About Us

Azamara® is an upmarket cruise line and the leader in Destination Immersion®, with three mid-sized ships – Azamara Pursuit, Azamara Quest, and Azamara Journey – sailing to all seven continents of the world.
Founded in 2007 and re-launched as Azamara Club Cruises® in 2010, Azamara removed “Club Cruises” from its name in June 2019, following the debut of the largest selection of pre- and post- voyage land programs in the cruise industry. The destination-focused brand offers a total of 1,700+ land program offerings, which complement the brand’s immersive voyages and further enhances its commitment to bringing guests closer to the heart of a destination.
Through the brand’s Destination Immersion programming, curated itineraries bring the ships to exotic and marquee ports. Azamara’s commitment to creating immersive experiences for travelers to connect with local cultures, allows guests to travel deeper with longer stays, more overnights, and night touring. As part of in-depth immersion into a specific destination, an extensive 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.
With Azamara’s Country Intensive Voyages, guests get 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. Onboard, guests can experience a boutique hotel at sea with inclusive amenities such as gratuities, beverages, AzAmazing Evenings® – an exclusive, bespoke event designed specifically for Azamara guests to immerse themselves in their destination and more.
Azamara holds prestigious awards, further exemplifying the line’s commitment to Destination Immersion®, including 2019 USA Today Readers’ Choice for “Best Boutique Cruise Line” and 2018 Cruise Critic Editor’s Picks Awards for “Best Shore Excursions.” In 2019, Azamara will take guests to 316 ports in 78 countries, including 268 late nights and 150 overnights.
