What is Azamara?
Sold by Royal Caribbean Group in January 2021, Azamara is already expanding under its new owners, Sycamore Partners. The destination-focused line has brought forth a ship, Azamara Onward - the former Pacific Princess - which, like the rest of the fleet, is a Renaissance Cruises R-class. But regular customers needn't worry. In fact, they'll notice little change under the new ownership, as many itineraries will continue to be based on single countries, with late nights and overnight stays in port. The signature AzAmazing evenings - exclusive shore-based cultural events - and optional pre or post-cruise land tours are also staying.
Why choose this cruise line?
Azamara Club Cruises focus on Destination Immersion experiences which let you stay longer and experience more on every one of the cruise line's voyages.
This means you get to explore everything from nightlife in Stockholm and morning walks in the French Riviera to all-day adventures in Costa Rica’s rain forests.
You’ll also experience incredibly scenic waterways and prime docking locations—two great advantages of the boutique-style award-winning ships.
You’ll find people who are genuinely friendly and happy to make you feel welcomed, and with a maximum of 702 guests, staff and crew can quickly learn your name, tastes, and preferences, too. Plus, you’ll enjoy lots of inclusive amenities.
