Why is it Smart to Book Azamara Club Cruises’ Land Discoveries?

Experience, Convenience, Priority Departure, Peace-of-Mind, Flexibility, Night Touring

LiftAzamara specializes in Destination Immersion… meaning longer stays, more overnights and night touring in ports of call. No other cruise line spends as much time in port, which offers the opportunity to be more creative and unusual in development of our shore excursions, or “Land Discoveries®,” as we call them.

Have you explored the many Land Discoveries available on our voyages? Visit our website to download a brochure of Land Discoveries coupled with the voyage dates in which you are interested.

Guided by local experts, these small-group onshore excursions are a great way to experience local life and culture in every port, and meet local people, too. There’s something for everyone: adventurous hikes and bike rides, shopping and dining, historic sites and neighborhoods, vineyard tours, and even a complimentary Destination Immersion event – an AzAmazing EveningSM custom designed for guests on virtually every voyage. We want to take you far beyond the ordinary!

Top 10 Tips to Taking Better Vacation Photos

Photographs are some of the best souvenirs you can bring back from a vacation – they are inexpensive, they don’t take up any luggage space, and best of all they can be cherished for a lifetime. Follow these tips on your next Azamara Club Cruise voyage and you’ll bring back photos that will wow your friends and family, and provide wonderful memories of your amazing adventure.

We’d love to see some of your favorite photos from your Azamara cruise, so please share them with us via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!


1. Do a Little Research – Before you go on vacation, take a little time to get to know the features and settings of your camera, whether it’s just the camera on your iPhone or a professional camera with tons of features. Also, learning the history of an area can help to highlight photo ops that you may have otherwise passed by.

2. Mix it Up – Don’t be afraid to mix up the type of photos you take. Instead of taking photos at eye level, get low or climb high to take shots from different perspectives. Everyone takes photos of Rome’s Colosseum, make yours special by focusing on the light streaming through an archway.

3. Try, Try Again – The beauty of using a digital camera is that you can take hundreds of photos before your memory is full, so if you can’t get the photo to turn out on the first try, keep trying. Don’t delete your photos right away either, keep them until you have time to give your photos a full review on a large screen (See Tip 9).

Some of you might be wondering why we consider this our third anniversary, since “Azamara Cruises” began in 2007. Let me take you through the evolution of Azamara!

In December 2009, Azamara Cruises was re-launched as Azamara Club Cruises. The term “club” was added to our name to represent our personalized relationships with our guests, the promise of a high standard of service and the feeling Azamara guests have of belonging to an exclusive club. At the helm of the new brand of parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. was Larry Pimentel as CEO and President.
