New deluxe line Azamara Cruises has revealed a varied series of itineraries for 2009, including 20 new ports and overnight stays in some of the most romantic cities on the continent.

President Dan Hanrahan explained: “We’ve been thrilled with the response to our 2008 European itineraries this year, and are really building on that in 2009. No other deluxe brand offers the number of ports Azamara will visit next year, nor matches our breadth of distinct itineraries.”

The 600-passenger Azamara Quest and Journey will sail a series of 7-15-night Europe voyages, visiting 91 ports in 36 countries, and depart from five different home-ports: Athens, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Rome and Venice. Overnight stays will be offered in Barcelona, Edinburgh, Florence, Istanbul, Ravenna, St. Petersburg and Stockholm.
