Is this for you?
Azamara® have a real focus on Destination Immersion®, with visits to unique ports, and plenty of late-night departures and overnight stays in port and night touring. The ‘More Inclusive’ package includes meals, gratuities and selected standard spirits, international beers and wines, bottled water, soft drinks, speciality coffees and teas. There’s also one AzAmazing Evening® per cruise – a private experience with a unique insight into your destination’s culture (on voyages seven nights or longer).
Like Azamara Pursuit, this is a small ship that can reach more intimate ports and dock closer to the heart of some cities. Together, this means you can explore a country in more depth on one of the intensive single-nation voyages and you’ll have more time to explore many of the places you stop. The design onboard – from the dining venues and lounges to the spa and staterooms – is a modern twist on traditional ship style with clean lines alongside dark wood furnishings and marble features. Onboard entertainment includes lavish productions performed by the Azamara Signature Singers & Dancers in the Cabaret Lounge and White Night parties which take place out on the pool deck (on cruises seven nights or longer and weather dependent).
Our suggested stateroom: The Club Veranda Staterooms have a furnished balcony which is the best place to be as you sail in and out of ports along the coast of New Zealand.
