The essence of your

land experience—at sea.

At Azamara Club Cruises® it’s all about the journey and the destination—that’s why we’ve created onboard programming that will educate, inform and immerse you in the places you’ll visit on your voyage. Our destination-focused programming includes port-of-call lectures to help you make the most of your time on shore. Learn about destination highlights, history and culture, and lesser-known shore excursions that might just be right up your alley from experts that know these cities inside and out. Foodie? History buff? Nature lover? We also offer Cruise Global, Connect Local℠ shore excursion seminars so you can find the ideal onshore experience that fits your travel style.

And it’s not all just talk! You’ll get a taste of your destinations with immersive programming that brings local flavors on board. Sniff, sip, and sample regional varietals at specially curated wine tastings. Practice your pasta-making skills or try some tapas at an interactive culinary demonstration. In our Discoveries Restaurant, our chefs source fresh, local ingredients in most ports to craft destination-inspired menus that offer an elegant interpretation of local dishes.

There is so much to learn about your destination—start experiencing everything it has to offer before you step on shore.

Local culinary experiences

Get a taste of your destination onboard. Our chefs use locally sourced ingredients for each evening’s meal, and the menus in Discoveries rotate to feature our take on the local favorites of ports you’ll visit on your voyage. When it comes to wine, we bring local varietals from well-known wine regions—like France, Italy and New Zealand—back onboard when we stop in port.


Experience the sights, sounds and steps of your destination when we bring local dance troupes, musicians, and singers onboard for authentic cultural performances. For even more destination-focused fun, we’ve got locally themed movies and trivia on tap.

Guest Lectures

Enrich your onboard experience with presentations by guest lecturers. Experts in their fields, they will share their knowledge to provide a deeper understanding of the destinations you’ll visit.
