Come this March 27, you’ll want to be in sizzling Seville for some pretty spectacular celebrations. Yes, we know, we know…there’s a whole lot of alliteration going on there, but for very good (superb?) reasons!
First of all, it will be Semana Santa in Seville—the world’s most elaborate Holy Week celebration, where dozens of church brotherhoods march in procession through the streets, followed by ornate floats, most of which are centuries’ old artistic masterpieces. While strictly speaking this is a religious festival, the week is dedicated to fun and frivolity as well, “with restaurants and bars filled day and night with entire families, from grandparents to babes in arms staying up until three or four in the morning.”
March 27 is also the official launch of our new enhancements on the Azamara Quest. You’ll be able to experience a whole host of inclusive amenities, including standard spirits and an international selection of beers and wines available throughout the voyage. Cheers to that!
And one of the new enhancements we’re most excited about is our complimentary AzAmazing Evenings—a chance to really see the advantages of longer and later stays in port. Our very first AzAmazing Evening event will take place on March 28 and will celebrate “The Tastes & Traditions of Andalucia.”
The evening will begin at the 170-year-old winery Gonzalez Byass, purveyor of world-famous sherries. You’ll be able to explore the cellars, and enjoy a guided tasting to discover which variety of sherry most pleases your personal palate. Thus refreshed, you’ll be ready for the short hop to the nearby Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, for a private performance of equestrian ballet where magnificent horses, and riders in 18th century costumes, perform choreographed movements all set to music.
So this March 27, come join us on the Azamara Quest in Seville. You’ll be AzAmazed at the journey, the destinations, and the evenings!
