Azamara Club Cruises has officially launched cruise itineraries for the first quarter of 2021. The boutique cruise line owned by Royal Caribbean has confirmed its return to Japan with new country-intensive voyages – where guests can explore numerous ports within one country and stay late or overnight in most cities – in addition to debuting its newest ship – Azamara Pursuit – in Australia and New Zealand.
Continuing its dedication to Destination Immersion experiences around the world, Azamara will set sail across four continents between January and March 2021. This includes 50 late nights and 37 overnight stays in some of the most sought-after destinations across the globe.
Back by popular demand, the Japan country-intensive sailings will give guests the opportunity to delve deeper than ever into the destination. These 15 and 16-night itineraries will visit up to 13 ports across the country – including Tokyo, Aomori, Hakodate and Kobe – whilst offering a range of immersive excursions to showcase the local culture of each region (excursions will be available in 2019).
Azamara Pursuit, which set sail in August 2018 after a top-to-toe refit, will also make its debut in Australia and New Zealand. Visiting 18 ports in total, highlights will include Sydney and Melbourne in Australia and Auckland, Napier and Akaroa in New Zealand. Over half the itineraries are also country-intensive voyages.
In addition, Azamara will offer even more ways to experience South America and South Africa. The line will launch a Rio Carnival sailing on Azamara Quest, plus a South Africa country-intensive sailing on Azamara Journey.
