I’m sure you enjoyed looking at the before and after photos of the enhancements and upgrades that were accomplished throughout the Azamara Quest during its November 2012 dry-dock. On January 14, 2013, the Azamara Journey will emerge from its dry-dock facelift with the same refinements and dark-blue painted hull.

You’ve had a chance to see some of the renovations on the Azamara Quest, which include new carpets, upholstery, and a new color palette in public spaces. The Casino Bar’s expansion with new furniture created a more inviting atmosphere for guests to mingle, visit with their onboard friends and make new ones. The spa and fitness center was refreshed with a new steam room, showers, and state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio equipment. Further upgrades include new mattresses and veranda furniture for suites and staterooms, a resurfaced pool and new sun loungers and pool towels on the outer decks.
With our longer stays, more overnights and night touring–and with the numerous awards and guest feedback we’ve received over the past year–we know and appreciate that you love where we take you. But come this November and January, you’ll also love where we take the Azamara Quest and the Azamara Journey!
It’s refinement time for the Azamara Quest November 7-15, 2012, and for the Azamara Journey January 6-13, 2013. This means a whole host of new refurbishments and upgrades to our European boutique-style ships, including:
Ship Enhancements–Newly painted dark blue hulls, new carpets and upholstery, plus resurfaced pool with new sun loungers and pool towels
Stateroom & Suite Upgrades–New mattresses, and newly refreshed balconies with upgraded furniture
Fitness & Spa Equipment–Upgraded steam room and showers and new state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio equipment
Dining Experiences–New caviar and champagne bar in Aqualina; new Chef’s Table concept with three wine degustation menus (Italian, French and Californian); new contemporary color palette in Mosaic Café, Discoveries Restaurant and Lounge; and new furniture and an expanded and new bar area in the Casino Bar
Captain and Crew Areas–Newly refurbished Captains’ Quarters to allow for small intimate cocktail gatherings by invitation, and significant improvements in the crew recreational areas
If you remember our Azamara Scores Big in Cruise Critic’s 2012 Cruisers’ Choices Awards , we made a casual reference to the “little engine that could.” Since then, our tiny, two-ship cruise line continues to hungrily huff and puff its way to the top. And speaking of hungry, our intimate boutique ships, the Azamara Quest and the Azamara Journey may be small in comparison to other grandiose cruise ships, but they certainly carry their weight within the cruising industry. Especially when it comes to feeding our guests. This is typically what we have available onboard to ensure we can provide a full ship with the most delicious cuisines. Click here to read more

Romance is everywhere this month and we’re taking it to the high seas.

And if that doesn’t set the mood, there’s nothing that quickens the pulse like $500 onboard spending credit per stateroom to go along the cultural European and Mediterranean beauty.
