Yes, it’s possible to be an “armchair” traveler when you’re a guest sailing aboard Azamara Club Cruises® Azamara Journey® or Azamara Quest®.
When you visit our serene, wood paneled onboard library with its dramatic recessed ornamental ceiling, whose name has been enhanced to ‘The Drawing Room by Assouline,’ you’ll be able to comfortably relax as you immerse yourselves into spectacular destinations through the exquisitely crafted books by Assouline, a creator of fine, illustrated books.
Through an exclusive partnership between Azamara and Assouline, you will find more than 200 titles of their fine illustrated books, luxury editions and gift lines that reflect the destinations where our ships sail. Titles featured for guests to enjoy include American Fashion Travel, Condé Nast Traveler: Room with a View, In the Spirit of St. Barths, Lights of Venice and Lights of Istanbul along with others dedicated to photography, art, and ancient philosophies.
In fact Larry Pimentel our president and CEO, believes that “Assouline’s books will help enhance our guests’ onboard experience and provide the unique and enlivening views into cultures and destinations. Azamara offers up-market travelers the opportunity to live some of the vivid imagery depicted in the pages of Assouline titles.” Also, you’ll discover that they complement our destination immersive travel experience of longer stays and more overnights in ports. Assouline’s founder, Prosper Assouline, stated that “Our Company is based on a pursuit of discovery of the arts, culture, and style and these passions are a great complement for travel with Azamara.” Assouline’s extensive collection of books also will be available for guests to purchase onboard and then shipped to their home. Also, some titles are immediately available on board.
I predict that “The Drawing Room by Assouline” will become the “go-to place” to recharge your “destination immersion” batteries. Leafing through Assouline’s books with its stunning photographs of unique and enlivening views into cultures and destinations will stimulate your imagination with a new and/or different aspect for you to discover as you plan your upcoming “land discovery” that you might have never even considered. It’s the perfect stimulant without any side-effects.
By immersing yourself in an Assouline viewing experience, you’ll ensure that, “you’ll love where we take you!”
