Azamara's President & CEO Larry Pimentel Reveals Details About His October 1-8, 2013 President's Voyage!
"The '7 Nights Tuscany, Monte-Carlo & the French Riviera' is another favorite voyage of mine because we visit two of the most famous wine regions in Europe—Tuscany and Provence—and we plan to take full advantage of the opportunity to visit some of their vineyards as they are busy processing the 2013 harvest. And with two full days and a overnight in Livorno, we'll have time to do some shopping and sightseeing in Florence, visit a Tuscan winery, climb the leaning tower of Pisa and take a bike ride through ancient Lucca."
—Larry Pimentel, Azamara President & CEO

Celebrate autumn's golden days on this President's Voyage featuring hosted parties, informal get-togethers and a complimentary onshore event. Explore the treasures of Florence, the famous tower of Pisa, and the fine wines and cuisine of Tuscany. Bring your evening best for a night on the town in Monte-Carlo, and relax in Nice with a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais, the fragrant flower market, and fine art museums. In both Nice and St. Tropez, you'll have opportunities to explore the wines of Provence, from spicy rosés to the elegant white wines of Cassis. Learn the differences between the eight AOC-designated regions of Provence, and taste the wonderful Provencal cuisine that pairs so well with these sun-drenched grapes. As we set sail for Rome, we'll also stop to explore the villages, vineyards and lush landscapes of Elba.
Of Portuguese decent, Mr. Pimentel's family is from the Hawaiian Islands, so seas and ships are part of his DNA. He loves being in the cruise "business," particularly when he finds a good reason to be onboard, so both he and his wife are very excited to be a part of this special voyage. Just so you know, they both love the Mosaic Cafe, so you'll be sure to find them there should you want to meet them. Mr. Pimentel enjoys spending time with Azamara guests, and even more so, he appreciates feedback, be it good...or maybe not so good.
