Azamara Club Cruises' new itineraries for 2013 allow guests to choose among a total of 69 voyages aboard our two European boutique-hotel style ships, Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. Select voyages coincide with cultural celebrations, such as Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, the Monaco Grand Prix, the Andalusian Festival and The British Open, to offer guests a truly destination-immersive travel experience.
Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest will visit nearly 40 new ports in 2013, including Beijing (Xingang), Shanghai (Haitong) and Jinhae, South Korea in the Far East; as well as charming Amasra (Safranbolu), Turkey, and 2014-Winter Olympic host-city Sochi, Russia in the Black Sea. Cassis, France; Propriano, Corsica; and Palamos, Spain also will be maiden ports in the Mediterranean, as well as idyllic Honningsvaag, Gudvangen, Tromso, and Svolvaer (Lofoten) on the Norwegian Coast.
We continue to offer more late-night and overnight stays in ports than any cruise operator to offer guests the chance to savor a destination's nightlife, and oftentimes, after the other cruise ships have departed.
Guests also can choose among two President's Voyages in 2013. President and CEO Larry Pimentel and his wife Sandi will join guests on these special voyages and host parties, informal get-togethers, and a complimentary shore event. Guests will enjoy a destination-immersive travel experience as the cruise line's chief visionary does, as well as receive a special gift.
