed linens with duvet, Terry bathrobes and slippers, 24-hour room service, “About Rose” toiletries—sophisticated luxury soaps and fine toiletries, Welcome fruit basket at embarkation, Fresh-cut flowers, Tote bag, Complimentary use of umbrella and binoculars, Complimentary shoe-shine service, Turndown treats, Daily news bulletin, Floor-to-ceiling glass doors in veranda staterooms. Your veranda is perfect for dining, reading, sipping a glass of wine before dinner, or gazing at the stars. In larger suites, verandas open into living spaces that are perfect for parties.
Entertainment and Activities
Discoveries Lounge. Located just outside Azamara’s main restaurant, this congenial bar is a favorite gathering place for pre- and post-dinner conversation.
Mosaic Café and Mosaic@Night. This centrally located coffee and tea bar is a favorite onboard hub, and chances are you’ll find yourself here frequently. Want to grab a quick bite before heading off the ship in the morning? Head by the Mosaic for a steaming latte and fresh baked baby quiches (very addictive). In the afternoon the Mosaic Café attracts friendly competitors for trivia and board games and tea-time sandwiches, sweets, and savory bites. And after dinner, Mosaic@Night is a great place to socialize while enjoying live music and a selection of fine liqueurs.
Looking Glass Lounge. Floor to ceiling views and Murano glass lighting set the mood for this elegant evening club featuring live music or DJs spinning favorite hits. Head to the dance floor, or settle in at the beautiful bar. (You’ll be impressed by the bartenders’ mixology skills.) Occasionally the Looking Glass features special local dance and musical troupe performances. This venue also plays host to culinary classes and other onboard demonstrations.
Cabaret Lounge. Enjoy live performances of professional full-stage musical revues, classical soloists, bands and other entertainment in a cabaret nightclub with a full bar and cozy tables. You could see as many as three distinctly different shows while onboard. And considering the cost of theater and entertainment tickets in Ireland, isn’t that nice?
Casino Luxe. The Casino will keep you entertained with blackjack, roulette, slot machines, and three-card poker games. Group and individual gaming lessons are offered at no charge—a great way to learn gaming strategy! And for sports fans, the Casino features a flat-screen TV and full bar.
