Azamara Journey bound for Oz

Azamara Club Cruises are doubling down on the upcoming Australian cruise season with not one but two boutique ships headed our way. Fresh from her US$25 million dollar refurbishment, Azamara Journey will be joining the Azamara Quest in just six months time.

To mark the milestone, president and CEO Larry Pimentel is in Australia making final arrangements for the arrival.

“Wherever in the world we sail, the Australian effect is unmistakable. Australia is one of our top three source markets  worldwide, which is why it made sense to finally bring our unique style of small-ship, slow cruising down under last season,” Pimentel said.

“We were incredibly impressed with the response when we debuted Azamara Quest in Australia last summer so the time is absolutely right to bring sister ship Azamara Journey down under for the very first time,” he continued.

“When Azamara Journey arrives, she’ll be completely unlike the ship you saw last season. She will sail to Australian shores refreshed and renewed after a multi-million dollar revitalization that took place earlier this year”. 

The revitalisation of both Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest saw the addition of new venues and technologies, along with a redesign and rework of her suites and staterooms, plus a complete refresh of all public spaces.
