Luxury Cruise Line Azamara Christens Third Cruise Ship

Azamara Club Cruises, a luxury cruise line owned by Royal Caribbean, officially named their third cruise ship, Azamara Pursuit, at a christening ceremony in Southampton, U.K..

Following the naming ceremony, the vessel set sail for a two-night voyage to Cherbourg, France to kick off the festivities with an AzAmazing Afternoon event. Inspired by Azamara’s signature AzAmazing Evenings – a complimentary excursion offered to guests to connect them with the local culture and discover the destination’s heritage – the afternoon was designed to enable guests to uncover and embrace the true nature of the destination through rare moments that reflect the French town’s personality and authentic charm.

The celebration began with exploring a quintessential French market that was constructed steps from the gangway and consisted of stalls selling flowers, cheeses & fresh fruits, pastries, French wines, baguettes, and much more. Later in the afternoon, Main Hall at La Cité de la Mar was transformed into a cabaret house where guests enjoyed performances by a 15-piece orchestra, dancers, a solo singer, among others.

Honoring Azamara’s commitment to Destination Immersion guests on board also had the opportunity to connect with the local culture from a selection of curated shore programming. Experiences ranged from viewing Bayeux Tapestry – which depicts the events leading up to Norman conquest of England – and Panoramic Cherbourg, offering views of the city’s most historic landmarks, including Abbey of Our Lady of the Vow, a 12th century Catholic monastery and former marine hospital.

The voyage concluded with a White Night celebration, an evening soirée where cruisers can enjoy a feast served poolside by Azamara’s officers and crew before dancing late into the night.

Azarama Pursuit has sailed under several different cruise lines over the past 18 years.  They include Renaissance Cruises, Princess Cruises, Fathom, and most recently, P&O Cruises.
