Azamara Cruises is a destination-immersive cruise line for upmarket travelers who want to not only see the places and cultures they visit, but to live them. Launched in 2007, Azamara offers a boutique European hotel ambience with extraordinary service, fine cuisine and wines from around the world, and wellness and vigor programs. Azamara Cruises consists of two intimate ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Each can carry 694 fortunate guests and because they are smaller and sleeker than larger ships, they can sail to ports that others cannot reach. Azamara focuses on immersive experiences with longer stays and overnight visits in ports of call. Many services are included, like gratuities, bottled water, coffee, teas, wines, and self-service laundry.

History

Founded in May 2007 as a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.'s Celebrity Cruises brand, Azamara Club Cruises was originally envisioned as an expansion of the Celebrity Cruises' sub-brand Celebrity Expeditions. However, because these ships were so distinct, it was decided that they deserved a line of their own.

As of April 2010, Azamara Club Cruises revamped operations by rebranding itself and its product. The line now focuses on becoming a value leader in premium cruising. Azamara Club Cruises offers overnight stays at a range ports of call in an effort to promote their foremost brand pillar "destination immersion."

Azamara Club Cruises raised cruise fares with the rebranding, but now includes complimentary wines during lunch and dinner, English Butler service in suites and beverages such as soda, water and coffee.
