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.

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

Azamara Cruises Cruiser Reviews

Never take the first voyage

We arrived to the ship on the time and day of embarkment, But the ship and crew were not ready for embarkment, and they left us all waiting outside for quite a while.It was evident that the ship had not been fully ready for us.Read More

Overall excellent cruise with great service

Before I ever boarded the ship, two or three shore excursions were cancelled and I received full refunds.The only two issues I had were the cancellation of every one of my shore excursions and my stateroom upgrade.Read More

Hit or miss food, inattentive cabin staff

The Prime C (steak house) menu of the day was taken directly from Aqualina, the Italian specialty dining venue next door.However, I found the food in the main dining room to be a real letdown (especially the bread, desserts, and ice cream).Read More

Food Better than October Voyage on Quest

Amazing service during that trip and while the service this time was very good it wasn't as impressive or sharp as in October.Food was good and so was planning and execution.Read More
