1. Cinque Terre, Italy

Cinque Terre, Italy

Hermi Z. shared this stunning photo of Manarola, taken during his Azamara cruise. We'll be traveling here again in May 2015.

2. Buenos Aires, Argentina

Buenos Aires, Argentina

If the La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires reminds you of Europe, you're on the right track - many of its early settlers came from Genoa, Italy. See it in person during this South American cruise in February.

3. Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy

Take in the many colorful houses of Venice during a gondola ride! We make lots of voyages to the charming Italian town.

4. Burano, Italy

Burano, Italy

If you think Venice is too crowded or touristy, try one of the nearby islands like Burano. Gary H. took this photo during his Azamara cruise. In the mood for shopping? Burano is known for its beautiful lace, and the nearby island of Murano for its Venetian glass. Our 2014 Destination Guide can help you plan your visit.

5. Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark

Nyhavn is a 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment hub in Copenhagen. Thanks to its historical wooden ships and brightly colored townhouses, bars, cafes and restaurants, it is a fun (and photogenic!) place to visit. We have cruises stopping in Copenhagen in 2015 and 2016.

6. Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona, Spain

Park Güell is one of the most recognizable sites in Barcelona. Designed by Catalan architext Antoni Gaudi in the early 1900s, the complex park is one of the largest architectural works in Southern Europe. The colorful "Works of Antoni Gaudi" is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This 10-night Mediterranean cruise in November is a must for art and architecture lovers.

7. Santorini, Greece

Santorini, Greece

Santorini may be known for its whitewashed villages, but bright blue roofs and pink, orange and yellow pops of color have landed it on our list. Make a stop in the village of Oia during one of these Greek Islands cruises.

8. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Puerto Vallarta's architecture is as vibrant as its nightlife. This resort town boasts legendary beaches, award-winning restaurants and bustling bars. We'll be returning to this port in 2016!

9. Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn, Estonia

This Baltic port is a favorite of many Azamara cruisers. Once you see it, you'll understand why - the quaint port appears to be straight from the pages of a fairytale. During this cruise, we won't depart until 8pm giving guests plenty of time to explore.

10. Positano, Italy

Positano, Italy

Vanessa J. took this colorful photo during her Spring cruise on the Azamara Journey. Positano is one of the many beautiful villages to visit along the Amalfi Coast. This May 2015 voyage will give guests three days in the region.

11. Singapore, Singapore

Singapore, Singapore

When it comes to some cities, you simply must see them at night. Singapore is one of those cities. This December 2014 cruise ends with an overnight stay there, giving guests the opportunity to extend there trip and spend even more time in the vibrant hub city.

12. Chania, Crete

Chania, Crete

Azamara guest Larry K. shared this photo with us, and it perfectly captures the vivid colors of Chania. Our guests have enjoyed several memorable AzAmazing Evening events in this port, and will again in September.
