About Us

Founded in 2007 and then re-launched as Azamara Club Cruises® in 2010, Azamara is a boutique upmarket cruise line operating three 690 passenger ships, the Azamara Journey, the Azamara Quest and soon to join the family, the Azamara Pursuit. The company serves an up-market segment of international travelers, empty nesters with an explorer mindset that are motivated by enriching their life experiences.
 
Azamara Club Cruises pioneered Longer Stays and More Overnights. Now with three ships, the focus on these extended stays and authentic local experiences has evolved even further. “Explore Further” is the philosophy behind every Azamara Club Cruises voyage, it’s what connects people to people; people with cultures; people with themselves, by enabling them to look at life with a new perspective. Explore Further supports the addition of more than 900 new tours that are focused on the intimate experiences craved by the well-versed traveler. With overnight stays and visits to smaller, less-traveled ports, Azamara welcomes guests to step on land as an insider, and to travel deeper, beyond the initial layers of a city. 
 
Capitalizing on longer stays in port, more overnights and night touring, the ship’s smaller size allows for visits to ports larger ships are unable to venture to. In 2018, Azamara will take passengers to more than 260 ports, in 80 countries, including 208 late night stays and 130 overnights. Azamara’s commitment to Destination Immersion coupled with exceptional onboard service offers a unique cruise vacation for those who love travel.
 
Our immersive itineraries offer guests the opportunity to visit the destinations at night when many destinations come alive.  Over 250 overnight and late night stays (8 pm or later) in port are featured every year, which makes roughly 50% of all Azamara port calls offer a nighttime experience in the destination.  Through the brand’s Destination Immersion programming, curated itineraries bring the ships to exotic and marquee ports.  An expanded palette of World Events and Themed Voyages are offered, including Monaco Grand Prix, the World Cup, British Open, the Venice Redentore Festival, as well as New Years in Rio, and more to come.  Azamara’s Country Intensive Voyages allow guests to travel deeper and experience more of a given country, as the majority of the destinations are concentrated in one country such as Japan, Italy, Spain, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, Greece, Croatia and more.
