At Azamara®, the world is your oyster—and this oyster comes with internationally acclaimed ships ready to take you to some of the amazing destinations in the world. Our 686-guest club-like ships also take you to ports where larger ships won’t fit, like in the heart of Marseille, Amalfi, and Crete, or even to the doorstep of Bangkok (while other large cruise lines dock a few hours away).
And once you arrive, you’ll discover things in port you won’t find on other ships. Like night. Our focus on Destination Immersion® means we spend more time in ports than any other cruise line, which gives you more time to fully experience the culture, cuisine, scenery, and people of your destinations. And at the end of the day (or night), you can rest easy knowing you have award-winning accommodations to come back to.
But no matter where we are in the world, you’ll always enjoy a host of unmatched inclusive amenities—such as standard spirits, international beers and wines, gratuities, and an AzAmazing Evenings® event—all with our compliments. You’ll also love the feeling of community you won’t find anywhere else, thanks to an attentive and genuinely friendly staff who know your name, tastes and preferences, and a crew who really like to mingle with guests, point out special things at sea and onshore, and go above and beyond your expectations.
