Azamara Cruises

Cruise Style: Premium/Deluxe 

In a surprise move, two ships destined for service in the Celebrity Cruises fleet were spun off to create Azamara Cruises. Dedicated to offering professional service and culinary excellence, the new cruise line is setting the bar high. Signature amenities include butler service for all passengers, destination-intensive itineraries, and fully equipped spas with an acupuncture suite, therapy pool, and relaxation area. Contemporary art collections grace both ships. Smoking is limited to a small area of the observation lounge as well as a spot adjacent to the pool bar.

Special Features

Aside from the upscale ambiance, the menus designed by culinary partner Elizabeth Blau for the main dining rooms and specialty restaurants offer an incentive to cruise on an Azamara ship. Modern flavors add zip to the lighter, contemporary dishes, yet passengers will find a mix of classic choices along with the trendier cuisine. Unique menus have been created for 14 nights so there is plenty of choice on longer sailings. Alternative restaurants are Prime C, serving steaks and seafood, and Aqualina, which features American favorites with a Mediterranean flair.

All passengers receive one night of complimentary dining in a specialty restaurant, while guests who book suites are entitled to two. Additional fees: Prime C is $25 per person (including gratuity but excluding alcoholic beverages); Aqualina is $20 per person (including gratuity but excluding alcoholic beverages); for Aqualina's tastings menu, a multi-course meal featuring food-and-wine pairings, the fee is $50 per person (this does not include gratuity but includes wine).

Country club casual attire is suggested for all evenings; dining is open seating, with reservations required in specialty restaurants. Casual evening dining is also available.

Your Shipmates

Azamara cruisers are experienced travelers, primarily couples ranging from their mid-30’s to mid-50’s who wish to visit exotic ports of call. Lengthier cruises attract passengers in the over-60 age group.

Junior Cruisers

Families are welcomed, but there is no dedicated children's program or play area.
