Azamara set to launch AzAmazing Evenings

Beginning March 27 and May 15, newly refurbished Azamara Club Cruises’ Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest will respectively launch AzAmazing Evenings, exclusive, custom-designed events designed to immerse guests in the cultures that intrigue them. The inclusive night touring experiences are “bespoke, intimate and authentic to the destinations where they take place.”Azamara’s upcoming Europe season also marks the inclusion of boutique wines, international beers and select standard spirits in the ships restaurants, bars and lounges when open. Travellers can also take advantage of up to $2,000 per stateroom in savings against the voyage fare when booking air through the cruise line’s ChoiceAir feature. “Travellers should not miss out on Azamara’s 2013 European season, where guests will be the first to enjoy our unique AzAmazing Evenings and even more onboard inclusives,”said Edie Bornstein, senior vice-president of marketing and sales for Azamara Club Cruises. “The voyages on our ships also will coincide with some of the continent’s most exciting special events and our longer stays and more overnights in port will provide guests the opportunity to not only see, but join in the celebration. The cruise line’s twin jewel-box ships will ply European waters through November, calling at familiar favourites such as Monte-Carlo, Ibiza and Santorini, as well as some of the less-trodden gems such as Sochi, Russia, host to the 2014-Winter Olympics; Cassis, France; and Propriano and Palamos, Spain. For an even more culturally rich experience, guests can combine two, three or more consecutive voyages that repeat nearly no ports and multiply their choices of AzAmazing Evenings and destination immersion. Travellers may also pair their vacation with a voyage that coincides with some of the region’s top cultural events, including Holy Week in Seville on March 27, the Monaco Grand Prix on May 23 or the British Open on July 14. All 2013 Europe voyages are available for booking. (
