Azamara Club Cruises Plans Fleet Refresh

Azamara Club Cruises’ 2 European boutique hotel-style ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest, are scheduled to receive ship-wide facelifts to update facilities and improve the cruising experience for guests, including a striking new dark-blue hull profile.


Onboard renovations will see the bedding and veranda furniture replaced in the staterooms and suites, while the public spaces will have carpets and upholstery in-line with the a new colour palette reflecting the cruise line’s inviting atmosphere. Always popular with cruisers, the swimming pool will be resurfaced, with the sun loungers and pool towels replaced, while the Spa and fitness center will be refreshed with a new steam room, showers, and state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio equipment.


On the culinary front, guests onboard will soon enjoy a new caviar and champagne bar within Aqualina, one of the ships’ two specialty dining venues, as well as a new chef’s table concept featuring three wine degustation menus – Italian, French and Californian. At Mosaic Café, the ships’ central gathering spot, guests will be able to purchase a freshly brewed cup of bespoke coffee, while the Casino Bar also will be expanded and enhanced with new furniture.


Azamara Quest will receive her enhancements at the Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz, Spain in early November 2012. She returns to service later that month to sail a 13-night Madeira and Canary Islands voyage, followed by a 4-night Spanish and Northern Africa voyage. The ship then departs for its South American season on 2 December 2012, embarking on a 16-night, trans-Atlantic voyage to Rio De Janeiro.


Sister ship Azamara Journey will enter Singapore’s Sembawang Shipyard for a 7-night renovation drydock in early January 2013. Following the refurbishment, Azamara Journey will continue her Asian season with a 13-night Indonesia voyage round-trip from Singapore on 13 January 2013.


The fleet refurbishment for Azamara Club Cruises comes as sister lines Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises successfully complete their fleet revitalization projects amidst the introduction of newer, better-equipped vessels from competitors. Touted as a destination-immersive cruise line for upmarket travellers, Azamara Club Cruises offers intimate destinations that larger ships cannot reach and immersive cruisetours complemented by all-inclusive amenities for greater convenience.
