About Azamara Cruises

Azamara's fleet serves up a delightful ambiance that's a hybrid of luxury and destination-immersive cruising. The ships, which hold only 690 passengers each, offer a superb blend of amenities, yet they are small enough to feel friendly and cozy.

Azamara Cruise Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Azamara cruise ships?

Azamara primarily attracts baby boomers who are active and well-traveled, and looking for port-intensive itineraries that include marquee cities and offbeat places. About 60 percent come from North America, 18 percent from the U.K., 11 percent from Australia and New Zealand, and the remainder from the rest of the world.

Do I have to dress up on a Azamara cruise?

Yes and no. The dress code does prohibit bare feet, tank tops, baseball caps, bathing suits and shorts in the dining room or specialty restaurants, and jeans are not permitted anywhere after 6 p.m., but formal wear is never required. In general, most women wear sundresses and pant and blouse outfits in the evening, while men will put on nice pants and collared shirts. In the casual Windows Cafe, cruisers can dress more casually even at dinner but are always required to wear shoes and a cover-up or shirt.

Is everything free on Azamara cruises?

No, but the fare is semi-inclusive, with items like select standard spirits, international beers and wines, gratuities, bottled water, soft drinks, specialty coffees and teas, self-service laundry, shuttle service to and from port communities (where available) and concierge services for personal guidance and reservations all included.

All cruises, except transatlantic and transpacific sailings, also include one special evening shore excursion, referred to as an AzAmazing Evening, a private onshore experience that is specially arranged by the cruise line for its passengers.

On top of all the standard inclusions, suite passengers also receive English butler service and free dining in specialty restaurants.

Extra costs include specialty dining, shore excursions, Wi-Fi, spa treatments and retail store purchases.

What are Azamara’s most popular activities?

Azamara's shoreside activities are the real attention-getters. Shore excursions are divided into different types (Taste Local, Bike Local, Meet Local) and often sell out. Many passengers take advantage of overnight excursion options to inland cities like Berlin, Madrid and Moscow or to UNESCO World Heritage sites like Bagan and Angkor Wat that require full days or longer.

In the evening, passengers gather for shows, one of which is an at-sea version of New York supper club and cabaret, Feinstein's 54 Below with Broadway talent, along with local dancers and musicians from the destinations. Enrichment lectures with the World Wildlife Fund Guest Speaker Series are well attended, and foodies hit the culinary demonstrations and wine tastings. There are ship parties, like ABBA Night, dancing in the Living Room and occasionally karaoke, but destination immersion rules.

Why go with Azamara?

  • Itineraries in Europe, Asia, Australia, West Indies, Central and North America
  • Tips, all nonalcoholic and select alcoholic drinks, and more included in fares
  • Smaller vessels with personalized service

Best for: Baby boomers, older Gen Xers and foodies who prize destination immersion and experiences rather than things

Not for: Big-ship cruisers looking for lots onboard activities and late-night parties

Ignore the Negative Noise

a few lunches and special brunches were also excellent, with unbelievably great service.We chose this cruise because it gave us the opportunity to try a Club Continent Suite at a very reasonable cost.Read More

Israel, Egypt & Cypress: excellent excursions, good food, and good service

I rank Azamara second to my cruise with Cunard in their Junior Queen suites and slightly above Oceania, which had a newer ship, but their food overall was not as good as Azamara's.I did not sleep well the entire cruise due to the temperature even though the bed was comfortable.Read More

Great First Experience of Azamara

We used the main discovery restaurant for all our evening meals and again found the service, quality and choices more than good enough that we never felt the need to use the optional restaurants.The Windows Cafe buffet restaurant always had enough room and the quality of the buffet and service provided were the best we have found at sea.Read More

FABULOUS ITINERARY - PLEASANT CRUISE, BUT FAR FROM LUXURIOUS

We did two excursions through the ship - Drach Caves (excellent) and HOHO bus in Barcelona, which included a Day Pass to several attractions, but was poorly managed, provided no guidance, and took too long to visit more than any one site in the city.In one port, a woman not associated with Azamara was handing out maps that had the ship at a different location entirely and unsuspecting passengers were led astray.Read More
