Late night and overnight stays among new features of Azamara Club cruises in 2014
More late-night and overnight stays in port are among he exciting initiatives of Azamara Club Cruises in its 2014 programme of twin boutique ships Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest.
The cruises will enable guests to experience the nightlife of compelling destinations around the world that larger ships cannot reach, and include a record-45 maiden port calls, such as the UNESCO World Geopark Langkawi, Malaysia; Maura in the Sultanate of Brunei; and the charming island-village Vila do Abraao, a favourite Brazilian getaway.
Azamara Journey will cruise throughout the East and South China seas from January to April 2014
Guests can choose among 72 new voyages, ranging from four to 17 nights and visiting 240 destinations in 66 countries throughout Europe, the Far East, Central and South America, the Caribbean and the Western US coast.
“One hundred per cent of Azamara’s 2014 voyages feature late night and overnight stays in port to offer guests the opportunity to enjoy the nightlife of some of the world’s most vibrant places,” says Azamara president Larry Pimentel.
Most of Azamara Club Cruises voyages are designed so that travellers can combine two or more consecutive voyages for an extended travel experience and not repeat a port call.
Azamara Journey will sail 12- to 17-night voyages throughout the East and South China seas from January through April 2014, alternating departures from Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Mumbai and Chennai.
On these sailings, guests will visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as Halong Bay, Borobudur, Parambanan and Sangiran, and enjoy the nightlife of cities such as Tokyo, Shanghai and Bangkok to name a few, during their overnight stays. The ship then repositions via the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal to arrive for its European season in May
Azamara Quest will offer a pair of trans-Panama Canal voyages between Miami (Florida) and Costa Rica, plus a new series of Sea of Cortez and Central America sailings, ranging from 10- to 14-nights.
A unique eight-night Coastal California Wine Country voyage departs roundtrip from Los Angeles on 10 February 2014, to explore the 31st State’s famous wine region plus a three-day call at San Francisco. Azamara Quest will also sail an 11-night voyage to less-trodden islands of the Caribbean, such as St John’s, St Barth’s and Virgin Gorda, before returning to Europe in April
Both Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest will again sail European waters throughout summer 2014, offering guests immersive adventures at some of the region’s most exciting destinations and cultural celebrations.
Azamara Quest will sail a 15-night trans-Atlantic sailing from Miami to Nice (France), while Azamara Journey will reposition via the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal
Azamara Journey will sail four- to 14-night voyages, ranging throughout the Mediterranean, North and Baltic seas. On the 19 May sailing, Azamara Journey will meet Azamara Quest at St Tropez and Monte Carlo, where, for the first time, guests onboard both ships can join in the excitement of the Monaco Grand Prix.
Guests can also choose among three Baltic sailings in July: a seven-, 10-, or 12-night itinerary, which all feature three full days at St Petersburg (Russia). Foodies should not miss the 14-night Food and Wine voyage, departing Southampton on 20 August, which features two-night stays at Nantes (Loire Valley) and Bordeaux, France
Azamara Quest will mainly sail in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Aegean and Black sea
Azamara Quest will mainly sail in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Aegean and Black seas, on seven- to 12-night voyages. A unique 11-night Mediterranean Easter sailing, departing 11 April, offers guests an overnight at Civitavecchia, the gateway to Rome, for an opportunity to attend Palm Sunday mass in the Vatican, and at Livorno for Easter Sunday in Florence.
Travellers also can choose among a seven-, nine-, and 12-night Black Sea sailings, sailing from Istanbul. The 20 August sailing takes guests on a comprehensive 12-night itinerary throughout the region, including a call at Sochi, Russia, site of the 2014 winter Olympic Games
