ULTRA LUXURY CRUISING with Azamara Club

Azamara Club Cruises considers its ships as floating boutique hotels with a Country ’Club’ atmosphere.  They are small vessels by modern standards carrying only 700 guests.

Compared with mainstream cruise lines Azamara Club offers a high-end product but stops short of the standards offered by the other ultra luxury cruise lines.

Admittedly their stateroom and bathroom sizes are small compared with other ultra-luxury cruise lines. However their public spaces are very attractive and the ships have undergone multimillion upgrades in recent years which has transformed and updated their public rooms and staterooms.

Three Smaller Ships carrying only 694 guests

The original fleet consisted of two ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, and a further vessel Azamara Pursuit (formerly P&O Cruises Adonia) is being added to the fleet in 2018. All are of a similar build carrying 694 guests and only 593ft in length, so they can enter ports that others cannot reach.

 

Guests are well looked after

Lecturers onboard share their knowledge before reaching each destination. There is informal dining, with open seating and no formal dress code. They offer a choice of two speciality restaurants: Aqualine, inspired by the coastal cuisines of the Mediterranean and North Africa, or Prime C, which offers tender cuts of premium beef and fine seafood.

 

Imaginative Excursions

The line prides itself in its destination immersion spending longer in each port with at least one overnight port stay, which gives its guests time to explore and enjoy destination fully if they wish. Evening excursions called ‘AzAmazing Evenings’ gives its cruisers exclusive access to local attractions or performances in a way they would never get on their own.

 

All Inclusive Experience

Azamara Club offer guests excellent value with many extras included.

Drinks are included – speciality coffee and teas, non-alcoholic drinks, select standard spirits and beers, house wines (a selection of one red and one white that changes daily) by the glass. Other items included in the fare include:

  • Housekeeping, dining and bar gratuities
  • Shuttle service in port where offered
  • Self-service laundry
  • Destination-influenced entertainment and enrichment programmes
  • Speciality dining complimentary for Suite guests
  • Butler service for Club Suite Guests
  • Concierge service
  • One complimentary ‘AzAmazing Evening’ port excursion per person
