Azamara gets the blues ... ships to be given full facelift and new coloured hull

Azamara Club Cruises is to renovate its two European boutique hotel-style ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest.

Both ships are scheduled to enter drydock, in 2012 and 2013 respectively, when each will receive a shipwide facelift and a new profile with a dark-blue hull.
Renovations will include

  • New carpets, upholstery, and a new colour palette in public spaces, to reflect the cruise line’s inviting atmosphere
  • New mattresses and upgraded veranda furniture for suites and staterooms
  • A resurfaced pool, with new sun loungers and pool towels on the outer decks
  • The Casino Bar will also be expanded and enhanced with new furniture, while the Spa and fitness centre will be refreshed with a new steam room, showers, and state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio equipment.

    Furthermore, a range of enhancements will be made behind the scenes in the staff and crew area to add to the comfort of the cruise line’s most valuable asset.

    On the culinary front, guests onboard will soon enjoy a new caviar and champagne bar within Aqualina, one of the ships’ two speciality dining venues, as well as a new Chef’s Table concept featuring three wine degustation menus – Italian, French and Californian.

    At Mosaic Café, the ships’ central gathering spot, guests will be able to purchase a freshly brewed cup of bespoke coffee.

    Azamara Quest will spend eight nights in drydock at Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz, Spain, starting 7 November 2012. With renovations complete, she will then sail a 13-night Madeira and Canary Islands voyage, beginning 15 November, followed by a four-night Spanish and Northern Africa voyage on 28 November.

    The ship will then depart on 2 December, for a 16-night, trans-Atlantic voyage to Rio De Janeiro for its South America season.

    Azamara Journey will enter Singapore’s Sembawang Shipyard - a subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine -  on 6 January 2013, for a seven-night renovation drydock. She will then continue her Asia season with a 13-night Indonesia voyage round-trip from Singapore on 13 January 2013.
