Azamara is the new, deluxe cruise experience from Celebrity Cruises, catering for discerning travellers who long to reach out-of-the-ordinary destinations. Azamara prides itself on: butler service in every stateroom; shore excursions (Azamara prefer to call them shore immersions!), designed to let guests become part of the fabric of life in each destination, instead of merely being an observer; enrichment programs offering everything from culinary to photographic explorations; two specialty restaurants providing fine cuisine (Staterooms include three nights of complimentary specialty dining) and in addition live entertainment can be enjoyed nightly.
Azamara Cruises consists of two intimate ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Each can carry 694 fortunate guests to discover the hidden corners of the world that larger cruise ships simply cannot reach. In addition to offering a more personalized experience, the ships have recently undergone a $17.5 million revitalization with new European bedding and soft goods, flat screen televisions, new veranda decking and furniture, and wireless internet service in all staterooms and public areas. Plus, 93% of the staterooms offer ocean views and 68% have a private veranda. Appropriate attire onboard Azamara Cruises is always resort casual and there are no scheduled formal nights. However, guests should always feel comfortable in wearing formal attire if they so desire.
Azamara offer a world-class spa, with the finest therapists and aestheticians, featuring exclusive Elemis treatments. So whether you prefer aroma stone therapy, body sculpting, an exotic lime and ginger salt glow or a tri-enzyme resurfacing facial, you can treat yourself to a day of relaxation - all in a tranquil setting. For those looking to stay in shape, there’s yoga at sunset, Pilates, and access to the onboard Wellness consultant.
Azamara is a coined term derived from the Romance languages. This includes the more obvious links to blue (az) and the sea (mar). The name was also inspired by a star, Acamar. In classical times, the star Acamar was the most southerly bright star that could be seen from the latitude of Greece.
