And just what are Presidential Voyages, you may ask? Well, they’re very special cruises with our own President and CEO Larry Pimentel at the helm. (Actually, Larry’s not at the helm; that would be Captain Carl or Captain Johannes.) But Larry is onboard—accompanied by his wonderful wife, Sandi—and during these seven-day Presidential Voyages, they host onboard social events, informal get-togethers and of course some pretty AzAmazing EveningsSM throughout the week.
The first Presidential Voyage—7 Nights Springtime Along the Cote d’Azur—departs Barcelona, Spain, on April 3, and includes a very special AzAmazing Evenings event: Sète Joutes, the colorful sport of water jousting, which has been a tradition on Sète’s Royal Canal since 1666. In addition to this late night stay in Sète, France, the Azamara Quest will also have overnight or late night stays in Marseille, Cannes, St. Tropez, Nice, and Monte-Carlo. Oh la la!

Yes, yes, yes…this may be the title of a classic 70′s disco song, but it also describes the new Azamara enhancements heading your way! Things like:
MORE Incredible Nights Out on the Town…where beginning with our Europe season in 2013, you’ll enjoy a complimentary AzAmazing EveningsSM event to remember on every voyage—a chance to really see the advantages of longer and later stays in port! How does a night at the Polo Club Saint-Tropez sound—complete with competitions on the Honor Course, and canapés prepared by the Club’s Michelin-rated restaurant, and paired with French wines? Polo anyone?
MORE Inclusive Amenities…and yes, we’ve always been very inclusive, but effective with our 2013 Europe season, we’re really getting into “the spirits” of things. Complimentary select standard spirits, international beers and wines will be available at all bars, and a selection of international beers plus wines will be available at lunch and dinner. Cheers!

Ever want to journey from the Sultan’s Palace in Istanbul to the Acropolis in Athens—via the fabled city of Troy, the ancient ruins of Ephesus, and Greek Isles like Santorini and Mykonos?
Or sail from Copenhagen to Dublin, and in the process get to navigate the fjords of Norway, explore the lively seaport of Lerwick in the Shetland Islands, spend the night in Reykjavik (renowned for its nightlife!), and even visit the Isle of Man, where Azamara Quest Captain Carl Smith was born. (Trust us: You’ll love meeting his family, friends and other locals!)
These are just two of the AzAmazing 45 Europe voyages we have waiting for you in 2013. Even better? If you book before November 1, you’ll receive up to a $2,000 ChoiceAir credit per couple, a new complimentary AzAmazing Evenings event, and more inclusive amenities like select standard spirits, international beers and wines available at all ship bars throughout your journey. We’ll drink to that!
What? You’re still thinking about it? You need one final incentive? How about our prices will increase as of November 1, 2012. (Now that’s an incentive!)
