THE LONG and SHORT OF IT

Extended Voyage Savings – Combine Two or More Consecutive Voyages into One and Save!

There’s simply no better way to immerse yourself into a region of the world than on an Extended Voyage with Azamara. These voyages seamlessly combine two, three, four or more consecutive voyages into one incredible regionally immersive experience. Most of you call them “back-to-back” cruises.

It offers travelers the opportunity to maximize staying in port longer and enjoying more overnights in more captivating destinations. With Azamara’s Extended Voyages you can enjoy the distinct customs of cultures around the world as you combine voyages into a single extended holiday.

Simultaneously, you’ll have more time to relax in our sophisticated and congenial onboard atmosphere on vessels that offer a European-boutique hotel ambience with extraordinary anticipatory service.

Remember on every voyage segment you’ll enjoy many complimentary amenities including boutique wines and beers at lunch and dinner; select standard spirits, beers and wines at all ship bars when open; bottled water and soft drinks, fine specialty coffees and teas; English butler service for suite guests, self-service laundry; shuttle to and from port communities where available.

If it’s an overnight port, then you’ll be able to explore the local nightlife in port and on each voyage you’ll experience a complimentary onshore AzAmazing Evenings event (except Transatlantic) which offers an up-close experience of local traditions—dance, music, theater and cuisine—in gorgeous private settings and landmarks.

Extended Voyage Savings are based on the length of each voyage combined:

  • Voyages of eight (8) days or less: $300 savings per voyage per stateroom (or $150 per person).
  • Voyages of nine (9) days or more: $400 savings per voyage per stateroom (or $200 per person).

During the reservation process, the system will automatically apply the savings and will be reflected in the guest confirmation. See website for terms and conditions.

We offer a 28-page brochure, “The 2013 Extended Voyages Collection” which features a collection of longer voyages. They can be ordered online through our website or you can view and/or download it by clicking on the link to “2013 Extended Voyages.”
