Azamara Debuts In Australia

Posted February 10th, 2017

Azamara Journey made her Australian debut this week, arriving in Darwin, her very first Australian port of call. Azamara Club Cruises’ second luxury ship is fresh from an extensive multi-million dollar makeover and delivers Azamara’s unique destination immersive style of cruising, with late night and overnight stays in ports and an expanded land offering, so guests can stay longer and experience more.

“We are very excited to be welcoming Azamara Journey to Australia for the first time. She is a completely new ship compared to her sister Azamara Quest who made her debut last summer, after a $25 million make over in April,” said Adam Armstrong, managing director, Azamara Club Cruises Australia and New Zealand.

The 690-guest ship departed Darwin at 9pm last night, continuing her 18-night Singapore to Sydney sailing. She’ll call at Thursday Island, Port Douglas, Cairns and Townsville before arriving in Sydney for the first time on Sunday 19 February.

About Azamara Club Cruises

Azamara is a boutique upmarket cruise line operating two 690 passenger ships, Azamara Journey and the Azamara Quest. Azamara Club Cruises differentiates itself - and gains loyal fans - by making destinations the hero. The wide selection of Destination Immersion programming offers guests the opportunity to Stay Longer and Experience More.  Capitalising on longer stays in port, more overnights and night touring, Azamara voyages deliver authentic cultural experiences across the globe.

The ships’ smaller size allows them to visit ports larger ships are unable to venture to. In 2017, Azamara will take passengers to more than 200 ports, in 68 countries, including 195 late night stays and 82 overnights. More than half of all of Azamara Journey’s maiden season calls stay longer or overnight in port. The brand offers unique and tailored Land Discoveries in each port to help guests uncover new destinations, from sailing in the Whitsundays, tasting your way around the Cairns Tablelands, exploring Hobbiton in Tauranga or visiting a local farm in Napier.

Although destinations are the highlight, what’s onboard also keeps guests coming back for more. Not only is Azamara Journey completely refreshed, guests onboard also receive exceptional and personal service and enjoy fine cuisine and boutique wines from around the world. More is included in each cruise – such as beverages, gratuities, self-service laundry, English Butler service for suite guests and shuttle transportation to city centres in ports, where available.
