2015 CRUISE CRITIC EDITORS' PICKS
  • Best Itineraries: Azamara Club Cruises (USA)

    “For good reason, fans of this upscale cruise line await itinerary releases with anticipation. With smaller ships and a commitment to destination immersion, Azamara usually goes where everyone else isn't -- a mindset that appeals to a range of travelers.”

  • Best Shore Excursions: Azamara Club Cruises (USA and UK)

    “Besides being able to visit less-trafficked ports, Azamara wins points for its range of shore excursions. Land Discoveries small-group cultural experiences would be hard to arrange on your own, while Nights in Cool Places tours take advantage of the line's overnight stops. And don't forget Azamazing Evenings -- complimentary cultural outings held at least once per voyage.”
