Azamara Cruises

Azamara is the new, deluxe cruise experience for discerning travelers who long to reach out-of-the-ordinary destinations and indulge in amenities and service unparalleled on the high seas.


The unique offerings of Azamara are beyond compare: butler service is provided in every stateroom; our shore excursions (we prefer to call them shore immersions), are designed to let guests become part of the fabric of life in each destination, instead of merely being an observer; our enrichment programs offer everything from culinary to photographic explorations; our two specialty restaurants provide the finest cuisine at sea; live entertainment can be enjoyed nightly; and the level of service offered is unmatched.

Azamara Cruises consists of two intimate ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Each can carry 710 fortunate guests and because they are smaller and sleeker than larger cruise ships, they can sail to ports that others simply cannot reach.

In addition to offering a more personalized experience, our ships have recently undergone a $17.5 million revitalization with new European bedding and soft goods, flat screen televisions, new veranda decking and furniture, and wireless internet service in all staterooms and public areas. Plus, 93% of our staterooms offer ocean views and 68% have a private veranda

Azamara Journey Spa & Fitness You'll find an ample two-deck sunning area and plenty of comfortable, well-padded lounges on Azamara Journey, both around the pool and twin heated spas, and on the deck above (which also holds the jogging track -- 13 circuits to one nautical mile/or 11.5 to the statute mile).

Azamara, like parent Celebrity Cruises, features an Elemis-run spa, with full complex of massage, beauty and wellness programs, including acupuncture. The fitness facility is quite spacious for a ship of this size and includes a full complement of popular machines (steppers, cross-trainers, treadmills, bikes, etc.), and a dedicated aerobics area. There are organized classes/activities, but they are thinly advertised in the daily schedule.

Fellow Passengers

This ship attracts an older (but active), well-traveled group who are looking for what are for them, hitherto unvisited ports of call. Different itineraries will attract a different demographic, but the line is marketed mostly to North Americans, who make up the lion's share of the guests.

Dress Code

Nighttime dress code is the increasingly popular "casual elegance." There are no formal nights, though some male passengers opted for jackets (with or without ties) for Captain's Welcome Aboard night and meals taken in the alternative dining venues. Daytime dress was dictated by whether it was a sea or port day, weather conditions and activity participation choices.

Azamara Journey Family & Children

Simply put, this is not a ship or cruise concept designed with families in mind. There is no kids' cruise staff; nor is there a designated area to entertain or watch over younger cruisers. Additionally, most itineraries slated for Azamara Journey are not likely to rate highly with children. However, for itineraries that do have family appeal -- such as sibling ship Azamara Quest's brief Caribbean season -- the line will bring onboard personnel to structure an ad hoc kids' cruise program.
